We’ve told you about how much Susan Sarandon – yes, THAT Susan Sarandon – doesn’t like Hillary Clinton. She’s even claimed that more in Hollywood would go Bernie if it wasn’t for their fear of the Clintons ruining their careers. Tolerance, thy name is Clinton. But can Sarandon vote for Hillary if need be?
“I think Bernie would probably encourage people, because he doesn’t have any ego in this thing,” Sarandon told him. “But I think a lot of people are, ‘Sorry, I just can’t bring myself to [vote for Clinton].’”
“How about you personally?” Hayes asked.
“I don’t know. I’m going to see what happens,” Sarandon said.
“Really,” Sarandon said, adding that “some people feel that Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in, things will really explode.” Asked if she thinks that’s “dangerous,” she replied, “It’s dangerous to think that we can continue the way we are with the militarized police force, with privatized prisons, with the death penalty, with the low minimum wage, threats to women’s rights and think you can’t do something huge to turn that around.”
So if 2016 can’t get any more bizarre, one of the most leftist actresses in history…might go Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton.
Now you Trump-supporters need to hang on to your MAKE AMERICA GREAT hats for just a tiny second. Don’t hashtag this yet. Sarandon isn’t endorsing Donald Trump for his wonderfulness. She’s not chanting your messages or buying bumperstickers. What Sarandon did in a not so subtle way was tell the world how much she hates Hillary Clinton.
This doesn’t mean that Sarandon makes good dinner company. We’d likely disagree on abortion. Obviously we’d mince words over the minimum wage fight while arguing what to tip the server. We’d have to duke it out over how stupid the gender pay gap myth is. Also, her eye-bags disturb me. But when it comes to what a despicable, horrible, rotten-to-the-core, old bag Hillary Clinton is?
Finally. Common ground. Let’s firmly plant our “Hillary Sucks 2016” flag here. Maybe just a little to the left…
Say what you want about Bernie Sanders. Well… we have. We’ve mocked him tirelessly. We’ve called him a fascist for mediocrity. We’ve made him a caricature. We’ve even insulted the manliness of his male supporters. You know what we haven’t done? Questioned Bernie Sanders’ genuine attitude and agenda. He’s out there, people. He’s proudly waving the socialist flag. He’s not pretending to be something he’s not. Guess what it’s earned him? Enthusiastic support. Is it a little scary that so many people are totally okay with socialism? Yes. A lot scary. But there’s a deeper lesson that Hillary Clinton cannot learn: people gravitate to genuine. People like it when you’re real (see also Donald Trump). Hillary Clinton is anything but real. She’s stiff, robotic, a consummate liar, a criminal, and a rape cover-up artist. No, none of those descriptors are sexist. Stop it. Hillary Clinton is a horrible human being. Even leftists like Sarandon cannot stand her. Put that in your hookah and smoke it (yes, I went multicultural on you).
Hillary Clinton 2016: OMG NO. Trademark that crap.
Before you make that bumpersticker, here’s a fun video where Bernie gets mocked. Saved you a click. You’re welcome.
