Roseanne Barr does not suffer Hollywood fools for one reason – when you have a hit show you don’t have to.
A hit sitcom means you have leverage and Roseanne is not shy about using hers to keep at least one pro-Trump show on the air.
ABC entertainment president Channing Dungey who made the huge mistake of saying this:
“I think that they’re going to stay on the path that they were on towards the end of last season, which is away from politics and towards family,” Dungey said.
Hollywood is confused and a little terrified by the huge reaction to Roseanne’s hit show. They thought everyone hated Trump like they do.
So Roseanne Barr came forward and set the record straight.
“Don’t worry, #Roseanne show fans-next season will be even braver/funnier/timely than this season, despite what anyone mistakenly says,” the actress wrote on Twitter.

The show has enjoyed historically high ratings since its return to the airwaves in March, earning an impressive 27 million viewers on its debut, while also managing to maintain the majority of its audience since then.
Part of the rebooted Roseanne’s success may be attributed to its exploration of prominent issues such as Donald Trump’s election to the presidency, the effects of illegal immigration, and perceived bigotry towards Muslims living in the United States.
