TV actor Samaire Armstrong, known for her role in “The O.C.,” is going against the Hollywood grain, coming out in support of President Donald Trump.
The 39-year-old celebrity endorsed the Republican president in a lengthy video posted Wednesday to her personal Instagram account, telling those fighting supposed “systemic racism” yet casting their ballots for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden they are “part of the problem,” because he has been in politics for five decades and is responsible, in part, “for all of this ‘systemic racism,’ injustice.”
“I’m voting for [Trump], and this is why,” she wrote in a caption alongside the video. “This is my opinion. I am sharing it with you at the cost of everything, because it is my right. It is your right to refute it. What I hope comes from this is that we are able to have an open dialogue.”
Armstrong went on to write: “There are so many in our great country who have been bullied into silence at the doing of a far-left mob.”

This is MY opinion. I am sharing it with you at the cost of everything, because it is my right. It is your right to refute it. * What I hope comes from this, is that we are able to have an open dialogue. * There are many thoughts and insight you may want to interject and provide. I encourage you to have factual data to support what your point is. * There are so many in our great country who have been bullied into silence at the doing of a far left mob. * Let’s shift back to reality and facts. Let’s stop placating to the emotionally undeveloped, who have an inability to process the meaning of personal responsibility, as if they are the cultural guide of which we should follow. * I encourage us all to stay grounded in these discussions. I am well aware how emotional and important what we are discussing is. * You can see in my video how passionate I am. I ask you to consider, why I would be coming out saying these things. How is it that I feel so confident about putting my “divisive” perspective in public. I am willing to gamble with what comes of my opinion, because I have conviction of its validity. * If nothing else, I hope this encourages you to speak YOUR opinion, no matter how unpopular it may be. * Freedom of speech must be restored. Logic must be restored. Critical thinking must be restored. * I have deep love for everyone of my fellow humans. Every race, color, creed, gender, political back ground, religious back ground, financial background, must have their OWN voice and opinion, and it MUST be allowed be to spoken.
Speaking of left-leaning politicians like Biden, Armstrong argued, “They’re not doing anything — and that’s why they hate Trump so much.”
“Donald Trump isn’t even technically a Republican himself,” she continued. “He’s always socially at heart been a Democrat — a liberal, I should say. Because he believes in social equality. So this fallacy that he’s an evil racist, a bigot is [expletive].”
In another post, the TV star criticized the official Black Lives Matter movement, calling the campaign an “act of warfare at the hands of Marxist criminals, ‘woke’ white, angsts uneducated antifa, who do not have the bandwidth to navigate an indoor golf course, let alone life.”
“They are not bright,” Armstrong added. “They are manipulative criminals. They are puppets of an agenda. We, too, have been puppets. This must end now. White guilt, celebrity endorsement, and corporate pandering has funded this $1 billion domestic terrorist organization.”
She also took a shot at calls to defund the police, saying the BLM movement is “destroying and dismantling our first line of defense against criminals.” Law enforcement officers, she explained, “have been thrown under the bus by spineless politicians.”
“We owe the police our most heartfelt apologies and gratitude for their sacrifice,” Armstrong told her followers.
