Jarrett appears on the morning show to react to Roseanne Barr's latest tirade.

If there's one thing former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett isn't losing sleep over, it's Roseanne Barr's continued rage-filled outbursts being hurled in her direction.

Barr came under fire for racist tweets comparing Jarret -- who is African American -- to a character from "Planet of the Apes," tweets which led to ABC axing her sitcom. In an unhinged YouTube video last week, Roseanne stood by her comments, shouting, "I thought the bitch was white!"

Responding to the video on Wednesday morning on "The View," Jarrett first pulled a Mariah Carey, saying "Roseanne, who?"

"In all seriousness, as I've said before, I'm fine," she continued. "If one of you said something like this about it, it would hurt my feelings. But this isn't what keeps me up at night, what keeps me up at night are those families being separated on the borders, or our children who go to school [who worry] about whether or not they're going to be safe."

"These are the things that keep me up at night, not a racist tweet," she added. "Racist tweets and profane videos, no."

"Poor Roseanne, she's really losing it," chimed in Joy Behar. "This girl's having a nervous breakdown."

As for Barr appearing on Fox News' "Hannity" on Thursday night, Jarrett was asked what she hopes she says on the program. "Less is more, don't you think?" she said. "There are so many issues that are more important."

One thing's for sure: "I won't be watching," she said, before telling everyone else in the room, "I hope you all won't be watching either."
