Samuel L. Jackson is voting for Hillary Clinton strictly because he doesn’t want a Republican to be president.

During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 67-year-old actor said he likes Bernie Sanders but doesn’t think he stands a chance.

“I’m forever a Democrat, you know, and I’m gonna vote for Hillary,” Jackson said. “I mean, I love Bernie — Bernie’s a man of the people — but he can’t win. So I gotta cast my vote for a person that can keep those other people from winning.” (RELATED: David Spade: The Obama Family Is ‘Thirsty’ For Attention)

“Not to mention, you know, Hillary kinda knows the job, she can hit the ground running,” Jackson added.

“She didn’t have a huge learning-curve like Barack had or some other people had. And hopefully she can open up the skeletal files of those do-nothing assholes that go to work, like, four times a year and not vote on things and threaten them with whatever she and Bill uncovered on them years ago and make ’em do something and we can get something done.”

He said he thinks Donald Trump is running on a platform of “hate.” (RELATED: WHO’S BACKING WHO: These Celebrities Are Giving Money To These Candidates)

“There’s absolutely nothing I can do,” Jackson said.

“There are some other people that aren’t as open about what he’s saying that are running also, you know, that are just as crazy, that have just as much ill-will toward the common man — and not just the common black man. People who don’t have a certain amount of money don’t mean anything to them.” (RELATED: Michael Moore: I’m Coming For ‘Big Wuss’ Donald Trump)
