Much of the first two episodes revolves around a family feud between Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) and her sister Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) over politics. Barr portrays a small-town, middle class, Trump supporter while Metcalf’s character is a left-wing liberal. The premier was broadcasted to over 18 million viewers, and one of them, was President Donald Trump.
A White House official told HFN on Thursday that POTUS called Roseanne to congratulate her on the series premier and Barr confirmed this. “It was pretty exciting, I’ll tell you that, they said, ‘Hold please for the President of the United States of America’ and that was about the most exciting thing ever and it was very sweet of him to congratulate us,” Barr said. Although that may have been “very sweet of him” to congratulate Barr, there is growing concern about the amount of television Trump watches and what his priorities are as President.
A top White House Aid told Hashtag Fake News that a National Security meeting was scheduled Tuesday evening at the last-minute due to growing concerns of possible security threats from North Korea. Our source told us that around 7:30pm top Pentagon officials arrived at the White House to meet with Trump, but he sent them away. When asked why, President Trump told the Aid, “Tell them I’m busy. Hey look, I’ve waited 20 years for a Roseanne reboot and I’m not missing it for anyone’s bull shit.” The Aid also provided HFN with a picture that was taken of President Trump watching Roseanne while the National Security Meeting went on without him.
