Comedienne and actress Roseanne Barr appeared on Thursday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" where she defended her support of President Donald Trump.

Barr appeared on the show alongside co-star John Goodman ahead of the "Roseanne" reboot, which is set to premiere Tuesday on ABC.

What did she tell Kimmel?

Kimmel began by discussing the political divide in the rebooted show's on-set family, noting that Barr's titular character was a Trump voter, while others in her TV family were not.

Barr went on to explain that life often imitates art, as her own family wasn't terribly different from her on-screen family.

"Everybody's family is pissed off at each other about one thing or the other. ... We had some pro-Hillarys and some pro-Trumps, and there was a lot of fighting," Barr said of her own family during the 2016 presidential election.

Kimmel went off on that and noted that he believed Barr was once friends with former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. He wondered where the friendship had gone wrong as Barr ended up voting for Trump during the election.

"I had some disagreement with her foreign policy. Did you agree with her foreign policy?" she asked Kimmel.

That's when things got lightheartedly combative.

"Listen, never mind her foreign policy," Kimmel shot back. "How about Captain Wacko we've got running the country here?"

Judging by the look on her face, it was easy to tell that Barr was immediately put off by Kimmel's remarks.

"I'm shocked, because I know you were a very liberal, socially liberal person in general," he continued, before Barr broke in with her own exclamation.

"I'm still the same — you all moved!" Barr interrupted. "You all went so f***ing far out, you lost everyone!"

"I'm serious," she continued. "A lot of your audience — including me — a lot of us, no matter who we voted for, we don't want to see our president fail. We don't want Pence. ... You want Pence for the freaking president?"

Kimmel answered that he definitely did not want Pence for president, either.

"Well then zip that f***ing lip!" Barr shot back.

What happened to her daughter?

Barr went on to detail one of her daughters' tearful breakdowns in response to Trump securing the presidential vote.

She revealed that she told her daughter to "just chill."

"Try to think positive for like why people wanted a change," Barr said. "It’s up to the people, here’s my two cents damn it, it’s up to us to make this government work, no matter who’s president."

The comedienne concluded, "It’s up to us to do our jobs as citizens and if we don’t like something, you know, let them know you don’t like it and then you’ve got another election in two years. Get out there and vote. Change it if you don’t like it."
