Susan Sarandon is being skewered on Twitter for saying that the Trump presidency has, in some ways, been good for America.
The “Feud” star, an outspoken Trump critic and Bernie Sanders supporter during the presidential election, stopped by “The Late Show” on Friday to address her previous comments about Trump inciting a political revolution in America.
“People are really awake now because the cracks have let the light in,” Sarandon told host Stephen Colbert, echoing comments she’s made since the election.
“Goldman Sachs has been in politics forever, and now we’re noticing because this guy is such a bozo that he’s just doing everything so badly that he’s not slick like everybody else,” she said. “I mean, all the fracking that’s been going on, the pipelines were all there before Trump got in. This has been going on, but now everybody’s awake, they’re energized, right? They’re calling their senators, they’re donating to all of these groups.”
