While Donald Trump does not have a lot of public celebrity supporters, he certainly has one in Roseanne Barr. The comedienne was fired from a reboot of her hit show, Roseanne, after a number of racist comments. Barr says, however, that she was fired due to her support of the President.
For some conservatives, the actress has become a martyr and someone you would want to appear at events. One of those events will be a Trumpettes event, held at Mar-a-Lago, which will take place in February of 2020.
Donald Trump Jr. is also scheduled to appear at the event as well. Unsurprisingly, copies of his book, Triggered, will be given out to all attendees at the gala.
But the headliner of the event will be Roseanne Barr. The organizer of the gala, Toni Holt Kramer, is excited to have her.
Kramer said of the comedienne, “Roseanne is is a really loyal Trump supporter. If there was ever anybody who really put their mouth on the line and said how much she loves the president, she is one of them. And you can’t get a hotter name in town.”
The organizer also defended Barr from claims that she is a racist. “I know Roseanne, and if I know somebody who is not racist, it’s certainly Roseanne,” she said “She’s a phenomenal woman.”
Kramer also agrees that Barr’s firing was due to Hollywood’s intolerance rather than the comedienne’s own actions. She told the Palm Beach Post, “You have to know Hollywood is a very left, Democratic community. They want everybody to be on the left. And if you aren’t, you’re not going to work very often.”
