Ian Somerhalder Calls Donald Trump Election 'A Very Big Wake Up Call'

Ian Somerhalder is opening up about Donald Trump being elected the next President of the United States.

“What happened last Tuesday is a very big wake up call,” the 37-year-old Vampire Diaries star expressed at the 2016 WildAid Gala held on Saturday (November 12) at The Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco. “Effectively if we want to change anything in regards to environment, species or habitat conservation we now more than ever have to find the sound economics of conservation, regarding environment and species. As a populist, we’re never going to change anything without each other.”

Ian was joined by his wife Nikki Reed as well as John Corbett at the event, where he was honored with the prestigious Wildlife Champion Award, past recipients of which include Sir Paul McCartney and actress Maggie Q.

    Mr. Somerhalder should consider this a wakeup call that Americans now realize he and his cohorts are throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

    This man would have us vote for someone with a dismal, corrupt, abusive record, based on his myopic causes. He would have the citizens of America pour their hard-earned money down the global drain, financing ineffective absurd environmental policies. Collateral damage seems fine with him, or he seriously is ignorant to the fallout. He touts minor changes we all can make, which seem reasonable enough and makes him a warm and fuzzy messenger, while supporting broad-based flawed initiatives that
    tangibly deeply harm our citizens. He has no knowledge of the inner workings of how Americans feed their families. Elitists generally do not know or admit they are such, citing humble beginnings, while playing on yachts and requiring we all carpool to work.

    I did not like either candidate, but Mrs. Clinton can match Mr. Trump blow by blow in negatives, and indeed vastly surpass him with deficits in both character and credibility. Supporter of women, Mr. Somerhalder? Hilary is a brutal abuser of women, bringing down the full force of her destructive power on women she knew fully were telling the truth regarding her husband who was proven to be a sexual predator. Mrs. Clinton is an enabler and supporter of a sexual predator to this day.

    She was beyond inept as Secretary of State, and is part of the strong-arm political machinery that seeks to silence anyone who gets in her way, by any means possible – above the law. The Clintons are America’s long-standing political mafia family. Mr. Somerhalder would have this remorseless machine put into power with her sexual predator husband nodding and clapping. Mr. Somerhalder would do well to delve deeper into who these people are and the fallout of his vocal blind support.

    By the way, Mr. S, please let us raise our children and leave the indoctrination to someone better versed in all things who doesn’t request their donations. Anyone seen ‘The Tournament’? Probably not, but perhaps this actor should not be the messenger for much.
