Republican strategist Michael Caputo and national press secretary for Bernie Sanders 2016 Symone Sanders could not agree less over what ought to be next for Roseanne Barr.
On a panel with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the two got heated over whether the disgraced comedienne deserves a second chance.
“I got to believe that none of us like or appreciate what Roseanne Barr did, it’s a horrible mistake, and I think, you know, people view it, this whole thing about gorillas, it is a trope, it’s a racist trope, and I’ve seen people taken down by this in the past,” Caputo said. “If Roseanne is sorry and it sounds like she is sorry… if she makes amends with this with her community and family and friends I think she should get back to work.”
Roseanne hasn’t tried to make amends. Guess what? Today she blamed her racism on Ambien,” Sanders shot back.
