By Conservative Tribune. Will Roseanne Barr’s character be killed off by an opioid overdose on the spin-off of her ABC show? That’s at least what Barr is telling one YouTube host. . .
At first, it looked like the show itself was finished, but instead of ABC killing off the effort entirely, he newly Roseanne-less program got christened “The Conners.” It’ll debut this October and will almost certainly be full of on-the-nose moments of boilerplate liberalism so obvious it’ll be like an after-school special for the pink knit-hat set . . .
“Oh ya, they killed her,” Roseanne told Brandon Straka on his YouTube show “Walk Away.” (Click here for the hour-long interview. The discussion about the television show starts about the half-hour mark.)
“They have her die of an opioid overdose.” . . .
I’m halfway surprised her character didn’t overdose in the street where her body was run over by a campaign bus ferrying Ted Cruz to a campaign event. And yes, I’m aware the show is set near Chicago and not anywhere near Texas. That’s just how bad I expect this soft reboot to be.

Roseanne Barr Says African-American Comics Called Her After Tweet: ‘They’re the Most Forgiving People in the World’
By Yahoo. On Tuesday, Roseanne Barr gave an exclusive interview to Dr. Oz, in yet another attempt to explain and apologize for her racist tweet.
In May, she compared former Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to an ape. However, she says that tweet was meant to critique the Iran nuclear deal — which Jarrett assisted with and which Barr claims threatens Israel and therefore is anti-Semitic.
“Anti-Semitism is what the tweet was about,” said Barr. “And the whole Iran deal is the most anti-Semitic thing that I personally have ever witnessed in my lifetime.” . . .
“The first people who called me were my African-American family members and comics,” she said. “They thought it was a joke and were defending free speech when they called me.” . . .
“My experience with African-Americans is they’re the most forgiving people in the world,” she said. “Their whole culture is very forgiving … they forgave … they continue to improve in this country after the history of this country.” (Read more from “Roseanne Barr Says African-American Comics Called Her After Tweet: ‘They’re the Most Forgiving People in the World'” HERE)
