    She got what she deserved. So long and good riddance!

    So awesome to see one of the Deplorable Trump supporters get their show cancelled. She is racist just like Donald Trump and that is why she supports him.

    ABC should have never given her a show in the first place, they knew what she was when they hired her and they didn’t care. ABC was too concerned with Trump and Trump’s “base”(Russian bots). It’s time for the media to take responsibility because they helped create this mess. They need to stop falling for Trump’s con.

    Trump is a con artist and he uses people like Robert C, Jonathan S, Maggie H, Philip R, Ashley Parker, Kristen W, Peter A, Haille J, and Kelly O to help spread that con. The media needs to stop giving these people platforms to help spread Trump’s lies. They aren’t even subtle about how they are getting this information directly from Trump and Guiliani.

    When the media sees that Trump’s approval rating has “improved”(especially during those times when Trump is having a very bad week) or that a high percentage think that Mueller’s investigation is a “witchhunt” (especially when previous polls show that everyone thinks that Trump is a liar), they need to call out the role that these bots are playing. The bots organized rallies, why does the media think that they are not messing around with polls that make Trump look good?

    Michelle Wolf called Sarah a liar and media journalists and media outlets went on the attack against her. Why is it so hard for the media to call Trump and Sarah’s lies, lies? It was sad watching Mika, Maggie, and Andrea lie and attack Michelle because they didn’t want to get on Sarah’s bad side. They never even apologized for lying about Michelle. Where is the accountability?

    Hollywood should be more outraged at all the rapists and sexual assaulters that are prevalent in their sick twisted business. Fuck all of them. Roseanne is funny and rich enough to not give a shit

    It’s possible to be dismayed and outraged by both

    Trump supporters are sticking up for her saying that Bill Mayer made a joke of Trump being an ape because he is ‘orange’. No common sense. Trump’s tanning is his choice. Being born a skin color is not !! Just dumb excuses for racism.
