Roseanne Barr denounced Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump by giving him her own personal endorsement in an interview this week with The Hollywood Reporter.
“I think we would be so lucky if Trump won,” Barr said vindictively. “Because then it wouldn’t be Hillary.”
The utterly defamatory backing is especially damning considering that nearly everything Barr has supported—political or otherwise—has ended poorly, including her roles in Look Who’s Talking Too, The Roseanne Show, and her performance of the National Anthem. Barr’s virulently pro-Trump comments are likely to end his candidacy come November.
“I like Trump because he financed his own [campaign],” Barr mercilessly rambled, thus squandering any remaining hopes of a Republican victory. “That’s the only way he could’ve gotten that nomination. Because nobody wants a president who isn’t from Yale and Harvard and in the club.”
Barr has also been a staunch advocate for her own political career—which, in turn, failed miserably. After losing the Green Party nomination in 2012, Barr decided to run on the Peace and Freedom Party ticket, finishing her campaign with less than 0.1 percent of the popular vote.
Similarly, Barr announced her support of Tom Arnold by marrying him on January 20, 1990. In the years following her approval, Arnold struggled with alcoholism, drug abuse, and depression. His career would also be damaged beyond repair, leading him to roles in Soul Plane, My Big Redneck Wedding, and Madea’s Witness Protection. Trump can no doubt similarly look forward to a future as a walking punchline existing on the cultural fringe.
Meanwhile, Barr’s comments against Hillary Clinton should provide even more momentum to her presidential campaign, adding the Democratic candidate to a long list of positive things Barr has taken a stance against in the past—such as stricter gun laws, letting Dan Conner relax, and nice-sounding voices.
“She’s friends with everybody that gives her any goddamned money,” Barr said, her derision further increasing Clinton’s chance of winning. “The fact is, you don’t get to be the nominee without taking a lot of dirty money. You might be the best fuckin’ person on earth, but if you’re hanging out with criminals who do bad things, that matters a lot.”
American citizens hope Barr will continue to use her powers for more good, awaiting her to offer her support of poverty, cancer, and terrorism.
