"Roseanne" returning to TV as Trump supporter

  • Roseanne Barr's shocking comments about trans women unearthed

We got a preview of that during the press tour panel for the show, which began when a journalist asked about the parallel between the new "Roseanne", in which Roseanne Conner supports Donald Trump, and Barr herself, who has been vocal on Twitter about backing Trump and blasting Hillary Clinton, among others.

"And, in fact, it was working-class people who elected Trump, so I felt like that was very real and something that needed to be discussed and especially about polarization in the family and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American", she added.

She said her character, Roseanne, and her husband, Dan (John Goodman) will support Trump because she's always wanted the sitcom to be "a true reflection on the society we live in".

"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.

Showrunner Bruce Helford, however, said the decision for the family to be politically divided in the reboot was meant to bring the issue to the forefront.

Roseanne Barr's own political beliefs have been very well-documented, and at TCA today there was an at-times passionate discussion about politics.

Barr, in real life, is a staunch Trump backer, so some reporters naturally reporters wanted to know if she pushed for her character to follow suit.


"Half the country voted for him, half of them didn't". "I think it's fun to check back in with a family you knew ... and knew so much about".

Helford also cited perhaps wanting to start to heal things in this country, and star and executive producer Sara Gilbert echoed his sentiments. "Nobody is brainwashed into agreeing 100% of what anyone says". There's probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don't agree with it.

Barr took issue with a reporter asking about Trump's xenophobia ("That's your opinion"), but she did admit that Trump "says a lot of insane sh*t..." That included politicians-as demonstrated in Season 4's "Aliens", when Roseanne meets a state representative, Mike Summers, who is promoting a plan that gives tax breaks to corporations setting up shop in her hometown of Lanford, Illinois. I do support jobs for people.

When "Roseanne" returns to ABC in March, it returns with the revelation that the titular character voted for Donald Trump.

"I love Oprah, like everybody else", she said. "Actually, I think I would be a better president than Oprah or Susan Sarandon, possibly even President Trump".

"Speaking of racism, I'm just going to say it."

Roseanne Barr thinks she has a better shot at the presidency this time.
