A video is going viral online showing Roseanne Barr being interviewed by the controversial Infowars host Alex Jones. The liberal comedian Kathy Griffin has since responded to the video by slamming Barr for her rightwing views, saying that the video makes her “sad.”

Barr’s Video Rant

In the above video, Barr can be seen being served a glass of Jameson whisky while on the Infowars set with Jones.

“I wrote this book called ‘Roseannearchy’ and of course nobody [bought] it, even though I went on ‘Oprah’ and sucked [Oprah Winfrey’s] a**,” she said. 

Barr went on to say that she “wrote that book to help deprogram kids from the ‘Harry Potter’ bulls***,” adding that the 2011 book ended with a “chapter called ‘Wherein I Kill Satan,’ and I tell you how to do it.”

“But people with these German hats since telling us to take these shots and they’re using the Jewish people, basically over there in Israel as lab rats to do it on,” she continued. “And they’re lining up to do it. All they can do it just blow up stuff and cause earthquakes with their earthquake and heart attack machines. They’re just trying to kill everybody.”

Not stopping there, Barr said that 2005’s Hurricane Katrina “was the first time I think they [were] just trying it out, you know…Destroying a city and then going in after…”

At another point in the video, Barr discussed what she described as a pyramid that “money people” and “people who own the world” constructed, claiming that “they brought the Nazis over. They took over our government.”

Griffin Responds

Griffin, 62, responded to the video on her Twitter account, which is currently locked and set to private.

“This just makes me sad,” Griffin wrote, according to Newsweek. “Roseanne used to be such a role model. She gave Jennifer Coolidge* & I a break when she cast us in a summer replacement show she produced and starred in called ‘Saturday Night Special.’ I did not know she was this deep in to this stuff.”

“What a shame,” another Twitter user responded. “I don’t understand what people are getting from these behaviors. She’s already famous. Wealthy. She has resources the rest of us only dream about.”

“She’s a true believer,” Griffin replied.

Griffin’s Previous Attack On Barr

This isn’t the first time that Griffin has spoken out against Barr. After Barr was fired by ABC from the reboot of “Roseanne” for posting what many saw as a racially insensitive tweet about Barack Obama’s former advisor Valerie Jarrett, who is black, Griffin lashed out at her for her political views and described her as a “Nazi sympathizer.” 

“She’s a lost cause,” Griffin told Yahoo News at the time. “Meaning, maybe she’ll get a job on InfoWars with Alex Jones and, if she wants to, perpetuate her theories that Hillary Clinton had a child sex ring in the bottom of a pizza parlor. Because that’s what she thinks. That’s very different than [the classic sitcom] ‘All in the Family,’ the idea that the Roseanne show was showing the ‘real America.’ No, you are showcasing one nutjob.”

“I’m glad that [Barr] showed her true colors because I think it’s so essential for people to understand the delineation between an actress who’s playing a role that’s a very softened version of the Nazi sympathizer she has become,” she added. “And I’m sorry to say that, but it’s true.”

Check out Griffin’s full comments on this in the video below.

Whether you agree with Barr’s political views or not, it can’t be denied that she’s a far better comedian than Griffin could ever hope to be. In the end, nothing phases Barr, so we doubt she gives a hoot that Griffin has a problem with her politics.
