Actress, comedian, and reality TV star Roseanne Barr blasted Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton this week, warning that a Clinton victory would “be the absolute death of Israel”.

Barr, best known for her eponymously named sit-com Roseanne which ran from 1988 to 1997, was raised in a Jewish family in Salt Lake City Utah.

A former member of the Green Party, Barr ran for president in 2012 on another third party ticket, the Peace and Freedom Party.

Now a registered Republican, Barr appeared to endorse Trump in June, saying the US “would be so lucky” if Trump prevails in the November election, “because then it wouldn’t be Hillary”. Barr later clarified that her statements had not constituted an endorsement of any candidate.

On Wednesday Barr lambasted Mrs. Clinton, saying the former Secretary of State would “sell nukes to Hamas next if [the] price is right”.

“Hillary will be the absolute death of Israel – she will sell nukes to Hamas next if [the] price is right,” Barr tweeted.

“She listens [to] Sid, Paul, and Max Blumenthal!” a reference to long-time Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal and his sons, Max and Paul. Max Blumenthal, a self-described anti-Zionist and supporter of the BDS movement, has earned the praise of former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke for his 2013 book entitled Goliath: Life and Loathing in Greater Israel.

In Clinton emails released by the State Department it was revealed that the elder Blumenthal offered advice and was often consulted by Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State. Blumenthal also frequently forwarded articles by his son to the Secretary of State, along with other anti-Israel material.
