This Is Not a Joke: Roseanne Barr Is Running for President AP

Actress and comedian Roseanne Barr is entering the U.S. presidential election, reports the Associated Press.

Barr is seeking the nomination of the Green Party, with the actress saying in a statement that she's a longtime supporter of the party, according to the story.

"The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants -- bought and paid for by the 1% -- who are not doing what's in the best interest of the American people," Barr said.

The Green Party will nominate a candidate at a convention in July, the story says.

Barr, the star of the comedy series "Roseanne" from 1988 to 1997, said she has been fighting for women and the working class for decades, according to the story. She now owns a 46-acre macadamia nut farm in Hawaii, which was featured last year in the Lifetime reality show “Roseanne’s Nuts.”
