In interview, Roseanne Barr calls #MeToo founders ‘hos'

In a new off-the-rails interview, Roseanne Barr calls originators of the #MeToo movement "hos" and attacks Sen. Kamala Harris and Christine Blasey Ford.

She goes on a nasty tirade against Harris, the California Dem who's running for president. "Like if you don't run out of the room and go, 'Excuse me you don't do that to me, ' and leave, but you stayed around because you're like, [puts on crying voice] 'Well I thought maybe he was going to give me a writing job, ' well, you aren't nothing but a ho".

"Well, it's because they're hoes", the disgraced former ABC star said. "It was Memorial Day, I had a couple of beers and I took an Ambien", she told Candace.

Barr, 66, can't understand why the women hadn't just left the room the moment the meeting turned uncomfortable, and because of that, she is convinced they must carry some of the blame for their alleged abuse. "I know a ho when I see one".

"They're pretending that they didn't go to trade sexual favors for money", Roseanne said about some of the women who have been speaking out about their experiences with sexual assault through the #MeToo movement.

"I support Blexit cause I know that that really is the linchpin of the whole thing".

China is the United States' second largest agricultural market, according to data from the Office of the US Trade Representative. In a statement that was released today, China said that it welcomed the delay.

Barr and Owens also cast aspersions on Christine Blasey Ford, who testified against Brett Kavanaugh past year, with Barr saying she "should be in prison" and that "white woman privilege" was the only thing that kept her out.

"When I went to bat for Sandra [Bernhard], Kathy [Griffin] and Sara [Gilbert] to get them on TV - because I gave them all their TV jobs..."

"And I said this is so incredibly sexist". You know what people at the networks told me? Look at me, I'm no beauty. "Are you sh-ing me?"

The 66-year-old actress - who was sacked from "Roseanne" last July after posting a racist tweet - claimed having two sons and five grandsons had given her a different perspective on the situation and claimed the men in her family had been victims of "ho privilege".

"Nowadays, I'm like, you're right".

But now, Barr believes those comedians are "too ugly to be on TV", adding they have "ugliness inside". "They are too ugly to be on TV", Barr concludes, saying her colleagues have "ugliness inside".
