Susan Sarandon really stepped in it now
Susan Sarandon made the unforgivable mistake of pointing out an undeniable fact.
Speaking at the Cedar County for Bernie Ice Cream Social, Sarandon indirectly called out Warren's past as a registered Republican.
"He is not someone who used to be a Republican," Sarandon said of Sanders. "He is not someone who used to take money — or still takes money — from Wall Street. He is the real deal.”
Obviously only someone that hates America would say something like that, and all of the Democratic Party establishment has come down on her like a ton of bricks.
"Sarandon doesn't hold a candle to 'former Republican' Elizabeth Warren on advancing Democratic causes," fired back Brandon Friedman.
"Like congratulations, you've been a Democrat longer," he added. "You also took a blowtorch to your Democratic membership card in 2016 and caused genuine harm. So please spare us the lectures."
It takes some serious gall to try to shade someone for being a Republican years ago when you yourself habitually waste your vote on the Green Party, thus handing the election to a Republican horror show of an administration.

He’s also never been a Democrat, except during the specific times he is running for president, so not sure how this is a useful argument. I would be (mildly) interested In knowing if this particular celebrity still thinks Trump is a better president than Clinton would have been. https://t.co/vSM1TBSguh

Oh, the woman who insulted Hillary voters by saying they were voting with their vaginas and then urged everyone to vote for Jill Stein. https://t.co/anNSIc8Uzx

However, there are still some America-hating leftists that have come to Sarandon's defense.
The people who lost a presidential campaign to Donald J. Trump should’ve been forced out of politics. At minimum, they should’ve accepted responsibility. Instead, they’re now approaching their third anniversary of blaming everyone but themselves, from Russia to Susan Sarandon: https://t.co/Le9bTmjx7C

Counterpoint: you’re not helping the movement to stop Trump by sitting in your office at your corporate funded think tank and tweeting absurdly silly insults at Susan Sarandon https://t.co/eknaaKq2ZC
