Scarlett Johansson has been an outspoken Democrat for years. She first made an appearance at the 2012 Democratic National Convention where she gave a speech. She also endorsed Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign.
The Hollywood star has been very outspoken about president Trump. She spoke during the Women’s March in Washington back in January where she inspired millions with her heartfelt speech.
Recently Johansson spoke with Time Out New York where she expressed her thoughts on Donald Trump and what the administration has done so far.
“We’ve been kind of complacent,” Johansson told Time Out. “In the United States, we don’t have mandatory military service or a draft or anything like that, so people don’t necessarily think about voting, which in some other places is a life-and-death decision. Now it’s all catching up with us. It has brought us to this new administration, which is scary.”
She was also asked what he biggest fear is about the Trump administration:
“I’m most concerned about the environmental ramifications because that’s a clock you can’t turn back.”
She then added, “someone like Trump has been out of touch with the everyman for decades.”
Johansson also expressed her opinion as to why Trump got elected in the first place.
“Most people, when they were voting, were not thinking about the Supreme Court or the Senate or what it could mean for the next 20 years. They were just frustrated and wanted something different,” she said.
“Reform, yes, I’m for that. But being antigovernment altogether? That doesn’t make any sense. It’s ignorant and silly and frustrating. But there you have it — four years! Darkness is nigh.”
Still, she said, she’s here to “fight the good fight.”
