Trump Congratulates Roseanne in Personal Phone Call

Pro-Trump ‘Roseanne’ Reboot Thanks God for Making America Great Again			ABC		by Jerome Hudson28 Mar 20180		28 Mar 2018		28 Mar 2018

After posting gangbuster ratings for the reboot of her late 20th-century sitcom, Roseanne Barr received a call from President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump phoned Roseanne Barr to congratulate her on those massive premiere ratings.

Roseanne Barr's character on the show is a bold Trump supporter, as is the star in real life.

The comedy stars Barr as the eponymous blue-collar matriarch of the Conner clan, whose foil is sister Jackie, played by multiple Emmy victor Laurie Metcalf and depicted as a Hillary Clinton supporter, who ultimately voted for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Roseanne spoke with Good Morning America and spoke about their conversation.

The show returned to ABC more than two decades after it wrapped in May 1997.

The show performed best in states that Trump easily won in 2016, while Americans in the left-leaning coastal states hardly tuned in at all. Conner's sister Jackie Harris, however, supported Hillary.

The revival premiered two episodes back to back on ABC Tuesday night.

The New York Times reported that the president called Barr to congratulate her on the success of her show and to thank her for her support.

It's no wonder Trump is so excited about Roseanne's popularity.

"Well it was pretty exciting, I'll tell you that much", Barr told George Stephanopoulos.

During a Q&A session with television critics earlier this year, Barr said, "It was working-class people who elected Trump".

ABC News chief George Stephanopoulos noted Trump sure is interested in TV ratings and Barr agreed. "I think that's what's exciting about our country right now", she added. We can really get our hands dirty and put our big collective shoulders to the wheel and change and fix things.

"The idea that people can agree to disagree is kinda missing from everything", she said.

"I just wanted to have that dialogue about families torn apart by the election and their political differences of opinion and how we handle it".
