Being a Republican in Hollywood has always been tough, but according to actress Suzanne Somers, coming out in support of President Donald Trump in Hollywood is akin to committing career suicide.
Somers, who looks phenomenal at age 71, made the comments to TMZ in West Hollywood over the weekend. A reporter initially asked her what she thought about the government shutdown, to which Somers replied that politicians need to get their stuff together before going on to praise Trump’s performance with the economy. “I’m happy that the economy’s doing so much better,” she said. “And now my career is over.”
Somers said that it was “very rare” for someone in Los Angeles to come out in support of Trump, but the reporter said he believes there are people who have Somers’s back. Indeed, many people did show support for Somers on Twitter.
Suzanne Somers comes out in defense of President Trump.
There are many celebrities who are too scared to do the same. https://t.co/CDDklUEFiY

Unfortunately, many liberals on Twitter proved Somers exactly right by joking that her career was long over even before she came out in support of Trump.
How weird. I woke up this morning and was pondering to myself “I wonder what Suzanne Somers thinks of Trump?”

Suzanne Somers joins such luminaries as Scott Baio and Kid Rock. Who are happy to ignore we have a racist POS as president.

Uh…Suzie? According to IMDB, your last credited role in film or on tv was just about 19 years ago. You hadn’t noticed that your career has been over for about two decades?https://t.co/b4rGlP4BQb https://t.co/zcJLWD7N0H

Suzanne Somers says her Hollywood career is over because she praised Trump. Yeah, that’s why.

Never again will I support a woman that supports that monster. We are done and I will tell anyone with ears on their head to never support anything you do again.🖕🏻

Kudos to Suzanne Somers for speaking her honest opinion – something that everyone should be allowed to do without fear of repercussion.
