Roseanne Barr Pushes Back on Jimmy Kimmel’s Trump Criticisms

Appearing on the liberal comedian's late-night show, the Donald Trump-supporting actress stood up for her beliefs

Agree with her or not — you have to at least give credit to Roseanne Barr for refusing to back down.

While many right-leaning artists and creative people are facing more and more professional consequences today, Barr continues to defy the status quo.

She is open about her varied opinions and her support for President Donald Trump.

And she doubled down on that support for the president in rather unfriendly territory for a Trump supporter: Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show.

Kimmel pushed Barr about her support of Trump and the fact that she made her character in the “Roseanne” revival a supporter of the president as well.

“I’m shocked because I know you are a very socially liberal person in general,” Kimmel said to Barr.

“I’m still the same — you all moved,” Barr responded bluntly. “You all moved so f***ing far out you lost everybody.”

She added, “A lot of your audience, and including me — I just want to say this, Jimmy,” said Barr. “A lot of us, you know, no matter who we voted for — we don’t want to see our president fail. Because we don’t want Pence.”

She then asked Kimmel if he wanted Pence as president — should Trump fail or be impeached — to which he said no. To that, Barr said, “Then zip that f***ing lip.”

“Get out there and vote. Change it if you don’t like it.”

Barr concluded her political comments this way: “Here’s my two cents, damn it. It’s up to us to make this government work, no matter who’s president. It’s up to us to do our job as citizens, and if we don’t like something, let ’em know you don’t like it, and then you’ve got another election in two years. Get out there and vote. Change it if you don’t like it.”

“Roseanne” returns to ABC on March 27.
