Disney Star Daisy Ridley: ‘Everyone Has An Issue With Trump – Every Sane Person Anyway’

Star Wars fans around the world are eagerly awaiting the release of the final installment of the Skywalker saga which is set to release later this month.

In the final days before the move’s release, central actress Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey, told the Guardian that every sane person should have a problem with Trump.

The rare political comment should not come as a surprise as Hollywood mostly hates the Republican president, but the sweeping claim frustrated some people.

Twitchy reports the actress had this to say about the president: “No. I don’t feel I have to edit what I say – the things that make me angry are the things that make everyone angry. Everyone is annoyed with BoJo. Everyone has an issue with Trump – every sane person anyway.”

“It’s not that I don’t talk about this stuff, but other people are so much more articulate than me and say it better,” she quickly said in response to her own comment.

Twitchy reports the new Star Wars installments have included a number of political messages, most notably introducing a number of “social justice” ideals.

From the report:

Recent films under the banner have been looking at varying returns. ”Rogue One” generated interest but fell well short of the main franchise titles. The most recent installment, the Daisy Ridley-filled ”The Last Jedi” was not only distancing to fans over some of the cast comments but die hard fans also have issues with the film. That title came in more than $300 million below that of the previous release, ”The Force Awakens”. Then ”Solo”, a prequel filled with social activist messaging, did what many thought was impossible — it did so poorly in theaters it actually lost gobs of cash for Disney.
