“They gave a very sensational headline for a great hourlong interview in which I discussed the corruption of our election system, and I’m so offended that they did that,” Barr said. “There I was speaking about the press and how it’s so corrupt, and that’s what they did. Of all the corrupted, the most corrupt is the press.”

“I endorse myself,” she added. “I will be writing my name in until I win, and I’ve said that 10 million times. I will be writing myself in in every election from now until I win.”

“I did not endorse Donald Trump,” she continued. “I don’t endorse people. I said the press was corrupt and that Hillary owns the press and that people in this country are not allowed to say anything except for that they love Hillary, or they’ll be harassed, especially on social media, until they leave or hang their head in shame.”

Barr said she won’t be supporting Hillary Clinton either, and attacked the media for putting words in her mouth. (RELATED: Roseanne Barr: ‘We Would Be So Lucky If Trump Won’)

“Because if you don’t endorse Hillary, then you’re anti-American, a racist, a sexist, or whatever names her robots throw around,” she said. “She did the same thing to Bernie [Sanders] that she’s now doing to Trump.”

In the interview earlier this month with the Hollywood Reporter, the actress is quoted saying otherwise.

“I think we would be so lucky if Trump won,” Barr said. “Because then it wouldn’t be Hillary.”
