The newly revived Roseanne show has been incredibly successful so far. That fact has made some liberals nervous. They don’t want Trump supporters to be presented as normal and likable people. One New York Times writer even calls it dangerous.
Here’s an excerpt from the Times, via Hot Air:
As I watched the first two episodes of the “Roseanne” reboot, I thought again about accountability. I laughed, yes, and enjoyed seeing the Conner family back on my screen. My first reaction was that the show was excellent. But I could not set aside what I know of Roseanne Barr and how toxic and dangerous her current public persona is.
I could not overlook how the Conner family came together to support Mark as he was bullied at school for his gender presentation, after voting for a president who actively works against the transgender community. They voted for a president who doesn’t think the black life of their granddaughter matters. They act as if love can protect the most vulnerable members of their family from the repercussions of their political choices. It cannot.
This is an important reminder that neither Trump, nor his supporters can ever win favor with the left.
Nothing you ever do or say will be good enough for them.
They see you as the enemy. Remember that.
