In her first TV interview since announcing her run for Congress, actress Stacey Dash said she’s “not here to judge” neo-Nazis and defended President Donald Trump’s comments that came after the fatal Charlottesville rally in August.
Dash, who since her role in Clueless has become a conservative commentator and frequent Fox News guest, appeared on MSNBC after announcing her bid for Congress in California on Thursday, the New York Daily News reported.
Dash told interviewer Ari Melber that she agrees with Trump’s widely criticized comment that there was “blame on both sides” after a counter-protestor was killed by a neo-Nazi at a far-right rally last year.
“I’m not here to judge, the only one who can judge is God,” Dash said. “Do I know every person in the neo-Nazi party, if they have a good heart or not? No, I do not.”
She added: “Do I know every member of a gang whether they have a good heart or not? No, I don’t. Do I know every man in prison, if he has a good heart or not? No.”
In the interview, Dash also addressed protections for undocumented workers, saying, “I think we have to respect law enforcement.” When Melber asked her to elaborate, Dash responded, “Well, that’s it.”
It’s only the beginning of what’s sure to be a tough campaign for Dash, who’s running as a Republican in a heavily Democratic district in the Los Angeles suburbs.
