Bill Maher can’t quite understand why Roseanne Barr is so pro-Donald Trump, but he has a theory or two.
The “Real Time” host took aim at his “dear friend” Barr and the revival of her hit show “Roseanne”. “Like it or not you are now the face of the Trump supporter because you really do speak for a certain kind of American who knows they’re being screwed by someone, they just don’t know who,” Maher addressed Barr.
“But here’s what you’re missing about Trump, when he says he’s ‘looking out for the little guy,’ he’s talking about his d**k,” the comedian teased.
“So, here’s the deal. I get that you were mad as hell and wanted to throw a monkey wrench into the whole works, and I won’t judge that,” Maher continued. “But if in the next six months you don’t see Trump’s magic starting to work for you, if you’re still trading pills and driving an Uber, wouldn’t the more realistic plot line for season two be your disillusionment with Donald Trump?”
And Maher wanted to remind Barr she used to be a socialist: “You’re not Archie Bunker, you’re Bernie Sanders.”
The revival of “Roseanne” has been a big hit with many audience members, but has also raised eyebrows over the main character’s pro-Trump beliefs.
