In the new episodes, the titular Roseanne, played by Barr, is now a grandmother who voted for Trump and at times clashes with family members and friends with opposing views, the show's cast and producers said at a Television Critics Association event.

If you're thinking, hey, wait a minute, those don't sound like new shows, congratulations for paying attention.

An awkward reunion with "Roseanne": The revival of the once groundbreaking sitcom "Roseanne" will, according to its star, Roseanne Barr, confront the fact that people in America are divided when it comes to politics.

Roseanne Barr (left) said making her TV counterpart a Trump supporter made sense for the show about a working-class American family. "Half the people voted for Trump and half didn't, so it's just realistic". Bruce Helford, one of the show's executive producers, said on Monday that the Conners will represent a "full cross-section of ideas and beliefs". Now, in the show's 2018 revival (debuting in March), Roseanne is a Trump supporter, while her sister Jackie is anything but, which has caused a rift between the two.

Roseanne has always been, in one way or another, a revolutionary show.

Barr echoed this, saying that in the reboot she sought to address "polarization in the family and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American".

Barr, who sat on the famed Roseanne couch with original cast members including John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf, said she meant to revisit the groundbreaking comedy.

"I've always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and working-class people", Bar said Monday at the T.C.A. panel.

So it's no surprise that people were confused by Barr's participation in the fight against sexual assault considering there have been several claims of sexual assault against President Trump.

When the reporter pointed to Trump's early campaign comments regarding Mexicans, Barr elaborated further: "Well, he says a lot of insane shit". Cummings felt that desire for jobs would explain Roseanne Conner voting for Trump, even if she didn't agree with him on everything.

"A big part of why I couldn't vote for Hillary Clinton is because of Haiti", Barr said.

"People feel like they can't disagree and still love each other and talk to each other".

"We have the conversation about why we don't agree", Fishman said.

"I'm not a Trump apologist", she continued. On some level, everybody involved realizes that this could work in the show's favor - so long as Barr herself can stay on message.
