Actress Stacey Dash appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan to defend her controversial Twitter endorsement of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
"It's because of the state of the country. I want the next four years to be different,” said the former co-star of the film Clueless and television's Single Ladies. "When I watched the governor and his wife on Meet the Press with David Gregory, they spoke to me and they seemed authentic and genuine about what they said about this country about the need for us to be united and move forward."
Dash has been the subject of an immediate internet backlash from fans and supporters ever since she tweeted her support for Romney over the weekend. "You’re an unemployed black woman endorsing @MittRomney. You’re voting against yourself thrice. You poor beautiful idiot," read one tweet.
The actress also quoted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and said that she is backing Romney "not by the color of his skin but the content of his character."
Not sure what "content" Dash found in Romney's "character" besides repeatedly lying, contempt for working people and working to undermine a women's right to choose what to do with her own body. Keep telling yourself that, hun.
