Roseanne Barr said the country is lucky to have President Donald Trump and explained why she thinks Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election in an interview Thursday night ahead of the March revival of her classic sitcom Roseanne.
“He talked about jobs. That’s what you need to do if you want working people to vote for you. Not Syrian airspace,” Barr told ABC’s 20/20 Thursday night in a special about the sitcom revival. “I don’t think Hillary talked about jobs much. She was always talking about Syrian airspace. Do you think people in America care? Maybe they do, I didn’t, though.”
Barr added that the 2016 presidential matchup proved to be a boon to television comedy writing.
“Trump offended half of America and she offended the other half, so that’s great for sitcoms,” Barr said. “It’s great for comedy. We’re lucky to have him as a president, it’s great for comedy.”
