(NewsCore) – Comedienne Roseanne Barr told Jay Leno she hopes to run for president under a newly created political party that eliminates money and permits marijuana.
“I am running for President of the United States … I’m not for either party because they both suck and they’re both a bunch of criminals, so I made up my own party — it’s America’s Green Tea Party,” she said late Thursday on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
“I’m totally serious, ’cause I want to be part of the debates, because I want to represent the taxpayer,” she continued, adding she will be “choosing the taxpayers as my vice president.”
Her platform includes eliminating taxes, legalizing marijuana and eradicating the use of money as payment for goods and services.
“Everything will be based on barter and growing and eating vegetables,” she said.
Barr, 58, voiced her political ambitions as she promoted her recently launched Lifetime reality series “Roseanne’s Nuts.”
The docudrama shows her life on the 40-acre (16-hectare) macadamia nut farm she operates on Hawaii’s Big Island with her boyfriend and son.
Barr received an Emmy and Golden Globe Award for her starring role on her “Roseanne” sitcom that ran on ABC from 1988 to 1997.
