Sandra Bullock to Hillary Clinton: If You Don’t Like Our President, You Can Leave-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
Sandra Bullock said if Hillary Clinton doesn’t like President Trump, she can “Leave and never come back again.”
Sandra Bullock didn’t say that Hillary Clinton should leave the country if she doesn’t like President Donald Trump. In fact, a fabricated report that made that claim copy and pasted quotes from a 2015 interview in which Bullock criticized Trump.
Sandra Bullock’s message to Hillary Clinton first appeared at the website US World Now in October 2017. A fabricated story, which has since been re-reported by various fringe and fake news websites, appears under the headline:
“Actress Sandra Bullock To Hillary Clinton: ‘If You Don’t Like Our President You Can Leave And Never Come Back Again, You Are One Jealous Woman Who Is Nothing To Compare With Trump, I Hope He Will Arrest You Soon’”
The US World Now domain was registered in August 2017. And, although little is known about the website, a quick scan of its archives reveals a number of well-trafficked fake news reports. A false report about Trump removing a Muslim federal judge is among them. The report about Sandra Bullock’s message to Hillary Clinton appears to be another fabrication.
Sandra Bullock to Hillary Clinton: The Real Source of the Quotes
Quotes from the “Sandra Bullock to Hillary Clinton” story came from a 2015 interview. Although Bullock describes herself as not very “politically vocal,” she said her son’s best interest shapes her political views.
And Bullock said that she grew up in a politically divided home, and considers herself open to different viewpoints. However, bullock said she would not vote for Trump. She took issue with Trump’s comments on Mexican-Americans when he announced his candidacy:
“I don’t agree with that at all. That was not a statement that I can get behind. I don’t agree with that statement.”
Because the source of Sandra Bullock’s comments to Hillary Clinton is untrustworthy, and that the story directly contradicts Bullock’s political views, we’re calling this on “fiction.”
