Roseanne Barr Calls ‘Bulls—’ on Presidential Candidate’s Wife

Apr 18, 2012  •  Post A Comment

Comedian Roseanne Barr — who has declared herself to be a candidate for president as part of the Green Party — has targeted Ann Romney, the wife of presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney, over her claims about being a hard-working stay-at-home mom, TheWrap.com reports.

In an article posted on The Daily Beast, Barr wrote: "Mrs. Mitt Romney claims to have worked her toned ass off, raising five Romney males all on her own, as privileged wives often do — but, no, Ann, I call bullshit on your Big Mama story, girlfriend. Your son may flash that ‘I adore my mother’ grin on cable TV all day as he backs up your claims that you did it all on your own with no help — except from a ‘lady’ who comes in one or two hours a week to help with housework."

Barr advised intrepid media types to search the Romney records for proof that the Romneys had considerable domestic help, off the books or on, to give Mrs. Romney plenty of help raising her five sons.

TheWrap reports that Barr “speculated that the Romneys may have had help when their children were growing up from an undocumented worker. She did not offer any evidence that that was the case, but called for tracking down a ‘cleaning lady’ for questioning.”

Barr adds in her post: “The media, which are completely clueless about every single issue that affects American women, must have had a shiver run down their nonexistent spine when they realized they could dig out the old ‘stay-at-home mom versus working mom’ script that worked so well to divide and conquer mothers and women along class lines to help defeat the Equal Rights Amendment back in my 20s.”

  1. Does anyone – ANYONE – care what Roseanne Barr has to say about anything? It must be tough to be a bitter, ugly, old woman.

  2. Well, she could only make it on T.V. if she yells and acts disgusting who else would have her she kinda came out in the 80′s when womens lib was at a peak, but soon failed when us real women could out work her, out smart her, or out Mother her. He own children don’t even like her. She is miserable within her soul ! Look at her own house they showed it while filming that Nut show or farm… he husband and son had to clean it up one day for a birthday party surprise she lives nasty. So who is she to talk about anyone else. We all have different status in life and the Romney’s have all rights to have a housekeeper or a sitter for the children. I have hired many people to clean my house and I have cleaned many. Watched children and have hired sitter. Rare, but I have a few times. At least mine didn’t run away from me Rosanne and not have anything to do with me becasue you are so miserable in you’re skin they couldn’t stand to be around you. She just wants to be heard either good or bad. She is the one who needs help.
