Roseanne Barr told Sean Hannity she’s sorry her Valerie Jarrett tweet came across as racist. “But I’m not going to let them tell me what I meant.”
Roseanne Barr didn’t hold back on the #MeToo movement in a new off-the-rails interview, launching a verbal attack on Sen. Kamala Harris and other women in the process.
The 66-year-old comedian – who was axed from the hit “Roseanne” reboot in May following a racist tweet – sat down with conservative commentator Candace Owens, where she mocked sexual assault accusers and the #MeToo movement “witch hunt.”
“If you don’t run out the room … but you stayed around because you’re like, ‘I thought maybe he was going to give me a writing job,’ well, you ain’t nothing but a ho,” Barr said during an episode Sunday of “The Candace Owens Show,” after asking why women were in men’s hotel rooms late at night.

Barr and Owens compared the feminist movement to white supremacy, while Barr added that #MeToo accusers are “pretending that they didn’t go to trade sexual favors for money.”
“I know a ho when I see one,” Barr exclaimed. “They need to be called out …That’s privilege, too – ho privilege.”
The outspoken comedian then lashed out against Sen. Kamala Harris, nicknaming her “Kama Sutra Harris.”
“We all know what she did … she slept her way to the bottom,” Barr said, referring to the senator’s former relationship with ex-San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown.
Barr also took shots at Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who tearfully testified against now-Supreme Court Judge Brett Kavanaugh after accusing him of sexual misconduct.
“She should be in prison,” Barr said, adding that Ford used her “white woman privilege” to avoid time behind bars. She claimed that “nothing happened” to Ford.
“Women are encouraged to be conniving,” Barr said.
“Conniving little wimps,” Owens agreed.
