Roseanne Barr advised Trump-hating comedian Jimmy Kimmel to “zip that f***en lip” unless he’s actively rooting for the United States to fail.
Barr made the remarks while promoting the upcoming reboot of “Roseanne,” the hit TV series she starred in from 1988 to 1997.
During her interview, leftist comedian Kimmel reminded Roseanne that she was once a liberal supporter of Hillary Clinton.
Barr — part of an underreported group of Americans who became Trump supporters thanks to Hillary — said she’s still the same person, but today’s “liberals” have become so radical and so far-left they turned her off.
“I’m still the same. You all moved,” Barr said. “You all went so f**ken far out! You lost everything. I mean, seriously.”
Kimmel conceded: “You’re probably right, by the way.”
Barr explained: “Seriously, a lot of your audience, including me, I just want to say this Jimmy: A lot of us — no matter who we voted for — don’t want to see our president fail. You want Pence for the friggin president? Well then, zip that f***en lip!”
Liberals think if they impeach Trump, somehow Hillary or some Democrat would automatically become president. Earth to moonbats: That’s not how the line of succession works. VP Mike Pence is next in line, followed by Paul Ryan.
Roseanne was also reiterating a point repeatedly made by Donald Trump Jr., who said liberals would rather see the country suffer than succeed under President Trump.
“It’s sad that the left today would rather see America suffer and fail than to see it succeed with Donald Trump at the helm,” Don Jr. tweeted.

As I said months ago, last night democrats proved that they would rather see America fail, than to succeed under President Trump.

All you need to know about the Democrats summed up in one simple video. I said it last year but this proves it… Democrats would rather see America fail than for it to succeed under President @realdonaldtrump #sotu pic.twitter.com/tEepHUYyYL

Barr continued: “It’s up to us [the American people] to make this government work. No matter who is president, it’s up to us to do our job as citizens, and if we don’t like something, let them know you don’t like. You got another election in two years. Get out there and vote. Change it [if you don’t like things as they are instead of whining].”
While Roseanne’s co-star, John Goodman (who played her TV husband Dan Conner) remained fairly quiet during the political discussion, he took a dig at Hillary’s dismal foreign policy:
Roseanne: “I had some disagreement with her foreign policy.”
Goodman: “If she had one.”
Roseanne Barr is one of the few Hollywood celebrities who are vocal in their support of President Trump. While it may have cost her some fans, she doesn’t care.
Earlier this month, Barr live-tweeted during the Oscars (which Jimmy Kimmel hosted) for the millions of Americans who boycotted the Trump-bashing awards show.
Trump supporters got the last laugh, as the Oscars ratings cratered 16% from the previous year, and were the lowest-rated in the history of the Academy Awards.
“Roseanne” was the No. 1 show on television from 1989 to 1990. It returns for its 10th season on March 27 with its entire original cast.
