As 'Roseanne' Returns to TV, Her Political Beliefs Take Center Stage

John Goodman Roseanne Bar Sarah Chalke on her 'Roseanne' return and not sharing the role of Becky anymore

The episode started with a joke about Roseanne thinking Dan was dead.

"I just wanted to have that dialogue about families torn apart by the election and their political differences of opinion and how we handle it".

That episode still resonates today.

As Roseanne shot to the top of Twitter trends after its debut on Tuesday, many fans said they were boycotting the revival due to the actress' (and her character's) vocal Trump support. And it was awkward.

The lottery win isn't the only change, either - at the end of season eight, Roseanne's husband Dan has a heart attack and almost dies, and then Roseanne leaves him when he comes home and quickly ignores the new diet meant to keep him alive. The Conners remain rooted in a working-class household ― one that still faces financial issues and job struggles. "How working class people - how and why they elected Trump". I don't think she's too happy about that. And I know so many people who have mixed families. And that's what drives her. Roseanne Conner (Roseanne Barr) voted for Trump; her sister Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) emphatically didn't. I'm not even sure those are the strangest episodes, either - that honor might belong to theAbFab crossover Halloween episode, where Roseanne and Jackie attend a fancy NYC party and make friends with Patsy and Edina, who turn out to be members of a Satanic cult. She added that she's not an apologist for the president and doesn't agree with all he's said and done, including some "crazy" things. I mean, this might come as a complete shock to you, but we nearly lost our house, the way things are going.

"Not on the real news", says Roseanne.


Goranson noted that although Trump is mentioned in the first episode, he's not a constant throughout the entire season.

Darlene: "I don't know, can I have some money?". We did a lot of research.

"He's said some really silly things about me, but I still love him", she said of Clooney, leading Stern to ask if an anecdote he heard about his time on the show was actually true.

If you ignore season nine, you also ignore a locus for one of the central questions of the Roseanne revival.

Are you ready for her? Barr has spoken about this before, telling Esquire in 2013 that she believes "generations of people, not only here but all over the world", have been affected by (and are still affected by) government mind control connected to (or similar to?) the known drug experiments (MK-ULTRA was one) undertaken by the Central Intelligence Agency in the 1950s and 1960s. "She's trying to find herself and I think by the end of the season, she does to a certain extant - the extent a 16-year-old can find themselves". "It's not what the show's about".
