After “Roseanne” premiered last week, some conservatives balked at their side’s cheerleading, arguing the show isn’t really fair or helpful to the cause.

And they’re right— there are no conventional conservatives on the show, and the leading lady’s support for President Trump is coupled with her characteristic social progressivism. Some have argued that rather than doing Trump supporters any good, this dichotomy reinforces Hollywood’s message that to be an acceptable Republican one must embrace liberal social causes.

The problem with that argument is the conflation of Republicans and Trump supporters.
