I didn't watch Roseanne back when she was still alive, so to speak, s so I can't imagine why I'd be watching her now, but I've still managed to acquire enough opinions to take issue with young Ben Shapiro, who's pissed off because Roseanne and Dan voted for Trump but are not in his opinion authentic Trump voters, who are all, in his view, identical:
I started out trollishly agreeing with him:The whole premise of "Roseanne" is that this pro-abortion, pro-LGBT woman who is happy to watch her grandson wear girls' clothing voted Trump -- because she's blue collar. That isn't an accurate depiction of Trump voters. (/3)— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) March 28, 2018
You're right, it would have been better if Dan was more clearly self-employed and somewhat better off, but the age and lack of education fit the profile very well. I'm pretty sure sexual puritanism wasn't a factor either way.— Smash-Mouth Liberal (@Yastreblyansky) March 29, 2018
No, she's still be a Trump voter. The tolerance just makes her a tiny bit more interesting because cliché-ridden people like you are shocked by it. In reality Trump voters are idiots, but only some of them are idiots in the way you are.— Smash-Mouth Liberal (@Yastreblyansky) March 29, 2018
During the campaign, Trump claimed to be more liberal on LGTB issues than Clinton. He scored as left of GHW Bush and Bill Clinton on social issues https://t.co/DZK5x2RIcT— Smash-Mouth Liberal (@Yastreblyansky) March 29, 2018
White Evangelicals voted for Trump too, of course, and made the big difference, but not because they believed he hated gay people and abortion. It's because they believed he hated black people and Mexicans. And they were right.— Smash-Mouth Liberal (@Yastreblyansky) March 29, 2018
That bizarre, prim belief in the morality of conservatism, meaning of course his own idea of morality, which all persons of the "working class" must share because they don't belong to the corrupt elite—the story they keep telling themselves and have come to believe, having no experience of such people (they should listen to country music). Ben Shapiro (UCLA, Harvard Law) despises the elite, of course, and its contempt for the good old ordinary folk that made this country great. And now Hollywood's gone and corrupted Roseanne, or Roseanne has corrupted the working class, or something. It's so terrible.
