Actor Samuel L. Jackson said Sunday that he is backing Hillary Clinton for president next year because Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has no chance of winning the White House.
“I’m forever a Democrat, you know, and I’m gonna vote for Hillary,” he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“I mean, I love Bernie — Bernie’s a man of the people — but he can’t win,” Jackson continued. "So I gotta cast my vote for a person that can keep those other people from winning, okay?"
Jackson argued that Clinton’s past political experience gives her a significant edge over other White House hopefuls from both parties.
“Hillary kind of knows the job — she can hit the ground running,” the movie star said of the Democratic presidential front-runner. "She doesn’t have a huge learning curve like [President Obama] had or some other people had.”
“Hopefully she can open up the skeletal files on these do-nothing assholes that go to work like four times a year and not vote on things and threaten them with whatever she and [former President Bill Clinton] uncovered on them years ago and make them do something and we can get something done.”
Jackson who is a frequent golf partner with Donald Trump had this to say about the GOP front runner:
“[Trump is running on] hate,” Jackson said of the GOP front-runner. "There’s absolutely nothing I can do."
“There are some other people that aren’t as open about what he’s saying that are running also, you know, that are just as crazy,” the performer said of the GOP’s 2016 field.
Sounds like Jackson knows his politics.
Now I am really wishing that Jackson would show up at a Trump rally all decked out in his Jules Winnfield costume from the movie Pulp Fiction and when confronted just launches into his soliloquy from the movie:
"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy My brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay My vengeance upon you."
Then we will just see how tough these lily white Trump supporters are for reals.
My guess is that there will be lot of soiled pairs of underwear in that group.
