Not helping.

In a bizarre interview posted on her own Youtube channel, Roseanne Barr appears disoriented and disheveled, smoking and bellowing at the interviewer.

Barr becomes increasingly frustrated before finally shouting, "I thought the bitch was white!" in reference to Valerie Jarrett, one of President Barack Obama's top advisors.


The subject of Valerie Jarrett has plagued Barr since her racist, since-deleted tweet in which she referred to Jarrett, who is African-American, as the baby of the "Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes." The tweet culminated in the cancellation of the reboot of her sitcom, Roseanne. She blamed the statements on Ambien. A new reboot, The Conners, has been greenlit by ABC and expected to star the original cast with the exception of Barr's character.

Barr presumably orchestrated the unsettling interview and uploaded it to her own Youtube channel after a recent decision to end media interviews, which she claimed perpetuated an unfair perception of her. She announced the decision on Twitter earlier this month.

The new video doesn't seem to be any more helpful than her previous appearances, according to social media.

This is far from Barr's first attempt to defend her Valerie Jarrett tweet.

In addition to blaming the tweet on Ambien, Barr backtracked by saying that her reference to "Planet of the Apes" was alluding to the antisemitism of the Iran Deal, rather than the centuries-long, racist tradition of equating black people with primates.

However, Barr perpetuated antisemitic conspiracy theories on Twitter as well. While harassing Chelsea Clinton on the social media outlet, Barr accused George Soros, a Hungarian-born philanthropist, financier, and political activist, of being a Nazi. Despite barely being a teenager during World War II, Soros and his family were actually Jewish and were able to survive Nazi occupation by pretending to be Christians. In addition to this, Soros' father, Tividar, helped save many Hungarian Jews.

Barr found herself backtracking on this statement as well:

I apologize sincerely to @georgesoros. His family was persecuted by The Nazis & survived The Holocaust only because of the strength & resourcefulness of his father. Learn more of the truth about this at https://t.co/8gJ3xZpzNC

While Barr's racism and dedication to Trump should not go unquestioned or excused, the video also has many concerned for the comedian's mental health.

Barr has continuously tweeted and retweeted in support of Donald Trump throughout the scandals. Donald Trump himself lauded her shortly after the premiere of the Roseanne reboot.

She has yet to elaborate on this most recent video, but the conversation may have already gotten away from her.
