Carrie Fisher Really Hated Donald Trump and Wasn't Shy About Letting the World Know

Among the many reasons to love Carrie Fisher, who died Tuesday, was the fact that she never minced a single word. In recent months, if you wondered how Fisher felt about Donald Trump, you only needed to check out her tweets. She was very much not a fan of Trump, and she made sure to mention it as often as possible.


For example, remember that time Fisher—who never downplayed her history of engagement with cocaine—suggested Trump was high during a presidential debate?

She also hinted that no sober person would choose to vote for Trump:

And she took a drug-related dig at the man who has spent his life reducing women to their looks:

But Fisher had many other thoughts on Trump worth revisiting. For example, when she said he'd lower the office:

When she called him out for bragging about criminal sex acts:

Or when she made fun of all that "straight shooter" nonsense. 

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"619320","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"216","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"480"}}]]

And in summation:

[[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_original","fid":"619325","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"715","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"509"}}]]

R.I.P. Carrie Fisher. Your humor and candor will be sorely missed.
