Roseanne Barr says having her character be a Trump voter is 'realistic'

Barr previously won the presidential nomination in 2012 of the Peace and Freedom Party after losing the Green Party nomination. Roseanne in the show is a Donald Trump supporter, and this will be in some way a part of the narrative. "There are a lot of things he's done and said that I don't agree with in the same way there are probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said you don't agree with". "It's just realistic. I've always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American working-class people and, in fact, it was working-class people who elected Trump, so I felt that was very real and something that needed to be discussed, especially about polarization within the family and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American".

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. "Nobody is brainwashed into agreeing with a hundred percent of what anybody says, let alone a politician or a candidate", she added.

Co-star Sara Gilbert, an executive producer and also the driving force behind the revival, called the debate on the show "a great opportunity to have a family that can be divided by politics and still be united by love;" and Michael Fishman, who was a child actor while playing DJ on the original series and is now a father himself, defended growing up on the set, saying it taught him to be "open-minded". I'm not a Trump apologist. That's what they voted for, even if they disagree with the other things he says or stances that he takes. One bright thing I read today is, this is the lowest black unemployment for many, many years, so I think that's great. I do support jobs for people.

This was a detail that Barr believed was very important to include if she wanted it to be a "true reflection of the society we live in".

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

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. I think it's a time to close ranks.

An ABC publicist reportedly tried to stop the panel but Barr continued.

A day packed with panels for new ABC shows at the Television Critics Association winter 2018 press tour ended with back-to-back discussions for two of the network's most anticipated shows, "Roseanne" and "American Idol".
