Roseanne Barr Calls Nancy Pelosi 'A Criminal': 'She Needs To Go'

Comedienne and Green Party presidential candidate Roseanne Barr on Sunday went after former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

In a string of comments posted on Twitter, Barr called the House Minority Leader "a criminal" that "needs to go":

As for Barr, this isn't the first time she's gone after the former Speaker.

In 2008, she said she'd slap Pelosi in the face if she ever met her (at minute 4:25):
