“Pigs are flying and Hell just froze over,” said one commenter.
“You could knock me over with a feather!” said another. “I thought she was one that would leave the country if Trump were elected.”
In a Q&A that noted her documentary “Roseanne For President,” Barr was asked: Will Trump act in people’s interest?
Barr replied: “To me, he’s saying that the order of law matters. When a president can just pass laws all on his own, that is a little bit different than what America was supposed to be about. And Trump is saying people will have to be vetted, we’ll have to have legal immigration. It’s all a scam. I mean, illegal immigration. When people come here and they get a lot of benefits that our own veterans don’t get. What’s up with that?”
Later, she said: “I think we would be so lucky if Trump won. Because then it wouldn’t be Hillary.”
Conservatives rushed to praise her. Others were stunned.
Thank goodness Roseanne Barr is supporting Trump. I was just waiting to see who she would go for.

My celebrity claim to fame on twitter is being blocked by Roseanne Barr. And not even 4 a good reason. She as thin-skinned as Trump.
