Roseanne backtracks

Recall that Barr tweeted the following in May: "muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj", referring to a former Obama official, Valerie Jarrett.

At the time, she apologized for the racist connotation of her tweet, but when she appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox show, she backtracked and said it was not racist. She claims she'd simply sent out a political tweet.
