Trump Calls Roseanne Barr to Congratulate Her on Return of Show

Trump Calls Roseanne Barr to Congratulate Her on Return of Show

After generating massive ratings and viewership for its premiere episode, there's a buzz about a succeeding #season for the revival.

The original show featured a working-class family of five along with assorted relatives who were added to the mix.

Now to start that ticking clock for the moment that Roseanne Barr does something that makes Trump rescind his congratulatory tone.

Her onscreen sister, Jackie Harris, played by Lady Bird actress Laurie Metcalf, supported Hillary Clinton but ended up voting for Jill Stein. In real life, Barr is also a vocal Trump supporter, though she lives on a macadamia nut farm in Hawaii and not in IL. Both Barr and the titular character are vocal Trump supporters.

Barr also explained the reason for the show's new, politically-charged content, which she said gives viewers a different, more "accurate" look at what's happening in American families than they could find elsewhere.

The premiere episodes of the new "Roseanne" will be re-run Sunday April 1 on ABC. The show became one of the most successful sitcoms of all time.

Barr's character on the Roseanne reboot is also a Trump supporter.

Why the Yankees' new beer art violates Major League Baseball rules
Last season with Miami, the 28-year old slugger belted an MLB-best 59 home runs and racked up 132 RBIs en route to NL MVP honors. Finally, the Yankees are at approximately $167 million, which is the organization's lowest payroll in the last 15 years.

At a Television Critics Association panel in January, the Emmy victor explained why the ABC series would be politically charged. "Half the country voted for him, half of them didn't".

As Ben Shapiro writes, "Conservatives are celebrating because they believe that Roseanne is helping to cure the culture by depicting a Trump supporter as something other than a rube or an idiot".

Barr was a liberal in the past.

Barr recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, who asked her about the Trump stuff.

"I'm still the same-you all moved".

"The idea that people can agree to disagree is kinda missing from everything", she said. I mean seriously, a lot of your audience, and including me... a lot of us, no matter who we voted for, we don't want to see our president fail, you know?

The "Roseanne" revival airs Tuesday nights on ABC.
