    Brush coat another layer over the bad paint. Make sure you have stirred your paint thoroughly to eradicate air "bubbles" from the paint prior to using the paint. Use light brush strokes.

    I would sand smooth, and start over, use a smooth foam roller and don't press down on it which causes bubbles, and then always drag off with a good brush to remove any texture.

    Sand lightly between coats using 220 grit sandpaper, making sure you remove all the dust before you recoat. Some paints will smooth out as they dry and others not so much.

    Shaking a paint can, or stirring it too vigorously introduces air into the paint that can cause foaming, as can using old or low-quality paint. Applying paint too rapidly or using the wrong roller also creates tiny bubbles on the wall. Finally, painting over a porous surface can also allow bubbles to form. I would sand it down a bit and give it another coat of properly applied paint.
