Jennifer Lawrence Said President Donald Trump Would Be The End Of The World & Didn't Stop There
Jennifer Lawrence hasn't exactly been quiet about her views on social issues of late. She wrote an impassioned essay in October on Hollywood's gender pay gap that brought out droves of actresses and celebs in support of her sentiments. Clearly unafraid of expressing her opinion, J. Law decided a few weeks was enough time before breaking into another topic: politics. In an interview for the December issue of Vogue, Lawrence said a Trump presidency would be the end of the world. J. Law — a straight shooter if there ever was one.
That wasn't the only thing Lawrence had to say, providing a blistering shutdown of the GOP in general.
I was raised a Republican, but I just can't imagine supporting a party that doesn't support women's basic rights. It's 2015, and gay people can get married and we think that we've come so far, so yay! But have we? I don't want to stay quiet about that stuff.
Not a good sign when pretty much the coolest chick alive defects from your party because you can't even promote "basic rights."
It's at this point that Lawrence set the American public straight on her opinion of the leading GOP candidate. Having played the lead in The Hunger Games, J. Law knows an "end of the world" kind of situation when she sees one. But in this world, it's not a President Snow, but a President Trump that would mark the demise of life as we know it.
My view on the election is pretty cut-and-dried: If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world. And he's also the best thing to happen to the Democrats ever.
Lawrence also had a few words for Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples despite a court order requirement and federal law. Referring to Davis as the "lady who makes me embarrassed to be from Kentucky," Lawrence told Vogue not to even say Davis' name in her house. I wonder what the Oscar winner thinks of GOP presidential hopefuls Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee, who all came out in defense of Davis's decision.
Though it's more than clear that Lawrence won't be going with a Republican ticket in 2016 should Trump get the nomination, she has yet to make any formal endorsement of a candidate. Does she #FeelTheBern? Is Martin O'Malley right up her alley? (Sorry, couldn't resist.) Or is she all for four years of Hillary?
Maybe Lawrence will get a campaign going as a write-in candidate to put herself in the White House, Mockingjay style. That presidential age requirement always seemed kind of silly, anyway. Just let us know, J. Law. Our pens are ready.
