Hollywood is known for being full of elitist liberals who like to use their fifteen minutes of fame to try and showcase their pet project of the moment or speak on their personal opinions. Despite the fact that we don’t listen to their music or watch their movies to hear their opinions on politics, but to enjoy ourselves. Every once in a while, a token conservative comes out of the woodwork and shocks everyone.
Mel Gibson, Gary Sinise, and Stacey Dash are just a few of those Hollywood conservatives who have strayed from the progressive pack. They never cease to get bashed in the media for their opinions because they are conservative. Gibson was banned from Hollywood for over a decade and Dash has been relentlessly mocked. But one more Hollywood entertainer is joining the pack of conservatives who aren’t afraid to make their voice be heard.
Comedian and actress Roseanne Barr is active on social media and in politics and she went on Twitter to support the President! She has even run for President herself before, under less well known third parties. Look at what she posted here,
Every single attack on @POTUS is really a disguised attack on American voters who rejected Obama-Clinton-Bush's bleeding of R treasury.

Barr’s opinions and political ideologies align more so with touting policies that favor middle class Americans and reject rampant consumerism. She is probably about as nutty now as she was when her show was on the air in the 1980’s and 1990’s, but she supported the President. In the past she has said the following about the President,
“I like Trump because he financed his own [campaign]. That’s the only way he could’ve gotten that nomination. Because nobody wants a president who isn’t from Yale and Harvard and in the club. ‘Cause it’s all about distribution. When you’re in the club, you’ve got people that you sell to. That’s how money changes hands, that’s how business works. If you’ve got friends there, they scratch your back and blah, blah.”
Perhaps now that more Hollywood conservatives are popping out of the woodwork we will see more of them as they feel more comfortable around others who are coming out too.
