CNN Lets Stacey Dash Discuss Her Political Choice of Romney (VIDEO)

CNN reached far this week when they let J-list actress Stacey Dash on “Piers Morgan Tonight” to discuss her support of Mitt Romney.
In the interview, Dash clarified her views on why she supported Romney for president. She voted for President Obama in 2008, but feels the country needs to go in another direction.
Dash tweeted last Saturday, “Vote for Romney. The only choice for your future.”
From there, the gates of hell broke open with replies from some of her over 300,000 followers. They called the actress all kinds of names and someone even told her to kill herself. On the bright side, she did earn a pleasant phone call from vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan on Tuesday.
It’s uncommon to see an African-American actress support a Republican candidate … though Dash refers to herself as black and Mexican. *side-eye* Like Stacey said to Piers Morgan, she is free to express her First Amendment right. I’ll definitely give her that.
It’s also fair to say that other left-leaning celebrities have gone on Morgan’s program and talked about why they support(ed) President Obama.
I just don’t understand the uproar about Stacey Dash, though. She’s no Meryl Streep. Earlier this year, she was reportedly let go from VH1’s “Single Ladies.” So, she is unemployed in a nutshell. I guess Dash now wants President Obama to feel her pain since she can’t keep a job.
