Susan Sarandon Doesn’t Know If She’d Vote For Hillary Clinton Over Donald Trump
Susan Sarandon doesn’t know if she’ll vote for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump.
The 69-year-old actress is a staunch supporter of Bernie Sanders, and during an interview on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes” Monday night, she said that most of his supporters have “come to despise Hillary Clinton or reject Hillary Clinton.”
“That’s a legitimate concern,” Sarandon said. “Because they’re very passionate and principled.” (RELATED: Susan Sarandon Defends Her Cleavage Against Piers Morgan After He Calls It ‘Horribly Inappropriate’)
“But isn’t that crazy?” Chris Hayes asked her. “If you believe in what he believes in?”
“Yeah but she doesn’t,” Sarandon said. “She accepted money for all of those people. She doesn’t even want to fight for a $15 minimum wage. So these are people that have not come out before. So why would we think they’re going to come out now for her, you know?”
“I think Bernie would probably encourage people [to vote for her], because he doesn’t have any ego in this thing,” she added. “But I think a lot of people are, ‘Sorry, I just can’t bring myself to [vote for Clinton].'” (VIDEO: Susan Sarandon: Trump The ‘Guy At The Wedding Who Gets Drunk And Just Goes On And On’)
When Hayes asked Sarandon if she would personally vote for Clinton if she secured the nomination, she said she was “going to see what happens.”
“Some people feel that Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in, things will really explode,” she continued.
“It’s dangerous to think that we can continue the way we are — with the militarized police force, with privatized prisons, with the death penalty, with the low minimum wage, threats to women’s rights — and think you can’t do something huge to turn that around.” (RELATED: Susan Sarandon Compares Syrian Refugees To Jesus)
