The left has provided us with some head-scratching internecine debates, but this one from Hollywood -- involving progressive actresses Susan Sarandon and Debra Messing -- is the dumbest in quite some time.
Celebrities have spent the past 16 months tarring President Donald Trump with every imaginable crime. Two female comics took their Trump hate to a new level this week. The historic opening of the first U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem, fulfilling a promise made by President Trump, caused celebrities to reflexively smite Trump’s foreign policy.
Susan Sarandon is a big-time Bernie fan. But since Donald Trump’s win, Hillary Clinton supporters have harassed the actress so much that she's had to change her phone number. So much for liberal tolerance. On April 12, Sarandon joined the ladies of The View to discuss her role as Hollywood legend Bette Davis in FX’s Feud. But, inevitably, the election came up too.
The right might not agree with most of what Hollywood celebrities say regarding politics, but there’s one thing they can agree on: The media underestimated voters’ desire for change from the status quo this election. On MSNBC’s All In With Chris Hayes Wednesday night, Hayes found an unlikely critic of the media and Democrats in actress Susan Sarandon, who openly campaigned for Bernie Sanders and criticized Hillary Clinton during the primaries.
Radical-left actress/activist Susan Sarandon was probably feeling too much of a “Bern” at the DNC convention this past Monday. The longtime Bernie Sanders supporter called out the Democratic National Committee for their “disgusting” conduct which was revealed this past weekend thanks to WikiLeaks posting thousands of DNC staff emails.
In an interview with NBC correspondent Chris Jansing aired during MSNBC’s 1 p.m. ET hour on Thursday, left-wing actress and fervent Bernie Sanders supporter Susan Sarandon called out the lack of media attention for Hillary Clinton’s ongoing e-mail scandal: “I don’t know anybody – nobody’s even talking about this indictment, what happens with that? Besides the trust issue of catching her in so many lies.”
How crazy left does a president have to be, if Barack Obama isn’t considered “progressive?” According to Comedy Central host Larry Wilmore the United States hasn’t had a progressive president since Lyndon Johnson. That wasn’t good enough for his guest, actress Susan Sarandon, who insisted you had to reach all the way back to Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
Left-wing celebrity Susan Sarandon on Tuesday blasted Hillary Clinton as just a “rich” person who got where she is because of her husband. Appearing on The View, the actress also condemned the “shaming” for women who don’t support Mrs. Clinton. She mocked, “Don't get me wrong, the idea of a woman president, I know will happen and I hope some day it will be the daughter of someone who's not rich, who's not married to someone who was a president, that that can happen in this country.”
Actress Susan Sarandon embodies the definitive caricature of the raving socialist so brimming with “compassion” and with an estimated net worth of $50 million. She infuriated liberals by telling MSNBC host Chris Hayes on March 28 that she can only envision Bernie Sanders for president: “I really want to be on the right side of history and this is a shot we're not going to have in my lifetime to have a candidate that's so morally consistent,” while Hillary Clinton is a stalking horse for Wall Street or “fracking or Monsanto.”
She wouldn’t relent and say she’d vote for Hillary instead of Trump: “Some people feel Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in then things will really, you know, explode.”
Promoting her endorsement of socialist Bernie Sanders on the Monday edition of MSNBC’s All In, liberal actress Susan Sarandon proclaimed that she’s backing Sanders because she “really want[s] to be on the right side of history” and not with Hillary Clinton or anyone who’s “tak[en] any money from fracking or Monsanto or, you know Super PACs or Wall Street or big farm.”
Last night Susan Sarandon, one of Hollywood's most outspoken leftist celebrities paid a visit to Late Night with Seth Meyers – whose host almost nightly bashes conservatives – so of course Sarandon’s liberal activism was the main topic of conversation. The actress worked in plugs for Bernie Sanders and the Huffington Post while bashing the “hate rhetoric” coming from some in the GOP, all in one short interview.
Liberal actress Susan Sarandon appeared on The View, Monday, to lecture “xenophobic” Americans on letting Syrian refugees into the country. The movie star, who has just returned from a trip to Greece where she talked to fleeing Syrians, also incorrectly claimed that terrorists have not come into America disguised as refugees.
