Wait, you thought we were talking about Hillary Clinton, right?
Roseanne Barr will be back on TV as a judge on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing,” but that doesn’t mean the 61-year-old comedian won’t be running for the White House again. That’s right: Roseanne ran for President in 2012 and got more than 60,000 votes.
“I might keep running till I win,” she told Confidenti@l. “I definitely can win — it’s a possibility, it’s not a probability but it’s a possibility. If you can make it to the ballot, you can win.”
Pressed to reveal her platform, she begged off, explaining that it was “too long and involved,” and advised us to visit roseanneworld.com to check out her agenda. She did admit to being thrilled by legalization of marijuana in parts of the country. “It’s great to see that I was right,” she said.
She said she ran because “I tried to bring up subjects that it seemed nobody else was talking about — working people and the things they go through and whether they’re being fairly represented in government, which I don’t think they are.”
She also sees the political system as rigged.
“It’s just two parties who work for the same boss,” she scoffed. “They all work for bankers who give them money. They get in there, and all they do is enrich themselves and enrich the people who gave them the millions of dollars it takes to run.”
Must be a big Koch Brothers fan.
