Not every actor and actress of the Hollywood Left establishment shows unabashed love for President Barack Obama. Apparently, film star Susan Sarandon is comparing the Obama White House similar to the Richard Nixon White House during the Watergate era.
The Houston Chronicle reports that, “actress and political activist Susan Sarandon believes U.S. government officials tapped her phones. The Thelma & Louise star became convinced she was under surveillance after seeing a file obtained through Freedom if Information requests and fears this was the reason she was denied a security clearance for a recent visit to the White House.”
Sarandon made the shocking revelation during a town hall meeting at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on Sunday. She told the audience, “we’re under surveillance. I’ve had my phone tapped. I was denied a security clearance to go to the White House and I don’t know why.”
According to the Houston Chronicle, “the actress has been a supporter of human rights campaigns and liberal causes for over three decades, and was a vocal opponent of the 2003 invasion of Iraq.”
Earlier this year, she endorsed the Occupy Wall Street movement, which Jesuits priests have claimed is a so-called “spiritual pilgrimage.”
