Here's What Donald Trump & Roseanne Barr Spoke About During Their Phone Call

Roseanne

The first episode of the reboot, aired on ABC Tuesday evening, averaged around 18.2 million viewers and a 5.1 rating in its key demographic.

Barr is a Trump supporter in real life, as is her character on the show.

Barr ran for president with the Green Party and the Peace and Freedom Party in 2012, and voted for Barack Obama before becoming a vocal Trump supporter, saying she wanted him to "shake up" the status quo.

One Twitter user complained that "Trump doesn't have the time to call a family of dead USA servicemen killed in action", but yet he can find time to call Roseanne Barr on her ratings.

Barr said Trump congratulated her and talked about television and ratings.

Then Barr discussed why she thought Roseanne the series was striking a chord with viewers.

The show performed best in states that Trump easily won in 2016, while Americans in the left-leaning coastal states hardly tuned in at all.

The "Roseanne" revival airs Tuesday nights on ABC. Conner's sister Jackie Harris, however, supported Hillary. It's not hard to see why Trump is incredibly high on Roseanne Barr right now.

Trump was enthralled by the "huge" ratings "Roseanne" received, an unnamed source told the newspaper.

And President Donald Trump reportedly couldn't wait to congratulate the show's star Roseanne Barr on its runaway success.

"I think he voices them quite well", she argued.

Barr said she and the rest of the cast were hoping the ratings would justify a renewal of the reboot, meaning you should expect the Roseanne revival to continue. "We've been in wars for a long, long time, which everybody seems to forget - but working class people don't forget it because their kids are in it", she said. "We talked about a lot of things, he is just happy for me".

And Barr expressed her disdain for the former Democratic presidential nominee again earlier this week, flipping off Jimmy Kimmel when he noted she once called Clinton a "murderer".
