Comedienne and Green Party presidential candidate Roseanne Barr is not known for her grace or her tact– she called for the rich to be beheaded last October on Russia Today, and said women should not come to S.E. Cupp’s defense after Hustler a fake explicit photo of her in their magazine– but today, she is leveling her barrels at an unexpected target, Nancy Pelosi.
A prolific tweeter, Barr alluded to Pelosi’s 2008 investment in Visa’s Initial Public Offering, saying: “Pelosi is a criminal too-insider trader with VISA-she needs to go-vote her out!!”
She continued to say, “Pelosi is a reptile -watch their eyes” and “reptile like criminals in control of our government.”
Presumably she meant “reptile-like criminals” in her last statement, implying that our politicians are reptilian crooks.
Rather than back down from her tweets, Barr seems to be standing by them. She re-tweeted several similarly controversial statements like, “That’s a real low blow. To lizards,” and “Our government isn’t as smart as reptiles but they do all [slither] on their bellies in sewage.”
However, this isn’t the first time Barr has called out Pelosi. After calling Sarah Palin a sociopath and saying there is ethnic cleansing in America (“by people who are running for vice president”), the comedienne said she would slap Nancy Pelosi in the face if she ever saw her.
