Stacey Dash Apologizes for Past Support of Donald Trump, Admits She 'Made a Lot of Mistakes'

Former Fox News contributor Stacey Dash is making a lot of apologies for her past support of Donald Trump.

She revealed she voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and then voted for Mitt Romney in 2012. She said she now describes herself as “apolitical.”

“I’ve lived my life being angry, which is what I was on Fox News,” she said to Daily Mail. “I was the angry, conservative, Black woman. And at that time in my life, it was who I was. I realized in 2016 that anger is unsustainable and it will destroy you. I made a lot of mistakes because of that anger.”

She continued, “Things that I did say, that I should not have said them the way I said them. They were very arrogant and prideful and angry. And that’s who Stacey was, but that’s not who Stacey is now. Stacey‘s someone who has compassion, empathy.”

“I’m not a victim of anyone. Working for Fox at the time, that was my job. I did my job from the place I was at. Stacey now would never work at Fox, would never work for a news network or be a news contributor,” she added.

Dash said, “Being a supporter of Trump has put me in some kind of box that I don’t belong in. But he’s not the president. I’m going to give the president that we have right now a chance.”

“When that happened I was like ‘OK, I’m done. I’m truly done,’” she said of her support of Donald Trump after the Capitol Riots on January 6, 2021. “Because senseless violence of any kind I denounce. What happened on January 6 was just appalling and stupid.”
