Roseanne character to be Trump supporter in series reboot

"It was the working-class people who elected Trump", Barr said Monday while promoting the sitcom at a Television Critics Association event in Pasadena, Calif.

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

Not only is the iconic Roseanne Show set to make a YUGE comeback, the main character "Roseanne" is planning to make waves by being an unapologetic Trump supporter.

The award-winning 1990s sitcom is returning to the ABC network in March, and actress Roseanne Barr says her choice to depict her working-class character as pro-Trump is "realistic".

Barr's character on ABC's "Roseanne" will be a "grandmother who voted for Trump and at times clashes with family members and friends with opposing views", according to Reuters. "We wanted to find a way for this family to represent a full cross-section of beliefs", Helford said. Now, in the show's 2018 revival (debuting in March), Roseanne is a Trump supporter, while her sister Jackie is anything but, which has caused a rift between the two.

"Actually, I think I'd be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump". Many have wondered if Barr's political leanings would bleed into the show itself, but showrunner Bruce Helford and the cast have said this show is about bringing disparate viewers together, rather than driving down a deeper wedge.

In addition, 75 FBS players , as well as 98 players and 31 coaches from the divisional ranks are included on the 2018 ballot. But he learned Monday that he has already gained inclusion in the College Football Hall of Fame in December.

"In The Rosanne Show, I've always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in". She also said she was glad black unemployment is the lowest it's been in years, presumably crediting Trump with those jobs, then concluded by saying that we need to end "hate-riotism" in America and learn how to talk to each other.

So it's no surprise that people were confused by Barr's participation in the fight against sexual assault considering there have been several claims of sexual assault against President Trump.

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. Goodman's Dan Conner died in the finale, to be explained through Roseanne's dreams and writing.

"Part of what's going on is that people feel like they can't disagree and still love each other or still talk to each other".

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. "It's a great thing to have a family divided by politics but still filled with love", Gilbert said.
