In case you hadn’t heard, Roseanne is back and, so far, it’s extremely popular. Naturally, with the protagonist being pro-Trump and all, leftists aren’t crazy about the revival. No, I mean it, they really hate it. In fact, MSNBC dedicated almost fifteen minutes to a full-on Roseanne hate-fest. They even brought Rob “Meathead” Reiner along for the ride:
In a discussion on April 1 over the new ABC reboot ofRoseanne, three guests – including actor and director Rob Reiner – and host Joy Reid levied harsh judgment of the show. The actor and director more commonly known as “Meathead” decided that the problem with Roseanne Barr, a real-life Trump supporter, is that she and her character are too similar.
Says the hippie leftist douchemeister most famous for playing a hippie leftist douchemeister on the tube.
At the beginning, Reid introduced Roseanne to the panel with the comment, “I didn’t find [the show] all that funny necessarily.” And she ended the segment with a biting statement about Roseanne Barr: “She will be a very difficult person to keep under wraps and to silence. They’ll have a challenge on their hands apparently for two seasons.”
So, according to Joy, because Roseanne Barr and her TV counterpart voted for the “other guy,” their popularity is problematic and in good need of a silencing. If not, networks might think about reviving and creating other shows with non-leftist protagonists. Oops, too late!
MSNBC and Meathead were attacking the show from every angle. I guess it’s not enough to change the channel because it’s not their cup of fair trade, organic tea. No, it must suffer a fiery demise for the crime of being a successful semi-non-leftist venture. A venture which isn’t even close to being a conservative’s wet dream, by the way.
If you didn’t know any better, you’d think Rob Reiner and Joy Reid were deconstructing a videographic political manifesto bankrolled by the RNC. Instead of a silly sitcom. These leftists don’t want to live in a world where anyone would dare to think differently. Yet, we’re the ones who are supposedly “intolerant” and “closed-minded.”
Give me a break.
