Roseanne for President Trailer


With all the Donald Trump-related craziness surrounding the upcoming U.S. election, it seems like an appropriate time to revisit a somewhat forgotten footnote from the 2012 election. As you may recall, Roseanne Barr actually ran for president and was the official candidate of the Peace and Freedom Party. While many accused her of using it as a publicity stunt and a comedy act, she maintains that she had a genuine desire to make America a better place. This summer IFC Films will release a documentary about the whole ordeal directed by Eric Weinrib, who previously produced a few of Michael Moore’s films. If you’re a fan of Roseanne, this is apparently the only way to get your fix right now considering that NBC shelved her comeback sitcom Downwardly Mobile a couple years ago. Roseanne for President hits select theatres and VOD on July 1st; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
