“The Roseanne Show” was canceled by ABC Tuesday after Roseanne Barr tweeted incendiary comments Tuesday morning about a former Obama staffer.
At the White House, reporters were able to address the president for the first time since the news. As Trump walked to Marine One, reporters shouted the name “Roseanne” at the president multiple times. One reporter asked about North Korea, but was shouted down by a chorus of other journalists yelling the name “Roseanne.”
Trump’s reaction was to shrug and waive. No audible response could be heard from the president.

“The Roseanne Show” had a pro-Trump bent and Roseanne has been a vocal advocate of the president online.
Trump congratulated Roseanne on her massive ratings earlier this year.
