Jennifer Lawrence Reveals She Voted for John McCain in 2008
Jennifer Lawrence once voted red but has confirmed that she’s now a blue-blooded Democrat.
The actress said on the Absolutely Not podcast that she was a Republican before Trump entered the White House.
“I grew up Republican. My first time voting, I voted for John McCain,” she shared. “I was a little Republican.”
Jennifer was raised in Kentucky and added that she saw “the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies” but eventually realized the party’s social policies didn’t align with her views, so she “changed [her] politics based on the things [she] learned.”
“This is an impeached president who’s broken many laws, and has refused to condemn white supremacy,” she said of Trump, “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.”
Thanks for speaking out, Jennifer! Let’s hope everyone gets to the polls.
