Roseanne Barr remains based and amazing as ever as she gave salty eyes Kimmel a piece of her mind in front of his audience, (video below).
Roseanne Barr and John Goodman have been doing the round promoting the much-anticipated return of the hit T.V show Roseanne, which led them to the Trump hating Jimmy Kimmel show.
The interview kicked off with Kimmel bringing up Barr’s presidential run in 2012, which she said she ran the whole thing entirely on Twitter, saying she was “the original crazy Twitterer,” adding jokingly that Trump stole her schtick from her. Goodman joked he’s been paying hush money to women for years, which was clearly a reference to the ongoing Stormy Daniels controversy that CNN can’t stop reporting on a daily basis, Barr also noted that while she only got on the ballot of just three states, she still came in sixth overall, stating her big campaign issue was the legalization of marijuana.
When Roseanne mentioned her personal support of President Trump and the conflicts it has caused within her family, Kimmel asked her if her family had taken issue with her for voting for him. “We had some so pro-Hillarys and some pro-Trump, and there was a lot of fighting,” she replied.
“Weren’t you a friend, like a good friend, of Hillary Clinton’s at one point?” asked Kimmel.
Goodman then made the universal “crazy” gesture. Barr just smiled and said, “Yeah, I was.”
Kimmel’s tactics did not fly with Roseanne
Kimmel looking for dirt as always asked her “what happened,” saying she’d become “very down” on his beloved Clinton and even went as far of accusing her of being a “murderer” on Twitter.
“I did not!” said Barr laughing. When Kimmel said he’d dig up the tweet, she said, “I deleted it, so f*** you!” which got the crowd laughing. “I had some disagreement with her foreign policy,” said Barr.
When Barr questioned Kimmel if he agreed with Clinton’s foreign policy, he did what he does best and avoided the question, turning the conversation back to Trump saying “Never mind her policy what about Captain Wacko we’ve got running the country.”
“I’m shocked at it because I know you were a socially liberal person in general,” said Kimmel about her support for Trump.
“I’m still the same!” Barr not missing beat slammed Kimmel. “You all moved. You all went so f***ing far out, you lost everything. I mean seriously, a lot of your audience, and including me. I just want to say this Jimmy, a lot of us, no matter who we voted for, we don’t want to see our president fail, you know?”
Her statement was met with huge applause, and Kimmel agreed she might be right that the Left has gone too far.
Zip it up, Kimmel!
Barr then asked Jimmy if he’d rather Vice President Mike Pence as President. “Because we don’t want Pence,” she said. “You want Pence for the frickin’ president?” she asked Kimmel.
“No, I don’t want him either,” Kimmel replied.
“Then you zip that f***in lip!” said Barr. The crowd erupted.
Eventually, Jimmy steered the conversation to the show and actually praised it for having a “really great” dynamic that shows what real people are experiencing: open conflicts about political and ideological views.
Despite Kimmel’s worn out tactics to slam Trump and any of his supporters, he failed, Roseanne wasn’t having any of his crazy rhetoric and kept in control of the interview at all times.
