Trump to apologize for the frightful statements made and said about me on ABC". In the tweet, Barr wrote: "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj".

"If it hadn't happened yesterday, this season would have been so bad for everyone every day because she would have felt like she was [being] taken advantage [of], just like when I left the show".

The Oscar-winning documentarian shared a video on his Facebook and Twitter profiles showing him as a guest alongside Trump on The Roseanne Show, a short-lived talk show from the late 90s. ABC News is a division of the Disney Co. "I feel devastated, not for the end of the Roseanne show, but for all those who poured their hearts and souls into our jobs, and the audience that welcomed us into their homes", Fishman wrote in a statement posted to Twitter. She said of the Jarrett tweet, "It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting".
