Sarandon Is More Scared Of Clinton’s War Record Than Trump’s Wall

During an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," Susan Sarandon remarked she was more afraid of Clinton's warmongering than Trump's main foreign policy initiative.

Susan Sarandon is still not convinced Hillary Clinton is any better than notoriously xenophobic Donald Trump. 

During an appearance on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Wednesday night, the actress opened up about why she had to “break up” with the Democratic front-runner.

Sarandon gave a myriad of reasons as to why she (like most Americans) can’t trust Clinton, from her support of the decision to invade Iraq to her damaging environmental policies.

She then went on to discuss her unwavering admiration for Clinton’s opponent Bernie Sanders.

“If you Google his speech, it’s just so clear against the war — at a time, you know, gay rights, before it became easy,” Sarandon told Colbert. “He’s always there before it becomes simple. You need somebody who has the moral judgment beforehand, not when it’s safe.”

Yet during her praise for Sanders, the talk show host grilled her on her former comments regarding Clinton vs. Trump.

“Wait a minute — I said some people say (Trump would bring the revolution immediately),” Sarandon retaliated. “I’m more afraid of, actually, Hillary Clinton’s war record and her hawkishness than I am of building a wall, but that doesn’t mean that I would vote for Trump.”

Sarandon thankfully clarified her previous statement, that no, she wouldn’t vote for the bigoted candidate, but she failed to elaborate on why she isn’t the least bit concerned about Trump’s controversial foreign policy plans.
