Sarah Silverman Spent Some Time With Trump Voters. Now She’s Singing A Different Tune
Sarah Silverman said after spending some time with President Donald Trump voters for her upcoming show, she feels differently about them.
“When you’re one-on-one with someone who doesn’t agree with you, or whose ideology is different than yours, when you’re face to face, your porcupine needles go down,” the 46-year-old liberal comedian told the Hollywood Reporter. Her series on Hulu is titled “I Love You America.” (RELATED: Sarah Silverman Show: ‘Liberal Media’ Is Dog Whistle For ‘Jew Owned Media’ [VIDEO])
“The surprise was … I fell in love with them,” she added. “I had a great time with them, and I felt comfortable. I’m trying to be open.”
“I’m finding if I do engage with someone who is angry at me, or angry and I’m a place where they can put that anger … it’s almost always a good experience, because more than anything, all of us what we have in common is, we want to feel seen,” she continued. “We want to feel like we exist. We really should — all of us — work on not getting our self-esteem from outside forces, but it is so much when somebody just sees you. It’s just like, everything melts away.”
In one episode, Silverman sits down to dinner with a family that voted for Trump. She says no one’s minds were changed, but they found they didn’t have to “be divided to disagree.”
“Did we change each others’ minds? Um, f– no,” Silverman said in the episode. “But we did learn that we don’t have to be divided to disagree. We can have fun. We can even love each other.”
However, as far as her feelings about the president, she has not changed her mind.
“We’re waiting for him [Trump] to hit bottom,” Silverman shared. “There’s no bottom. It’s bottomless.”
“He doesn’t understand what happiness is,” she added according to another report. “If he wasn’t ruining people’s lives and destroying the planet, my heart would break for him. He’s a damaged, damaged person.”
