She’s not with her! Roseanne Barr voiced her support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump while throwing shade at the presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, published on Tuesday, June 7.
“I think we would be so lucky if Trump won,” the Roseanne alum, 63, told THR. “Because then it wouldn't be Hillary."
Asked why she isn’t a fan of Clinton, 68, Barr explained, "Well, she hangs out with [President] Bush. Do you need more than that? She's friends with everybody that gives her any goddamned money. The fact is, you don't get to be the nominee without taking a lot of dirty money. You might be the best f–kin' person on earth, but if you're hanging out with criminals who do bad things, that matters a lot."
Barr then went on to explain that she favors Trump, 69, over the former first lady because she believes that the billionaire businessman has been able to pay for the entirety of his campaign without the help of others. The ex–Celebrity Apprentice host became the presumptive GOP nominee in May, over candidates including Ted Cruz and Carly Fiorina.
"I like Trump because he financed his own [campaign]. That's the only way he could've gotten that nomination,” the Roseanne’s Nuts star continued. “Because nobody wants a president who isn't from Yale and Harvard and in the club.”
Although Barr may not be a fan of Clinton, President Barack Obama certainly is. On Thursday, June 9, he formally endorsed the former secretary of state in a three-minute video message.
“I want to congratulate Hillary Clinton on making history as the presumptive Democratic nominee for president of the United States,” Obama, 54, said. “I know how hard this job can be, that’s why I know Hillary will be so good at it. In fact, I don’t think there’s ever been someone so qualified to hold this office.”
Not long after Obama released his glowing statements about Clinton, Trump slammed the two on Twitter by writing, “Obama just endorsed Crooked Hillary. He wants four more years of Obama — but nobody else does!”
Completely unbothered by Trump's social media trolling, Clinton simply told him, “Delete your account,” to which the agitated real estate mogul responded, "How long did it take your staff of 823 people to think that up–and where are your 33,000 emails that you deleted?"
