Roseanne Barr has no regrets about voting for Donald Trump -- and she does not care if viewers are bothered by her support of the anti-LGBT president.
On a Monday appearance on The Tonight Show, the comedian discussed the backlash to her political views, which have become a contentious point since Roseanne was revived by ABC and became a major ratings success. Her character, Roseanne Conner, is also a Trump supporter in the reboot.
"With a big hit come people that aren't so happy as well, if you say that you're a supporter of Donald Trump," said host Jimmy Fallon.
"Oh, yeah, people are mad about that," Barr said. "But, you know, I don't give a fuck."
"Everybody had to choose for themselves, according to their own conscience, who they thought was the lesser of two evils," said Barr, referring to the 2016 presidential election between Trump and Hillary Clinton. "Everybody chose that, so I'm not gonna put anybody down who didn't vote like me."
"This is America. It's a free country. And when you weigh it all together, I just felt like we needed a whole new thing. All the way -- bottom to top," she said.
In a March interview with The New York Times, Barr, in spite of all contrary evidence, even defended Trump's record on LGBT issues. "He doesn't oppose same-sex marriage," she said, pushing back on the interviewer. "He has said it several times, you know, that he's not homophobic at all," she added.
