"I had a feeling this was going to happen when I first heard it was coming back", Arnold told CNN's Anderson Cooper on "AC360".
Twitter users immediately pounced on Barr's claim that her sleeping pill led her to write the offensive tweet.
The revived show has since been cancelled after she tweeted the initials "vj" and the words: "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby" referring to President Obama's senior advisor Valerie Jarrett.
Trump wrote that Iger never called him to apologize for "the disgusting statements" that have been said about him on ABC. Trump tweeted that maybe he "just didn't get the call".
When the assistant returned after more than four hours, he was "really, really upset because she'd given him an apron, made him go outside in the heat and make burgers for him and some others". "He may say the tweet, but someone is typing it in". One person asked why the 65-year-old was making excuses, to which she replied: "No, i didnt i blamed myself. stop lying".
Barr replied, saying, "Sorry to have tweeted incorrect info about you!I Please forgive me!"
Barr also supported the story that the Hillary Clinton campaign was running a child sex ring out of the basement of a pizza parlor.
Barr said that she would leave Twitter as a result of the backlash she faced.
"Rosie is unbelievable", he says. But few if any shows with a national audience as large as "Roseanne" had have been so abruptly canceled.
"To all the Trump supporters outraged over the ABC/Roseanne double standard, I get it", Lahren tweeted.
Bob Iger, the CEO of ABC's parent company Disney, called Jarrett to apologize for Barr's tweet, but Trump said Iger never called him to apologize for all the "HORRIBLE statements" made about him by the network. "I'm so sick over this-they will never have better character actors on their network". "She knows he's an asshole". He told Cooper of a time that Trump criticized her directly after their divorce. "It is a weird thing".
But canceling "Roseanne" is "like taking off "All in the Family" or "I Love Lucy" or Andy Griffith at their zenith", he said. "She's always been this way and they didn't even have Ambien back then". "She is a fucking asshole, but so am I. No one ever stood up to her like I did".
