Diehard Bernie Sanders supporter Susan Sarandon declared something downright shocking in an MSNBC interview. If Bernie doesn’t get the nomination, she’s not voting democrat at all — she’s casting her ballot for Trump! Wait, what?
Susan Sarandon, 69, has been stumping hard for democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, 74, out on the campaign trail, and she believes in his cause so strongly that she won’t vote for any other democrat. You read that right. She’s so anti-Hillary Clinton, that she thinks GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, 69, would be a better choice than the 68-year-old former Secretary of State, as she told MSNBC’s Chris Hayes in a March 28 interview. Allow her to, um, explain further when you click through!
Susan’s interview on All In With Chris Hayes got very heated when the topic of a President Hillary Clinton came up. She spoke at great lengths about her admiration for Bernie, about how she thinks he’s the most honest candidate in the game, and that nobody else in politics is so “morally consistent.” Apparently, you ain’t going to find that with Hillary.
“[Sanders supporters] feel like [Hillary’s] not authentic, that she’s a liar, that they don’t trust her, so what difference does it make?” Susan said. “She’s not on the right side of that. She hasn’t voted right.” Susan explained to Chris that people are uncomfortable with Hillary and her policies because, so unlike Bernie, she accepts money from Wall Street and big banks. It’s undeniable that Bernie’s started a movement with his campaign, and she doesn’t think that Hillary’s going to get the same momentum.
But why, for the love of God, would she vote Trump over Hillary? Is she really that bad of a candidate that such a left-leaning person would cross over party lines to vote for one of the most controversial, contentious non-politicans in the race?
“Well, you know, some people feel Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately,” Sarandon told Chris about why she’d vote for Trump. “If he gets in, then things will really explode. The status quo is not working. I think it’s dangerous to think that we can continue the way we are … to think you can’t do something huge to turn that around, because the country is not in good shape if you’re in the middle class.”
Well, there you have it! She must really be unhappy with the thought of Hillary as president if she would choose to vote for a racist, xenophobic, homophobic, sexist, egotistic, fear mongering candidate with no political experience instead! It will be interesting to hear what Bernie, Hillary and Trump have to say about this endorsement!
