The trailer for Roseanne for President! is here and we promise it is going to make your Friday.
American comedian Roseanne Barr’s campaign for presidential election in 2012, on behalf of the Californian Peace and Freedom Party, has been preserved in film.
It follows the Barr, who is best known for her self-titled show, as she tried to break the system.
In the two-and-a-half-minute clip she pokes fun at the big parties ruling the US, calls for marijuana to be legalised, and asks: “Can an intelligent woman win a really rigged system? We’ll find out.”
ROSEANNE FOR PRESIDENT opens on July 1! Here’s a trailer!
27 years after ROSEANNE BARR’s groundbreaking sitcom “Roseanne” became the #1 show on television, ROSEANNE FOR PRESIDENT! brings you the story of the Emmy Award-winning actress and trailblazing comedian’s 2012 gonzo campaign for president of the United States. Having written and created a sitcom that changed the cultural landscape by revolutionizing what Americans think of family, class, race, gender, and gay rights, Roseanne is uniquely qualified to fix – well, everything.
Through the warped lens of the Barr Campaign, this surreal dark comedy examines the impact Roseanne’s work has had on society and who she is as a person. Fearlessly speaking truth to power comes with a price and Roseanne has taken some bumps and bruises along the way. The movie digs deep into Roseanne’s past, unearthing a personality that even the filmmakers had no idea they would encounter. What begins as a political journey becomes a raw and revealing portrait of a comedic icon.

She eventually lost to candidate Jill Stein, but Barr later announced she would run on the Peace and Freedom Party. By the end of her campaign, Barr received over 65,000 votes nationwide.
