Isaiah Washington is a rare man in Hollywood.
He is an honest man with a conscience and the ability to think for himself. He recently left the Democrats by embracing the Walk Away movement. His visit to the Trump White House also helped.
FOX News reports:
‘Grey’s Anatomy’ star Isaiah Washington opens up about decision to leave the Democratic party after Trump White House visit
On Fox Nation’s latest episode of “Nuff Said,” “Grey’s Anatomy” star Isaiah Washington opened up about his decision to leave the Democratic Party, and the reaction he got from the Hollywood community after publicly declaring his support for the #WalkAway movement.
“Walking away is a sacrifice,” Washington said. “There’s a risk and there’s a penalty for it but you have to walk away when it matters…and the reason I chose to walk away from the Democratic party…is that something doesn’t’ feel right.”
Washington blamed the Democrats for “not doing enough” and pointed to their lack of action for the black community as an example.
Washington, who once played Dr. Preston Burke in the hit TV series, said he was never asked about his politics during his two-year career on the show, and that his political activism developed recently after he attended a celebration at the White House commemorating Trump’s support of the First Step Act.
The bipartisan prison reform bill reduced sentences due to “earned good time,” and “assists former prisoners in reacclimating into society upon release.”
This tweet from Washington speaks volumes:
I voted for 44 twice. I even checked my emails in his Senate Office while lobbying for Salone to be given another chance to rebrand. Not once in 8 years was I given any support regarding Africa or the Black Agenda, but 45 invites me to the WH to celebrate the #FirstStepAct 🤷🏾♂️

He also loves our constitutional rights:
I’m baffled w/h the anti-gun advocates in America. The hypocrisy is insane. We have thousands of gun laws all over the country & laws against murder/attempted murder. What sane person would choose not to lock their doors to their home or car just because they haven’t been robbed? pic.twitter.com/OvGOpkloYH

Maybe he should think about running for office.
