While we all loved the sitcom Roseanne, sometimes the real Roseanne Barr is hard to take. She’s been known for being abrasive, transphobic and openly shared her Roseanne Trump vote during the 2016 election. It has been a year since that fateful election, but Barr is still defending her choice to vote for a truly, truly awful man.
Barr has gone fully into the tank for Trump. In a series of Roseanne Trump tweets, she wrote:
For those who wonder — back in the day when I was called a ‘liberal’ by journalists, I used to answer “I’m not a Liberal, I’m a radical” and I still am. I voted Trump to shake up the status quo & the staid establishment. He is draining the swamp of thieves who steal public money and put it into private pockets, which is TREASONOUS.
Trump is fighting pedophiles and he likes Jews — that infuriates some people. Let’s help to awaken our leftist brothers and sisters about child sex trafficking in America and the world, and how our @Potus is battling it like no President before him. Send links, thanks!
Guys, thanks for helping me show that diversity of opinion is what makes America great! I put all opinions here on my TL bc I LOVE AMERICA!
Given that Trump endorsed accused pedophile Roy Moore, we’re not exactly sure what she means about Trump fighting pedophiles. We’re not really sold on the idea that Trump is getting rid of people who take public funds. Has she seen the new GOP tax bill?
Some of her followers weren’t convinced either.
Though she also had her supporters, too. James Sandzik, of the cancelled Discovery show Dukes of Haggle claimed he lost his show “because of the left’s politics”:
Though we couldn’t find anything about Sandzik’s firing in the news — nor had we ever heard of his show — IMDB says there were six episodes, but they only have information on one, and the tagline, “Take viewers inside the underground barter and auction economy, where one man’s trash is truly another man’s treasure.”
Perhaps it’s a liberal conspiracy that an American Pickers rip off didn’t get any viewers?
That said, we could do without the way Barr co-opts the #metoo movement for people who don’t like Hillary Clinton:
