Surprise Picture Causes Dems to Slam Socialist Darling
The A-list star in question happened to be Susan Sarandon, a fellow Democratic socialist who famously said Hillary was more dangerous than Donald Trump. (The Daily Wire)
Sarandon, a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016, offended supporters of Hillary Clinton in March 2016. In a conversation with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, she said she might not vote for Hillary if she won the presidential nomination, stating, “I think Bernie would probably encourage people [to vote Clinton], because he doesn’t have a lot of ego in this. But I think a lot of people are, ‘Sorry, I just can’t bring myself to do that,’” adding, “I don’t know. I’m going to see what happens.”
Then, in June 2016, appearing on The Young Turks, Sarandon made the statement for which Hillary supporters still condemn her, asserting that Hillary was more dangerous than GOP candidate Donald Trump. She said, “I believe in a way she is more dangerous. They’re both talking to Henry Kissinger, apparently. … She did not learn from Iraq, and she is an interventionist, and she has done horrible things — and very callously. I don’t know if she is overcompensating or what her trip is. That scares me. I think we’ll be in Iran in two seconds.”
Sarandon continued by saying voters were being “fed” a message that Trump was “so dangerous” over his stance on illegal immigration, adding, “I don’t know what his policy is. I do know what her policies are, I do know who she is taking money from. I do know that she is not transparent, and I do know that nobody calls her on it.”
That apparently prompted threatening messages from Hillary supporters. Sarandon said some of them included, “I hope your crotch is grabbed,” and “I hope you’re raped.” Sarandon ultimately wound up voting for Jill Stein.
Hillary's army of online trolls hasn't forgotten this perceived betrayal. Never mind Sarandon lives in California, where for all intents and purposes, her vote in a presidential election doesn't matter.
Why is she posing with the woman who gave us Trump?— Seriously folks? (@FrsHamp1) July 5, 2018
NOT a good look, @Ocasio2018— rosiec75 (@rosiec754d) July 5, 2018
Neither Bernie nor Susan have been forgiven for handing the WH to tRump after LOSING the primary in your district. NYC does NOT forget.
Friendly advise: KEEP YOUR DISTANCE
Ok young lady when you cozy to this one. You've lost me. You have to be careful of the company your keep.— Faye Fellows (@cottage_orchard) July 5, 2018
“Fear of Donald Trump is not enough for me to support Clinton, with her record of corruption.” — Susan Sarandon— Phil Rubin (@MusicWriter561) July 5, 2018
