Actress Susan Sarandon appeared on CNN on Thursday to speak about the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) protest.
When asked by anchor Carol Costello why the two major party candidates, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, seemed uninterested in the protest, Sarandon said that major party candidates were supported by some of the same corporations that supported the pipeline.
“The DNC is gone,” she said “and we need a progressive party.”
When asked to explain what she meant, Sarandon said, “It’s completely corrupt and in bed with every…every superdelegate is a lobbyist. And the way that the system is set up in terms of having superdelegates. You could win a state and not get the delegates. It’s crazy.”
Sarandon chose to back Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein. She also said that she still liked Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), despite his support for Clinton.
