Salma Hayek’s smackdown vs. Donald Trump will make you love him even more
Salma Hayek has harsh words for Donald Trump.
The Hollywood star spoke on Friday during a meeting with the Los Angeles Times to promote his new animated feature film, The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. Asked about the Republican billionaire favorite in the presidential election and his comments on immigration, the Mexican star did not spare his efforts.
“It’s a very simple tactic for self-promotion,” she told the Los Angeles Times, add:
“What’s sad is how easily people are manipulated. I’m not insulted because I can’t be insulted by stupidity. Everyone has the right to have uninformed opinions. the world has the right to be stupid. But I’m not stupid, so I see through manipulation. We have something to learn from this is that educated people or people with great human values should wake up because they have the illusion that most of this country is like them and sometimes they won’t even vote. “
Hayek appeared to refer more specifically to Trump’s presidential announcement on June 16, when the now Republicanfavorite denounced Mexican undocumented immigration to the United States, labeling offenders rapists, criminals and drug traffickers.
The remarks led to the first wave of public denunciations of Trump by activists. The Spanish-speaking network Univision fall his broadcast of Trump’s Miss USA pageant, NBC denied Celebrity Apprentice, Macy’s forced out his Trump mensware line, Trump learned that his hotels had been challenged aggression by pirates, piñatas and anal plugs in his image has taken the Internet by storm. NASCAR has moved an award ceremony initially intended for a Trump hotel in Miami in protest.
The impact of his position on immigration and other shutters, however, seems to have only bolstered the billionaire’s momentum.
On Monday, Trump skipped a candidates forum aired by C-SPAN which 14 other candidates attended, meaning all eyes will be on his performance Thursday in the first official Republican debate on Fox News. As the nine other candidates who will stand by his side feverishly prepare, Trump spent the weekend in Scotland to attend the British Women’s Open at its Trump Turnberry complex. The candidate, who should take center stage, took every opportunity to minimize expectations, saying that he is “not a debater” and that he would be not even prepare for the big night.
“He’s not scripted,” Trump adviser Roger Stone Told the Daily call. “No one puts words in his mouth.”
