Donald Trump Jr. Retweeted Part of Roseanne's Twitter Rant That Got Her Fired

Roseanne Barr saw her hit sitcom canceled by ABC Tuesday just hours after the Roseanne star unleashed a series of tweets, which included claiming that a former adviser to President Barack Obama was the result of a relationship between the "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes." But before her show was canceled, part of Barr's Twitter tirade was retweeted by President Donald Trump's eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.

Trump Jr. retweeted two of Barr's tweets following her false assertion that Chelsea Clinton was married to a nephew of George Soros.

"Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!I Please forgive me! By the way, George Soros is a nazi who turned in his fellow Jews 2 be murdered in German concentration camps & stole their wealth-were you aware of that? But, we all make mistakes, right Chelsea?" Barr tweeted after her initial claim had been called out by Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr. also retweeted a claim from Barr that Soros, a Democratic Party donor, was a "racist."

"Soros' goal; the overthrow of us constitutional republic by buying/backing candidates 4 local district attorney races who will ignore US law & favor 'feelings' instead-and call everyone who is alarmed by that 'racist,'" she wrote.

The return of Roseanne earlier this year attracted much attention, in part because the central character, played by Barr, was to be a supporter of the president. Following the impressive debut of the show in March, which averaged 18.2 million viewers, Trump made a personal phone call to Barr to thank her for her support, according to The New York Times.

"Even look at Roseanne, I called her yesterday. Look at her ratings! Look at her ratings! I got a call from Mark Burnett, he did The Apprentice. He's a great guy. He said, 'Donald, I called just to say hello and to tell you did you see Roseanne's ratings?'" Trump said during a speech in Ohio. "I said, how big where they? They were unbelievable. Over 18 million people. And it was about us."

The praise was mutual.

"I just wanted to have that dialogue about families torn apart by the election and their political differences of opinion and how we handle it," Barr told The Times. "I thought that this was an important thing to say at this time."

Barr added on the president's positions, many of which are shared by her character: "I think he voices them quite well."
