In an interview conducted by conservative commentator Candace Owens for her new talk show through PragerU, comedian and actress Roseanne Barr tackled some of today’s hottest topics in her signature blunt and no-holds-barred style.
Barr targeted the founders of the #MeToo movement — as well as Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and California psychologist and Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford, among others.
Barr questioned some of the women who originated the #MeToo movement and have lobbed accusations at prominent men.
“They’re pretending that they didn’t go to trade sexual favors for money,” the comedian said, asking hypothetically why some women would find themselves in a man’s hotel room at three in the morning.
Owens then brought up comedian Louis C.K. — whom numerous women have accused of sexual misconduct.
Barr was calling out C.K. on Twitter long before accusations against him gained the attention of the mainstream media.
“That’s who I’m talking about, too,” Barr said when the disgraced comedian’s name was mentioned.
She then used a vulgar term usually reserved for prostitutes, saying she “knows” one when she “sees” one. “The[se women] need to be called out,” she said.
Barr also went after Harris, who recently announced her intention to run for the presidency in 2020.
“We all know what she did … She slept her way to the bottom,” claimed Barr. She made reference to the California senator’s prior relationship with Willie Brown, the former mayor of San Francisco, who has admitted to an extramarital affair years ago with Harris, as Fox News, The New York Post and other outlets also reported. (This Los Angeles Times piece shows a picture of Brown and Harris together at a dinner in 1995.)
The comedian went on to say that Christine Blasey Ford — who last year accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault when they were both high school teenagers, something he vehemently and consistently denied — belongs in prison.
“White women privilege” is the only thing keeping Ford out of prison, said Barr.
Barr also criticized some outspoken Hollywood liberals.
“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 … you know what people at the networks told me? ‘Those girls are too ugly to go on TV,'” said Barr.
She continued, “And I said, ‘This is so incredibly sexist. Look at me — I’m no beauty. You can’t take talent, for a woman, and reduce it to their facial flaws. Are you s****ing me?’”
Barr then joked that she’s changed her tune because she now sees that many of the people she fought for are ugly on the inside.
“Nowadays, I’m like, you’re right. They are too ugly to be on TV,” she said — adding that each of them has an “ugliness inside.”
