Roseanne Barr: ABC Fired Me Because I Support Trump

From an interview with Britain’s Daily Mail:

After a tumultuous year and a half, which saw Roseanne Barr fired from her own successful sitcom revival, the star is stepping back on stage in a new comeback comedy tour. She feels like there is more to her departure from ABC than just the shocking social media post and wonders if there was some sort of conspiracy at play.

“It was a perfect storm. That’s what I think, just the perfect storm at the perfect time. Kind of a little bit too perfect. Sometimes I think, ‘Was this orchestrated? The whole thing?'” Barr reckons that her continued support of President Donald Trump played into ABC’s decision to boot her.

“All of Hollywood, they just hate him and they hate those of us who like him. There is no way around it. So, yeah, I think they took me off because I liked him and I like him because I’m a Jew and he likes Israel,” Barr said matter-of-factly.

In the past, Barr has also blamed costar Sara Gilbert and Michelle Obama for getting her fired.

She last appeared on JMG when she declared, “I’m queer. I put the Q in LGBTQ.”
