The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence is no stranger to Twitter, wait, maybe she is. The Oscar-winning actress joined Wednesday’s episode of the Dear Media Absolutely Not podcast, where she opened up to host Heather McMahan about what made her change her mind as she’s gotten older.
“I grew up Republican. My first time voting, I voted for John McCain. I was a little Republican,” Lawrence, 30, said.
The X-Men star said her upbringing allowed her to “see the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies” as well as realize “the social issues weren’t in line with her views.”
As Lawrence grew older, however, she said it changed her views on politics based on the things she had learned.
If nothing else, she said what “changed everything” was when “Donald Trump got elected.” She voted for John McCain rather Barack Obama, and Twitter had a lot to say about that.

As Lawrence grew older, however, she said she “changed her views on politics based on the things she learned.”
If nothing else, she said what “changed everything” was when “Donald Trump got elected.”
Referring to some of the biggest scandals of Trump’s time in office while he insists he’s been unfairly targeted by critics Lawrence said: “This is an impeached president who’s broken many laws and has refused to condemn white supremacy, and it feels like there has been a line drawn in the sand. I don’t think it’s right … it just changes things for me.”
During the first presidential debate, last month, Trump demurred when moderator Chris Wallace asked him to clearly disavow white supremacist groups. The president has a history of waffling on such issues.
When Democratic opponent Joe Biden suggested he renounce the Proud Boys, a far-right fringe group associated with violence, Trump said, “Proud Boys, stand back and stand by.”
“I don’t want to support a president who supports white supremacists,” Lawrence said on McMahan’s podcast.
Earlier this month, Jennifer endorsed Biden and Sen. Kamala Harris, his running mate, in the rapidly approaching 2020 presidential election,
“I’m voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this year because Donald Trump has and will continue to put himself before the safety and well-being of America,” Jennifer then said. “He does not represent my values as an American, and most importantly as a human being.”
