Roseanne Barr and John Goodman were on Jimmy Kimmel last night, and with Roseanne, the topic of Trump is bound to come up. In fact, it dominated the entire discussion (it’s also the topic of the first show back, after 20 years). And Jimmy, for his part, playfully suggests repeatedly that Roseanne is a crazy person for supporting Trump and calling Hillary a murderer.
But the best thing about the clip is watching John Goodman, who is not a Trump supporter (in fact, he once suggested that instead of The Wall, Trump supporters build a Dome and trap themselves inside of it). But Goodman has a show to promote, and I would assume that he has an affectionate working relationship with Roseanne, despite their clear political differences.
But it’s also clear from the way he mostly silently reacts to much of what Roseanne is saying that he also thinks her politics are crazy.
In other news, yes: I will be watching Roseanne, and I’ll probably talk about it here, and you guys will probably give me a lot of shit for it. That’s OK. There were no shows like this when I was growing up — shows that reflected some of the reality in which I lived. My relationship with Roseanne now is a lot like the one I have with my family: I talk to them very little, and I don’t agree with them at all, but they’re still my family, you know? Basically, in this scenario, I’m John Goodman sitting on the couch next to Roseanne Barr.
