While filming her red-state-bashing Hulu series called “I Love You, America,” the always-obnoxious Sarah Silverman claims she “fell in love” with Trump supporters.
“When you’re one-on-one with someone who doesn’t agree with you, or whose ideology is different than yours, when you’re face to face, your porcupine needles go down,” Silverman told the Los Angeles-based Vulture Festival crowd over the weekend.
“The surprise was,” she said, “I fell in love with them. I had a great time with them and I felt comfortable.”
“I’m trying to be open,” continued Silverman. “I’m finding if I do engage with someone who is angry at me, or angry and I’m a place where they can put that anger … it’s almost always a good experience, because more than anything, all of us what we have in common is, we want to feel seen. We want to feel like we exist. We really should — all of us — work on not getting our self-esteem from outside forces, but it is so much when somebody just sees you. It’s just like, everything melts away. We just all just human out again.”
Silverman did, however, find time to bash President Trump.
“We’re waiting for him to hit bottom. There’s no bottom. It’s bottomless,” she said.
She fantasizes about Trump leaving the White House “with no hair or makeup,” added the actress.
Earlier this month, Silverman attempted to convey her connection to conservatives by revealing that she suffered from “survival-based fear” when Trump took office and became a “doomsday” liberal.
“In an instant, I basically became a liberal doomsday prepper,” she said. “And for the first time, I felt an actual kinship to the far-right militia person who thought Obama would end the world.”
“It’s that feeling of fear that makes us the same,” she added.
Of course, as noted by Daily Wire’s Emily Zanotti, conservatives didn’t react exactly like liberals; they didn’t scream at the sky and smash the windows of their local Starbucks, they won back both houses of Congress and then the White House without the “crippling fear and total lack of sanity that’s gripped outspoken Democrats.”
