Susan Sarandon retweets worst time at DNC meme: Accurate
'Accurate,' Sarandon wrote on Twitter
Susan Sarandon is not particularly enjoying her time at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.
On Monday night, a GIF posted by NowThisNews producer Ian McKenna of Sarandon shaking her head as audience members cheered around her began to go viral online. “Susan Sarandon is having literally the worst time at the [DNC],” McKenna wrote.
Forty-three minutes later, Sarandon retweeted the image with one word: “Accurate.” The actress also included the proper DNC hashtags.
Sarandon has been a vocal supporter of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders through the campaign, and has made her disdain with his opponent, presumed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, publicly known. Back in June, Sarandon said she believed, “in a way,” that Clinton was more dangerous than Republican nominee Donald Trump.
“Her record — I mean, she did not learn a thing from Iraq. She is an interventionist. She’s done horrible things, horrible things, and very callously,” she said. Despite her feelings on Clinton, Sarandon has said she would “never support Trump for any reason.”
Speaking to EW in an earlier interview, the 69-year-old star said she felt it was sexist for people to believe women should vote for Clinton because of their gender.
“That’s been hugely disappointing, especially when it’s done by people who you think are feminist icons. That they would be that out of touch of where we are today,” Sarandon said. “This is why young girls have had this discussion of even using the word feminist. And now are starting to come around and are rebranding the word feminist, which had such a negative connotation for so long. Those gals are way past, ‘This is what you do because you’re a woman. Don’t you want to support a woman?’ Then I would be supporting Sarah Palin across the board.”
