Liberal actress Susan Sarandon revealed Tuesday that she had to change her phone number after President Trump won the election because Hillary Clinton’s supporters wouldn’t stop harassing her.

Ms. Sarandon, who campaigned heavily for Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders before switching her support to Green Party candidate Jill Stein, took a lot of criticism during the election for refusing to endorse Mrs. Clinton, the Democratic Party’s nominee. Ms. Sarandon told ABC’s “The View” that after Mr. Trump won, she had to change her personal phone number out of safety concerns.

“I had to change my phone number,” she told co-host Joy Behar, Newsbusters reported.

“Really? You really did?” Ms. Behar asked incredulously.

“Oh, the Hillary people — ‘Are you happy now?’ ” she said, imitating an angry caller.

“Which actually I would have ridden out,” she said. “But my sons explained to me that once they have your number, they can hack into everything.”

Ms. Sarandon repeatedly criticized Mrs. Clinton during the campaign, arguing that the former secretary of state was “more dangerous” than Mr. Trump. When endorsing Ms. Stein for president, Ms. Sarandon said that her “fear” of Mr. Trump wasn’t enough to make her vote for Mrs. Clinton, “with her record of corruption.”

On Wednesday, the 70-year-old actress said Mr. Trump has been a “terrible” president.

“He doesn’t have a follow-through, this guy,” she said. “It’s like he’s playing president, but he doesn’t know the ramifications a lot of times. He hasn’t thought it through.”
