Roseanne Barr is back and bringing the white hot quotes. While being interviewed on Monday about her show, she defended her support of Trump and waved off “President Oprah.” She said even though Trump says “crazy sh**” she still has his back.
Reporters were very curious about whether or not her support of Trump would show up in her reborn show. She promised the show would have “no agenda” and would exhibit” cross-section of values and beliefs” in hopes of stirring “honest and real” debate. Eventually Barr caved and gave some politically charged quotes.
Later, when asked about whether she’d vote for Oprah Winfrey if the mogul would run for president in 2020, Barr hesitated. “I do love Oprah. Of course, I love Oprah like everybody else. But you know what? I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and, you know, try something different,” she said, referring to her support of Trump. What about Susan Sarandon for president?, another reporter asked. “Actually, I think I’d be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump. And I did run in 2012,” she said.
When a reporter accused Trump of being a xenophobe, Barr replied, “Well that’s you opinion.” Then she went a little deeper on the issue.
“Well, he says a lot of crazy sh**,” Barr said, continuing, “I’m not a Trump apologist. 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. Nobody is brainwashed into agreeing with 100 percent of what anybody says.”
Barr also mentioned the positives of the Trump administration, including the economy and low unemployment level. Near the end of the discussion, Barr called for an end to “hatriotism.”
