HINDI lingid sa publiko na ibinoto ni Roseanne Barr si Donald Trump sa pagkapresidente, gayundin ang kanyang alter-ego sa reboot ng kanyang ABC show na Roseanne – at nitong nakaraang Lunes ay ipinaliwanag niya sa TCA na gusto niyang maging kinatawan ng working classes sa America.

“I’ve always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and working-class people,” aniya, “and in fact, it was working-class people who elected Trump, so I felt that yeah, 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.”

Natanong si Barr tungkol sa kanyang pagsuporta kay Trump at kung iboboto ba niya sa pagkapresidente si Oprah Winfrey.

“I do love Oprah,” sagot niya. “Of course I love Oprah like everybody else, but you know what? I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and try something different.”

Nang tanungin naman kung susuportahan niya si Susan Sarandon, napatawa si Barr sa sariling sagot niyang, “I think I would be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, and possibly even President Trump. And I did run in 2012.”

Sa kanyang unang paglabas sa show, agad naipakita ng karakter ni Roseanne ang pagkontra niya sa racism, at nang tanungin kung bakit niya ibinoto si Trump, dahil siya ay isang racist, ang sabi ni Barr sa nagtanong, “Well that’s your opinion.”

Ngunit nang talakayin naman ang anti-Mexican comments ni Trump, salaysay ni Barr, “He says a lot of crazy sh*t… I’m not a Trump apologist, but there are a lot of things he has said and done that I don’t agree with, like there’s probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don’t agree with, and so nobody is brainwashed into agreeing with 100 percent of what anybody says, let alone a politician or a candidate.”

Sa dulo ng panel discussion, sinabi ni Barr na, “It’s always the lesser of two evils, and we all have to face our own conscience in how we do that…I think it’s the time to close ranks and I would really like to see an end to ‘hatriedism’ in this country.” - Deadline
