Ellen Page is not holding back.
The 31-year-old actress made an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Thursday night (January 31).
“Sorry, I’m like really fired up tonight,” she said while discussing current affairs, including the attack on Jussie Smollett.
“But it feels impossible not to feel this way right now, with the president and the vice president, Mike Pence, who, like, wishes I couldn’t be married. Let’s just be clear: The vice president of America wishes I didn’t have the love with my wife. He wanted to ban that in Indiana, he believes in ‘conversion therapy,’ he has hurt LGBTQ people so badly as the [governor] of Indiana,” she said while getting visibly emotional.
“If you are in a position of power and you hate people, and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering, what do you think is going to happen? Kids are going to be abused and they’re gonna kill themselves, and people are going to be beaten on the street…this needs to f–king stop.”
