Far-left wing actor Sean Penn told Financial Times media editor Matthew Garrahan that he’ll be backing Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, adding that he has little use for Republican Donald Trump’s populist messaging.
“It doesn’t matter what Trump says because all he is doing is selling,” the Hugo Chavez advocate said.
“It’s masturbatory populism. It’s really an opportunity for one man to have a group celebration of his own narcissism.”
What has people scratching heads the hardest is Penn’s suggestion for the former secretary of state’s running mate — Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a moderate Republican.
Nobody saw that one coming.
Penn, whose interview of Mexican drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman for “Rolling Stone” possibly led to his arrest was a former Sen. Bernie Sanders supporter.
Penn, 55, was also honest with Financial Times in his self-appraisal.
“It’s not a big leap to think of me as a loudmouth, limousine liberal,” he told the publication. And of his cigarette addiction, he said, “It’s just dumb-ass slavery. I’m getting more and more disgusted with myself over it.”
