Roseanne takes a swipe at Ben Shapiro after he criticizes show’s portrayal of Trump supporters

Ben Shapiro’s critical view of the ABC sitcom “Roseanne” and its portrayal of Trump voters earned him a jab from the show’s star.

The show’s reboot returned to huge television ratings this week after a two decade absence, re-introducing the main character played by Roseanne Barr whom audiences learned is a “deplorable” who voted for President Trump. Barr got a personal call from the president after at least 18.2 million viewers tuned in on the night of the show’s return.

The Daily Wire’s Shapiro argued that, in fact, there was a clear reason for the success of the episode.

He went on to argue that the reboot does not accurately portray the Trump voter, but is “a Hollywood fantasy of what Trump voters are.”
