Salma Hayek says life under President Trump is like living in a “parallel universe of disinformation.”
“I find it really interesting how he constantly accuses people of the things he does. Crooked Hillary — he’s not crooked?” the “Frida” actress says in an interview with DuJour for the magazine’s spring issue.
“Liar! He kept saying she was one, but then he was lying all the time. It’s terrifying,” exclaims the 50-year-old mom of one, who was a vocal critic of Trump during the 2016 presidential race.
Born in Mexico and now a naturalized American citizen, Hayek was briefly an illegal immigrant, according to DuJour, when her visa expired in the 1990s.
“What do the supporters see? Every day the lies are being explained with facts, and then he says the press lied, and it’s like a parallel universe of disinformation,” Hayek says in the interview.
Hayek, who supported Clinton in last year’s White House race, has called Trump “pathetic” and someone who creates “only violence and separation.”
Despite her feelings about the commander in chief, Hayek says she's not giving up.
"I stay hopeful because I believe the best teacher in the world is your mistakes," the performer says.
"Maybe we will learn a lot from what is happening. I really do think things have to go a little bit south for people to come together and bounce back in a better way."
