Actor Isaiah Washington is not known for its discretion. Now, after being a strong supporter of President Donald Trump and the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement, Washington has once again changed course.
In a tweet published on Sunday January 10, Washington called the MAGA movement a “hangman” and said it was “done with politics.”
“People ask me why I am so silent. Well that’s because Qanon and the whole MAGA movement was a scam. I am disgusted with the way the Conservatives in the CYA / GOP left 75,000,000 voters behind. I’m done with politics and never trusted either party. Farewell the Patriots! #Truth, ”Washington tweeted.
His comments elicited mixed responses. Some of his supporters have said they are happy Washington has finally seen the light and / or agrees with him.
“We tried to warn you Isaiah and you fell in love with the banana in the tailpipe, these people were never Patriots,” user @ m_stevenson78 replied. “I agree. It sucks to have no representative in our country,” added user @ EllabRice26.
“They had your voice, your courage and your support! And most haven’t returned it to you anyway! Some people talk a lot and like to be entertained. And since I’m actually your friend… I totally agree with you! Twitter user @itisyaya wrote.

Jamarlin explains why this is a multifactorial rebellion versus mere protests against George Floyd. He discusses the Democratic Party’s underhanded relationship with police in cities and states under Dem control, and why Joe Biden is a cop and the Steve Jobs of mass incarceration.
Others have urged Washington not to give up so quickly.
“Don’t give up just yet. Trump wouldn’t leave us hanging, ”user @ PirateGirl95 wrote. User APtrooth added “but the rest of us 75 million people want and need you to be with us, yes I was taken out they tried to shut me up but I came back to stand up with all my Patriots. “
A user identified as Ryan A. Bell asked Washington why it took him so long to realize that Trump was evil.
“How many times have I told you that you follow crooks, liars and thieves?” You followed and hired an evil man and now you have to work to catch up with him. I mean, I’m glad you see it but man… why did it take so long? Bell replied.
Although he called the MAGA movement a scam, Washington also tweeted “Trump won”, China won and “Nancy won”, as well as a heartbreaking cartoon by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. constitution the same day.
A former Democrat who said he voted for Barack Obama twice, Washington now claims no party affiliation. In 2019, he told a Fox interviewer that he walked away from the big parties because “something is wrong.”
“You have to know the power of no… and going away is a sacrifice, it’s a risk and there’s a penalty for it; but I will only leave when it counts and the reason I chose to quit the Democratic Party as I know it or quit the Republican Party because I don’t know is that something is wrong ” Washington said.
“I walk away and don’t know where I’m going, but I know where I’m from and if I’m looking at the Democratic Party’s political lineage in the last 50 years of my life, since I was 5, and I’m 55 and very little has changed in my community just two blocks from where I am right now, so I have a few questions, ”Washington continued.
A user @ReverendSmiley echoed in Washington and expressed an increasingly popular sentiment among US citizens.
“None of the parties are ‘for the people’, they are only for themselves,” wrote @ReverendSmiley.
