"It was working-class people who elected Trump, and that was very real and needed to be discussed," she continued, adding that she herself is "not a Trump apologist" and believes "there are a lot of things he has said and done that I don't agree with."
She went on to call Trump the "lesser of two evils" when it came to the candidates and said, "The large part of why I could not vote for Hillary Clinton was because of Haiti."
The show's executive producer Bruce Helford pointed out that Dan (John Goodman) "didn't necessarily" vote for 45 too, adding "I don't think he voted." He also noted Jackie (Laurie Metcalf) was pro-Hillary Clinton. Expect a family feud between Roseanne and Jackie in the first episode.
Sara Gilbert added that she saw the show as "a great opportunity to have a family divided in politics, but still full of love."
