Two comediennes made headlines today, but are on opposite sides of the political spectrum. Earlier, Kathy Griffin took back her apology for posting a picture of herself holding a bloody Donald Trump head, and Roseanne Barr had some choice words for those who dislike her support of the sitting president.
The one thing both women have in common is that they really don’t care what others think about their support or lack thereof in Griffin’s case, of Donald Trump.
Roseanne Barr has made it clear that she does not care about the backlash she has received for her support of President Trump, according to Fox News. On Monday night, the ABC sitcom star sat down with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, and the host asked about her political views, which have caused some controversy for the popular TV reboot. “Oh yeah, people are mad about that. But you know, I don’t give a f—,” Barr told Fallon.
Similarly, Kathy Griffin told the ladies hosting The View “F– him,” when referring to Trump.
“Yeah, I take the apology back,” she told the hosts of The View. “F— him. And Don Jr. and Eric, or as I call them Eddie Munster and Date Rape. I’m not holding back on this family. This president is different and I have been through the mill and so now I’m back on the road. I sold out Carnegie Hall in less than 24 hours.”
“The Conners aren’t Trump supporters. Roseanne’s character is a Trump supporter — she’s the only one — and we never say his name, actually, in the show,” actress Sara Gilbert told Andy Cohen.
The actress added, “…The show is not about politics. It’s not about anyone’s position or a policy, it’s really about what happens to a family when there’s a political divide, which is something that I think the entire country can relate to and something we need to talk about. So, with our show, it’s never about ‘doing an issue’ or ‘doing politics,’ it’s ‘how do these things affect a family unit?’”
And despite receiving some backlash, “Roseanne” has managed to break rating records, drawing in a staggering 27.3 million viewers for the show’s premiere on March 2 earlier this year.
