So how about that Bernie campaign? It sort of just fizzled out and came to a slow, awkward death… Then the Senator decided to come out in support of Clinton. Odd choice for an endorsement, right? Barring the fact that she’s incorrigible, she also represents everything he claims to hate about Washington. But hey, stranger things have happened. Like Chris Christie’s lips being surgically attached to Donald’s anus. Now Bernie voters have been put between a rock and a Hillary. Guess what they’re choosing? Not Hillary. Even leftist, pro-Bernie Viggo Mortensen doesn’t want her decrepit flabbiness in office.
Viggo was an outspoken Bernie Sanders supporter, but ever since the Bern’s final embers went out, he’s redirected his allegiance to Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Yes, Aragorn is no fan of Hillary Clinton.
“If you want a woman then vote for Jill Stein,” he says. “If you really want a woman president-if that’s what you want-vote for Jill Stein. I trust Hillary about as much as I trust Donald Trump. I think she’s dishonest, I don’t think she has the interests of working people at heart, and I think she’s shown that time and time again. All the things that Bernie Sanders said about her I agree with.”
I’d trust Viggo when it comes to recognizing evil. After all, he did lead a battle against the Dark Lord Sauron himself. Dude’s got Middle Earth street cred. Come on, you knew the Lord of the Rings references were coming, my precious.
Mortensen’s favorite candidate gave Hillary the stamp of approval and he still won’t have her. As seems to be the case with most Bernie supporters. They’ve been rather vocal about their distaste for Clinton (see Far Left Susan Sarandon: ‘Hillary Clinton cannot be trusted…’). Can you blame them? Negative. She’s an imp.
It’s a relief to see people denouncing her like this. You have to admit, Viggo brings up a good point: the issue of trust. Despite all her political string-tugging, despite all her clout, at the end of the day she can’t snap her bony fingers and magically force people to trust her. Which tends to happen when you disregard all notions of the law or moral accountability.
We here at LwC may disagree with most leftists on most things. But occasionally we find an issue on which we can all agree. That current issue happens to be the fact that we don’t want a power hungry, murderous, rape-cover-upper (ALLEGEDLY), menopausal old bag sitting in the Oval Office. In that arena, we find Viggo Mortensen agreeable. Also, his face. That’s agreeable too.
