No one can ever accuse Roseanne Barr of not saying exactly what she thinks at all times.
Barr was joined by actor John Goodman on Thursday night’s episode of ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” to sit down with host and TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome) sufferer Jimmy Kimmel to talk about the upcoming return of their hit 90s show “Roseanne.”
Kimmel brought up how the Roseanne character on the show voted for President Trump, much like Barr herself. One of the themes on the reincarnation of “Roseanne” is that there is conflict between family members for voting differently in the 2016 election.
Barr brought up the point of how those conflicts are happening in real life, too. Family arguments over political support have gripped a country that once found it taboo to talk about religion or politics publicly.
Barr then flipped Kimmel the bird after the host brought ups now-deleted tweet that Kimmel said Barr claimed that failed Democratic nominee for president Hillary Clinton.
Here’s the video of the political portion of the interview:
Kimmel basically wondered how Barr could vote for Trump considering her previous friendship with Clinton.
“I had some disagreement with her foreign policy,” Barr rationally responded.
A look back into the recent history between Barr and Clinton shows that foreign policy wasn’t the only thing that left Barr jaded at the prospect of Clinton becoming president.
In a 2016 interview with Yahoo! Entertainment, Barr claimed not to endorse Trump in 2016. But, she also said that Clinton had the press bought and paid for.
Here’s what she told Yahoo!:
I did not endorse Donald Trump. I don’t endorse people. … I said the press was corrupt and that Hillary owns the press and that people in this country are not allowed to say anything except for that they love Hillary, or they’ll be harassed, especially on social media, until they leave or hang their head in shame. Because if you don’t endorse Hillary, then you’re anti-American, a racist, a sexist, or whatever names her robots throw around. She did the same thing to Bernie [Sanders] that she’s now doing to Trump.
As the interview continued, Kimmel said that he thought Barr was “socially liberal,” but Barr was too smart to fall for that.
“I’m still the same,” Barr said. “You moved. You all went so f*ckin’ far out, you lost everybody.”
Kimmel shockingly responded by saying, “You’re probably right, by the way.”
Of course she’s right! I’ve been saying for years now that the political landscape shifted to where Democrats are now Socialists, Republicans are now Democrats and then there’s everybody else (classical liberals, conservatives, Libertarians, etc.).
Sometimes the truth hurts, Jimmy. Even when you’re getting flipped off by Roseanne.
