Susan Sarandon: Clinton ‘more dangerous’ than Trump

Actress Susan Sarandon says Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy makes her a greater national security risk than Donald Trump, adding that it’s “inevitable” the White House hopeful will be indicted.

“I believe in a way she’s more dangerous, except they’re both talking to Henry Kissinger apparently lately,” Sarandon told The Young Turks on Thursday.

“I don’t know if she’s overcompensating or what her trip is. I think we’ll be in Iran in two seconds. That scares me. That frightens me.”

Sarandon, who supports Bernie Sanders for president, said Trump’s ideas are too implausible to be dangerous.

“This is what we’re fed — ‘he’s so dangerous, he’s so dangerous,’ ” she said. “Seriously, I’m not worried about a wall being built and Mexico paying for it.

“He’s not going to get rid of every Muslim living in this country. Has he made it the norm to be racist and vent these kinds of things? Yes. But seriously, I don’t know what his policies are.”

On the other hand, Sarandon said, Clinton’s record on foreign policy is cause for alarm.

“I do know what her policies are. I do know where she’s taking money from. And I do know that she’s not transparent and I know that nobody calls her on it.”

Sarandon predicted in a separate interview that Clinton will ultimately face indictment for her use of a private email server while secretary of State.

“Nobody’s even talking about this indictment,” she told MSNBC. “What happens with that, besides the trust issue of catching her in so many lies?”

“Well, there has been no indictment,” Chris Jansing responded.

“No, but there’s going to be,” responded Sarandon. “I mean, it’s inevitable.”
