Susan Sarandon Confirms She's Having 'Literally The Worst Time' At The DNC

The vocal Bernie Sanders supporter couldn't hide her disgust during Monday's speeches.

Susan Sarandon may be an Oscar-winning actress, but it appears even she can’t play it cool. 

The outspoken Bernie Sanders supporter was seen unable to hide her disgust while attending the Democratic National Convention (DNC) on Monday.

“Susan Sarandon is having literally the worst time at the #DemConvention,” Ian McKenna of NowThis News tweeted with a GIF showing the actress shaking her head and slowly closing her eyes as others clapped around her.

In less than an hour, the “Thelma and Louise” star saw the video and had one word to say: “Accurate.”

Sarandon has remained steadfast in her support for the Vermont senator, despite the fact that rival Hillary Clinton is expected to clinch the Democratic nomination this week.

She was particularly vocal earlier this week after WikiLeaks published thousands of hacked DNC emails, revealing that staffers worked to harm Sanders’ candidacy, despite claims of neutrality. It later led to DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz announcing her resignation.

Sanders himself called the bias against his campaign ― which he had long suspected ― “outrageous” while Sarandon, speaking with Jordan Chariton of The Young Turks, called the DNC’s efforts “disgusting.”

“The critical question is, does it matter? Nixon resigned when they broke into the [DNC] headquarters ... and now you found out all this tampering went on. What does this really say about us if all of this goes by unattended?” she asked.

Twitter users have still chastised her refusal to get behind Clinton, with some warning Sarandon that refusing to support Clinton’s campaign is a win for Republican rival Donald Trump.

Sarandon had previously called Clinton “more dangerous” than Trump, however, by reason that most of his promises are too ridiculous to come to fruition.
