Jennifer Lawrence Says Hurricanes Harvey & Irma Are Nature’s ‘Wrath’ For Electing Trump
Jennifer Lawrence, 27, suggested that the recent, devastating hurricanes Harvey and Irma are signs of “Mother Nature’s rage and wrath” at the United States for electing Donald Trump and for not believing in man-made climate change.
The Oscar-winning actress, who is promoting her new movie “Mother!,” appeared on British Network Channel 4 on Wednesday where she discussed a range of topics, from her new movie to the gender pay gap and President Trump.
“It’s scary,” the actress said in reply to the interviewer’s assertion that there was “an end-of-days feeling” across the world and especially in the U.S.
“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognize it. It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”
And you have voted very recently, as a country” the reporter noted – to which Lawrence replied that “it was really startling” Donald Trump was elected. The actress then suggested the recent hurricanes devastating Texas and Florida may have been prompted by Trump’s election.
“You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage and wrath,” Lawrence stated.
Lawrence later addressed that the polarizing conversation topics of Trump and U.S. politics were “really upsetting.”
She added: “You know, I’ve heard things and seen things on TV in my own country that devastate me and make me sick, and it’s just really confusing.”
The interviewer then asks whether Lawrence finds Trump confusing, the actress fires back, saying, “I don’t find him confusing. I think I know exactly what he is.”
The Joy actress has never shied away from speaking her mind, especially her opinions on the President. In 2015, when Trump had just launched his presidential campaign, Lawrence said, during an Entertainment Weekly interview, that a victory by him would “be the end of the world.”
