Michelle Wolf Rips ABC For Hiring ‘Openly Racist’ Roseanne ‘In The First Place’

Comedian Michelle Wolf slammed Roseanne Barr, the ABC network, and President Trump during a pre-released segment of her Netflix show “The Break.”

“It’s not a joke, it’s barely a tweet,” Wolf said of Barr’s tweet comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to a cross between the “Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes.”

“Her excuse for tweeting it was bad. You got to get better at one of those, Roseanne!” (RELATED: Michelle Wolf Attacks Sarah Sanders Again, Calls Her Personality ‘Ugly’)

“Everyone’s been saying it’s so brave of ABC to cancel their hit show, but the bold move was actually putting this lady Hitler chef back on the air in the first place,” said Wolf when a picture of Barr dressed as Hitler popped up. “So kudos to ABC, it takes a lot of courage to fire someone after they’ve been openly racist for the thousandth time.”

Wolf then spoke to the “double standard” conservatives bring up when it comes to getting in trouble or losing one’s platform or job because of a misstatement or a bad joke. (RELATED: Michelle Wolf Deleted Tweets Calling Eric Trump An ‘Abortion,’ Glorifying Antonin Scalia’s Death)

“You’re right. It is a double standard,” said Wolf. “So let’s even the playing field. How about we enslave all white people for a couple hundred years and then even after they’re not slaves anymore, still hold them down in society, devalue their existence by comparing them to animals, never apologize, never really make it right, and then after that there will be no more double standards and everyone will get fired for everything they say.”

“But until then, don’t compare Black people to apes,” Wolf concluded. “And don’t compare Trump to apes because that would be rude to apes!”
