“Grey’s Anatomy” actor Isaiah Washington praised President Trump for supporting the black agenda last week and slammed former former President Barack Obama for not.
“Washington was at the White House to see the celebrate a prison reform bill, the First Step Act, which is focused on inmate rehabilitation,” as reported by The Daily Mail.
“Congress passed legislation last year called the First Step Act that gives judges more discretion when sentencing some drug offenders and boosts prisoner rehabilitation efforts.” they added.
“I voted for 44 twice. I even checked my emails in his Senate Office while lobbying for Salone to be given another chance to rebrand,” Isaiah Washington tweeted.
“Not once in 8 years was I given any support regarding Africa or the Black Agenda, but 45 invites me to the WH to celebrate the #FirstStepAct”
“Those who know, know that I’m not a Democrat or a Republican,” Washington continued in another tweet.
“I will work w/h anyone as long as things get done. The #FirstStepAct was passed on December 21, 2018 w/h the hard work of @JessyMichele @LouislReed @VanJones68 and @cut_50 I’m proud to stand with them all today.”
“I may have 99 problems with 45, but mass incarceration ain’t one of them,” Washington later added.
After receiving backlash on social media from those who did not want to see him support President Trump, Washington encouraged people to turn off CNN and othe cimilar left-wing media and go learn about the First Step Act.
“Please stop @ ing me with your hate and ignorance before properly researching the #FirstStepAct and @cut_50 I’m really embarrassed for y’all. Come on now,” Washington tweeted. “You can be better by doing better. And one more thing! Do yourselves a favor and Turn Off @CNN Self Care is tantamount!”
