"I feel like half the people voted for Trump and half didn't, so it's just realistic", she told journalists at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.
If you're thinking, hey, wait a minute, those don't sound like new shows, congratulations for paying attention.
Barr's character, Roseanne Conner, is a working-class mom who supports Trump. Half the people voted for Trump and half didn't. 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. 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.
"And, in fact, it was working-class people who elected Trump, so I felt like that was very real and something that needed to be discussed", she said.
Though one of the writers of the Roseanne revival tried to jump in, Barr, at one point said, "Speaking of racism, I'm just going to say it".
It was perhaps odd that Roseanne Barr and John Goodman took the stage for the Best TV Drama award, considering they led one of TV's most popular comedies through the '80s and '90s.
Moments like these make it hard to believe that Roseanne Conner would be taken in by someone like Trump-"working class" background or not.
Helford also cited perhaps wanting to start to heal things in this country, and star and executive producer Sara Gilbert echoed his sentiments.
Roseanne Barr thinks she'd be a better choice than President Oprah.
Barr, in real life, is a staunch Trump backer, so some reporters naturally reporters wanted to know if she pushed for her character to follow suit. People feel like they can't disagree and still love and talk to each other. "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".
The reboot, 21 years after its nine-season run ended, immediately dives into contemporary politics with family members arguing for and against President Trump. Additionally, she said that she is not a "Trump apologist" and there are things he has done that she doesn't agree with. On some level, everybody involved realizes that this could work in the show's favor - so long as Barr herself can stay on message.
Barr chimed in saying, "I said, and I'll say it again. What a great thing to bring into this country right now".
