Hollywood (eTruePolitics) – Roseanne Barr is set to star as Donald Trump in ‘Joke’ based on the current United States president Trump’s grisly ‘pressers’; Harvey Weinstein will produce and Clint Eastwood direct the Netflix original production.
The film is the first since Weinstein’s conviction on sexual assault charges and represents the once high-flying Hollywood producer’s return to Hollywood.
“Trump’s sicker than me,” said Weinstein in a written statement, “so ‘Joke’ is a perfect vehicle to resume my career. I am especially delighted to have a stellar cast and team who have a deep understanding of the material. I am particularly pleased to have Twitter’s Jack Dorsey as executive producer. “
The cast includes Lori Loughlin playing the now familiar 64-year-old Dr. Deborah Birx of the CoronaVirus Task Force and Steven Seagal as Mike Pence. Ted Nugent and Kid Rock will jointly compose the score. Discussions with Scott Baio to play Dr. Anthony Fauci are on hold according to sources close to the famed immunologist who is said to be extremely unhappy with the casting of Baio.
“I’m the comeback kid,” crowed Weinstein to a gaggle of entertainment reporters.
