    Trump calls Barr to congratulate her on her ratings but doesn't call the family of fallen Soldiers and Marines, Airmen and Sailors.

    Republican priorities.

    I have a sneaking suspicion that Roseanne is gaming the gullible American TV audience like it's never been gamed before. She's already stated that her biggest reasons for supporting Mr. Trump is as a buffer to keep Mike Pence at bay. Solid actors and American's like Laurie Metcalf and John Goodman might be actors at heart, but they are also very good people and wouldn't be a part of something that would be a party to saying to America that President Trump is someone we should respect and admire. I wouldn't be surprised to see a storyline that had Roseanne figuring out that she'd sold her soul. That's speculative, but I think that something like that is in the cards. Roseanne Barr is no dummy.

    Roseanne Barr, East High class of '71, along with Martha Raddatz.

    Meanwhile, Karl Rove was attending Olympus.

    (And they say inversions don't influence societal behavior.)

    In 2012, Roseanne was the presidential candidate for the Peace and Justice Party. Somehow, I doubt she's a conservative.

    Her lovefest with Trump appears to be entertainer-to-entertainer.

    Roseanne likes Trump? Sounds about right.

    @worf: "Or a president who gave billions to the Muslim Brotherhood."


    Even the Russians are done trying to push that one.

    Perhaps a president who gave nuclear technology and billions of dollars to North Korea be considered someone who would cheated on the country.

    Or a president who gave billions to the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Who about the ones who set up our multibillion dollar trade deficit deals?

    And there's much more!

    Right, Baccus, When Donald hugs the U.S. Flag, you know he really loves this country.

    Just like when he hugs Melania.

    Wait a second...he'd never cheat on this country, would he?

    Donald Trump hugging the U.S. Flag and Roseanne Barr singing the national Anthem.

    There seem to be a commonality in their love for the country.

    What this article fails to mention is that the numbers on the coasts were far lower.

    Roseann succeeded by delivering huge numbers in markets like Tulsa, OK.

    Sort of like missing the point of the election itself. There is a whole country out there that isn't New York and LA.
