So Kat Myrman over at Like Mercury Colliding tagged me for this Three Day Quote Challenge thingie.
What you’re supposed to do is:
- Thank the person who nominated you. Thank you, Kat.
- Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
- Nominate three bloggers each day.
I suppose the first thing I need to do is select my quote for Day 1.
Okay, here goes. I’m calling this quote “Why I refuse to watch the ‘Roseanne’ revival.” It’s actually a quote of a Roseanne Barr tweet.
Here’s what she tweeted:
“President Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world. Hundreds each month. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere. notice that. I disagree on some things, but give him benefit of doubt-4 now.”
WTF, Roseanne? Tweeting your support for a right-wing conspiracy theory?
If you haven’t heard about this “theory,” it alleges that high-profile Democrats and other famous people are involved in child sex-trafficking rings, and that Trump is breaking them up and arresting those involved in their operation.
Normally I can separate the actors from characters that they portray, but based upon this tweet, and others by Roseanne Barr, she is, in real life, just as fucked up as the character she portrays in her sitcom. And the last thing I need, for my own health and well-being, is to watch another crazy person on TV who goes around promoting right-wing conspiracy theories. If I wanted that, I’d watch Sean Hannity.
Okay. So now to nominate three other bloggers. Hmm. Let’s see.
Jim Adams at A New Title for Me.
Leigha at Leigha Robbins.
Michael at Morpethroad.
Okay, I’m done for Day 1. You three take it from here.
