Trevor Noah blames Donald Trump for Roseanne’s racist tweet

The Roseanne reboot will not be returning for another season after ABC cancelled the show due to a racist tweet Roseanne Barr posted about former senior advisor to president Obama, Valerie Jarrett. Some fans are angry with the network, believing ABC was so quick to cancel the show because Roseanne is an unabashed Trump supporter. On The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Noah said he believes the blame falls squarely on Trump himself.

“That's right, Roseanne's show [was] canceled because she tweeted out racist stuff. You know who I blame for this? Donald Trump. That’s who,” Noah said. “Because he makes all of his supporters think they're as impervious as he is. Yeah, he’s just like, ‘Come on, everyone, you can tweet whatever you want! Nothing happens!’ Yeah, but it's not same for everyone else.”

Roseanne has since apologized for the tweet. Jarrett responded to the tweet and the subsequent cancellation, calling this a “teaching moment.”
