If there was any doubt who actor and activist Susan Sarandon is backing in the 2016 presidential race, well, doubt no longer... 

In an interview from Monday’s All In With Chris Hayes, the Hollywood icon - who has been passionately been supporting Bernie Sanders this primary season — voiced an understanding for liberal voters who say that they might not vote for Hillary Clinton in the general election if she wins the nomination.

However, Sarandon herself hasn’t made up her mind on the issue saying, “I don’t know…I’m going to see what happens.” 

Sarandon echoed what several polls have found: that Bernie's supporters find Clinton to be dishonest.  Hayes responded by presenting the idea that even if that is true, she’s the lesser of two evils when compared with Donald Trump.

“Some people feel Donald Trump will bring the revolution immediately,” Sarandon rebutted.  “Don’t you think that’s dangerous?” asked Hayes.  Sarandon’s response, that the status quo isn’t working, set off another round of debate.  Watch the video below. 

Sarandon has always been passionate about her political stances as showcased below when Larry last interviewed her.
