Roseanne Barr who is a known and outspoken supporter, voter, and maybe even friend of President Trump, threw Twitter into a frenzy as she declared Donald Trump as being the first female leader of the United States of America.
In a since-deleted tweet posted on Thursday, the comedian began the one-minute clip by letting her audience know she didn’t care about the controversy she might cause with her surprise announcement.
“You know what I think — discuss amongst yourselves if you don’t agree — you don’t really have to burn me at the stake for not agreeing with me — but let me just throw out one idea,” the 67-year-old actress began as she held what appeared to be a thin cigar.
“And I hope that the hungry dogs in the street have enough meat as to not come after me for thinking and speaking. I’m tired of it,” she continued.
Barr then goes on to say that no one is going to listen to her upcoming idea anyway, which she prefers, adding, “I’m tired of being monitored and corrected and s–t, ya know, f–k it. I’ll say what I’m gonna say.”
“Trump — hear me when I say this — Trump is, in my opinion, the first woman president of the United States.”
In 2018, she admitted she voted for Trump and subsequently spoke with him on the phone when he wanted to congratulate her on the huge success of her “Roseanne” sitcom reboot.
After the reboot was cancelled for Barr comparing former Barack Obama aide Valerie Jarrett to a “Planet of the Apes” character, which ABC deemed racist, the comedian blamed the move on her support of Trump.
“My show was canceled before even one advertiser pulled out and I was labeled a racist,” she said in a July 2018 video. “Why, you ask? Well, the answer is simple. It’s because I voted for Donald Trump and that is not allowed in Hollywood.”
