Another leftist calls for the country to be “cleansed” of Trump supporters.
The actor Will Smith thinks Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy is a good thing for America.
He believes that the country can cleanse itself from Trump and his supporters.
At the press event in Dubai promoting his latest movie Suicide Squad, the 47-year old actor Will Smith said that it’s important to speak out about the insanity of the 2016 presidential race. “As painful as it is to hear Donald Trump talk and as embarrassing as it is as an American to hear him talk, I think it’s good. We get to know who people are and now we get to cleanse it out of our country,” he said.
According to our source, Conservative Post, he said that his appearance in Dubai was itself a rebuke to “Islamophobia” in America. “In terms of Islamophobia in America, for me that’s why it’s important to show up. The Middle East can’t allow Fox News to be the arbiter of the imagery, you know. So cinema is a huge way to be able to deliver the truth of the soul of a place to a global audience,” he added.
Will Smith has increasingly spoken up in opposition to Trump’s candidacy in recent weeks. In a recent interview the actor said that a “separatist, non-inclusive, racist, xenophobic wave” is sweeping the globe and pulling society further apart. “For a man to be able to publicly refer to a woman as a fat pig, that makes me teary. My grandmother would have smacked my teeth out of my head if I had referred to a woman as a fat pig. And I cannot understand how people can clap for that. It’s absolutely collective insanity,” Smith stated.
He also appeared on The Tonight Show last month, where he expressed hope that the country could undergo a similar cleansing as racist incidents are increasingly captured on film across America. “When everything gets out, it’s a good thing. It just sucks bad when the truth is out. But I think everybody can see it now. And I think it’s just a little darkness before the cleansing that we’ll have as we move forward.”
