Thursday on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” Roseanne Barr appeared as a guest to discuss her amazingly high TV ratings for the debut reboot episode of hit 90s sitcom, Roseanne. As a result of those high ratings, Roseanne received a phone call early Thursday from none other than our President, Donald Trump.
“I sure am grateful to people for watching and liking it,” Roseanne said to “GMA” co-host George Stephanopoulos. “It’s very exciting.”
Barr spoke about her phone conversation from Trump, which she described as a “private conversation” that touched on ratings, which are an interest of both she and Trump.
“It was pretty exciting — I’ll tell you that much,” she replied. “They said, ‘Hold please for the president of the United States of America.’ It was the most exciting thing ever, and that was very sweet of him to congratulate us.”
“We just kind of had a private conversation,” Barr said. “We talked about a lot of things. He is happy for me, and I’ve known him for many years, and he’s done a lot of nice things for me over the years. It was just a friendly conversation about working, and you know, television and ratings. He really understands ratings and how they measure things and that has kind of been an interest of mine for a long time.”
It’s incredible how ABC will all of a sudden show something positive about President Trump when it involves a show that airs on their network, isn’t it? God forbid Roseanne was on FOX, we would have been watching George and the puppets on Good Morning America poking fun at Roseanne this morning.
