  • Susan Sarandon Talks About The Hate She Got From Hillary Supporters

The 71-year-old actress initially supported Hillary in 2001, but backed Bernie Sanders for the position of POTUS in 2016.

She said: "Some of the women who have come forward have had other men, equally severe and can not go through it again". He tried really hard about health care.

Sarandon also said "some of my gay friends were like, 'Oh, I just feel bad for [Clinton].' And I said, 'She's not authentic".

"I got from Hillary people, "I hope your crotch is grabbed", 'I hope you're raped, '" she tells The Guardian, referring to Trump's infamous 2005 hot-mic video in which he says he can get away with grabbing women's genitals because he's a TV star.

When the interviewer noted that it seemed "absurd" to claim that issues such as taxation, healthcare, childcare and immigration wouldn't be far different under a Clinton presidency, Sarandon answered that Hillary would have just done things "sneakily" like Obama did. "You are responsible for this!'" Furthermore, when asked if she was upset by the attacks, Sarandon suggested that it was more upsetting to her "from the point of view of thinking they [the Democrats] haven't learned". "I think of myself as a humanist, because I think it's less alienating to people who think of feminism as being a load of strident bitches", she quipped. "I said get your information, I'm going to vote for change, because I was hoping that Stein was going to get whatever percentage she needed - but I knew she wasn't going to make the difference in the election", Sarandon explained.

"It wasn't a protest vote".

The actress also pointed out that in the end she chose to vote third party candidate Jill Stein, but called on people to decide for themselves. "People are really hurting; that's how this guy got in".

Trump took Twitter on November 26 to also talk about the 2016 presidential election.

"All the fracking that's been going on, the pipelines were all there before Trump got in", she said (per TheWrap).

"Since the first day I took office, all you hear is the phony Democrat excuse for losing the election, Russia, Russia, Russia", the president tweeted. I don't think that's likely, though it is possible Putin would have been more aggressive against a Hillary administration because he evidently dislikes her.
