Susan Sarandon Says Trump ‘Might’ Be Better Than Hillary Clinton, Reveals Why Hillary Might Not Have Her Vote
Susan Sarandon is stirring up a lot of emotions in the Democratic party. Sarandon, a staunch liberal, had a few choice words on Donald Trump, and to seemingly everyone’s surprise, they’re actually in favor of Trump — sort of.
The actress is supporting senator Bernie Sanders, who’s running for the Democrat nomination against Hillary Clinton. With that in mind, Sarandon has an interesting perspective on all the candidates, including Donald Trump, the frontrunner of the GOP.
While on All In With Chris Matthews, Sarandon started off by ironing out the perception that the Democratic party is broken because Bernie supporters are seen as a group against Hillary Clinton. The opposing sides of the Democratic party has been widely covered by the media — some say that Bernie has a “Bernie bro” problem, while others are writing think pieces on what will happen if Sanders doesn’t get the nomination, and his supporters decide to fold.

“I think, in certain quarters, there’s growing concern that the folks that are into Bernie Sanders have come to despise Hillary Clinton or reject Hillary Clinton and that should she be the nominee, which is as yet undetermined, they will walk away.”
Sarandon continued to support the passionate voices of those that support Bernie Sanders, and broke down the main difference between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, while highlighting the exact reason on why she might not show up for Hillary even if it’s down to Clinton vs Trump.
“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?”

Here’s the real kicker — when pressed about which way she will go if it’s Trump against Clinton, Sarandon says in a roundabout way that Donald Trump will be better for America than Hillary Clinton. If going solely by media coverage, Sarandon’s opinion is in the minority, because despite his campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again,” there’s a ton of people out there that don’t believe him and find Trump to be xenophobic, as well as a host of other things.
“I think a lot of people are, ‘Sorry, I just can’t bring myself to [vote for Clinton],’ ” said Sarandon.
“Some people feel that Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in, things will really explode.”
She continued as follows.
“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.”
Is Donald Trump the person to turn this all around? His stances don’t reflect that he’s for women’s rights, but his supporters, have now voiced their support of Susan Sarandon.

The last we heard on Sarandon’s opinion of Donald Trump she was calling him a drunk uncle.
“He reminds me of a drunk uncle at a wedding, who gets up and starts talking and just loves the crowd and just goes on and on and on and says whatever he can to get a reaction.”
Back then, Sarandon said she couldn’t take him seriously. According to Twitter, now people don’t want to take Susan Sarandon seriously, either.
Donald Trump is your 69-year-old drunk liberal uncle at a wedding, and Susan Sarandon is your 69-year-old drunk liberal aunt under a pew.
