Actress Susan Sarandon is happy she didn’t vote for her former pal Hillary Clinton, and says the United States dodged a bullet with her defeat.
“She was very, very dangerous,” Sarandon told the Guardian. “We would still be fracking. We would be at war [if she were president] … Look what happened under Obama that we didn’t notice.”
Sarandon supported Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary race, and then backed Jill Stein during the presidential election.
Sarandon is a hardcore liberal who does not support President Donald Trump, but suggested he was a better choice than Hillary, whom she called “not authentic” and “an opportunist.”
Sarandon was once close friends with Hillary, whom she supported during Clinton’s 2001 run for Senate. The Oscar winner said she was viciously attacked by the left when she refused to back Clinton during the 2016 election.
“I’m not attacked from the right at all,” Susan told the Guardian. “I got from Hillary people [hateful messages like] ‘I hope your crotch is grabbed’, ‘I hope you’re raped.’ Misogynistic attacks.”
Even her fellow Hollywood liberals trashed her. In November 2016, actress Debra Messing blamed Sarandon for Clinton’s loss, saying her decision to support Jill Stein tipped the election in Trump’s favor.
At the time, Sarandon shut Messing down with a simple tweet: “To all those who find blaming me less painful than introspection, never knew I was this powerful.”
While Sarandon does not support President Trump, she said in 2016 that she was confident Trump would shake up Washington and bring much-needed change to the D.C. swamp.
“Some people feel that Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately,” Sarandon told MSNBC. “Then things will really, you know, explode.” And so it appears, things have.
