Jennifer Lawrence on why she’s now a Democrat: ‘I used to be voting towards my very own rights’

Jennifer Lawrence desires to make clear her voting report.Lawrence captured headlines final week when she revealed on Heather McMahan’s Absolutely Not podcast she “was a little Republican” rising up. The Oscar winner issued a press release Tuesday to make it identified she’s now a “proud” Democrat.“I grew up in a republican family and voted for John McCain in 2008, but through Obama’s presidency, and growing up to realize I was voting against my own rights, I am proud to say I am a democrat,” Lawrence, 30, shared on Twitter.The Kentucky-born actress, who beforehand supported Hillary Clinton, opened as much as McMahan about how her politics have modified over the past 12 years. “I grew up Republican,” she defined. “My first time voting, I voted for John McCain.”Lawrence informed the comic, “I was fortunate to grow up in a Republican house where I can see the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies, and I can also see that the social issues weren’t in line with my views.”Jennifer Lawrence, who has voted each Republican and Democrat, points assertion about her political stance.

This is an impeached president whose broken many laws and has refused to condemn white supremacy, and it feels like there has been a line drawn in the sand,” Lawrence added. “I don’t want to support a president who supports white supremacists.”Although Lawrence didn’t vote for President Trump 4 years in the past, she understood why so many individuals did in her home state.“Here’s a big powerful man in a nice suit, pointing at you and going, ‘I’m going to make you rich.’ It’s so appealing,” she informed Vanity Fair in 2018. “The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me. Of course they’re not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they’re going to vote for Donald Trump. You laughed at them when their plight is very real.”Story continuesIt’s no shock, then, who Lawrence is voting for within the 2020 presidential election.“I’m voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this year because Donald Trump has and will continue to put himself before the safety and well-being of America,” Lawrence informed V journal. “He does not represent my values as an American, and most importantly as a human being.”Read extra from Yahoo Entertainment:
