Watch: Roseanne Asks Voters to Wake Up in New Clip from 'Roseanne for President!'

“Roseanne for President!” centers around the famous, controversial comedian Roseanne Barr during her run for president in 2012. Despite Roseanne making people laugh for a living, her campaign was not a joke, as she aimed to be a voice for the working. The film not only provides a glimpse into the strange world of “other” party politics, but it also paints a revealing portrait of Roseanne’s life and career. 
In the above clip, we see Roseanne address a crowd of her supporters. Her passionate speech dispels of criticisms one might have of her running for president as a publicity stunt, as she jokingly acknowledges that her political views might’ve ended her career anyway.
“Roseanne for President!” will make its world premiere April 18 at the Tribeca Film Festival.
