Trump Voter Roseanne Barr Plays Herself in Sitcom Revival

Trump Voter Roseanne Barr Plays Herself in Sitcom Revival

The first episode of the revived "Roseanne" will air on March 27. This aligns with her real-life political views, which she's made clear on social media previously.

"I've always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and working-class people", Bar said Monday at the T.C.A. panel. "There was a lot of thought in it".

Barr, who sat on the famed Roseanne couch with original cast members including John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf, said she meant to revisit the groundbreaking comedy.

Roseanne better be careful, in this political climate, one serious controversy could get the reboot pulled from programming! At one point. Barr was asked why her character, who was known for her acceptance and humanity, would support a candidate who was racist. "But I didn't want it to overshadow the show, so I'm taking a little bit of a break". I'm not a Trump apologist. There are a lot of things that he's said and done that I don't agree with. But she supported Trump because "it was time for us as a country to shake things up and try something different". "I was anxious that people wouldn't want to touch [Roseanne], that everybody was proud of it and wanted to leave it alone and not risk anything", Gilbert said. "I think that a great way to fight racism is that everybody has a job".

"In 'The Rosanne Show, ' I've always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in". After all, as Darlene actress and Roseanne E.P. Sara Gilbert put it, "This is a time when our country is divided". But Barr continued with her response, which had to do with why she didn't vote for Hillary Clinton.

"A big part of why I couldn't vote for Hillary Clinton is because of Haiti", Barr said. No matter how you feel about that reality, one thing is for certain - the new Roseanne will make people talk.

"I do love Oprah", she said, per The Hollywood Reporter. "Of course I love Oprah like everybody else", Barr said when asked about the daytime TV mogul's now-famous speech. The entire cast joined her, but almost all of the questions were directed at Barr, who discussed her personal politics and why she'd make a better president than Oprah. And yes, she did use the word "hatriotism, according to Entertainment Weekly's report".

When Roseanne Barr revealed her sitcom character is a Trump supporter in the upcoming "Roseanne" reboot headed to ABC in March, fans of the canceled show "Last Man Standing" immediately called upon the network to bring back the Tim Allen-led sitcom.
