'Roseanne' Revival: Would the Main Character Have Voted for Donald Trump?

'Roseanne' Revival: Would the Main Character Have Voted for Donald Trump?

Indeed, Barr's earlier answer about why the show was now straightforwardly about a Trump voter made more sense than anything she said later: "Half the people voted for Trump, and half didn't".

If you're thinking, hey, wait a minute, those don't sound like new shows, congratulations for paying attention.

The Conners will be a family politically divided in the reboot, then-but it's fair to wonder whether Trump really aligns with Roseanne-the-character's own ideologies.

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.

The actresses attended Sunday's awards ceremony wearing black in honour of the Time's Up initiative, which was problematic for viewers considering she's been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Still, "I would be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, and possibly President Trump".

"There's no show that's dealing in the same way with these kinds of issues", Helford said. "I felt that was very real and something that needed to be discussed and especially about polarization in the family and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American", Barr said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"In The Rosanne Show, I've always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in".

Has Ewan McGregor Started Prepping For The Obi-Wan Kenobi Spinoff?
The actor has been very complimentary about the new Star Wars franchise, even the hotly debated film, The Last Jedi . Other reports have gone as far as to claim a movie has already been greenlight, and will have a 2019 release date.

John Goodman, who played her husband on the show, is returning for the revival along with most of the original cast.

Moments like these make it hard to believe that Roseanne Conner would be taken in by someone like Trump-"working class" background or not.

Barr ran as the nominee of the California-based Peace and Freedom Party in 2012 and managed to take sixth place, winning more than 48,000 votes.

Sarah Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf and Roseanne Barr reunite for ABC's 'Roseanne'.

The irony of this is that the new Roseanne - absent the star's political leanings - is a genuinely amusing, thoughtful take on how white Americans who disagree strongly over the president and his views on essentially anyone who's not a white American can find a way to talk about these issues without killing each other.

"He says a lot of insane shit", Barr said. That's what they voted for, even if they disagree with the other things he says or stances that he takes. "It's a great thing to have a family divided by politics but still filled with love", Gilbert said.

Of course, not everyone is so happy to see Roseanne return, as Roseanne Barr herself has been a force to be reckoned with on social media with often controversial posts. "What a great thing to bring into this country right now".
