At another point, just before addressing Jarrett, Barr said, "I already have said I'm sorry for two months".

Roseanne Barr sat for her first TV interview since she was sacked and had her ABC sitcom "Roseanne" canceled over a racist tweet. I never meant that, and for that I apologize.

Roseanne Barr talks with Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity while being interviewed during a taping of his show, Thursday, July 26, 2018, in NY.

Later in the interview, Hannity asked Barr to address Jarrett directly. It was hyped as the superstar comic's first TV interview after ABC dropped one of the highest-rated shows of the last TV season within hours of her posting back in May.

"I feel like I have apologised and explained and asked for forgiveness and made recompense", she said. Which I think 30 years of my work can attest to.

Nawaz Sharif's party says army's 'pre-poll rigging' benefits Imran Khan
Before official results arrived, PTI and Khan supporters took to the streets to celebrate the initial results on Wednesday night. At another polling station, Samra Aslam, 53, said she was voting for Sharif because he had brought development to the country.

"Valerie, let's discuss this", Barr said later, looking at the camera. "I never meant that and I apologise for saying anything negative about an entire race of people".

The hour-long interview also dealt with Barr's mental health; she talked about being hospitalized multiple times and previously suffering from multiple personality disorder. "Her skin tone is like mine, and I'm brown - I didn't know she was African-American".

She added that her contract with ABC protected her from any mistakes she were to possibly make.

"I'm so sad that anyone thinks that of me", she said, "but I'm not that person".

Hannity repeatedly urged Barr to apologize to Jarrett on air.

Trump secures concessions to avoid US-EU trade war
Recently, Trump has threatened a 25% tariff on European autos , a warning that seems to have been staved off. Trump is tweeting that trade partners need to either negotiate a "fair deal, or it gets hit with Tariffs".

This is a developing story. She also suggested that Jarret's skin tone is "like mine" and said she herself is "brown" before explaining that she lives "on an island full of brown people." WTF? And I'm sorry for the misunderstanding that caused my ill-worded tweet, and I'm sorry that you feel harmed and hurt.

"You sent this tweet out, 'Muslim brotherhood and Planet of the Apes, ' you're talking about Valerie Jarrett".

In another moment, she made fun of Jarrett's haircut after delivering a rambling non-apology that mostly seemed to blame Jarrett for being offended by the tweet in the first place. "That's what made people like the Roseanne show - because they saw themselves in [me], or have an aunt, or their mom or their sister, somebody in their family was, you know, a loud, outspoken woman who loved her family". "I mean seriously. She needs a good haircut".

ABC has since announced the show will return in October as a spinoff called "The Conners" with all the main characters except Barr, who will have no financial or creative involvement.
