Trump Calls Roseanne Barr to Congratulate Her on the “Roseanne” Revival

ABC’s Roseanne revival drew a grand total of 18.2 million same-day viewers with its premiere, which was apparently enough to catch the eye of the ratings-obsessed president.

Per the New York Times, Donald Trump called up Roseanne Barr, a Trump supporter like her character Roseanne Conner (though her family members in the show disagree with her politics), to congratulate her on the revival and thank her for her support.

The Times, citing an insider, claims that Trump “was enthralled by the ‘huge’ ratings” the show received, so his focus on matters of size remains as firm as ever.
