Susan Sarandon, in case you haven't heard, is a liberal, and she's not ashamed share her frequently unpopular thoughts and opinions with the world. During a 75-minute chat sponsored by the Tribeca Film Festival, the "Thelma & Louise" star admitted that she was denied security clearance at the White House. However, anyone who's kept up with Sarandon shouldn't be overly surprised by this news. Politically speaking, she's really not that well liked, particularly since she isn't above speaking her mind regarding extremely sensitive matters.
During the conversation -- which included controversial documentary filmmaker Michael Moore -- an audience member asked if the pair thought they were being watched by the government. Sarandon was extremely quick to point out that she had, in fact, acquired her file courtesy of the Freedom of Information Act. Regarding the security clearance issue, the actress said she had no idea why she wasn't allowed access to the White House.
Sarandon also claims that the government hacked and tapped her phone, an accusation that was mirrored by Moore.
As you can tell by the Twitter comments below, the only person who seems genuinely perplexed about the security issue is Sarandon. What do you think about Sarandon's remarks? Is she dangerous enough to be prevented from setting foot inside the White House? Let us know in the comments section.
