Trump-Supporter Roseanne Barr Once Posed as Hitler Pulling Burnt People Cookies Out of an Oven

Published

on

18 million Americans watched the reboot of “Roseanne” this week, but how many would have if they had known the Trump-supporting 65-year old real life Roseanne Barr once dressed up as Hitler – complete with mustache – and pretended to pull burnt cookies in the shape of people out of an oven?

The images, originally shot for a magazine about Jewish culture in 2009 were made famous by a Fox News article drawing attention to the highly-controversial photos.

The analogy to Hitler – who burnt and gassed millions of Jews, and was ultimately responsible for the deaths of over 50 million civilians, prisoners of war, and soldiers – is unmistakeable.

Like her old show, those photos have resurfaced.

Among those drawing attention to them is noted journalist Kurt Eichenwald, a New York Times best-selling author, MSNBC contributor, and Vanity Fair contributing editor. He notes members of his family were burned to death by the Nazis.

Eichenwald goes on to say, “I learned from @foxnews. The photo is real.  @therealroseanne burned cookies looking like people in an oven while dressed as Adolph Hitler. I am actually crying. I think of the anguish of my family, of my in-laws. I think of this little boy, Antosh. One of Roseanne’s cookies.”

Indeed, in 2009, Fox News reported, “Comedian Roseanne Barr has seriously pushed the bar with a new photo spread that depicts her as a domesticated version of Adolf Hitler for Jewish humor magazine Heeb.”

“At her request, Heeb photographed Barr wearing the infamous Hitler moustache and a swastika, holding and preparing to take a bite of what the article refers to as ‘burnt Jew cookies.'”

Heeb magazine is no longer in print but is still online.

Earlier this week Barr came under fire for tweeting “NAZI SALUTE” to Parkland student survivor David Hogg, apparently in reponse to a doctored photo spread by the right that appeared to show him giving a Nazi salute. He did no – it was just one of many false and vile attacks against the Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school students.

On social media, as the news of Barr’s Hitler costume and cookies spreads, some are expressing outrage:

‘You Just Want to Talk About White Power’: Kellyanne Conway Attacks Reporters Over Trump’s Racist Tweet

Published

on

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway clashed with reporters on Wednesday over a racist video that was shared on Twitter by President Donald Trump.

While taking questions outside the White House, NBC’s Kristen Welker asked Conway about a video tweeted by Trump in which a man shouts “white power.”

Conway noted that the president had eventually deleted the tweet.

“Does he need to condemn white power?” Welker asked.

“He condemned it by taking it down,” Conway replied. “He never heard that. He doesn’t support that phrase. This is a president that has worked for all Americans. If you’re not going to cover the other side of the coin, respectfully, everything he’s done for African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, vulnerable populations.”

“You just want to talk about white power!” she complained. “He took the tweet down. Do you regret asking it three days later. I mean, honestly, you’re like a reporter for a major — I respect you, Kristen — you’re a reporter for a major network and you’re gnawing on the same bone three days later. Why?”

“It’s not a three-day-old story,” the reporter pressed. “Because there’s a reckoning on race in this country. That’s going on now. And the president still hasn’t come out and condemned it.”

“Condemned what?” Conway interrupted.

“White power,” the reporter said. “It’s a longer story.”

“No, it’s a longer story because you want it to be,” Conway remarked. “Because you think you decide how the president speaks and what words and punctuation he uses. And it doesn’t work that way. America sees what he’s doing for this country.”

“So, yes, we have to have an ongoing conversation,” she added. “I have that conversation with my own children. Of course we should have it as a nation. But if you’re just going to throw out the Sesame Street word of the day and expect us to have a conversation, that’s not how to have a conversation.”

Republicans Start Pretending They’ve Always Supported Masks – Now That COVID-19 Is Surging in Red States

Published

on

When blue states like Washington, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Massachusetts were hit with coronavirus in large numbers, Republicans from President Donald Trump to Fox News were vehemently opposed to mask wearing. But now that coronavirus is surging in red states, like Texas, Florida, Arizona, and Georgia, they’re changing their tune – and pretending they’ve always supported mask wearing.

“If Americans submit to wearing masks,” Fox News host Laura Ingraham asked one month ago, “what other rights and freedoms can be taken?”

Fast forward to this week.

Here’s Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell:

The President of the United States still refuses to wear a mask in public, and has made clear he remains vehemently against them, but his son, Donald Trump Jr., on Tuesday out of the blue declared mask-wearing is no big deal.

“You know, I don’t think it’s too complicated to wear a mask,” Jr. told Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo in an interview discussing the upcoming GOP convention.

Former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney Wednesday said that President Trump should tell Americans that wearing a mask “is the best thing you could possibly do,” and suggested he “start wearing them to send that message.”

“Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy seemed to mock RNC chair Rona McDaniel on Tuesday for her apparent continued opposition to mask-wearing – and her defense of the President’s refusal as well.

“I think that if the president wore one, it would just set a good example. He’d be a good role model. I don’t see any downside to the president wearing a mask in public,” Doocy said. “MAGA should now stand for ‘Masks Are Great Again.’ Let me give you some marketing advice right there.”

Here’s uber-conservative Republican Senator Lamar Alexander of Tennessee:

Unofficial Trump advisor, Fox News host Sean Hannity, acts like he’s always supported mask-wearing – even though he called the coronavirus crisis a hoax. In fact, as Yahoo News reported in April, Hannity suggested “the pandemic might be a ‘deep state‘ plot to hurt the economy or, at another point, claiming concerns over the novel virus was a ‘new hoax‘ designed to ‘bludgeon’ Trump.”

Now, coronavirus is real and “masks work.”

This week we’ve seen Vice President Mike Pence wear a mask. In fact, the White House posted this image of the VP at a rare coronavirus task force meeting Tuesday:

Not all Republicans are on board.

Like President Donald Trump.

And Senator Rand Paul.

More Proof: Intel Analysts Intercepted Electronic Data Showing Financial Transfers From Russian Military to Taliban

Published

on

President Donald Trump is calling it a hoax but day after day more data points of proof appear, showing that Russia, as many news outlets have reported, paid the Taliban to kill U.S. soldiers.

The latest evidence, according to The New York Times, comes from intelligence analysts who say, “American officials intercepted electronic data showing large financial transfers from a bank account controlled by Russia’s military intelligence agency to a Taliban-linked account.”

That data “was among the evidence that supported their conclusion that Russia covertly offered bounties for killing U.S. and coalition troops in Afghanistan, according to three officials familiar with the intelligence.”

Early Sunday morning Trump claimed Russia paying the Taliban to kill U.S. troops was just a “hoax.”

The next day Trump suggested Russia paying terrorists to kill American soldiers was perhaps “another fabricated Russia Hoax,” despite all evidence to the contrary.

President Trump and his administration, despite numerous reporting to the contrary, claim he was never briefed. His former National Security Advisor, John Bolton, has said he briefed Trump on the Russian program in March of 2019.
