Actor Viggo Mortensen Backs Green Party Candidate Jill Stein
Actor Viggo Mortensen, a vocal supporter of Bernie Sanders, threw his support behind the Green Party’s Jill Stein on Saturday.
Mortensen said he trusts Clinton “as much as I trust Donald Trump.”
“I think she’s dishonest, and I don’t think she has the interests of working people at heart, and I think she’s shown that time and again. All the things that Bernie Sanders said about her I agree with,” he said.
The Hill reports:
The actor vocalized his support for the progressive candidate in an interview with Democracy Now in November.
“I wish that Bernie Sanders would be president, for many reasons. I think in many ways he speaks truth to power,” he said.
“And I know the argument is, ‘Yes, if you vote for Jill Stein you’re giving Trump a chance.’ The Nader argument,” he said Saturday. “But you know, at some point it’s got to change. We should have a parliamentary system. It’s really got to change.”
