Jennifer Lawrence never wanted to save the world. Not the real world, anyway. She didn’t think actresses should talk politics. But then “Donald Trump got sworn into office,” and “that f—— changed.”
Now, this reluctant Pericles and her vocabulary are taking a year off from the movies to “fix our democracy.” (Or maybe she’s a Lincoln. She’s originally from Kentucky, and proudly self-taught along the rustic frontier of Hollywood.)
At any rate, Trump has clearly upset her. One of the early symptoms of Acute Trump Derangement Syndrome is the loss of self awareness. The symptom is rare, because most who suffer from ATDS never had much self awareness to begin with. Lawrence, it seems is different.
“I’ve always thought that it was a good idea to stay out of politics,” Lawrence told Vanity Fair in the March issue.
“Twenty-five percent of America identifies as liberal and I need more than 25 percent of America to go see my movies. It’s not wise, career-speaking, to talk about politics.” Not only that, (in the interview, at least) she didn’t exhibit the New York-L.A. disdain for the hayseeds that’s congenital in so many white liberals.
“The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me.” Uh, wow.
“Of course they’re not going to vote for Hillary Clinton; they’re going to vote for Donald Trump,” she said. “You laughed at them when their plight is very real.” (And you have to wonder if she was looking right at the poor, blindsided Vanity Fair writer when she said it. “Uhh, but Jennifer, I just came out here to dish on pervy producers and bitch about Trump …”)
Her compassion for Trump voters is all the more remarkable given her idiotic bombast about the man himself. In 2015, she thundered. “If Donald Trump becomes president that will be the end of the world.”

The end was decidedly not nigh.
But she did find lesser calamities to charge him with. “You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now,” she said in September, “and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage and wrath.”
The movie she was promoting was “Mother!,” the symbolic parable of an eco-religious allegorical metaphor and meditation on eco-religious allegory … it was important, okay?
