Devout Bernie fan and long-time political activist, Susan Sarandon, has been very vocal about where she stands on the choices for presidential candidates in 2016. She’s not afraid to say what she thinks, and this time she has set her sights on none other than Donald Trump. Recently, Sarandon sat for an interview with The Young Turks, and her true feelings about the bronze douche-bag came to light.
Sarandon compared Trump to that drunk uncle at everyone’s weddings. You know the guy…he has a little too much to drink, grabs the mic, and starts rambling incoherently for far too long. Only difference she could equate between the two was that drunken uncle is merely a nuisance, while Trump is a danger to America and its citizens.
The Oscar-winning actress said this:
‘What concerns me is not him. What concerns me is that he has made hatred and racism normal. He’s normalized it. He’s taking this, you know, [THE]undercurrent of discontent that’s looking to blame somebody and he’s legitimized those feelings and that, I think, is a very dangerous thing.’
Sarandon went on to talk about the fact that Donald Trump has, quite possibly, irreparably destroyed the Republican party with his silly antics and hate speech:
‘I cannot believe for a second that America would actually make Donald Trump the president,” the 69-year-old actress said. “Republicans are not all bad, they’re not all crazy, they’re not all greedy. I think there’s some very sane Republicans and they must be so embarrassed by what’s going on right now.’
One thing is certain. People in America, even rich, entitled celebrities, are standing up to Trump and asking “WTF America?” How could so many of you be seriously considering electing a 4-time failed businessman and reality television star President of The United States?
