Comedian Roseanne Barr is a Trump supporter.

The comedian and actress Roseanne Barr has fantasized about being the Prime Minister of Israel . This comes after she wanted to be the President of the United States in March. The 65-year-old comedian told an Israeli news company that among many other dreams, one is about living in Israel after she retires. Barr wants to purchase a farm in the country and if possible, bring her family.

Barr's career right now is going great. President Donald Trump himself called Roseanne to congratulate her on the reboot of the Roseanne sitcom which made her a household name. The new production has beat all expectations garnering approximately 18.2 million viewers tuning in. Even the ratings were 10 percent higher than they were during the series finale of the original series broadcast in 1997. The audience of the reboot will enjoy Barr fighting Jackie, portrayed by Laurie Metcalf, another veteran actor, over President Trump. She expressed happiness about Trump’s call, saying that like her, Trump is also into ratings. The actor had thanked him for deciding to move the Embassy of the United States from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. In her opinion, it is the first step towards a peaceful world.

Roseanne Barr herself had made a U-turn when it came to her views about the Jewish state. She was in the past fiercely critical of Israel. Now she wants to relocate to Isreal. When asked about it, the comedian answered that she opposed Israel as she was ignorant about the true state of affairs. She said that she wanted to be moral, but found she was totally wrong. Her blogs and Twitter feeds reveal her present love for Israel. She frequently rails against anti-Zionists and against those who support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The BDS is an anti-Israeli organization.

When it comes to the Roseanne sitcom, Barr said it was vital to show that the Conner family deals with same issues faced by real American families. She underwent political evolution from the time she was with the Green Party and termed Israel a total “Nazi state” to a present-day Zionist who could even relocate to Israel. The level of transformation was so much that the comedian even termed herself as “rabbi.”

Barr supports Trump wholeheartedly but did not explain why she supports him.
