As we reported earlier today, Susan Sarandon spoke with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes on Monday night, and suggested Sanders supporters might not get behind Hillary Clinton if he doesn’t win the nomination:

She doesn’t [believe in] what Bernie believes in… Some people feel that she’s not authentic, that she’s a liar, so what difference does it make?

I think a lot of people are ‘sorry, I just can’t bring myself to [vote for Hillary]’…I don’t know…. I’m going to see what happens.

Some people feel Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately if he gets in then things will really, you know explode.

Some people feel that. If you feel it’s pragmatic to shore up the status quo right now then you’re not in touch with the status quo. The status quo’s not working.”

Her interview was immediately followed by an interview with Dan Savage, who was on the show to discuss Republicans‘ desire to push sweeping anti-LGBTQ “religious freedom bills.”

Nevertheless, he took the opportunity to voice his opinion on Sarandon’s comments:

Can I just say I’m for Bernie, or Hillary, or both. Come November I plan to vote for the Democratic nominee whoever it is, because the lesser of two evils is less evil, and I don’t think Donald will bring the revolution.”
