Sarah Silverman is a hardcore leftist who strongly opposed President Trump’s 2016 campaign. Over the past 18 months, she has said some pretty derogatory things about Trump supporters, but she seems to be changing her tune a bit after meeting some of them in person.
Yes, when she actually spoke to some of them face to face, she realized that we’re NOT the “monsters” that CNN and the liberal media makes us out to be.
According to the Daily Caller, Silverman said she “fell in love” with the handful of Trump supporters who contributed to her new political show titled “I Love You America”.
Here’s more from the Daily Caller report:
“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,” the 46-year-old liberal comedian told the Hollywood Reporter. Her series on Hulu is titled “I Love You America.”
“The surprise was … I fell in love with them,” she added. “I had a great time with them, and I felt comfortable. I’m trying to be open.”
“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,” she continued. “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.”
In one episode, Silverman sits down to dinner with a family that voted for Trump. She says no one’s minds were changed, but they found they didn’t have to “be divided to disagree.”
“Did we change each others’ minds? Um, f– no,” Silverman said in the episode. “But we did learn that we don’t have to be divided to disagree. We can have fun. We can even love each other.”
Listen, I’m no fan of Sarah Silverman, but we have to give credit to liberals when they say something accurate. It would have been really easy for her to trash these Trump supporters even though they were nice and pleasant people.
However, she chose to tell the truth about her experience with him.
Although the liberal media paints us as violent racists, it’s stories like this that prove them wrong, and we need more of this!
