Liberal Natalie Portman gets in the gutter to trash ‘old friend’ turned ‘super-villain’ Jared Kushner

Actress Natalie Portman trashed President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, an old friend, during an appearance Thursday on “The Late Show.”

Host Stephen Colbert was praising Portman for the cerebral roles she has played in films, before noting that she went to Harvard University and was therefore a “smarty pants.” The actress was humble in her response, prompting Colbert to ask if they “let dummies into Harvard?” It was at this point that he noted that Portman graduated in the same class as Kushner.

“We were friendly,” Portman said of her fellow Jewish classmate, as Colbert pushed for more details.

“I heard he wasn’t that great of a student,” he then said.

“That is… true,” Portman replied hesitantly with a laugh, as he egged her on. “What can I say on TV?”

Anything you want,” Colbert answered, as images of ratings gold danced before his eyes. “It’s a free country.”

“The last days of, maybe,” Portman countered. “Right?”

She then blasted Kushner, not just as a villain, but as a “super villain.”

“I don’t know,” Portman said. “Unfortunately, it’s not very — there’s not a lot funny to say about someone you were friends with becoming a super villain.”

The Barack Obama-supporting actress who once said she was “upset” when Trump was elected president, went on the make it clear that she has little use for anyone who doesn’t share her particular views on politics and life.

“He said in some interview that all of the friends he’s lost through politics is like exfoliating. I was like, OK…”

“So you’re a dead skin cell?” Colbert chimed in, to which his guest replied: “Proudly.”

Portman was reportedly on the guest list for Jared and Ivanka Trump’s wedding in 2009, according to the Daily Mail. The couple returned the favor and attended the liberal actresses wedding in 2012. With old “friends” like that, who need enemies?
