Susan Sarandon said the Democratic National Committee is “completely corrupt.”
On Thursday, the 70-year-old actress came out against the DNC in an interview on CNN and called the organization “gone” following revelations in leaked DNC emails that proved they overwhelmingly favored Hillary Clinton over her candidate Bernie Sanders during the primaries.
“After my experience in the primary, it’s very clear to me the DNC is gone,” Sarandon told the anchor. “It’s completely corrupt and every superdelegate is a lobbyist. The way that the system is set up in terms of trying of having superdelegates — you could win a state and not get the delegates. It’s crazy.”
“Look, Bernie has said ‘don’t ever listen to me if I tell you how to vote,’” Sarandon added when the anchor asked if she still holds Sen. Bernie Sanders in high regard even though he supports Clinton.
