  • Mary Trump called Susan Sarandon a “complete idiot” who “thinks she’s a wise shaman.”

  • Trump was criticizing recent comments by the actress suggesting that there is no point in voting Democratic.

  • “A vote for Republicans is a vote for fascism,” Trump said.

Former President Donald Trump’s niece, Mary Trump, called actress Susan Sarandon a “complete idiot” for suggesting there’s no point in voting Democratic.

“She is a complete idiot. She doesn’t know what she’s talking about, and if anyone can seriously say that the Democrats are the problem, I don’t know what to tell them,” Trump said while appearing on Podcast Thursday.

“She was pretty decent in a couple of movies a couple of decades ago, but politically she’s an idiot,” Trump said.

Sarandon, who has a long history of left-wing activism, has become increasingly critical of the Democratic Party. In a recent Cheep, the actress accused them of “sitting on their hands for the last two years” and “scare them into voting blue”.

“I can’t even tell you how much it makes me angry,” Trump said on the MeidasTouch Podcast. “She’s an idiot, but she thinks she’s a wise shaman or something.”

Trump said the actress is a victim of the “Dunning-Kruger effect,” a cognitive bias in which people with low ability overestimate their abilities.

“If we can make it as simple as possible, a vote for Republicans is a vote for fascism,” Trump said.

Trump appeared on the podcast to discuss the US Supreme Court’s leaked draft vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, the historic ruling that protects the right to abortion.

Sen. Mitch McConnell said Saturday that a national abortion ban would be “possible” if Roe v. Wade. Trump said the only way to stop the anti-abortion push was to prevent them from winning Congress in the November midterm elections.

Mary Trump criticized the draft opinion on abortion, noting that the Supreme Court has a majority of GOP-appointed justices.

He also criticized the proposed wave of restrictive abortion legislation in several Republican-led states, some of which allow families and friends of rapists to sue a rape victim for having an abortion, such as in Tennessee and Idaho.

“These laws that are being passed, and now that the Supreme Court is federalizing them, they’re not just pro-incest, they’re pro-rapist… When your rapist has more rights than you, that seems problematic to me,” he said. .

Several Republican senators would not confirm whether they support the rape and incest exceptions to abortion bans, Insider previously reported.
