Love Trumps Hate? ‘Sex’ Star Shuns Trump Voters

The “Sex and the City” star hasn’t exactly lived up to that sentiment since then.

Davis recently opened up to People Magazine about how many photographs of Hillary Clinton adorned her home prior to Election Day. The actress’ daughter figured the two were besties due to all the Clinton snapshots.

Clinton’s loss meant a “teachable moment” between mother and child.

“I had to tell her that we didn’t win and you don’t always get what you want and that it doesn’t mean that things won’t be great,” she says. “And that we’ll still be active and fight for the things we believe in.”

That’s what Davis told People Magazine. The sentiment seemed sincere, and it was, indeed, a fine parenting moment. Heck, in our participation trophy age, showing a child how to deal with adversity is a wonderful thing.

The star shared another side of her post-election grief recently. And the whole “Love Trumps Hate” meme didn’t quite describe it. Here’s part of her conversation with WNYC’s Rebecca Carroll about her reaction to Donald Trump’s Election Day victor.

“Right now I want to be in the bubble. I don’t want to talk to any Trump people…My initial thoughts [after the election] was that I wanted to move to the woods and learn to shoot a gun. The fear of what is happening and how am I going to make sure that no one hurts my child, even in a subtle way, which was already a fear I had honestly, but it just became so, so heightened.”

A more “loving” response might involve getting to know those “Trump people.” Maybe Davis could learn why they voted as they did. Perhaps both she and her daughter would learn the frustrations of those willing outside what she dubbed her “bubble.”

She might even figure out why Clinton was rejected despite near universal support from Hollywood, academia and news outlets.

That would trump hate, no?

    1. She sounds a lot like the character she played on the show. Which is kind of another way of saying what you just said.

  1. “…no one hurts my child.” Coming from someone who is most certainly pro-abortion is the height of hypocrisy.

  2. Thankfully, Hillary didn’t get elected so she can’t appoint those judges to overturn Heller
    leaving Ms. Davis right to have the effective means to defend herself and her child intact. (not valid in large portions of CA, MA, CT, NJ or NY….)

    I highly recommend she learn to shoot a gun, she might find she enjoys the challenge, it will better enable her to defend herself and her child, and it may be a start in understanding a bit, perhaps not about Trump supporters, but about how people could be opposed to Hillary.

  3. But, um, DUH!! Move to the woods and learn to shoot a gun? Kinda near impossible to do if you don’t want to be near Trump people. We live in the woods and we shoot guns. Funny thing is, we also, if needed, protect kids with our guns, even trump rump hurt liberals too, albeit grudgingly.

  4. “My initial thoughts [after the election] was that I wanted to move to the woods and learn to shoot a gun.”

    Dear, it should be: My initial thoughts WERE, not WAS. God save us from these “intellectual” liberals. ;op

  5. Very concerning that she wants a gun so no one hurts her child, since the Left defines so many things as hate crimes. Shoot someone for wearing a Make America Great hat?

  6. Liberals are happy to talk about “love”, “understanding” and “tolerance” as long as they agree with the other person’s views. Hypocrites.

  7. “She might even figure out why Clinton was rejected despite near universal support from Hollywood, academia and news outlets.” This is why Hillary lost and Trump won!! Hollywood, academia, news outlets do not represent the real working class.
