Politics 2019: Oscar Nominee Ellen Page Slams President Trump

Oscar nominee Ellen Page (Juno) gave an impassioned speech on “The Late Show,” blasting President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for their anti-LGBTQ policies.

 

She emphasized how those policies affect the experiences of marginalized people.

“Connect the dots, this is what happens,” she said, referring to Smollett’s attack while holding back tears. “If you are in a position of power and you hate people and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering — what do you think is going to happen? Kids are going to be abused, and they’re going to kill themselves and people are going to be beaten on the street.”

“It feels impossible not to feel this way right now with the president and the vice president Mike Pence, who wishes I could not be married, let’s just be clear,” she said.
