Comedian Roseanne Barr told the Hollywood Reporter she would welcome an invitation from the White House to screen her rebooted TV series "Roseanne" when it airs next week.  

"Of course," she said. "Are you kidding me? I would hope that he would have good food."

"Roseanne" returns to ABC on March 27. The sitcom, which originally aired from 1988 to 1997, tackles political issues, but aims for a blue collar representation. Barr, a vocal Donald Trump supporter, revealed in January that the Connors family on the show voted for Trump, and that's a plotline in the revival.

"It's just realistic," she told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s Winter Press Tour. "I have always … attempted to portray a realistic portrait of the American people and working class people. And, in fact, it was working class people that elected Trump, so I felt that was very real and something that needed to be discussed."

The show, according to Barr, will tackle the "circumstances that led to the current administration, not the current administration."

"We’re not talking about Mueller and Trump and Russia, we're talking about not having healthcare and just the circumstances of a heartland, blue-collar family."

She further explained,"Not having a 401(k), having a knee injury that you can't get fixed because you don’t have health insurance and Roseanne is driving an Uber because she didn't have a retirement plan. Elgin [Indiana, where the show takes place] is now primarily Mexican and dealing with undocumented workers and that complication because Dan is in construction. There's a Muslim family that moves in next door, and for someone that watches Fox News that can be scary. It's very human problems that get politicized sometimes."
