Actress, comedian, and reality TV star Roseanne Barr blasted Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton this week, warning that a Clinton victory would “be the absolute death of Israel”. Barr, best known for her eponymously named sit-com Roseanne which ran from 1988 to 1997, was raised in a Jewish family in Salt Lake City Utah. A former member of the Green Party, Barr ran for president in 2012 on another third party ticket, the Peace and Freedom Party.

Now a registered Republican, Barr appeared to endorse Trump in June, saying the US “would be so lucky” if Trump prevails in the November election, “because then it wouldn’t be Hillary”. Barr later clarified that her statements had not constituted an endorsement of any candidate. CONTINUE
