In the aftermath of the 2016 election, with all the shock going around, the Democrats and Hillary Clinton’s people didn’t really take the time to analyze what really happened. Yes, there were books written around that subject, and just about everyone agreed that she was a terrible candidate and not likable, but not many talked about how and why Trump’s message resonated when hers didn’t.
One American actress and comedian, Roseanne Barr, thinks she has the answer. Even as the United States was inserting itself into international conflicts that We the People really don’t know all that much about, Donald Trump talked about something central to the American way and psyche: JOBS.
In a recently published clip promoting her upcoming sitcom, the iconic comic unloaded on the former Secretary of State, saying “maybe” Americans cared about “Syrian airspace” but she certainly didn’t.
“He talked about jobs. That’s what you need to do if you want working people to vote for you. Not Syrian airspace,” Barr said. “I don’t think Hillary talked about jobs much. She was always just talking about Syrian airspace. Do you think people in America care? Maybe they do, I didn’t, though.”
And Trump was all over the country talking about jobs, too. Jobs and the financial stability that goes with jobs is essential to the American way of life. Trump talked about not just jobs but raising the standard of living for everyone and doing it honestly.
Hillary Clinton didn’t talk about any of that. Her most memorable moments on the campaign trail were fainting, falling, and calling the residents of flyover country “deplorables.”
That’s not really running an effective campaign.
Roseanne Barr also said that we the people were lucky to have elected Trump. The more that comes out about the Clinton Foundation and the whole pay to play scheme Hillary and her consort were running…Roseanne is exactly right.
'Roseanne' star @therealroseanne says "we're lucky" to have Trump as President: "Trump offended half of America and [Hillary Clinton] offended the other half, so that’s great for sitcoms. It's great for comedy." #Roseanne #ABC2020 https://t.co/P9rxblLmKs pic.twitter.com/qt6KFu1eKL
