Jennifer Lawrence clarifies political stance after switching sides

The three-time Golden Globe victor has recently used her platform to endorse Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for the upcoming presidential election.

During her appearance on Dear Media's Absolutely Not podcast, Lawrence, a best actress victor for Silver Linings Playbook, said Donald Trump's election "changed everything". "My first time voting, I voted for John McCain".

Lawrence captured headlines last week when she revealed on Heather McMahan's Absolutely Not podcast she "was a little Republican" growing up.

She said that growing up in a Republican household allowed her to 'see the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies'.

In 2017, Lawrence famously spoke of her wish to throw a martini in Trump's face if she ever met him at a social event. "I don't want to support a president who supports white supremacists".

"The Democrats made a huge mistake by chastising the Trump supporters, and that was disgusting to me", the Oscar-winner said in early 2018.

Clearing the air after claiming that she was a Republican, Jennifer took her Twitter handle this Tuesday, explaining to fans that she "would like to clarify my voting record".

"It's so hard to remember the days when Obama was president where you woke up you would go days, maybe weeks, without thinking about the president because everything would generally be OK", she said.

Bobulinski told host Tukcer Carlson moments earlier that he met Joe Biden twice to discuss the family's business dealings in China, calling the Democratic candidate a "blatant liar" for denying any connection to Hunter Biden's worldwide network. And I would consider this upcoming election the most consequential of our lifetime.

"I'm voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this year because Donald Trump has and will continue to put himself before the safety and well-being of America", she told V Magazine earlier this month.

The actor signed off with a message to all her fans: "The bad news can feel overwhelming at times, but the most important thing is to stay focused on the ways we can all be part of the solution".
