Stacey Dash, the actress who has become a faithful Donald Trump supporter and conservative commentator, was the focus of jokes and scorn on social media because she apparently was not invited to a cast reunion of the movie “Clueless.”
The Chicago Tribune reported that “a sea of fans” filled a 2,800-seat hall on Saturday for the reunion of the iconic 1995 film at the city’s annual C2E2 comic con. There were two notable absences from the cast: Brittany Murphy, who died in 2009, and Dash.
“They kept it light, jocular. Murphy came up once, Dash not at all,” the newspaper said.
These days, Dash is better known for her conservative political views. She endeared herself to Republicans during the 2012 presidential election when she endorsed GOP candidate Mitt Romney over President Barack Obama. Dash said she had voted for the nation’s first Black president in 2008.
“Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future,” she tweeted in 2012. Two years later, she became a commentator on Fox News.
In 2018, she filed paperwork to run for a Southern California congressional seat in a district that is heavily Democratic, as well as heavily Latino and Black. However, she decided to back out of the race one month later.
During her campaign, she created more waves by supporting President Trump’s defense of white supremacists.
While on MSNBC, she was asked about Trump’s vile comments about the violent 2017 neo-Nazi rally in Charlottesville, when he infamously sympathized with Nazis by saying, “I do think there’s blame on both sides. You look at both sides. I think there’s blame on both sides and I have no doubt about it, and you don’t have any doubt about it.”
Trump was comparing the counter-protesters to Nazis who were screaming, “Blood and soil,” which is a Nazi Germany reference. Trump also said, “You have some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people on both sides.”
Dash told MSNBC’s Ari Melber that she agreed with Trump, “I think he’s absolutely right, there were two extreme sides.”
Melber then asked, “When he said there are ‘good people on both sides,’ good people at the white supremacist rally, do you cosign that?”
Dash decided to evoke God, “I’m not here to judge. The only one who can judge is God.”
