Sarah Sanders Offering Roseanne Barr A White House Job After ABC Cancellation Is A False Meme

Sarah Sanders offering Roseanne Barr a White House job after ABC’s cancellation of her show is a false meme. There is no truth to a meme being circulated on social media that the White House Press Secretary said that President Donald Trump was more than willing to give Barr a position at the White House.

Where did this false meme originate? The Facebook account, @USAPressSecretary, posted the meme suggesting that the real Sanders was remarking that Barr would have a job courtesy of Trump. However, Snopes reported that the meme (seen below) is false and that the account has been deactivated.

Additionally, the @USAPressSecretary page’s “About” section states:

My official page was hacked on April 30th, so I’ve created this personal page for the time being, but we found no evidence that Sarah Huckabee Sanders was using a different Facebook account prior to that time which was suddenly “hacked.”

Sanders recently said Trump did not intend to defend Barr’s racist comments in a tweet. Sanders said “no one is defending” Barr’s racist tweet directed at Jarrett. Instead, the president’s remarks on the issue were simply intended to show “the hypocrisy in the media.” The White House press secretary also cited specific instances in which individuals associated with ABC made negative comments about Trump.

Here are some examples of people on social media sharing the false info about Sanders offering Barr a job.

ABC pulled the plug on “Roseanne” after Barr described former President Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett. Barr attacked Jarrett, a senior adviser to Obama, in a since-deleted tweet in which she said “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj.” Barr subsequently apologized: “I apologize to Valerie Jarrett and to all Americans. I am truly sorry for making a bad joke about her politics and her looks. I should have known better. Forgive me — my joke was in bad taste.”

ABC cancelled the revival for another season as ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey said, “Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show.” Dungey was appointed to her current role in February 2016, becoming the first black entertainment president of a major broadcast television network.

ABC’s decision was no easy decision as the rebooted comedy debuted its nine-episode run midseason and finished as the TV season’s No. 1 scripted series on all of broadcast. Roseanne had been averaging a 5.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 19.3 million viewers with live-plus-3 lifts.

Currently, EW reported that there is a possibility that ABC would move forward with a series starring some of the characters from “Roseanne.” The problem with that is “Roseanne” was created by Barr. If the sitcom were to continue without the matriarch, the actress would still benefit financially.

What did you think of the false meme that Sanders offered Barr a job at the White House? Did you believe the false meme or see people sharing it falsely on social media? Let us know in the comments section.
