Stacey Dash went on Pier Morgan to chat about the backlash she has received for her decision to vote for Romney. Dash explained why she decided to vote for him this time around versus President Obama, whom she voted for last election and she says that the response to her tweet proves that we aren’t united as a country. Check it out below:
On the response to her support for Mitt Romney:
People are all going to have their own opinion and that’s the point. We are all entitled to our opinion and I used my platform to exercise my first amendment right as a citizen to say who I was going to vote for.
On Why She Is Voting For Mitt Romney [She voted for President Obama during the last election]:
Because of the state of the country and I want the next four years to be different. I believe him. I watched him for awhile and then when I watched him, the Governer and his wife on ‘Meet The Press’. They spoke to me and they seemed authentic and genuine about what they said about this country and the need for us to be united and move forward…and really bring up our economy andmake money.
On if she believes the backlash was because she’s a black woman:
I really don’t understand the fiery. I don’t get it. I am shocked. Saddened and shocked but you can’t expect everyone to agree with you.
I don’t feel offended, I just feel that as a country, this is my choice. It is my right as an American citizen. It’s my constitutional right to have my choice of who I want to vote for for President and I chose him, not by the color of his skin but the content of his character.
On what the backlash says about the country:
It tells me that the state of our country is not united.
