Valerie Jarrett on Roseanne Barr's racist tweet: 'I think we have to turn it into a teaching moment.'Just hours after
Roseanne's cancellation, Valerie Jarrett is weighing in. After Roseanne Barr posted a racist tweet about Jarrett, a former aide of President Barack Obama, ABC moved quickly to cancel her show, noting that the tweet was "abhorrent, repugnant, and inconsistent with our values" in its official statement.  Now, in an MSNBC town hall titled "Everyday Racism in America," Jarrett's responded, calling the experience "a teaching moment."

Roseanne, noting that Robert Iger, CEO of the Walt Disney Company, personally called her to let her know they'd be ending the show.  From NBC News: Barr's racist comment drew immediate backlash from across the internet and prompted Wanda Sykes, one of
Roseanne's high profile consulting producers, to make an immediate exit. Within a few hours, ABC Entertainment president Channing Dungey announced the show was over.  Considering Barr's history with tweeting right-wing propaganda and misinformation, we're surprised it took this long.

Babchenko made a scarcely credible reappearance at a press conference in Kiev on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the Ukrainian authorities reported he had been shot dead at his home in a contract-style killing.
