'Roseanne' returns to TV as a Trump supporter

"In The Rosanne Show, I've always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in".

And, Barr will be bringing her politics to the reboot of her self-titled sitcom, which sees the actress' Trump-supporting alter-ego butting heads with family members after the election.

So it's no surprise that people were confused by Barr's participation in the fight against sexual assault considering there have been several claims of sexual assault against President Trump. She also added that she would be running for Prime Minister of Israel.

Barr is a real-life supporter of Trump who said in a since-deleted tweet December 27 that she voted for the businessman to "shake up the status quo & the staid establishment".

Roseanne Barr thinks she would make a better president than Oprah Winfrey.

Roseanne returns with its nine-episode run on March 27 on ABC, although the cast and creators all say they hope to get picked up for more seasons.

Barr appeared on stage to present an award with fellow Roseanne star John Goodman.

But not everyone is pleased with the decision to have Barr play a Trump supporter on TV.

Gilbert, who plays daughter Darlene Conner, hinted that perhaps mother and daughter may have at least one political discussion in the context of an upcoming episode.

"This is a time when our country is divided", said returning cast member Sara Gilbert, according to the Hollywood Reporter. What we really wanted to do was find a way for this particular family, which represents a full cross section of values and beliefs.

"Half of the country voted for [Trump], and half of them didn't", she pointed out. People feel like they can't disagree and still love and talk to each other.

"There are a lot of things he has said and done that I don't agree with, like there's probably a lot of things that Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don't agree with", she said. It's a great opportunity to have a family divided by politics but ... still filled with love. Instead, she is just no longer on the social media platform, having had her password taken away by her son. There are a lot of things he's said and done that I don't agree with, just like there are a lot of things Hillary Clinton has said and done that you don't agree with. Now, every time I go home for Thanksgiving, an old high-school buddy has one beer too many and lets slip my opposition to Trump, forcing me to spend 20 minutes justifying myself to everyone else in the bar.
