Don’t mess with mama!
While appearing on British network Channel 4 on Wednesday, Jennifer Lawrence shared her thoughts on the wave of natural disasters creating chaos in the United States and beyond.
The “Mother” star suggested that Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma are signs of Mother Nature’s “wrath” over Donald Trump’s presidency which, she noted, has broadened the platform for climate change deniers.
“You know, it’s the new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognize it. It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting,” she said.
Lawrence said during the appearance there was “an end-of-days feeling,” globally.
“You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage and wrath.”
The actress has been outspoken in her disdain for Trump, 71, and the rhetoric his election to office has given rise to.
In August she joined in with other Twitter and Facebook users in exposing neo-Nazis and white supremacists after the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Va.
Lawrence posted a message to her 16 million followers, asking that they help to identify men and women who attended the hate-fueled event that left one woman dead.
“These are the faces of hate. Look closely and post anyone you find,” she wrote, sharing a picture of a group of marchers carrying tiki torches and flags with swastikas.
“You can’t hide with the internet you pathetic cowards!”
Immediately after Trump’s election she sent a hopeful message to her fans in a Vice essay. She urged women to remain positive and continue fighting.
“We’re all allowed to be sad that the present isn’t what we thought it was. But we mustn’t be defeated. We will keep educating ourselves and working twice as hard as the man next to us because we know now that it is not fair. It is not fair in the workplace, so you make it impossible to fail. And like Hillary (Clinton), it might not work,” she wrote.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence appeared to claim in an interview this week that the deadly hurricanes slashing through parts of the United States are nature’s wrathful response to the election of Donald Trump.
Appearing on British network Channel 4 to discuss her new horror film, mother!, Lawrence was asked about the sort of “end-of-days feeling” in America.
“You know, it’s this new language that’s forming. I don’t even recognize it,” the actress said. “It’s also scary to know that climate change is due to human activity, and we continue to ignore it, and the only voice that we really have is through voting.”
When the reporter mentioned that Americans did vote, Lawrence replied saying “it was really startling” when Trump was elected.
The Academy Award-winner continued, suggesting that the deadly devastation of Hurricane Harvey and Irma, a massive hurricane headed for Florida, may be nature’s response to Trump.
“You know, you’re watching these hurricanes now, and it’s really hard, especially while promoting this movie, not to feel Mother Nature’s rage and wrath,” Lawrence said.
Opening up about the “really polarizing and upsetting” nature of politics in the U.S., the 27-year-old star said: “You know, I’ve heard things and seen things on TV in my own country that devastate me and make me sick, and it’s just really confusing.”
The Hollywood A-lister was a very vocal critic of Trump and his supporters during the presidential election. She once claimed that Trump’s election would mark the world’s end.
“If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” the Hunger Games star said in 2015 at a promotional press junket.
In August, Lawrence began raffling off a chance for fans to fly to California to go wine-tasting with her in exchange for a donation to a non-profit working to eliminate corruption in politics.
Mother stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier Bardem, Ed Harris, and Michelle Pfeiffer and opens Sept. 17.
