Trump Voter Roseanne Barr Plays Herself in Sitcom Revival

Sara Gilbert, who returns as one of Barr's daughters on the show when it premieres in March, said the new episodes depict a family "divided by politics but still filled with love". "Of course I love Oprah like everybody else", Barr said when asked about the daytime TV mogul's now-famous speech.

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. "I would really like to see an end to hatriotism in this country".

"The Roseanne show, I've always wanted it to be a true reflection of the society we live in", she said finally. "I feel like half the people voted for Trump and half didn't, so it's just realistic", she said, while explaining why her character on the show is a Trump supporter.

An awkward reunion with "Roseanne": The revival of the once groundbreaking sitcom "Roseanne" will, according to its star, Roseanne Barr, confront the fact that people in America are divided when it comes to politics.

The main character's political views will mirror those of Barr herself, who so frequently offers blunt, pro-Trump opinions on Twitter that many users have called for a boycott of the reboot with the hashtag #BoycottRoseanne.




"We had a lot of discussion in the very beginning about all of our beliefs, about all the things we feel", executive producer Bruce Helford said during a panel at the Television Critics Association's 2018 winter tour. And especially about polarization in the family, and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American. "And I did run in 2012".

Although the entire cast of the sitcom was present Monday, most of the questions were directed at Barr and what she and her sitcom character think of Trump. She then added, "I'm not a Trump apologist, and there are a lot of things he's said and done that I don't agree with, like there's probably a lot of things that Hillary Clinton done and said that you don't agree with". "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. "No one's brainwashed into agreeing with 100 percent of what anybody says, let alone a politician or a candidate". 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. "I think that a great way to fight racism is that everybody has a job".

Gilbert tried to get her TV mom to walk away from the controversy bait by asking if Roseanne was "sure" she wanted to go there.

Reportedly, an ABC publicist did try to stop the panel, but Roseanne Barr just pressed ahead with her comments.
