Roseanne Barr: ‘I Think I’d Be A Better President Than Oprah And Trump’

NBCUniversal's 2014 Summer Press Day

We’ve reached a point in history where literally anyone can be president. And although that’s terrifying on its own when considering the average IQ of Americans, now we have celebrities battling it out verbally over who could do the best job dictating our lives.

Speculation over a potential 2020 run for Oprah Winfrey began after she gave a speech about sexual abuse at the Golden Globes in which she paid homage to victims and also to members of the press. As talk continues to swirl around the former talk-show host’s potential political future, Roseanne Barr joined the melee.

“Actually, I think I’d be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump. And I did run in 2012,” Barr said while speaking on a panel during a media tour for the Television Critics Association according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Barr, who is a supporter of President Trump, reportedly also said she loves Winfrey “like everybody else.”

“I do love Oprah. Of course, I love Oprah, like everybody else,” Barr said, according to the news outlet. “But you know what? I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and, you know, try something different.”

She also said that politics would play a main role in her new sitcom. She explained why it was important to make her alter-ego a Trump supporter — something viewers will learn when Roseanne premieres on March 27 on ABC. Though Barr has made it clear on her personal Twitter feed that she supports the President, Barr said she felt like it was authentic if Roseanne and her husband Dan did, too.

“I said it, and I’ll say again, my show has always been … I’ve always attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and of working-class people,” Barr told reporters Monday in Pasadena. “And 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 especially about polarization in the family and actually hating people for the way they voted, which I feel like is not American. … There was a lot of thought in it.”

One thing’s for certain: this next election cycle could be incredibly humorous.
