"Roseanne" returning to TV as Trump supporter


The original "Roseanne" aired on ABC from 1988 to 1997.

"I said it, and I'll say again, my show has always been ..." "I have always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of American working class people..."

The March revival of hit 1990s television comedy Roseanne will show how a politically divided, working-class American family grapples with daily life and challenges after the election of US President Donald Trump, the show's stars said on Monday. "There was a lot of thought in it".

The original series was far more interested in issues of class and gender inequity than it was in race-but Season 7's "White Men Can't Kiss" did focus on Roseanne growing furious with D.J. over his reluctance to kiss a black classmate in a school play, then uncomfortably confronting her own ingrained racism when she couldn't decide if she was afraid of a late-night visitor to her diner because he was a man, or because he was a black man.

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. "Nobody is brainwashed into agreeing with a hundred percent of what anybody says, let alone a politician or a candidate", she added. I'm not a Trump apologist. There's probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don't agree with it. "I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and, you know, try something different", she said. I do support jobs for people. "I think that's 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. But Barr continued with her response, which had to do with why she didn't vote for Hillary Clinton.

"So I felt that, yeah, that was very real, and something that needed to be discussed".

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.

- Roseanne Barr says making her character a Donald Trump supporter in the revived sitcom "Roseanne" is true to its roots.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barr told reporters during a press tour that should Winfrey run for president in 2020, as many Americans are calling for after her emotional and riveting Golden Globes acceptance speech, she would possibly consider an opposition run.

"I love Oprah, like everybody else", she said.

Though she initially tried to avoid talking about politics during the panel, an odd move considering the subject matter of the reboot, Barr eventually addressed the Trump of it all at the panel's increased prompting.
