There's probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don't agree with it. "I feel like half the people voted for Trump and half didn't, so it's just realistic", she said, adding that she has tried to craft the show as a realistic portrayal of the working class. "So I felt, yeah, that was very real, and it was something that needed to be discussed especially with polarization in the family and hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American".

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.

During a Television Critics Association panel discussion about the upcoming season of the show, Barr faced multiple questions from reporters about her, and her character's, support for Trump. I do support jobs for people.

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

Also according to Sara Gilbert, addressing the political divide in our country was baked into the DNA of the reboot from the beginning.

WHOA. Per reports, an ABC publicist scrambled to end the press conference. I think it's a time to close ranks.

When Roseanne returns to ABC on March 27 after nearly two decades off the air, it will include at least one update: Roseanne Conner will be a Trump supporter. No matter how you feel about that reality, one thing is for certain - the new Roseanne will make people talk.
