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:
