So, About That Whole Roseanne-Running-For-President Thing

The comedian explains why she did it in this clip from her new documentary.

Roseanne Barr regularly makes headlines for her politics. Case in point: her latest rants against Hillary Clinton's campaign financing. In 2012, money was one of Barr's signature talking points when she ran for president, first as a Green Party candidate and ultimately as the Peace and Freedom Party's nominee. Barr's bid for the White House is the subject of a new documentary, "Roseanne for President!," which premieres on video on-demand and opens theatrically in New York and Los Angeles this Friday.

The Huffington Post has an exclusive clip from the movie, directed by Michael Moore collaborator Eric Weinrib. (Barr and Moore are also friends. He is the person who encouraged her to film her campaign endeavor.) In the scene, Barr explains her motivations for seeking office -- the same motivations she's had since her boundary-breaking eponymous sitcom: never stop fighting for the less-privileged class.
