Supporter Roseanne Barr gives cringe-worthy interview to Jimmy Kimmel

27 March 2018

News at the PaleyLive panel for Roseanne in New York City.

Barr, who counts herself as a Trump supporter, was not able to fully express why she backs the president so intensely.

Barr made headlines Thursday after getting into a heated debate with Jimmy Kimmel as she and Goodman visited his late night show.

'Sara and John were on Sara's talk show and they did a little sketch, ' Roseanne said.

But he says he thinks it's important to cover the political dynamic on the show. Everybody was in, and so then it went from a special to a series and we had a deal in three weeks'.

Barr responded: "I'm still the same".

Kimmel told Roseanne he was "shocked" over Roseanne's previously-stated support of the commander-in-chief, as he knew her as 'a very socially liberal person in general'. With a big smile she proclaims, "I was just overwhelmed".

Kimmel prodded Barr about both her voting record and her character's-and even questioned her about her one-time friendship with Trump's Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. I had never seen a kid like her in a family sitcom.

"You want Pence? You want Pence for the frickin' president", Barr asked, referring to Vice President Mike Pence. When Kimmel replied that he didn't, Barr responded: "Well, then zip that fucking lip" before collapsing on the couch in laughter.

When Kimmel said he would find the tweet, Barr gave him the finger, declaring, "I deleted it, so f- you!"

"Roseanne" airs Tuesday at 8 p.m.
