TV actor Samaire Armstrong, known for her role in “The O.C.,” is going against the Hollywood grain, coming out in support of President Donald Trump.
The 39-year-old celebrity endorsed the Republican president in a lengthy video posted Wednesday to her personal Instagram account, telling those fighting supposed “systemic racism” yet casting their ballots for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden they are “part of the problem,” because he has been in politics for five decades and is responsible, in part, “for all of this ‘systemic racism,’ injustice.”
“I’m voting for [Trump], and this is why,” she wrote in a caption alongside the video. “This is my opinion. I am sharing it with you at the cost of everything, because it is my right. It is your right to refute it. What I hope comes from this is that we are able to have an open dialogue.”
Armstrong went on to write: “There are so many in our great country who have been bullied into silence at the doing of a far-left mob.”
Speaking of left-leaning politicians like Biden, Armstrong argued, “They’re not doing anything — and that’s why they hate Trump so much.”
“Donald Trump isn’t even technically a Republican himself,” she continued. “He’s always socially at heart been a Democrat — a liberal, I should say. Because he believes in social equality. So this fallacy that he’s an evil racist, a bigot is [expletive].”
In another post, the TV star criticized the official Black Lives Matter movement, calling the campaign an “act of warfare at the hands of Marxist criminals, ‘woke’ white, angsts uneducated antifa, who do not have the bandwidth to navigate an indoor golf course, let alone life.”
“They are not bright,” Armstrong added. “They are manipulative criminals. They are puppets of an agenda. We, too, have been puppets. This must end now. White guilt, celebrity endorsement, and corporate pandering has funded this $1 billion domestic terrorist organization.”
She also took a shot at calls to defund the police, saying the BLM movement is “destroying and dismantling our first line of defense against criminals.” Law enforcement officers, she explained, “have been thrown under the bus by spineless politicians.”
“We owe the police our most heartfelt apologies and gratitude for their sacrifice,” Armstrong told her followers.
