Did having Roseanne Conner be a Trump supporter (just like Roseanne Barr in real life) betray the character from the original run? I mean, wasn't Roseanne Conner written as someone who detested many men, PARTICULARLY those who were abusive, as they reminded her of her own father. She therefore, would have NEVER respected someone as brash, abusive and authoritarian as Trump. It just doesn't mesh with her character.

I think that even John Goodman and other castmembers who worked with her felt that Roseanne's suddenly embrace of Trump both in REAL life and in the show seemed contrary to how both the actress and character operate.
