Roseanne Barr tweets viciously racist comment about Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett

Roseanne Barr, a supporter of President Trump, has faced heavy criticism over her "racism, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and hate speech" in recent years, although her comments took a particularly vile turn on Monday when she tweeted about former President Barack Obama's senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett:

Barr made her comment in a thread bashing "Obama's secrets," in which one user commented "Jarrett helped hide a lot."

Jarrett declined to provide a comment to The Wrap, but Qasim Rashid, a lawyer and human rights activist, tweeted: "White privilege is being an open racist [and] Islamophobe [and] still getting a prime time TV spot."
