Meghan McCain on Friday dismissed Roseanne Barr as “every gross stereotype” of a Republican or supporter of President TrumpDonald John TrumpAdvisor: Sanders could beat Trump in Texas Bloomberg rips Sanders over Castro comments What coronavirus teaches us for preventing the next big bio threat MORE.

“I’m a Republican on ‘The View,’ and every day I come on here and tell people that Trump supporters and Republicans are nuanced, and it's not just one blanket thing,” McCain said.

McCain said she had been very excited about the ABC reboot of Barr’s now-canceled television show, which premiered to record-breaking ratings earlier this year. 


“I thought it was a reflection on the middle of the country,” McCain said. “The problem I have right now is that Roseanne is very gross stereotype I’m trying to get people to go away from.”

Barr, an outspoken Trump supporter who also played one on her namesake TV show, was fired by ABC after a racist tweet targeting former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Barr defended herself in a Thursday evening interview with Sean Hannity, saying her tweet, in which she called Jarrett a cross between the Muslim Brotherhood and "Planet of the Apes," was political, not racist.

"Valerie, let’s discuss this," Barr said on Fox News. "Don’t assume you know what I meant, because I think you don’t know what I meant, and I would like to make it clearer to you what I did mean."

“I don’t want her to be associated with the Republican Party in anyway,” McCain said the next day.

"The View" co-hosts sat down on Friday with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, a friend of Barr, who said Barr has still not been forgiven for the tweet. 

Barr apologized publicly to Jarrett and donated money to groups that support African-American youth but she still faces negativity, Boteach said.

“So is forgiveness dead in America?” he asked.

“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin brought up a recent video of Barr discussing the tweet.

"I thought the bitch was white!" the comedian screams in the video released earlier this month on her YouTube channel.

"Goddammit!" Barr continues while smoking a cigarette. "I thought the bitch was white! F---!"

“I don’t know how to reconcile with what you saying and what she has said with what the facts are,” Hostin said.

Barr later claimed that the video was supposed to be a comedic outtake.
