Roseanne Barr said “we’re lucky” to have President Donald Trump and took a jab at Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign in a clip from her upcoming “20/20” appearance.
“He [Trump] did talked about jobs. That’s what you need to do if you want working people to vote for you,” the 65-year-old actress shared in the video posted Thursday on the Twitter account for the ABC program. (RELATED: ‘Roseanne’ Reboot Will Tackle Trump Era)
‘Roseanne’ star @therealroseanne says “we’re lucky” to have Trump as President: “Trump offended half of America and [Hillary Clinton] offended the other half, so that’s great for sitcoms. It’s great for comedy.” #Roseanne #ABC2020 https://t.co/P9rxblLmKs pic.twitter.com/qt6KFu1eKL

“Not Syrian airspace,” she added. ” I don’t think Hillary talked about jobs much. She was always just talking about Syrian airspace. I mean do you think people in America care? Maybe they do, I didn’t, though.”
Barr also talked about her character being a Trump supporter on the reboot of the popular 90s sitcom “Roseanne” when it returns to television next month.
“Trump offended half of America and she [Hillary Clinton] offended the other half, so that’s great for sitcoms,” the actress said. “It’s great for comedy. We’re lucky to have him as a president, it’s great for comedy.”
Last month during the 2018 Television Critics’ Association Winter Press Tour, the “Roseanne” star said that the series will deal with working-class America under President Trump.
“In ‘The Rosanne Show,’ I’ve always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in. I feel like half the people voted for Trump and half didn’t, so it’s just realistic,” Barr said. “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 and especially about polarization in the family and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American.”
