During a Monday panel previewing ABC’s revival of the “Roseanne” show at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour, Roseanne Barr contended that she would be a “better president than Oprah.”

When asked by a reporter whether she would vote for Oprah Winfrey should Winfrey launch a presidential bid in 2020, Barr said, “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,” she said, referring to her support of President Donald Trump.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, another member of the media asked Barr if she would support actress Susan Sarandon for president.

“Actually,” Barr replied, “I think I’d be a better president than Oprah and Susan Sarandon, probably even President Trump. And I did run in 2012,” she said.

Barr was also asked about her and John Goodman’s leading characters being portrayed as Trump supporters in the remake of “Roseanne.”

“In the ‘Roseanne’ show, I’ve always tried to have it be a true reflection of the society we live in. I feel like half the people voted for Trump and half didn’t, so it’s just realistic,” she said, noting that she has made an effort to realistically portray the American working class. “And, in fact, it was working-class people who elected Trump, so I felt like that was very real and something that needed to be discussed and especially about polarization in the family and people actually hating other people for the way they voted, which I feel is not American.”
