She seems like a female version of Trump
Shame, I have fond memories of the show when it was first on

she posted a racist tweet. I wont defend it.
However the hypocrisy of the left is apparent with the glee they have shown over her show getting cancelled considering the amount of abusive things that have come from american shows about trump and his family.

I very vaguely remember from the original show that the Blonde Haired daughter wanted to be a Doctor ( much to the dismay of her hubby)
Did she become one ?

Dean , was the original show political left of centre?

Another episode I can remember, Roseanne finds out that her son doesnt want to kiss a girl during a school play, it then transpires that the girl in question is African American and Roseanne is filled with anguish that her son might be a proto- bigot

The word 'racist' should be obliterated from all languages.

The wogs, pc brigade, shirt lifters/carpet munchers and every Tom, Dick and Abdul with a petty grievance have latched onto it to gain the moral high ground on arguments they never could win without it.

The pakiz oop north are committing vile heinous crimes against children and females and getting away with it, people are scared to speak out because of that one word RACIST.
EVERYONE on TV is scared stiff of losing their lucrative jobs if they speak their minds.

Wogs are gagging the white world and taking it over with this word.

Sticks and stones?????????????

the original show was about an ordinary working class american family, the most left leaning character would have been her sister Jackie.
