Trump Voter Roseanne Barr Plays Herself in Sitcom Revival

Barr defended her support for Trump by saying, "I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and try something different".

"In The Roseanne Show, I've always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in". When asked about politics taking center stage in the premiere episode, the cast and creators said that they wanted to put forth an authentic representation of what many families in the country have been experiencing during and since the election.

Barr herself has spoken in support of Trump, but the show's producers said the series does not advocate a political stance.

When the reporter pointed to Trump's early campaign comments regarding Mexicans, Barr elaborated further: "Well, he says a lot of insane shit".

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. "I think that a great way to fight racism is that everybody has a job".

But McDonald's question - which I'll remind you was about the character of Roseanne and not the celebrity Roseanne (though you can see where Barr would get confused) - seemed to get under Barr's skin, just a little bit. But as Goodman stated, her drama doesn't win the awards like her comedy has in the past. There's probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don't agree with it. "No one's brainwashed into agreeing with 100 per cent of what anybody says, let alone a politician or a candidate".

But Barr continued with her response, which had to do with why she didn't vote for Hillary Clinton.

Barr went on to say that although she "loves" Oprah - whose rousing Golden Globes speech Sunday night resurfaced speculation about a 2020 presidential run -she thinks she'd be a better president.

Roseanne was part of a press tour panel that was previewing the show set to air this spring on ABC. Of course, I love Oprah like everybody else.

"What we wanted to do was find a way for this family, which represents a cross-section of values and beliefs, and get a debate going in an honest and real way - whether that's pro- or anti-Trump or Jill Stein, it was really about getting dialogue going in an honest way", Helford said, according to the Hollywood Reporter. I think it's a time to close ranks.

She also claimed that she would be a better president than both Oprah Winfrey and Susan Sarandon, and maybe even better than Trump himself.

But Barr leapt back in: "Speaking of racism, I'm just going to say it".
