Susan Sarandon was wrong to not vote for Hillary
I don’t know why Susan Sarandon is trending. I don’t care. But here is a reminder of who she is. https://t.co/MGuqMK1l05

There aren’t any matters that are currently more pressing than grappling with the fact that I listened to what actress Susan Sarandon had to say during the 2016 presidential election and did not vote for Hillary Clinton.
You may see a presidential administration that is going above and beyond to criminalize immigration. There are more migrants in camps or detention centers than ever before, but when I see the crying faces of children without their parents, I don’t think of Donald Trump. All I can think of is Louise and how she and Thelma drove their car off a cliff and that cliff was Donald Trump.
Just as Janet Weiss was seduced by the allure of the sex god, Rocky Horror, Sarandon was entranced by the political revolution promised by Bernie Sanders. Under the spell of the Berns, she became convinced that Clinton was dangerous and would start a war if elected. She also suggested that Trump’s election would lead to an explosive revolt, but that did not happen because Robert Mueller would never have approved and we needed his approval to have Mueller Time.
Years have gone by since Clinton did not travel to Wisconsin. All I can think of is how Sarandon still refuses to acknowledge the role she played in getting Trump elected. Her advocacy for Clinton would have made up for every failure committed by her campaign team, as they downplayed polling data that showed she was losing ground to a failing business tycoon.
While other factors, like stagnating wages and the impact of neoliberal globalization may be more responsible, focusing on the way in which Trump astutely exploited economic discontent could never give me the same satisfaction as piling on a movie actress who dissents from the liberal establishment.
If Susan Sarandon gave us Trump, does that mean Russian President Vladimir Putin and his merry band of Kremlin trolls were not responsible as well? Absolutely not. There can be many people we blame over and over and over again so we never have to accept the reality of what happened in this country.
Read the rest....
Debra Messing and Neera Something Terrible are giving Susan Sarandon shit on Twitter and blaming her for Trump being president and not Hillary. This is so ridiculous because Herheinous got 3 million more votes than Trump did, but her campaign and her supporters want to blame Susan and Russia for her loss.
The question is “Would we have children in cages BUT FOR Trump.” If you say yes, you are being willfully ignorant. A celebrity Campaigning for a 3rd party candidate even when Bernie saw the danger of a racist, misogynistic Trump and said “You must vote for Hillary” shows https://t.co/yZuCryrsqn

This image is from 2014, during Obama’s presidency. If you didn’t know about it back then, you weren’t alone. But it has since gotten widespread media attention so there’s no excuse not to know now. https://t.co/PG0EELSJrh pic.twitter.com/BTWIppLRaZ

On a side note I got put in Twitter jail tonight for calling Debra the Jane Curtain name and Hillary a warmonger and whore for the banks. Not sure which one did it.
