Comedian Sarah Silverman Admits How She Really Feels About Trump Voters – It’s Surprising

Though she has emerged as one of President Donald Trump’s more outspoken celebrity opponents, comedian Sarah Silverman recently said she has a much more compassionate view of the millions of Americans who voted for him.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she credited her new Hulu series, “I Love You, America,” with sparking the change in her perception of Trump supporters.

Silverman said she makes a point in the series to sit down for conversations with Americans who have views very different from her own progressive ideology.

Through that process, she said she has encountered a number of Trump voters on a personal basis, which has given her a different perspective.

“When you’re one-on-one with someone who doesn’t agree with you or whose ideology is different than yours, when you’re face to face, your porcupine needles go down,” Silverman admitted.

During her discussions with pro-Trump guests, she invariably “fell in love with them.”

She said she has “had a great time with them” and believes the experience was a comfortable one for all involved.

“I’m trying to be open,” she said of her motivation for the series, insisting that it is “almost always a good experience” to engage with those who have different beliefs and values.


“Because more than anything, all of us, what we have in common is we want to feel seen,” she said. “We want to feel like we exist.”

Kind words for Trump’s supporters, however, do not extend to the president himself.

“We’re waiting for him to hit bottom,” she said. “There’s no bottom. It’s bottomless.”

The interview ended with Silverman describing how she would like to see Trump leave office.

“With no hair or makeup,” she said.

Silverman has previously acknowledged some common ground she shares with many conservatives who felt President Barack Obama presented a danger to the nation.

Following Trump’s election, she recalled experiencing the same concerns.

“In an instant, I basically became a liberal doomsday prepper,” she said.

Early on in the Trump administration, she described feeling “an actual kinship to the far-right militia person who thought Obama would end the world.”
