Roseanne Barr: 'I Think Trump's Stealing My Act'

In this image released by ABC Roseanne Barr and John Goodman appear in a scene from the reboot of

Barr made headlines Thursday after getting into a heated debate with Jimmy Kimmel as she and Goodman visited his late night show.

The stars of the Roseanne revival caught up with ET's Nischelle Turner at the TV reboot's premiere in Los Angeles on Friday where they explained how they aren't shying away from controversy on the show. Not only did the consistently poor and down-on-their-luck Conner clan win the lottery, changing their lines forever, but patriarch Dan (John Goodman) also cheated on matriarch Roseanne (Roseanne Barr).

Sara Gilbert is on the show as Darlene Conner.

"I'm still the same, you all moved", she said.

But Kimmel was keen to quiz Barr on why she voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

"Of course", Barr told the site during a fan event. "It's a place to go where you can see people with similar problems and just trying to live through it with some grace and love", said John Goodman, who played husband Dan Conner on the show.

But, Shurmur said, he thinks Webb gained something valuable just being on an National Football League roster a year ago . It is time for cooler heads to prevail here and for Dave Gettleman to get a contract offer on the table.

"The first episode deals with a divide in the family over politics, but we don't really deal with politics after the first episode", said Gilbert.

"No, I kept it and I'm not bringing it back".

Oscar nominee Laurie Metcalf, who is reprising her role as Aunt Jackie, agreed that stepping back on the set was like a time warp.

Kimmel told Roseanne he was "shocked" over Roseanne's previously-stated support of the commander-in-chief, as he knew her as 'a very socially liberal person in general'.

"You want Pence? You want Pence for the freakin' president?"

"One of my Twitter followers who's a big fan of the show, she crocheted this for me", Barr shared, adding that it means the world to her.
