Watch Trailer for “Roseanne for President”
You might have heard that groundbreaking comedian and sitcom star Roseanne Barr has ran for office of President of these United States. Compared to everything else that has happened in this election, it’s not that odd.
Director Eric Weinrib made a documentary following Roseanne on the campaign trail and it looks pretty crazy, especially when you take in the reality of a comedian actually running for POTUS.
Watch the trailer here, then look for it in theaters and on VOD on July 1st.
