Reports that Sandra Bullock defended President Donald Trump and urged former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to leave the United States in a recent interview are false. During the 2016 presidential election, the Oscar-winning actress did not publicly express her support for either candidate.
According to Snopes, the fake quote was used on several disreputable/clickbait news and entertainment websites, including US World Now, World Today 365, My Info News and Trump Times. Each headline contained the lengthy quote: Actress Sandra Bullock To Hillary Clinton: “If You Don’t Like Our President You Can Leave And Never Come Back Again, You Are One Jealous Woman Who Is Nothing To Compare With Trump, I Hope He Will Arrest You Soon,” which was nowhere to be found in the article itself.
Instead, the reports that used the fake quote copied nearly an entire People magazine article from 2015, in which the actress discussed her political views and opinions ahead of her new movie at the time, “Our Brand Is Crisis.”
In the interview, she explained that her political mindset was heavily influenced by her parents, which helped her learn “how to push the limits” given that they supported different political parties.
Sandra Bullock says she’s not “politically vocal” but rather that doesn’t mean she isn’t stubborn with regards to America’s authority.
“I simply need what’s best for our nation,” Bullock said amid a question and answer session for her new film, Our Brand Is Crisis, in Los Angeles on Friday.
Bullock, who plays Jane “Catastrophe” Bodine, a political strategist, in the up and coming motion picture, says her own particular perspectives are hued by her child Louis.
“I might want my rights spoke to and those of my child – exceptionally egotistical perspectives and I think every other person has them,” she says. “At the point when this film went along, it tagged along during a period that I was having that inner exchange with myself about who in our nation would venture out of their customary range of familiarity to help other people for more prominent’s benefit.”
The last two paragraphs of the People magazine article, however, were conveniently left out of the fake articles. The paragraphs, which add context to the entire article, read:
One politician who seemingly won’t get the star’s vote in the 2016 presidential election? Donald Trump.
“I don’t agree with that at all,” Bullock said of the candidate’s comments on Mexican-Americans. “That was not a statement that I can get behind. I don’t agree with that statement.”
Bullock never even mentioned Clinton in that interview and certainly did not defend Trump. She also noted, according to Variety, “Donald Trump doesn’t need advice — he’s doing fine just being Trump.” She never suggested, as another false report did, that Clinton should leave the country if she didn’t support Trump.
