The jokes were flying Wednesday after Roseanne Barr tweeted that she was on Ambien when she tweeted a racist message about former President Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, which ultimately cost Barr a sitcom.

"You're not going to believe this", the host added, sarcastically, "but she tweeted something outrageous".
