As much as the conversation surrounding Roseanne's surprise success is politically charged — thanks in part to Roseanne Barr's vociferous support of Donald Trump, and his returned enthusiasm for her ratings success — at least one star promises that the POTUS' name won't actually get an utterance on the show itself.
"The Conners aren't Trump supporters," Gilbert said. "Roseanne's character is a Trump supporter. She's the only one who supports [him]. And we never say his name, actually, in the show."
She went on to talk about the political back-and-forth that exists between the show's characters, saying that it's relevant to the rest of the country as well.
"The show is not about politics. It's not about anyone's position or policy. It's really about what happens to a family when there's a political divide, which I think is something that the entire country can relate to and we need to talk about. So, with our show it's never about doing an issue or doing politics, it's how do these things affect a family unit," Gilbert explained.
Roseanne airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on ABC.
