Actress Susan Sarandon has a message for all her fellow Bernie Sanders fans languishing under the inevitability of Hillary Clinton’s presidential nomination: don’t worry, because Clinton will be indicted:
Sarandon is among the “Bernie-or-bust” crowd on the Democratic side who don’t believe the nomination is out of reach for their candidate. Asked by MSNBC’s Chris Jansing about the daunting math that appears to guarantee Clinton will win the nomination, Sarandon implied the FBI investigation into her server at the State Department would lead to criminal charges.
“The numbers are really against him,” Jansing said.
“Well, except if you talk about superdelegates, and some of them have already changed their votes,” Sarandon said.
“He would need to flip more than 300, about 300 superdelegates. It would be beyond unprecedented,” Jansing said.
“It would be unprecedented, especially since so many of them are lobbyists for exactly the things that he’s against, but nobody’s even talking about this indictment,” she said. “What happens with that? Besides the trust issue of catching her in so many lies—”
“Well, there has been no indictment,” Jansing said.
“No, but there’s going to be,” Sarandon said.
“We don’t know that,” Jansing said.
“Well, we don’t know that he’s not going to get the numbers, either,” Sarandon replied.
If anything, this election has taught us all to believe that anything is possible. However, according to a Rasmussen poll released Tuesday, an astounding 71 percent of Democratic voters think Clinton should keep running for president even if she’s charged with a felony in connection to her private email server. In other words, it’s highly unlikely that an indictment will hurt her chances of winning the Democratic nomination.
Looks like Sarandon will be voting Trump.
