Kerry Washington isn't here for Trump and criticizes the media coverage of his campaign








  • About Conway and Ivanka: “I think it’s important that we not be distracted by these very smart, very articulate, beautiful women who work in the Trump campaign, who are a lot smarter than the candidate. They will not have their finger on the button; he will."

  • About the role of the media: “Right now we are in a political climate where we are being led by the media, no offense, to vote for the loudest candidate, and the meanest, the bulliest candidate in the playground. We are voting based on a cult of personality or a cult of celebrity. [...] When people of color say [Hillary Clinton] is not doing enough for us, we have to do the work to dig, because the media is not spoon-feeding us the information we need to vote in our best interests."

  • About third party votes: "Voting for Trump is voting against ourselves. Not voting is voting against ourselves. And in this election, voting for a third candidate is voting against ourselves."

  • About Hillary Clinton's political history: "There may be things that you don't particularly agree with at some point. I know a lot of people of color and millennials talk about her position on the criminal justice reform. I hear that and I understand it. But I would rather vote for the candidate who is willing to address mistakes, address issues, take responsibility, be accountable, be a part of a change solution, rather than the candidate who chooses to continue to perpetuate fear and hate."

Queen.

ONTD, what are you going to do should Trump actually be elected in November? Will you stock up on food? Emigrate to New Zealand? Volunteer for that Mars mission?
