Zoe Saldana Thinks Trump Has Been Bullied by Hollywood

Zoe Saldana is not a supporter of President-elect Donald Trump, but she doesn’t exactly think he has been treated fairly by Hollywood.

The 38-year-old Live By Night actress has spoken out to explain that the way Trump was treated by Hollywood could have led to his victory in the election.

Click inside to read what Zoe Saldana said in the interview…

“We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies,” Zoe told AFP. “We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong… and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises.”

“I’m learning from (Trump‘s victory) with a lot of humility,” she added. “If we have people continue to be strong and educate ourselves and stand by equal rights and treat everyone with respect, we won’t go back to those times.”

    Hollywood’s the bully??? Is she insane? Someone call sick bay! Uhura’s gone nuts!

  • Guest

    l’m not a supporter either but she makes a good point. It’s obvious that his election was reactionary for several reasons; this could be one of them.

    Nobody bullied Donald Trump, they just actually listened to what he was saying and called him on it, that’s not the same thing. Half of peoples critique of Trump was just reading back the stuff he actually said or tweeted. Trump bullied the republican candidates, he bullied the media, he bullied muslims, he bullied immigrants. Calling a bully out for being a bully is NOT bullying.

    She is right though, the left did create empathy amongst those who shared his bully opinions. The fact is, he should have been ignored instead of engaged with because it only gave him more press and an even wider audience. The problem with the left is that they actually believed that people are mostly good and empathetic towards others and that may be the case under normal circumstances but when people backs are against the wall they become waaay more selfish and self centered and the rights of the “other” become less important. If people were in a better financial place they could care less about immigrants, illegal, or otherwise, and issues like a woman’s right to choose and gay-marriage/civil rights would have been more important.

    Trump is a big bully so I do not feel sorry for him when people call him out on his crap. However, she makes some good points, especially about the humility part.

    The left did get cocky during the election campaign and that backfired. At times, the left is its own worst enemy and becomes self-righteous – there’s been a lot of shameful name-calling and I’m not just by Donald Trump, but by those who stand against him. I’m talking about the abuse towards people that supported Trump. Like it or not, people have the right to support the political candidate of their choice, regardless of if the rest of us don’t like him for good reasons. Everyone should be respected and treated fairly.

    She’s spot-on about humility, which is something that is not only missing in Donald Trump but definitely in the left. Believing one is always right leads someone to act like a Donald Trump. We’re not always right but if we fight for causes with humility and respect for other human beings, then we may get somewhere. If you are protesting Trump by acting like Trump you are little better than he is.

  • FrenchGirl

    Don’t support or react negatively what he said about the immigrants,foreigners,the women,the no-white persons or the disabled persons is NOT bullying

  • Koos

    …think twice.

  • yllas

    Not only is the Bloated Orange Moron not at all hurt by Hollywood ‘bullying’, he is jumping on it, whining to his followers and getting sympathy. He is laughing, because this is just such great publicity and building up his fan base even more. Even if his coronation features a sh it kicker band, Marie Osmond, and three rockettes, it’s getting attention, like a car wreck.

  • Ash

    “Trump bullied the republican candidates, he bullied the media, he bullied muslims, he bullied immigrants.”

    Republican Candidates – When did he do that? He is strong-willed and outspoken but don’t misconstrue that for bullying.

    The Media – Who’s bullying whom here? The mainstream media was so biased and unfair toward him from the moment he announced he’s going to run for potus simply because they favored a crooked woman for that position. It’s no longer a secret, they’re happily doing it openly now so why would any man with self-respect give them free pass after what they’ve done to him?

    Muslims – He did not bully Muslims. He talked about how their religion was strongly correlated with extremism and frankly that’s the truth. Nobody’s is bullying Muslims more than their own extremists.

    Immigrants – He talked about ILLEGAL Immigrants and all of the serious problems they’ve caused based on reliable statistics. He has the courage to say it like it is but of course people would defame and call him racist, sexist, Islamophobe and etc. At this point, it’s getting stale and if the left can’t come out with valid reasons why he’s all of those, don’t even bother arguing because it’s pathetic and stupid to say the least.

    The title is a bit misleading and she does have some points, but at the end of the day Trump has not been bullied. He came out swinging and people reacted. It’s no secret that Hollywood is generally left leaning and they do have a very public platform, therefore you’re going to hear from them about this man and his policies.
    There are plenty of people though in all corners of our country who also do not agree with him.
    It’s important that we are not silent.

    He came out swinging against illegal immigrants. And outsourcing. And bad trade deals. He wasn’t swinging at any law abiding citizens.

    He’s not racist or a homophobe. Stop the lies.

    Believe it or not most people (Americans) aren’t really influenced by celebrity maybe the youth.. but adults tend to do the opposite of what celebrity tells us to do. That is what Zoe is saying. I agree that this could have been a determining factor or influenced in some way.

    I won’t be engaging, Shelby. If you can honestly look at and listen to Trump and see anything other than a person who is unstable and unfit to lead our country then nothing I say is going to change your mind.
    Good luck and have a good life.

    “Little Marco” “Lying Ted” Retweeting unflattering pics of Cruz’s wife….Namecalling is the go-to means of attack for most bullies.

    Did he not shout down a CNN reporter just a couple of days ago? Does he not deem any news organization not in the tank for him or the least bit objective, “biased” against him? Since when is researching a candidate’s claims and exposing the hypocrisies, flip-flopping, and untrue nature of what he said biased? they did that to ALL THE candidates, he just was the biggest crybaby when it happened to him. If you say something bigoted and someone reports on it and calls it what it is, that’s not bias, its truth.

    Did he not talk about basically criminalising a religion and creating muslim registries and banning people from a specific religion from entering the country????

    And as for immigrants, he has taken a few incidents and colored an entire people with them. The vast majority of mexican immigrants, legal, or not are too busy working hard to be committing mass crime.

    Face it, you have ZERO argument, Trump is everything the left says he is. I get it, you like him, you think that he can make your mediocrity “great” in a world where blacks, hispanics, women, and other minorities are breaking through walls and windows and doors and moving into spaces that used to be reserved for the “good ol’ boys” and you have even more competition. This too shall pass. In four years, hell, two with this impatient society the tide will turn and Trump will not even run again.

    If he cared anything out “outsourcing” he would not have been outsourcing his clothing business.

    Hollywood has bullied anyone who isn’t a Leftist for decades. They pulled their crap on Trump and got curb stomped because enough people got fed up with the garbage they push. I’m sick of Hollywood Leftists.

  • Michael Lemon

    They can’t stop lying because communism is a lie. Hollywood has been communist since it’s start and it’s never been purged.

  • Ash

    Yes he did shut that reporter down and it’s immensely satisfying to watch. Clearly you don’t understand when I said biased, what I meant was they were only attacking him full force and completely overlooked that crooked woman when most of us know that she has a lot of skeletons in her closet. Even more than him. They gave her a lot of free pass during that time and if that’s still not biased to you then clearly you don’t know the meaning of that word to begin with.

    What he said about Islam and Muslims was absolutely right! We have to be toughed and roughed and not be politically correct in order to handle this situation accordingly. It is our moral duty to look after our own people first and foremost, and only help others if it doesn’t potential harm our own. A country cannot survive without a well developed sense of self preservation. Something that the left doesn’t understand. This is coming from a former Muslim like myself – Radical Muslims are snakes and moderate Muslims are the grass they hide in. Remember that or you are meant to be doomed. One thing for sure, we will not let people like you drag us down and ignorantly open our country to mass of unassimilated immigrants.

    What are you talking about? Statistics don’t lie. Just make sure that it’s coming from reliable sources. With every hard working legal Mexican immigrant, there many more legal and illegal immigrants committing countless crimes every single day. It doesn’t matter if the illegals are doing hard working jobs, they are still inside this country illegally and that’s a crime on its own. Don’t talk about something you have no clue about. Do some proper research before blatantly wrote about something filled with misinformed statements. Logical fallacies everywhere.

    I have zero argument? Lol, nope! I think it’s more like you have zero capacity of understanding facts and reality. Trump is so not everything the left says he is. Only brainwashed fools can’t see that. Nobody cares about blacks, hispanics, women, and other minorities are breaking through walls because we should judge people based on meritocracy instead of race, religion or gender like the left has been doing for decades. You wrote “good ol’ boys” above. I think we know who’s really racist and sexist here.

  • Nightwish

    Precisely. Now the dems have moved further in that direction. The goal is to have america infighting over issues as much as possible so the status quo can continue to award themselves more powers. These libs here don’t understand how the entire apparatus, deep state, msm, hollywood etc, has become extremist to get its way, and in the same breath they declare trump the bully! Outrageous. They cant be argued with, reducing themselves to parroting ad hominem attacks they hear from celebs and the msm. All this nonsense happening and they HAVENT EVEN GIVEN TRUMP A CHANCE AT OFFICIAL CAPACITY.

  • Michael Lemon

    The rabid left can’t be argued with-everything you’ve mentioned isn’t “taught” in the Marxist schools much less acknowledged in the MSM. That leaves most to connect the dots on their own. Like you say, the “apparatus” is beyond them…good thing we have the Second Amendment.

  • AK

    “hes a bully, so we can bully him too” Americans logic lol

  • Nightwish

    Look at the nonsense leftist comments here. These spoiled whiners want a president who gives merely them what they want, while Trump is determined to give this country what it actually needs – fiscal responsibility, prioritizing citizens over illegal immigrants who will run our pension and ss broke soon enough, strengthening policy to stimulate employment here rather than abroad, taking control of our military industrial complex run amok, seeking peace with other countries rather than war, etc. Enough is enough, yet none of this makes sense to the free shit, bleeding heart, ‘humanitarian’ brainwashed crowd. The liberals will be the end of the world if their progress is allowed to continue.

  • Nightwish

    Yet he hasn’t even started work. You’re a bigot, a hypocrite and a brainwashed fool. Just how do you know he won’t accomplish great things? Hillary is stable and fit to lead our country i take it? And let me guess, you ‘just know’ trump cant do what’s right for our country, yes? lels

  • Nightwish

    I’ll take that over an establishment candidate, ie Hillary, who will ensure the govt status quo grows so strong that even our democratic process won’t be able to oppose it. Do you covet a world war 3? Why, because our government is so trustworthy so nuclear war is justified? Anile fool.
