She tweeted that the show is done for good. I'm kinda surprised that Amazon Prime still has Rosanne available for streaming.

Do you have a link to the cartoon and an article about it? I'm not sure if I'm looking at the right thing. Only thing I can find is a Palestinian cartoon depicting Rice pregnant with a monkey.

Surely there would be SOMETHING on the WORLD wide web about this...

When?

Examples?

In the age of Trump, the term "Conservative" has become synonymous with racism and hate speech.

What surprises me is that true conservatives sit back and let their ideology be hijacked by such hate, but they seem content to do so.
In the Trump era, conservative=white power

I am NOT making a judgement, simply addressing your question.

Griffin didn't get rehired by CNN. Her comeback is live comedy gigs at venues. Roseanne is likely to do such comedy gigs too, as she has done these throughout her career. Nothing stopping either of them from going from city to city to stand up live in front of an audience in a comedy club, as long as the comedy club is willing to hire them. This is up to the individual comedy club.

Mel Gibson was a darling of the Christian right with his Passion movie and was considered a conservative and he is now back starring in movies.

Griffin has been working this whole time just not in the states. Now she is touring again in the states. Obviously there is a segment of the population that likes her (myself I never did and still do not) and if they want to pay to see her that is the free market.

At the height of her career she had a basic cable show and a new years eve gig on a cable channel.

I don't see her ever getting a network sitcom or starring movie roles because she was never that big a star to begin with.
