Asked again whether her personal politics influenced the writing of the fictional character, she doubled down: "My show is a realistic portrayal of America and working class people. There was a lot of thought in it".
The main character's political views will mirror those of Barr herself, who so frequently offers blunt, pro-Trump opinions on Twitter that many users have called for a boycott of the reboot with the hashtag #BoycottRoseanne.
The first press panel for the ROSEANNE revival went about as well as one could have expected, given star and executive producer Roseanne Barr's famous support of President Trump. Here's what she had to say. I'm not a Trump apologist. There are a lot of things he's said and done that I don't agree with, just like there are a lot of things Hillary Clinton has said and done that you don't agree with. "Nobody is brainwashed into agreeing with 100 percent of what anybody says". "I was anxious that people wouldn't want to touch [Roseanne], that everybody was proud of it and wanted to leave it alone and not risk anything", Gilbert said. "I think that's a great way to fight racism is that everybody has a job".
Barr then drifted into conspiracy town, saying she couldn't vote for Clinton because of Haiti, citing the debunked claim that the Clintons raised hundreds of millions of dollars for a hospital in the country that was never built.
"I think it's time to close ranks, and I would really like to see an end to hate-triotism in this country".

Courtney's mother said she received a odd text from her phone that said "hello the owner of this phone Courtney. The Texas sports reporter who went missing over the weekend had been found alive near a Houston-area mall.
And while Roseanne is personally a Trump supporter, she has chosen to also make her TV alter-ego a Donald fan - for one VERY particular reason.
"I do love Oprah". "Of course, I love Oprah like everybody else".
"I think I'd be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump", she said.
One the show's writers attempted to speak, but Barr interrupted by saying, "Speaking of racism, I'm just going to say it". And yes, she did use the word "hatriotism, according to Entertainment Weekly's report".
The award-winning 1990s sitcom is returning to the ABC network in March, and actress Roseanne Barr says her choice to depict her working-class character as pro-Trump is "realistic".
