Actress Roseanne Barr criticized the recently-inked deal between former President Barack Obama and video-streaming giant Netflix, suggesting on Sunday that going from the White House into media production isn’t the best idea.
I don’t think any President should go from WH to producing big media 4 public consumption. It’s an unholy alliance. Leave show biz 2 professionals-altho i do think going from show biz 2 WH is Ok-I might do it one day, then retire from both.

Barr called the joint venture, which will reportedly have the Obamas consulting on a number of scripted and unscripted projects, “an unholy alliance” while making it clear that she had no problem with people leaving show business for politics.
Barr herself, for example, has run for president twice, and said in her tweet that she might do it again in the future. She has also vocally supported President Donald Trump — both in real life and on her recently rebooted ABC sitcom. (RELATED: Roseanne On People Mad That She Supports Trump: ‘I Don’t Give A F**k’)
Prior to criticizing the Obama/Netflix deal Barr had some fun with the idea on Twitter, taking submissions from her followers for possible shows.
