Roseanne Barr thinks she’d be a better president than Oprah, Trump

Roseanne Barr thinks she has a better shot at the presidency this time.

The 65-year-old actress, who placed sixth in the 2012 presidential race as the nominee for the Peace and Freedom Party, teased the possibility of another try, especially in light of calls for Oprah Winfrey to run after her empowering Golden Globes speech Sunday night.

“I do love Oprah. Of course, I love Oprah like everybody else. But you know what? I think it was time for us as a country to shake things up and, you know, try something different,” Barr said at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour Monday.

“Actually, I think I’d be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump.”

Barr, an outspoken supporter of President Trump, will have similar political leanings in the rebooted “Roseanne.”

Asked if the President is racist, the actress responded that such a designation is “your opinion.”

“He says a lot of crazy s — t,” she said at the TCA panel.

“I’m not a Trump apologist, but there are a lot of things he has said and done that I don’t agree with, like there’s probably a lot of things Hillary Clinton has done and said that you don’t agree with, and so nobody is brainwashed into agreeing with 100 percent of what anybody says, let alone a politician or a candidate.”
