Following a Bernie Sanders rally in Iowa during which she introduced the candidate to the crowd, actress Susan Sarandon spoke with The Young Turks reporter Jordan Chariton about another presidential contender: Donald Trump. The Oscar-winning actress expressed doubt that Trump would be elected commander-in-chief, and suggested that “sane Republicans”—a term that seems vaguely obsolete, but okay—are probably as unenthused about The Donald as the rest of the country.

“He reminds me of, like, your drunk uncle at a wedding,” Sarandon says, “who gets up and starts talking and just loves the crowd and just goes on and on and on and says whatever he can to get a reaction.”
