Cast Defends Roseanne Conner's Trump Vote

Cast Defends Roseanne Conner's Trump Vote

The 65-year-old reminded fans that Roseanne's original run focused on the working-class through storylines like the Conner family's lottery win, so she is likely trying to explore the assumption that only the affluent voted Trump into the White House.

"In The Rosanne Show, I've always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in". According to Barr, the series will take on some of Trump's presidency, as it is a show about a working class family. It's no secret that Barr, a Republican, is a staunch Trump supporter but she told the Television Critics Association panel that the decision to make her character a Trump voter as well was much more realistic than anything else. "And in fact it was working class people who elected Trump", Barr said Monday. While Barr herself has been relatively open about her allegiance to Trump on social media, politics have now found a place in season 10 of Roseanne. "I don't want to pigeonhole him and say just because he dresses this way that's the only thing about him".

"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 that Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don't agree with", she said. Barr said, "Well, that's your opinion".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Barr told reporters during a press tour that should Winfrey run for president in 2020, as many Americans are calling for after her emotional and riveting Golden Globes acceptance speech, she would possibly consider an opposition run. "For me, it was a great opportunity to have a family that can divided by politics but still is filled with love and what a great thing to bring into the country right now".

"Roseanne", which ran on ABC from 1988 to 1997, featured Barr as the outspoken mother of four children in a blue-collar family.

Executive producer Bruce Helford added that Roseanne's husband Dan (John Goodman) "didn't necessarily" vote for Trump, ("I don't think he voted", he said.) while Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) was pro-Hillary Clinton.

Goodman, who went on to arguably the most high-profile career of all the cast, including starring roles in "The Big Lebowski", "The Artist" and "10 Cloverfield Lane", said getting back into character was a cinch. Sarah Chalke, who played the character Becky in later seasons, will also appear as new character Andrea.

The "Roseanne" reboot will premiere on ABC on Tuesday, March 27, at 8:00 p.m. EST.
