In the liberal world of Hollywood, Barack Obama is still worshipped by the masses. That’s why a reporter recently was stunned when he asked Hollywood A-lister Denzel Washington about the president, and got a response he was never expecting…
Conservative Tribune reported that just after last year’s election, a liberal reporter cornered Washington to ask him who he voted for. He was expecting Washington to give him the usual anti-Donald Trump liberal talking points, but that’s not what happened at all.
“Just wondering who you wound up supporting in the election and why?” journalist Nicholas Ballasy demanded on the red carpet for Washington’s movie “Fences.”
Washington tried to divert the question back to the movie, but when Ballasy continued to press him, he silenced him with a blunt answer.
“None of your business!” he stated emphatically.
After fumbling a bit, Ballasy pressed on and asked Washington about Obama specifically.
“Right now, under President Obama, over the last eight years, in your mind… have race relations improved under his leadership?” he asked.
Most actors would have taken this opportunity to lavish Obama with praise, but not Washington.
“Race relationships have to do with race relationships,” Washington fired back, making it clear that he doesn’t think Obama has anything to do with this. “You’re white, or whatever you are, and I’m black, or whatever I am — we’re standing here talking now. That’s how we get things done.”
“You can’t legislate love. The president of the United States can’t legislate us into liking each other,” he elaborated. “We have to step forward and ask questions about each other and engage. There’s no law that says, oh because I’m president, you all gotta get along now. So it’s up to us.”
We’re glad to see that Washington refused to submit to the liberal agenda and be just another Hollywood sheep. What do you think about what he had to say? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
