Donald Trump wasn't the first member of the Trump family to reach out to Roseanne to congratulate her on the success of her show.

In 2016, Barr voted for President Trump, and she's now portraying a Trump supporter on screen in the reboot of her eponymous 1990s sitcom which premiered on ABC Tuesday to rave reviews...

The White House confirmed the Wednesday night phone call from Trump to Barr. The original "Roseanne" aired on ABC from 1988 to 1997. However, they did not play that way. "There are a lot of things he's done and said that I don't agree with in the same way there are probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said you don't agree with".

The revival features original characters including Sara Gilbert, John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf.

But it's the politics that's grabbed the press attention. Besides, Roseanne Conner's pro-Trump election stance served a clear goal on the show.

Roseanne's sister Jackie (multiple Emmy victor Laurie Metcalf) sports a "Nasty Woman" T-shirt and pink pussy hat of the type worn at women's marches against the Republican president's administration.

Trump seized on its ratings during a speech Thursday in Richfield, Ohio, that was to be about infrastructure but hopscotched through other topics. Get a huge boost to your career from your support of the president and then turn around and launch a bid to unseat him? There's some truth to this: "Roseanne's character is whip-smart and unwilling to take crap from anyone - she's sort of a female mini-Trump in terms of personality". He was just happy for me.

"It's feisty and amusing and a little sad". Life is good. So what do you do to top all that off? Shapiro, who authored a book about the subversive propaganda of Hollywood shows, also observes, "There's something else going on in Roseanne that should disturb conservatives: the redefinition of Trump supporters as blue collar leftists rather than conservatives".

The same holds true for "people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American". Barr's character, Roseanne Conner, is the household's matriarch.
