Roseanne Barr takes another move from the Trump playbook

In a fitting epilogue to one of the year’s most grating non-scandal scandals, disgraced racist Roseanne Barr has called upon her Trumpian instincts to denounce the credibility of the mainstream media.

In a pair of tweets, Barr announced plans to tell her story in a TV interview, then canceled said plans hours later because she couldn’t possibly get a fair go in the media. Who knows? They might try to confront her with the things she’s said and done — very unfair.

“To my wonderful fans who I treasure and love-who have carried me these past weeks when I was 2 weak 2 carry myself: I will be doing a TV interview this week. I’ll tell u about it tomorrow!” she wrote.

By the next morning, she was singing a different tune:

“After a lot of thought, I decided that I won’t be doing any TV interviews, too stressful & untrustworthy 4 me & my fans. I’m going to film it myself & post it on my youtube channel in the next week-the entire explanation of what happened & why! I love you all-sign up & get ready.”

What could be more trustworthy than a self-produced, self-edited, cherrypicked “interview” meant to paint her in the best possible light?

2018 needs a lot of things — Roseanne propaganda isn’t one of them.
