Whitney Cummings said Hollywood should want to empathize with supporters of President Donald Trumps and not just dismiss them and what they have to say.
In one interview with The Daily BeastPosted Wednesday, Cummings opened up about her time as an executive producer during the Roseanne reboot and was asked what it was like to get into the mind of a Trump supporter.
I am fascinated by playing the demon advocate and want to understand people who I disagree with. I don’t want to reject and slander. My father made me chat with him at the table. Hed said, give me three reasons why you should be able to stay out after midnight, and I have to make my case, she said. It is very fair or moralizing to simply dismiss people with whom we disagree without trying to understand why they believe what they believe.
Cummings, who lived in Washington, DC while growing up, said she was exposed to people with different beliefs and opinions when she was young.
Even though I don’t agree with someone, I don’t think they’re stupid, she said.
The comedian then slammed the film and TV writers, saying it was weird that many were like, Fuck the right!
You are a writer! You’re supposed to want to empathize with characters you don’t necessarily agree with because you have to write them down, she says. I’m just trying to take away the judgment and the emotion. To me, a big part of what happened when Trump won was that there were so many people who felt speechless, not seen, not heard, rejected, ignored, unrepresented and the everyone’s basic human need must be seen and understood. If you don’t see them and understand them, they are going to be heard in one way or another.
Then Cummings joked: Am I canceled?
The Can I touch it? The star also said she thinks Trump knows how much we need him, and plays it.
It’s that co-dependent, screwed up symbiotic cycle where the more we laughed at him the more powerful he got, she said. But yeah, I shit for not constantly tweeting negatively about Trump because I really believe ignoring him is the only way. I’m not powerful enough to make a difference anyway.
