Martha Stewart Says She Will Cast Her Vote for Hillary Clinton

On Sunday afternoon, business heavy-hitter Martha Stewart stated in no uncertain terms that she will vote for Hillary Clinton in November.

“This is the most important election of the last hundred years,” she told CNN Money. “We have to be very certain that we elect a person who has experience, knowledge, a base of education in the world of world politics as well as domestic politics and so obviously I’m voting for Hillary Clinton.”


Stewart’s endorsement of Clinton simultaneously functions as an indictment against GOP presidential nominee—and shrieking, peach-fuzzed testicle—Donald Trump, whom she refers to as “totally unprepared for what comes.”

This endorsement won’t put a strain on the relationship between Stewart and Trump — they already dislike each other. In 2006, Trump served as executive producer for Stewart’s Apprentice spinoff show, The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. But when the show earned low ratings, Trump attacked Stewart and, according to Politico, claimed that his own show was adversely impacted as a result. Stewart has since referred to Trump’s behavior as “unforgivable.”

Perhaps, then, it’s no surprise that Stewart’s denouncement of Trump was especially eviscerating.

“There is so much to know and so much to learn and so much diplomacy and kindness and introspection that goes with that kind of job,” she remarked to CNN Money. “And it does not exist in the world of Donald Trump.”
