It didn’t take long when Roseanne Barr’s stopped by Jimmy Kimmel for things to get political. When Barr and costar John Goodman made an appearance on the late night show to promote the reboot of their classic sitcom, Kimmel mentioned that Barr herself ran for president in 2012 and that her character in the show, like her, voted for Donald Trump. You can imagine how the rest went.

After admitting that he was “shocked” that someone who was previously so close to Clinton and socially liberal could vote for someone like Trump things got a bit heated. “I had some disagreement with her foreign policy,” said Barr. “Because she had one,” quips Goodman, as Kimmel asks if she likes Trump’s foreign policy more.

“I’m still the same. You all moved. You all went so fuckin far out, you lost everything,” she said. “A lot of us, no matter who we voted for, we don’t want to see our president fail. Because we don’t want Pence! Are you shitting me? You want Pence? You want Pence for the fricking president?” she asks.

“No, I don’t want him either,” said Kimmel.

“Then zip that fucking lip,” Barr said. Watch the exchange, below.
