'I know hoes when I see them': Roseanne Barr goes off the rails and attacks #MeToo movement founder and accusers, claiming they are 'pretending that they didn't go to trade sexual favors for money'

Roseanne Barr has launched a verbal attack on the #MeToo movement. 
Barr, who was fired from ABC's Roseanne for a racist tweet in May 2018, sat down with far-right commentator, Candace Owens, for an interview published on Sunday. 
'They were there in the room because they thought they were going to get a job 15 years ago. Cuz they're hoes,' Barr told Owens as they discussed their views on the #MeToo movement. 
Barr said some of the women who were in men's hotel rooms at 3am are 'pretending that they didn't go to trade sexual favors for money'.
She continued mocking the victims of the movement by saying they stayed around in the hotel rooms because they thought they were going to get a job.
'Well you ain't nothing but a hoe. I know a hoe when I see one,' Barr added. 
The #MeToo movement was founded in 2006 by activist Tarana Burke, who started using the phrase to raise awareness of sexual abuse and assault.
It became a broader movement in 2017 when dozens of allegations ranging from rape to sexual harassment came out against Harvey Weinstein.
Barr didn't name drop Burke, but she did mention one notable #MeToo accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, who publicly accused US judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct.
Ford, 52, tearfully testified against him before he was confirmed as a member of America's Supreme Court. She accused him of groping her at a party when she was a teenager. 
Barr claimed during the interview that 'nothing happened' to Ford. 
'She should be in prison,' Barr said, adding that Ford used her 'white woman privilege' to rake in $1million from crowdfunding campaigns that supported her following her testimony.
At one point she laid into California Democrat, Kamala Harris, who's running for president.
'Look at Kamala Harris, who I call Kama Sutra Harris,' Barr says.
'We all know what she did… she slept her way to the bottom,' Barr continues, apparently referring to Harris' past relationship with former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown
More than a week ago, the comedian took aim at Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 'green new deal' and called her a 'bug-eyed b***h' in a rambling rant. 
In a video titled 'Bug eyed b***hes', the former sitcom actress unleashed a torrent of abuse at the Democratic firebrand. Barr also discussed a variety of issues including the environment, immigration and Israel.
During the video, Barr was seemingly unable to recall Ocasio-Cortez's name but had a lot of opinions to share about the 'Farrakhan loving b***h' who 'looks like a realtor' and her 'green new deal' in particular.  
Barr criticized the freshman congresswoman's plan to counter climate change and claims it would 'put hundreds of people out of work and decimate communities'.
'She got paid to do that — paid to decimate communities,' the former sitcom star blasted. 'Because they breathe carbon in their air or some horse s***.'
Barr declared that such an outcome was a natural result of 'socialism,' calling the economic system a 'fake f***ing con' and 'ponzi scheme'.
'Lefty dumb-asses,' Barr added, seemingly referencing Ocasio-Cortez's large following. 'Dumb as they get.' 
Ocasio-Cortez introduced the 'green new deal', a package of policies aimed at fighting climate change while promoting economic growth last month.
She has argued that the deal could curb climate change and boost the economy.
Barr's rant proceeded to offer her outlook on immigration, claiming Democrats were motivated to bring in foreigners because 'no Americans are going to vote for their ass anymore'. 
'Here's why they want them immigrants,' the actress continued. 'First of all because all of their buddies are hiring them for less than minimum wage. 
'That's a big draw. And second, cause no Americans are gonna vote for their ass anymore because we woke up to the s*** you're doing.' 
Barr criticized the Democratic party, saying that the decisions made by those representing it are 'decimating inner cities' while politicians live in 'vineyards and in a mansion'. 
Many of Barr's fans cheered her comments. They thanked her for speaking 'the truth' and asked her to 'preach on'.
She regularly offers her thoughts via her YouTube channel on President Donald Trump and other political issues.
Barr's blunt manner has caused her to land in trouble several times during her career, most notably when her reboot of her signature sitcom, Roseanne, was taken off the air by ABC after she posted a racist tweet.
In the post, Barr compared Valerie Jarrett, a black woman who was a former president Barack Obama administration official, to an ape.
The tweet read: 'Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes had a baby=vj.'
At one point, Barr claimed she didn't know the woman was black. At another point, she told followers not to defend her and said that what she did was 'unforgivable'.
