Roseanne Barr Launching Comeback, Says She Was Fired For Trump Support!

Go Roseanne, we support you!


You know, it’s funny….for decades I was not a Roseanne Barr fan.

I thought she was loud, obnoxious and worst of all not that funny.

But as she’s gotten older I’ve found she’s actually pretty insightful and I’ve become a big fan.

I really became a fan when she gave her support to President Trump and was not afraid of the consequences.

Well good news friends, after taking some time off she is ready to make a big comeback!


Here's more, from The Hill:

Roseanne Barr is ripping what she calls Hollywood's "triple standard" when it comes to supporters of President Trump as she embarks on a comeback comedy tour.

"I think it's a triple standard. All of Hollywood, they just hate him," Barr told DailyMailTV in an interview airing Tuesday. "And they hate those of us who like him. There's no way around it."

Barr, 66, was abruptly fired last year by ABC after posting a racist tweet about former Obama White House aide Valerie Jarrett. The network also canceled Barr's top-rated sitcom, "Roseanne," amid the controversy before rebranding it as “The Conners” without her.

Barr, a staunch Trump supporter, apologized but later blasted ABC for the move. 

"It was a perfect storm. Kind of a little bit too perfect," Barr told DailyMailTV's Jesse Palmer. She suggested, without evidence, that the controversy and her show's cancelation may have been part of a coordinated effort. "Sometimes I think, was this orchestrated? The whole thing? Asking me back — needing so badly to slam Trump and people who voted for him."

The comic said she'll soon start on a new series of standup dates with fellow comedian Andrew Dice Clay, dubbed the "Mr. and Mrs. America Tour."

"Dice talked me into it. He goes, 'People are wanting to hear what you have to say,'" Barr said of the pair of standup stops, which begin Thursday in New York.

"I love standup comedy," Barr added.

Fox News had more:

Roseanne Barr believes she was fired from her eponymous sitcom revival because of her support for President Donald Trump.

"When it happened it was like I thought I was gonna lose my life. It was devastating and horrible and is unprecedented too that they would do that to me," Barr, 66, told The Daily Mail in an interview released Tuesday.

"It was a perfect storm. That's what I think, just the perfect storm at the perfect time," she told the outlet. "Kind of a little bit too perfect. Sometimes I think, 'Was this orchestrated? The whole thing?'"

ABC canceled the "Roseanne" reboot last May after a tweet where she compared President Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to "Planet of the Apes." She apologized at the time and blamed her remark on Ambien, but the damage was done. ABC launched a spinoff, "The Conners," which killed off Barr's character.

Since then, Barr says she's ditched Ambien — and her former co-stars.

"I've been [Ambien] sober for a year and a half since I got fired," she said. "I haven't used Ambien and my life is really, really so much better and I really would like people to understand that. That's a very powerful drug that does a lot of negative harm to people who use it. I haven't used it since my Ambien tweet and you've got to be real careful. It makes you do whack stuff."

Barr also reiterated her claim that her tweet wasn't the one that got "Roseanne" axed, alleging that co-star Sara Gilbert's tweet calling her remark "abhorrent" was "the tweet that got the show canceled to be honest."

Barr hasn't kept in touch with her former co-stars since she got the boot from ABC, nor does she keep up with "The Conners." She said of Gilbert specifically, "When somebody just doesn't care how their actions affect you, what's there to talk about? There's nothing to talk about."

An outspoken supporter of Trump, Barr thinks her political leanings made her a target for the network despite the massive ratings success of "Roseanne."

"All of Hollywood, they just hate him and they hate those of us who like him. There is no way around it," she said of Trump. "So, yeah, I think they took me off because I liked him and I like him because I'm a Jew and he likes Israel."
