The show is about the life of a blue-collar family in Illinois. In the first episode, Barr’s character announces herself as a Trump supporter. Barr is also a Trump supporter in real life.
Like Trump, Barr seems to like conspiracy theories, tweeting a false one recently about Parkland, Florida, shooting survivor David Hogg.
Far-right conspiracy theorists falsely say Hogg put his arm up in a Nazi salute during the March for Our Lives on Saturday. And Barr glommed onto that false narrative in a tweet on Tuesday.
