Iconic comedian and Trump-supporter Roseanne Barr didn’t hold back when discussing politics during a late-night television interview; telling liberal host Jimmy Kimmel that he went so “f***ing far left” he lost everybody and should “zip that f***ing lip.”
Barr appeared alongside actor John Goodman while promoting their upcoming revival of television’s “Roseanne,” getting into a full-blown debate with Kimmel over Hillary Clinton, liberals, Donald Trump, and Mike Pence.
“You are a very liberal, socially liberal person in general,” started Kimmel.
“I’m still the same, you all moved. You all went so f***ing far out you lost everybody,” she interrupted. “Seriously, a lot of your audience -including me- A lot of us, no matter who we voted for, we don’t want to see our president fail.”
“So zip that “f***ing lip,” she added.

ROSEANNE UNLEASHED: The Comedian TRASHES CLINTON, Says US ‘Lucky’ Trump is President
Comedian Roseanne Barr raised eyebrows this week when she suddenly slammed former presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, saying the doomed nominee neglected American workers and was only concerned with “Syrian airspace,” adding the country was “lucky” Donald Trump went on to win the White House.
In a recently published clip promoting her upcoming sitcom, the iconic comic unloaded on the former Secretary of State, saying “maybe” Americans cared about “Syrian airspace” but she certainly didn’t.
“He talked about jobs. That’s what you need to do if you want working people to vote for you. Not Syrian airspace,” Barr said. “I don’t think Hillary talked about jobs much. She was always just talking about Syrian airspace. Do you think people in America care? Maybe they do, I didn’t, though.”
“It’s great for comedy. We’re lucky to have him as a President, it’s great for comedy,” she added.

LAST MAN STANDING: Tim Allen Says Hit Show Was Too 'Dangerous' for ABC
Television funny-man Tim Allen lashed-out at left-leaning ABC executives during a fiery interview Tuesday, saying the network shut-down his hit sitcom simply because it featured “likeable, conservative characters” the network deemed “dangerous.”
The sitcom star was speaking with fellow comedian Norm McDonald when he weighed-in on the network’s decision to cancel his hit show, “Last Man Standing” despite stellar ratings and critical reviews.
“You couldn’t have handled this worse,” said Allen. “It was handled very badly.”
“Second biggest show, [The network] hadn’t won a Friday night in 15 years,” he said. “They put us out to pasture on Friday and we won Friday. Big night for us, big night for them. I would have put Roseanne after us […] Use us just to launch shows, if nothing else,” said the comedian.
“I have no idea why they did what they did,” he added. “There’s nothing more dangerous to me, especially in this climate, then a funny, likeable conservative. The guy was a likeable guy, he really was a principled guy about work and ethics. I think there’s nothing more dangerous right now than a likeable conservative.”
