President Trump called Roseanne Barr Wednesday to congratulate her on the revival of her “Roseanne” series, which was a huge ratings success, according to a report.
Trump wanted to personally reach out to Barr, after a reboot of its iconic ABC sitcom drew 18.2 million viewers in its debut on Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the New York Times.
A source said the president was under the impression of the “big” ratings, “Roseanne”, which features Barr plays her alter ego, Roseanne Conner – a Trump supporter, as the actress is in real life.
The policy was mentioned briefly in Tuesday’s episode in a scene with actress Laurie Metcalf, a real-life HIllary Clinton supporter to play a “Nasty Woman” Aunt Jackie.
