Roseanne Barr says Americans shouldn’t rely on the president, because it’s “up to the people” to make the government work.
“Here’s my two cents, dammit, it’s up to us to make this government work, no matter who’s president,” the “Roseanne” star told host Jimmy Kimmel on a Thursday appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

“It’s up to us to do our jobs as citizens,” continued the 65-year-old comedian — who made a 2012 White House bid as the Peace and Freedom Party’s nominee. “If we don’t like something, you know, let them know you don’t like it and then you’ve got another election in two years, get out there and vote.”
“Change it if you don’t like it,” Barr added.
On her rebooted ABC sitcom, Barr plays a grandmother who voted for President Trump, which causes some political clashes with her family. In real life, Barr has voiced support for Trump as well, saying ahead of the 2016 election, “I think we would be so lucky if Trump won.”
“I’m shocked because you were a very liberal, socially liberal person in general,” Kimmel told Barr during her late-night sitdown.
“I’m still the same, you all moved. You all went so f—ing far out you lost everybody,” Barr exclaimed.
“A lot of us, you know, no matter who we voted for, we don’t want to see our president fail,” Barr said.
“Because we don’t want [Vice President] Pence,” she added.
“Are you f—ing me? You want Pence? You want Pence for the fricking president?” Barr asked Kimmel, in mock disbelief.
“No, I don’t want either,” Kimmel replied.
“Well then zip that f—ing lip,” Barr said with a laugh.
