Roseanne Barr Tweets Pro-Trump Conspiracy Theory
Fresh off a huge ratings hit for her new show, Roseanne Barr tweeted support for a right=wing conspiracy theory with roots in the racist “alt-right.”
President Trump has freed so many children held in bondage to pimps all over this world. Hundreds each month. He has broken up trafficking rings in high places everywhere. notice that. I disagree on some things, but give him benefit of doubt-4 now.— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) March 31, 2018
Barr, who drew an estimated 18 million viewers to her “Roseanne” reboot, was apparently referring to far right claims that prominent Democrats or Hollywood figures are involved in child trafficking.
The theory apparently originated on the 4chan site which is known as a haven for alt-right and racist ideas.
Barr backs Trump and plays a supporter of his on the show.
