Roseanne Barr joked with Howard Stern Tuesday that President Donald Trump is “stealing her act” after she ran for president in 2012 and campaigned via Twitter.
“I think Trump’s stealing my act,” the 65-year-old comedian and actress shared during the “Howard Stern” show on Sirius XM Radio. “That’s why I like him, because I ran my whole campaign on Twitter in 2012.”
The host then teased her about the fact that Trump won, and what happened to her. Barr responded that she was only on three ballots as the Peace and Freedom Party nominee, but still managed to come in sixth out of 50 thanks to Twitter.
Stern then talked about the upcoming reboot for “Roseanne” and asked how political the show is going to get.
“It’s political only that, like Tip O’ Neil said ‘all politics is local,'” John Goodman, who plays Barr’s husband Dan Connor shared. “And it’s how it affects our unit of family and how we deal with the outside forces.”
The radio host also asked if the family “is divided politically” on the show.
“Yeah, like everybody’s family I know is divided,” Barr responded. “I hope it will get people talking to each other. The show is all sides and that’s what I like is the mish-mosh of our country being in a very diverse place, but we come together. And if we forget that, I think it’s not good for us.”
