Bill Maher dedicated a segment of his show on Friday to making a personal plea to his “dear friend” Roseanne Barr, begging her to rethink her support of President Donald Trump.
After congratulating her on her “big fat hit,” the recently rebooted “Roseanne” on ABC, Maher suggested that maybe supporting Trump wasn’t the best plan going forward.
You’re now the face of the Trump supporter because you really do speak for a certain kind of American who knows they’re being screwed by someone, they just don’t know who. But here’s what you’re missing about Trump: when he says he’s ‘looking out for the little guy,’ he’s talking about his d*ck.
Maher went on to point out some of Roseanne’s previous comments, apparently suggesting that she return to her “socialist” roots. “You’re a socialist! You’ve been one for 30 years!… You said ‘all of my ideas R based in socialism.’ How does that intersect with Trump? All his ideas are based on national socialism… I’m kidding, he doesn’t have any ideas.”
Maher cited the recent tax cuts as yet another reason that Roseanne should not support Trump. “The top 1 percent walked away with 83 percent of the benefits. The elites he rails against on Twitter got billions, forever, and Roseanne Conner got peanuts with an expiration date.”
Referring to his friend as “Rosie the Pivoter,” Maher suggested that the best plan for the reboot’s second season might be a reversal, and Roseanne’s disillusionment with Trump.
