Roseanne Calls Trump “A Friend To Jewish People – And To Christians, Too”


Roseanne Barr has been a longtime supporter of President Trump – something which the rest of Hollywood doesn’t like and has often criticized her for.

Most recently, the Jewish American comedian praised Trump for protecting religious freedom and, in her words, being “a friend to Jewish people – and to Christians, too.”

In an interview on The Rabbi Shmuley Podcast, Barr said that Trump is an “advocate for Jewish American citizens.”

In light of recent attacks on the Jewish community, Barr urged Jews to “fight force with force” and to use their Second Amendment right to buy a gun,

“It’s time to wake up and protect yourself. Protect your people, your community, your family. You’re under siege — it’s not BS.”

Take a look:


Breitbart has more to say on Roseanne's praise of Trump:

Actress and comedian Roseanne Barr said Tuesday that American Jews should arm themselves for self-defense, and that President Donald Trump was protecting the community — and others as well.

“He’s an advocate for Jewish American citizens … and he’s been a friend to Jewish people in this country and all around the world — and to Christians, too.”

Asked if she would fear the consequences if someone other than Trump were elected, she responded: “Yeah … and not just to Jews.” She said that Christians and Muslims, too, were at risk from attacks on houses of worship.

Barr made her comments in a rambling interview on The Rabbi Shmuley Podcast, hosted by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. (Rabbi Shmuley is also a frequent contributor to Breitbart News.)

Citing the example of Israel, Barr urged Jews to “fight force with force. That’s the only way you do it.” She noted that churches, too, have been targeted, and said that armed guards would eventually be necessary in all houses of worship.

“What starts with the Jews never ends with the Jews,” she added, noting that antisemitism was just one tool being used to divide Americans from one another.

She agreed that Jews should consider buying guns. “Yeah, absolutely, like they are in Israel. You have to defend your community.” She added: “And non-Jews, too.”

She referred, positively, to the writings of Malcolm X. “That’s one of the things I did like about what Malcolm said, when he was young, is that communities have to band together to protect each other … I mean, that’s just common sense. A community exists for the protection of the people who live within it.”

She advised Rabbi Shmuley to get a gun. “Of course! And get trained,” she added.

“It’s time to wake up and protect yourself. Protect your people, your community, your family. You’re under siege — it’s not BS.”

In stark contrast to Roseanne praising Trump for protecting Jewish Americans, Ilhan Omar recently re-tweeted (then deleted) a tweet by Democrat Rep. Eric Swalwell accusing Trump of stoking Anti-Semitism.


A bit hypocritical coming from banned-from-Israel Ilhan Omar, isn't it?

Fox News has more to say on this:

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn, reportedly retweeted then deleted a Twitter post that accused her of anti-Semitism after she was called out from both sides of the aisle for tweeting that the U.S. relationship with Israel is “all about the Benjamins, baby.”

The tweet she reportedly reposted was from Joshua Zeitz, a historian. The tweet in question began as though he was supportive of the freshman congresswoman's earlier comments. He wrote that he's "one of those American Jews who opposes the occupation, laments Israel’s anti-democratic drift, and doesn't regard the country as especially central to my Jewish identity."

The tweet continues, "And I know exactly what the congresswoman meant. She might as well call us hooked-nosed."

Mediaitepicked up a screen grab of the retweet, which was soon deleted. There was speculation that Omar may have retweeted the critical tweet after only reading the first few sentences.

Fox News reached out to Omar's office early Monday and did not get an immediate response.

Omar, who became the first Somali-American woman elected to Congress in November, responded earlier to a Twitter post by journalist Glenn Greenwald criticizing House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for threatening to take action against Omar and another freshman lawmaker, Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., over allegedly anti-Semitic remarks.
