Susan Sarandon – “Hillary Clinton would have been ‘very dangerous’ as president”

Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took a double-barrelled blast —  from the left and the right —  in broadsides from Hollywood lefty Susan Sarandon and war hero Sen. John McCain.

Clinton, who has been on a year-long woe-is-me tour since losing the election to Donald Trump, got hammered first by Sarandon, who said the consummate Democratic Party insider would have been “very dangerous” if she had won.

“I don’t mind that quote. I did think she was very, very dangerous. We would still be fracking, we would be at war (if she was president).,” Sarandon told The Guardian.

“It wouldn’t be much smoother. Look what happened under (Barack) Obama that we didn’t notice … She would’ve done it the way Obama did it, which was sneakily.”

The 71-year-old Bull Durham star supported Clinton in 2001 but backed outsider Bernie Saunders for the Democratic nomination.

Sarandon also revealed she was a pariah for a time for not supporting Clinton in the hotly-contested presidential race. It got so bad she had to change her phone number.

“I got from Hillary people ‘I hope your crotch is grabbed’, ‘I hope you’re raped.’ Misogynistic attacks,” Sarandon told the newspaper. “Recently, I said ‘I stand with Dreamers’ (children brought illegally to the U.S., whose path to legal citizenship Trump has threatened to revoke) and that started another wave … from the left! ‘How dare you! You who are responsible for this!’”

Meanwhile, McCain, a former GOP presidential candidate, told Esquire magazine that Clinton should shut up about the 2016 election.

“What’s the f—— point? Keep the fight up? History will judge that campaign, and it’s always a period of time before they do. You’ve got to move on,” he told the magazine.

“This is Hillary’s problem right now: She doesn’t have anything to do.”

McCain added: “One of the almost irresistible impulses you have when you lose is to somehow justify why you lost and how you were mistreated: ‘I did the right thing! I did!’ The hardest thing to do is to just shut up.”

In her memoir on the bitter campaign, What Happened, the former secretary of state lambastes everyone for her loss — including herself. But most of the criticism was reserved for Sanders and former FBI Director James Comey.
