Member of the basket of deplorables Roseanne Barr blames Ambien for her racist attack on Valerie Jarrett, who she also claims she didn’t know is black when she called her an “ape” on Twitter. In other words, Barr is doubling down on her racism.
Barr hilariously tried to blame her racism on Ambien: “It was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too-i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible,” Barr said in a tweet, which is no longer available. “I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please.”
So, was she on Ambien when she tweeted her racist attack on another Obama aide — Susan Rice — as an ape? Was it the Ambien that made her disrespect the National Anthem during her horrendous rendition?
Barr is still trying to find justification for her racism. She retweeted a post showing Donald Trump being compared to apes:

Um, it’s a well-known fact that comparing blacks to monkeys, gorillas, apes, and so on is patently racist. Period. She’s trying to double down on her racism instead of staying off Twitter as she had promised.
Barr’s vileness has shone the spotlight right back on her idol, Donald Trump. Valerie Jarrett rightly stated he has set the tone for the racists in our midst to feel emboldened to rear their ugly heads. He blamed both sides for the hate-fueled violence in Charlottesville that led to the murder of a counter-protester by a Nazi sympathizer. Heather Heyer’s mother was so disgusted with Trump’s response that she refused take his phone call.
Twitter ripped Barr for using Ambien as a defense:
Ahhhhh…..Ambien…..that explains the existence of Fox and Friends. Perhaps a future home for Barr!

I have only taken Ambien once…but I don't remember one of the side-effects being racism.

I'm Pretty sure Trump is Googling "Ambien Side Effects" right now, hoping to see:
– Obstructing Justice
– Compulsive Lying

I call bullshit on Rosanne. Ambien DOES NOT cause racism.
On the other hand, Trumpism does cause hate, bigotry, & 100% dumbfuckery. 🤔😳

Roseanne on Ambien – Firing off racist insults on twitter while wearing a Nazi uniform.
Me on Ambien – Continuously calling my dog Gladys (her name is Beans), while googling things like, “do penguins have knees?” 🤷🏼♂️

Thank you, Roseanne. Now that I know Ambien causes overt racism, I'm going to stick with the subtle microaggressions of Nyquil.

Odd. Roseanne tweeting on Ambien sounds just like Roseanne tweeting without Ambien. 🤔 #RoseanneCancelled

Not only has Roseanne lost her day job and been kicked off of the air, but now she’s apparently trying to convince Sanofi-Aventis, the makers of Ambien to file a defamation suit against her. It’s almost as if she enjoys pain! @TomArnold, can you confirm?
— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) May 30, 2018
As someone who has taken #Ambien in the past, I don't recall waking up racist. In fact, when trying to communicate when Ambien kicks in, your thoughts will look like gibberish, not clear cut coherent racism. Own your behavior, @therealroseanne. You have no one to blame but you.
