Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence says she was once “a little republican” in the years before Trump took office… going so far as to admit that she voted for John McCain in the 2008 election.
“I grew up Republican. My first time voting, I voted for John McCain. I was a little Republican.”
She says growing up she was able to “see the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies” as well as realize “the social issues weren’t in line with [her] views.”
As Lawrence grew older, however, she said she “changed [her] politics based on the things [she] learned.”
She now says Trump’s election changed everything for her, “This is an impeached president who’s broken many laws and has refused to condemn white supremacy, and it feels like there has been a line drawn in the sand. I don’t think it’s right … it just changes things for me.”
Earlier this month, she endorsed Joe Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris… so…. progress? God for her!
