‘I think she was very dangerous’: Susan Sarandon still insists ‘we would be at war’ if Hillary beat Trump

Published

on

In an extensive interview with the Guardian, actress Susan Sarandon reaffirmed her belief that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton posed a greater threat to the country than President Donald Trump, stating, ” I think she was very dangerous.”

Sarandon, who has taken heat for her previous comments both before the election and after Trump won in 2016, was unapologetic despite what has transpired under the Republican president.

“Well, I knew that New York was going to go [for Hillary]. It was probably the easiest place to vote for Stein. Bringing attention to working-class issues is not a luxury,” Sarandon explained. “People are really hurting; that’s how this guy got in. What we should be discussing is not the election, but how we got to the point where Trump was the answer.”

Asked about her comment before the election that Clinton was more dangerous than Trump and if she stood by it, Sarandon said she was misquoted but wasn’t bothered by the sentiment.

“Not exactly, but I don’t mind that quote,” she stated. “I did think she was very, very dangerous. We would still be fracking, we would be at war [if she was president]. It wouldn’t be much smoother. Look what happened under Obama that we didn’t notice.”

The actress also took some shots at former President Barack Obama, when claiming Clinton would actively be deporting immigrants.

“She would’ve done it the way Obama did it, which was sneakily,” Sarandon asserted. “He deported more people than have been deported now. How he got the Nobel Peace Prize, I don’t know. I think it was very important to have a black family in the White House and I think some of the stuff he did was good. He tried really hard about healthcare. But he didn’t go all the way because of big pharma.”

Published

Vice President Mike Pence has kept the nation's top health officials from appearing on CNN since the network stopped carrying the daily coronavirus briefings in their entirety.

The vice president's office, which is responsible for booking those officials to deliver pandemic information, told CNN that Dr. Deborah Birx or Dr. Anthony Fauci would not be permitted to appear on the network until it carries the briefings, including Pence's remarks, in full.

"When you guys cover the briefings with the health officials then you can expect them back on your air," a Pence spokesperson told CNN.

‘Well-spoken cultist’: Bill Barr trashed for praising ‘statesmanlike’ Trump and urging an end to COVID-19 lockdowns

Published

During an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham Wednesday night, Attorney General Bill Barr praised President Trump's "statesman-like" effort at the "beginning" of the coronavirus epidemic where he "tried to bring people together" while "working with all the governors" -- a characterization that did not go over well with many of the President's critics on Twitter.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” —Second Amendment to the United States Constitution

As the deadly COVID-19 contagion sweeps across the country, gun sales are surging, spurred in many regions by panic buying and purchases by first-time firearm owners. Fearful and insecure Americans are taking advantage of weak and ineffective gun-control laws and stocking up, as President Trump might say, “like never before.”
