Zoe Saldana Blames Hollywood Bullies for Trump Election


Actress Zoe Saldana explains how Hollywood bullies propelled Donald Trump to the White House...

Saldana tells Yahoo News
"We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies."
"We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong... and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises."

She's not wrong. Hard to accept, but that a true statement. All we heard was how Clinton "had it in the bag" and we all know "certain" segments of the American populous hate "being told what to do." They have a history of voting against their own interests, and Trump swept right in to seduce them. They like "simple" language and the DNC took appealing to them for granted and thought Black would turn out (even though she didn't put together a cogent platform addressing the financial and civil rights issues we were looking for) and assumed Latinos would vote for her (forgetting they will ALWAYS side with a white man and would never align themselves or identify as people of color because they so desperately want to be white.)

All the hacks in the world can't stop a landslide and if the DNC weren't so cocky, we'd be facing a different world than what's coming after Friday. An L is an L. He's going to be president and I hope the DNC leans something from this.

Donald Trump is a textbook example of a bully. He is a misogynist, a racist, a draft dodger, and a liar. And he was like this long before he decided to run for president.

@lyn Exactly, a juvenile text book bully that doesn't need anyone to run to his defense bcuz he's gonna handle every persons attack on Twitter. Zoe is having flashbacks about being bullied on social media when she stepped into the Nina Simone role....
Anyone that defends this con artist, lying bully will pay in social media & go check out her IG & Twitter....bitch got thousands of chairs in her comments #haveseveralseats

8:10, you're correct, but the first commenter and Zoe Saldana also correct. It's not about facts, it's about strategy and gamesmanship. Whatever Trump's faults, Black people need to sit this discussion out. We have other things to worry about like planning what we're going to do. White people always side with white people so let them argue with Trump because they'll fall in line and be friends later. We be accused of edition and undermining democracy.

Which makes Hollywood hypocrites because Trump has been this way for DECADES and no one denounced him when he had his tv shows and his gaudy ass casinos popping up everywhere.

Yes Zoe, it's your fault (and Hollywood's fault).

These Hollywood people need to keep their public opinions to themselves. Talk script, music, plays, movies, etc and maybe someone will care what you say.

Is she talking about they swayed the electoral college votes in his favor? Reality is he is only the 5th president that has ever won presidency by winning the electoral college vote vs popuplar vote (who the people voted for)!!

That's the thing people don't care anymore. That's why you see all these celebs trying to get politically involved, nothing or no one in entertainment is really exciting anymore.

All these freaks need to step back, let Hilary Clinton pay for her damn crimes, and the hate that follows her. The hate follows her husband too, and for good reason. They ran the most GOP administration in this generation. No one wanted her; she wanted to be the first woman president. She lost to a man hated more than she was. None of the Russian tricks would have worked against Bernie Sanders. Sure, he would have lost the south... But, he would have crushed Trump in most other areas.
This election was lost because the Dems forced an unwanted, so folks stepped out.
No amount of Hollywood not talking or talking would fix her issues; lets move on and NOT force another selfish ass BLUEDOG.
Why would the Dems push a fake Dem? Nobody is playing with that bullsht, but our unthinking brothers and sisters.
Broke my heart to see so many Black faces giving her dap instead of Bernie.

Peace...

I sure hope they allow the people who vote to choose! Somehow I don't see Oompa letting this bill pass nor paying attention to the growing petition to get rid of it. Either way we are stuck with the ugly ass orange Anti-Christ that is ready to further divide the nation!

He is a narcissistic, incompetent, inexperienced, bigoted racist at heart and NOTHING will change that!

You're exactly right. Zoe needs to educate herself on HOW Trump won. More people voted against him than for him. She should also ask herself why those people empathized more with a racist, immature, misogynist rather than the people he targeted.

Ms. Saldana can just shut the fuck up. I was done with her a few years ago when she said don't call her Black or a Black Actress she is a Latina an should be called so. BUT she steady keep going for/accepting Black roles. You don't want to be called Black then you shouldn't have gone after the Lt. Uhura role in Star Trek and you should not have accepted the offer to play Nina Simone and put on Black Face. So sick of her.
