Susan Sarandon clarifies she ‘would never support Trump’

“LOL that I would ever vote (Donald) Trump,” Susan Sarandon tweeted Tuesday evening.

After an eyebrow-raising interview that seemed to imply she might be resigned to Team Trump, Susan Sarandon clarified her comments amid criticism from fellow celebs.

“LOL that I would ever vote (Donald) Trump,” the staunch Bernie Sanders supporter tweeted Tuesday evening. “Of course I would never support Trump for any reason. If you watch the interview you’ll see that’s not what I said.”

When asked during a recent MSNBC sit-down how she would vote if Hillary Clinton faced off with the thin-skinned tycoon in the general election, Sarandon had replied, “I don’t know; I’m going to see what happens … Really.”

She also noted that many believe Trump will “bring the revolution immediately.”

“If he gets in, things will really explode,” she told host Chris Hayes.

But the actress on Wednesday was quick to point out to her skeptics — among them Jamie Lee Curtis and “Will and Grace” star Debra Messing — that her Sanders devotion and Clinton aversion didn’t make her a Trump stumper.

“For those passionate, principled independents & first-time voters who would not be voting if it weren’t for Sanders & whose interests HC doesn’t represent, it is a dilemma,” she wrote.

Messing, however, maintained that she’d watched the interview — and that Sarandon should’ve chosen her words more carefully.

“I was horrified. ‘I don’t know.’ ABSOLUTELY implies support for Trump,” she wrote. “I hope she is clear from now on when she is doing interviews.”

“Your voice is powerful and influential. You not clearly disavowing Trump implies that u consider him (vs Hillary),” she later added.

Sarandon, who has accompanied Sanders on the campaign trail in recent months, told Hayes she sees the crusading Vermont senator as the “morally consistent” presidential candidate.

“I really want to be on the right side of history, and this is a shot that we’re not going to have again in my lifetime,” she said.
