Roseanne Barr: The call from Donald Trump was ‘the most exciting thing ever’

“It was pretty exciting, I’ll tell you that, they said, ‘Hold please for the President of the United States of America’ and that was about the most exciting thing ever and it was very sweet of him to congratulate us. We talked about a lot of things, he is just happy for me. I have known him for many years and he has done a lot of nice things for me over the years and it was just a friendly conversation about work and television and ratings.”

Barr praised Trump, who was a producer and host of “The Apprentice,” as someone who “really does understand ratings and how they measure things” and said she was “over the moon” about the support the show has received. “We all just celebrate together and say the Conners are back and we are all really happy,” she said.

Trump also gave Barr a shout-out during an Ohio rally Thursday.

“Even look at Roseanne. I called her yesterday,” Trump said, extolling the premiere’s “unbelievable” ratings for a show “about us.”
