It’s a pretty well known fact that Hillary Clinton uses Hollywood as her personal piggybank and most celebrities tend to lean left. I wish I could say it was a surprise that a major celebrity came out against Donald Trump, but when Hillary Clinton hangs out with you every weekend you probably have to show your loyalty.
Brad Pitt recently had an interview with and in this interview covered a wide range of topics which just so happened to include Trump’s presidential run.
What Brad Pitt said about Donald Trump and his supporters was uncalled for and will surely hurt him in the box office.
Brad Pitt had a lot to say …
“I can’t bring myself to think that Trump will be in charge,” Pitt said. “In the simplest terms, what brings us together is good, and what separates us is bad.”
“When things are going wrong and we can’t find the reason for it, we just start creating enemies,” he continued, referencing a line from the movie “The Big Short.”
It appeared that Pitt tried to save face a little later on in the interview when he said, “Coming from Oklahoma, southern Missouri, which leans more toward a Trump voice, I try to understand it.”
If Pitt understood it, he wouldn’t be bashing people and supporting Hillary Clinton.
Pitt went on to say,
“It seems that the people who suffer the most end up betting for the party that would hurt them and so I try to understand where they’re coming from.”
“You gotta understand, that it’s also in our DNA,” Pitt continued. “Most Americans don’t have time to watch CNN and Fox and Al Jazeera. They’re trying to make the rent, get the kids fed, they’re tired when they get home and they want to forget about everything. And so suddenly when this voice comes in — and it doesn’t have to be a voice of substance — saying he’s fed up with all of this, that’s the part that hooks into the DNA.”
“A Trump supporter is fighting against just about everything,” he added. “What does he even mean, take our country back? Would someone please explain that to me? Where’d it go?”
