MSNBC reporters asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders about the cancelation of “Roseanne” Tuesday.
Sanders didn’t play into the outrage news cycle, and responded by saying that there was no comment and she didn’t know when there would be one.
“We don’t have anything from the White House yet, except for this from our White House unit,” Tur said.
“‘We just saw Sarah Sanders in the hallway and she had no comment about Roseanne Barr getting cancelled. We asked when the White House would have a comment, she indicated it was not clear.'”
Roseanne got into hot water Tuesday after sending an offensive tweet about Valerie Jarrett. Though Roseanne apologized, her show was cancelled anyway. (RELATED: BREAKING: ABC Cancels ‘Roseanne’)
She was a public supporter of President Trump.

UPDATE: CBS White House Correspondent Mark Knoller tweeted later Tuesday:
No @POTUS or WH comment on @therealroseanne comment or cancellation. Though Pres phoned congrats to Barr after her first show, @PressSec says president now focused on more important matters including NK, trade, rebuilding the military, and the economy.
