Barr says: “I’ve always tried to have [the show] be a true reflection of the society we live in. I feel like half the people voted for Trump and half didn’t, so it’s just realistic […], in fact, it was working-class people who elected Trump, so I felt like that was very real and something that needed to be discussed and especially about polarization in the family and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American.”
While on the topic of politics, the actress was also asked about the possible prospect of mogul Oprah Winfrey running for president following her moving Golden Globes speech last Sunday. Barr says: “I do love Oprah. Of course, I love Oprah like everybody else. But you know what? I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up”

In response to comic’s comments on shaking things up, the interviewer jokingly suggested Susan Sarandon for president, which Roseanne quickly responded: “Actually, I think I’d be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump. And I did run in 2012,” she said.
