In an interview with New York Daily News, Sarandon says she is worried that Pope Francis will be assassinated while on his U.S. visit.
I think they’re going to assassinate him. I think he’s done some major, major cleansing of the whole system…I love this Pope. He’s humble . . . he doesn’t live in the palatial whatever. I think he’s a Pope of the people.
She also talks about Donald Trump:
I think people are really starved for something authentic and even though he has no idea specifically what he’s talking about. He speaks to the guy who wishes he could say, ‘Everything’s a mess, we’re tired of the machine, we’re tired of politics as usual.’ . … I think it’s great that the Republicans have to figure out how to deal with him, it’s interesting.
And says she supports Bernie Sanders, and says she does not like it when people dismiss him:
Everybody said that about Obama. It’s like, the laziest way to do politics as usual. To just say, ‘Oh, well, he can’t get elected’. I think at least he’ll make some very unexpected dialogue in the debates.
