Roseanne Barr explains why her TV character
is a Trump supporter: ´It´s just realistic´

AOL.com, by Jennifer Kline

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/10/2018 1:29:30 PM

When "Roseanne" returns to TV in March, it may reignite some uncomfortable family conversations -- but that´s a good thing, according to the show´s stars. Roseanne Barr said Monday that her titular character is certainly a supporter of President Trump: "I´ve always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and of working class people," she said Monday, according to AP. "And in fact it was working class people who elected Trump." She continued, “Half the country voted for him, half of them didn’t. It’s just realistic." "Realistic" has long been the go-to descriptor for "Roseanne," which depicts

Good for her/them. Actually, I´ve always enjoyed the Roseanne show. It was hilarious, edgy in some episodes, and much like my own growing up (also in Illinois, blue collar family). Except without the humor. And look how I turned out! ;-)

She´s spot on. The very sort of people who were called "deplorables" by Shrillery and are discounted and looked down upon by the Left are exactly the people portrayed in her sitcom - blue-collar, working class, trying to make a dollar out of 15 cents. How else would they have voted?

I liked her early stand-up routines. They were typical observational comedy but had a nice wise-guy housewife twist. Then she got her TV show and I hated it. I´m not optimistic for the new one but will give it a shot.

I saw Roseanne a long time ago when she was doing Standup and she called herself a Domestic Goddess. I used that as my occupation on my tax return that year. They never called me on it.

Its nice that she recognizes working people elected President Trump. The half that voted for Mrs. Clinton are supported by the working half, pretending in Hollywood to be somebody they are not, or wealthy from Daddy’s efforts. For the greater part.

Lisa Marie Presley claims she’s in the red — to the tune of $16.7 million. In court documents relating to Presley’s ongoing divorce from Michael Lockwood, it was revealed that Elvis’ daughter owes debts in a number of areas, including income taxes, a defaulted mortgage and credit card bills. According to the documents, which were filed on Wednesday and obtained by PEOPLE Friday, Justin Stiegemeyer, Presley’s current business manager who is responsible for “day-to-day finances and paying all of her bills,” disclosed that the 50-year-old had first learned of her debt while her old business manager Provident Financial Management was

Lindsey Vonn didn´t have to make any excuses for her sixth-place finish in Saturday´s super-G at the 2018 Winter Olympics. TV analysts, newspaper writers, Twitter users and fans were already making them for her: Since Vonn happened to be the first skier out of the gate, she was at a tremendous disadvantage, one that proved fatal when she slipped near the end of the course, costing her precious time that would have easily won her gold.

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — The miserable, biting cold and wind whipping through the Taebaek Mountains has subsided, giving way to sun-splashed mornings and pleasantly brisk temperatures. The norovirus outbreak that sent dozens into violent stomach illness has seemingly been contained. The agenda-wielding political figures have vacated the premises, yielding the Olympic stage to the athletes.

The FBI admitted Friday that it received a detailed tip about accused Florida school shooter Nikolas Cruz in January, but failed to follow up and investigate. Within hours of the revelation, Florida Gov. Rick Scott demanded FBI Director Christopher Wray’s resignation – despite Wray offering an apology to the family of victims. (Snip) In a statement, the FBI said that a person close to Cruz, who has allegedly confessed to killing 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., called the FBI tip line with concerns on Jan. 5.

With the Lunar New Year round the corner, Chinese around the world are preparing to welcome the Year of the Dog. But in Malaysia, where people of ethnic Chinese descent make up almost a quarter of the population, images of the dog have been omitted fromLunar New Year decorations and merchandise for fear of offending the country´s Muslim majority. The omission has raised hackles in the Chinese community and caused concern among Malaysians of all faiths, who see it as yet another symptom of the country´s growing Islamic conservatism, driven by the government´s flirtation with hardline Islamist policies and a

Snow-covered beaches? Chilly iguanas? They are
part of a mysterious ‘hole’ in global warming

WASHINGTON - Frigid iguanas in Florida. Snowball fights on North Carolina’s beaches. Recent winters have delivered a bitter chill to the Southeast, reinforcing attitudes among some that global warming is a fraud. But according to a scientific study published this month, the Southeast’s colder winter weather is part of an isolated trend, linked to a more wavy pattern in the jet stream that crosses North America. That dipping jet stream allows artic air to plunge into the Southeast. Scientists call this colder weather a “hole” in overall global warming, or a “warming hole.” “What we are looking at is an

PARKLAND — The suspect in a deadly rampage at a Florida high school is a troubled teenager who posted disturbing material on social media before the shooting rampage that killed at least 17 people, according to a law enforcement official and former schoolmates. Broward Sheriff Scott Israel said the 19-year-old suspect, Nikolas Cruz, had been expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for "disciplinary reasons." "I don’t know the specifics," the sheriff said. (Snip) "He started progressively getting a little more weird," Mutchler said.

Bode Miller made a bad joke on Wednesday night while calling the women´s giant slalom event on NBC. Plain and simple. The six-time Olympic medalist, clearly kidding, insinuated that a skier´s marriage was the cause of her recent slump. But because Miller´s sense of humor is as dryer than a martini and because people actively look for ways to get offended and because a few folks complaining on Twitter is apparently indicative of a national groundswell, the skier had to apologize for what was, again, just a flat, bad joke. Miller was talking with play-by-play announcer Dan Hicks about the falloff

Kim, 17, whose parents moved to the United States in 1982 from South Korea, won the gold medal in the women’s snowboarding halfpipe competition in Pyeongchang.

But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job.
