Actress Chloe Grace Moretz: ‘Young Women Deserve Better Role Models’ Than Melania And Ivanka
Chloe Grace Moretz told Variety that “young women deserve better role models” than Melania and Ivanka Trump.
The two women are treated so terribly by President Donald Trump that Moretz believes that they are “products of mental manipulation.”
“I think some people are in a bubble and it’s a very sad bubble,” the 20-year-old actress told Variety. (RELATED: Chloe Grace Moretz Pleads With Millennials: Get Registered And Vote Clinton)
“I hate to see any woman not speaking up for themselves and what they believe in,” she added. “I wish they were more aware of their surroundings, and I wish they were more aware of what their husband and father are doing. It pains me to see people who are just speaking through this veiled curtain of privilege and they have no compass of what is real.”
“I think that young women deserve better role models,” she continued. “And I hate to see the way that Melania is treated — I think that she is treated really badly, and I hate to see a woman who is not respected by her own husband, and a daughter who doesn’t see that she is disrespected by her father. I think that’s really sad. I think they’re also products of mental manipulation. You can’t see the forest through the trees when you’re that deep.”
Moretz, a vocal Hillary Clinton supporter in 2016, said she plans to be involved in politics again in 2020 and dreams Clinton will run again.
“I’ll support whoever is the best candidate and support whoever I really connect to and who will be perfect for our presidency,” the “Kick Ass” star explained. “In my dream of dreams, I’m still like, ‘Hillary, maybe you’ll run again!'”
