Jennifer Aniston is not a huge fan of President Donald Trump, and she allegedly criticized the POTUS again.
Jennifer Aniston is one of the celebrities who are not really a fan of the president. According to one outlet, the Friends alum criticized the head of the state following the first presidential debate last week.
Jennifer Aniston called Donald Trump a racist
On Tuesday, Donald Trump and Joe Biden faced each other for the first presidential debate. Debate moderator Chris Wallace called out the POTUS to explicitly condemned white supremacists.
Instead, he gave a shout-out to the male-only group Proud Boys. He said they should “stand back and stand by.” The POTUS added that the real problem is the “far-left” extremists.
The extremist group is a far-right, neo-fascist organization with ties to white supremacists that promotes and engages in political violence.
Jennifer Aniston reacted by criticizing the Republican leader. Aniston allegedly took to Instagram and shaded the POTUS for not condemning the white supremacists.
“Anyone who cannot unequivocally condemn white supremacy is racist and unfit for the presidency,” she wrote in a screenshot shared by geo.tv.
“If you vote for him, you are also racist. The end. #Debates2020.”

I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down… jobs are being lost… health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough. ⠀ ⠀ I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this 🥰 BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate 🙏🏼 ⠀ ⠀ If you care about human life, please… just #wearadamnmask 😷 and encourage those around you to do the same ❤️
Trump changed his mind
However, President Donald Trump seemed to have changed his mind days after the debate. Following the uproar over his ambiguous comments, he released another statement that contradicted his previous words. Trump said he didn’t know the proud boys and condemned all white supremacists.
“I´ve said it many times, and let me be clear again, I condemn the KKK, I condemn all white supremacists, I condemn the Proud Boys,” Trump told Fox News.
“I don´t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing, but I condemn that,” he said.

Other comments after the debate
Several celebrities commented on Donald Trump and Joe Biden’s first presidential debate. Trump’s supporters were very happy and proud of him. But he also received intense criticisms from his critics because he often cut and interrupted Biden. The Democratic candidate ended up telling Trump to “shut up.”
Many remembered Hillary Clinton when she also faced Trump for the presidential debate in 2016. Many said they pitied her because they believed she also wanted to tell Trump the same thing four years ago. Clinton confirmed that she could relate to Biden.
Michelle Obama also reacted to the debate with dismay. The ex-FLOTUS said she was turned off by Trump’s performance and campaigned for Biden.
“If you were turned off by the President’s behavior last night, I feel you. Believe me, I do,” Obama wrote on Instagram.
