A lot has changed in the two decades since Roseanne went off the air in 1997. So when the highly anticipated reboot kicked off on ABC on Tuesday, March 27, much of the original cast returned with plenty of new things to talk about, most notably the current political climate.
Just a few minutes into the premiere, Roseanne Conner (Roseanne Barr) declared her support for President Donald Trump, all without even saying his name. Viewers then learned that Roseanne and her sister Jackie Harris (Laurie Metcalf) were in a feud over the latter’s respect for Hillary Clinton, Trump’s Democratic opponent in the 2016 presidential election. However, Jackie later admitted that she “choked” and voted for Green Party nominee Jill Stein because of Roseanne’s vocal disapproval of Clinton.
