With the relaunch of the sitcom “Roseanne” and the show keeping up with the political times, as Donald Trump is president in the show as well, one actress from the show said she doesn’t understand how women could vote for him.
“I think it’s being either under the thumb of your husband or, for the election, it was being so offended by Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton’s legacy that you turned on her, or feeling inadequate,” Sandra Bernhard told MSNBC on Wednesday.
“A lot of women have compromised, given in, you know, gotten married, raised their kids and not had the luxury of being able to think for themselves,” she continued. “And when you sacrifice that in your life and you say, ‘I don’t think I’m just going to lean on somebody else financially,’ that means you’ve got to get up every day and go work. I am not saying that none of these women work. Of course they do. But you also — there’s just those little gradations into how you look at other women and the sort of feeling of inadequacy.”
Bernhard’s comments are similar to what former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said while on a trip to India.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton said. “And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”
