Most Hollywood liberals support the Democratic Party without question, even if their policies are backwards and destroying this country.
Denzel Washington apparently didn’t get the memo and bashed former President Barack Obama in a recent interview.
At a recent press conference, a reporter asked Washington who he supported in the election.
“Just wondering who you wound up supporting in the election and why?” demanded journalist Nicholas Ballasy while on the red carpet.
“None of your business!” he stated, clearly annoyed at the question.
Conservative Tribune reports:
Instead of getting the message, the reporter continued to press the actor for his views on politics. “What issue do you hope president-elect Trump tackles? What’s number one, in your mind, with the new administration?”
The famous “Glory” and “Training Day” star gave a very smart response. “I don’t know,” he said. “You know, I’d have to be more informed to just say off the top of my head the number one issue.”
That honest answer seemed to be an indirect jab at the countless celebrities who run their mouths on political issues, while knowing almost nothing about the complex topics.
Ballasy wasn’t done, however. The brash reporter pressed Washington on race. “Right now, under President Obama, over the last eight years, in your mind… have race relations improved under his leadership?”
“Race relationships have to do with race relationships,” the actor explained, implying that the president had little to do with the topic.
“You’re white, or whatever you are, and I’m black, or whatever I am — we’re standing here talking now,” Washington continued. “That’s how we get things done.”
“There’s no law that says, oh because I’m president, you all gotta get along now,” the actor explained. “So it’s up to us.”
Washington summed it up very well and showed a lot of poise. Actors shouldn’t be relied on for political opinions and people shouldn’t vote for a candidate because their favorite actor is.
