Roseanne for President (Trailer)

Here I go… Running for President…
I’m the only serious comedian in this race…
I wasn’t shut up by networks… I won’t be shut up here…
Roseanne Barr

Yep. Rosanne is making a run for the White House for real. She is seriously on the campaign trail, and why, even at first glance, is that any more ridiculous than a Trump 2016 run?

Follow comedy legend Roseanne Barr as she embarks on a wild, hilarious, and impassioned campaign for the highest office in the land. It’s 2012 and Barr, fed up with corporate influence in politics, takes matters into her own hands when she launches a third-party Presidential bid founded on grassroots activism. Hitting the campaign trail, the sarcastic, opinionated, and outspoken Barr makes for a candidate unlike any other as she brings her message to the people. Featuring appearances from Michael Moore, Sandra Bernhard, Rosie O’Donnell, and others close to Barr, Roseanne for President! is both a rousing David vs. Goliath tale and a revealing portrait of a cultural icon.
– IFC Films

Now, of course, Rosanne is a comedian first; so there will surely be ‘funny’ in here. But this trailer is teasing an underlying story that looks to make you do a second take. Watch.

(Due out July 1, 2016.)

Michael Rapaport Talks About The ATCQ Documentary At Sundance (Video)

Alot of people were wondering why Phife only attended the Sundance screening in Utah & assumed that most of the brothas didn’t support the film. Ali Shaheed had been on a European tour & couldn’t make Sundance. Seems like before members of the media started making assumptions they should have probably reached out to them individually. Assuming that members of the press had tried at all. I’m still looking forward to seeing the film. A Tribe Called Quest is one of my favorite hip hop groups of all time & I’m also proud to enjoy a friendship with Phife, Jarobi, & Ali Shaheed.
