Trump Personally Phoned Roseanne Barr About Her Ratings

The Trump-supporting actress plays a Trump supporter on the "Roseanne" reboot.

Tuesday’s premiere of the rebooted “Roseanne” TV series was a ratings hit.

And President Donald Trump reportedly couldn’t wait to congratulate the show’s star Roseanne Barr on its runaway success.

Trump personally phoned  Barr Wednesday to salute the ABC sitcom hitting 18.2 million viewers, according to The New York Times.

Trump also reportedly thanked Barr, who plays Trump-supporter Roseanne Conner in the show, for her real-life support.

Barr has said she voted for Trump in the 2016 presidential election, and last week warned late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel to “zip that fucking lip” about the president, lest Vice President Mike Pence take over.
