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". "Of course I love Oprah like everybody else", Barr said when asked about the daytime TV mogul's now-famous speech.
The reboot, which includes most of the original cast, including John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf, will be in that same spirit. Also, since the show's (finally credited) creator and star Roseanne Barr is an outspoken Republican, it's nearly expected that the reboot of her iconic series would mention Trump. "I would really like to see an end to hatriotism in this country".
She also explained why it was important for her to make her TV husband Dan and her character in the sitcom Trump supporters.
The main character's political views will mirror those of Barr herself, who so frequently offers blunt, pro-Trump opinions on Twitter that many users have called for a boycott of the reboot with the hashtag #BoycottRoseanne. "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". Here's what she had to say.
"It was working-class people who elected Trump, and that was very real and needed to be discussed", said Barr, who added that the idea of people hating others for voting differently from them is "un-American".

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.
Comedy veteran Barr, who made her own White House bid in 2012 as the Peace and Freedom Party's nominee, also said Monday that she would likely be a superior commander in chief than the current president. I'm not a Trump apologist. I do support jobs for people. "Actually, I think I would be a better president than Oprah or Susan Sarandon, possibly even President Trump". "No one's brainwashed into agreeing with 100 percent of what anybody says, let alone a politician or a candidate". "I think that a great way to fight racism is that everybody has a job".
Reportedly, an ABC publicist did try to stop the panel, but Roseanne Barr just pressed ahead with her comments.
