It would appear Susan Sarandon was arrested while protesting the government’s migration policy.
Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting. #WomenDisobey

From BBC News:
Police in Washington say 575 people were charged with unlawfully demonstrating on Thursday.
The women were protesting against the government’s migration policy and cases of children being separated from their parents on the southern border.
Further protests are scheduled for Saturday.
The actress, who won an Oscar for Dead Man Walking in 1996 and also starred in 1991’s Thelma and Louise and The Witches of Eastwick in 1987, announced her arrest on Twitter.
Don’t feel bad, we didn’t notice that she got arrested either.
Do the cops now offer one self-righteous tweet in addition to the one phone call? https://t.co/v37NwQ3s3p

It’s in our Miranda Rights, duh.
And even though Susan spent her first few moments under arrest to tweet her followers that she had been arrested protesting, it seems the Resistance was less than impressed with her efforts.
You are ridiculous. Still think Trump and Hillary are the same?

This went well for Susan.
Remember when you said Hillary was as bad as Trump? Or that electing Trump would be good bc it would bring about "the revolution" more quickly? We warned you Trump would attack immigrants but you used your privilege to say "Vote Stein!" With friends like you, who needs enemies.

I really don’t care, do you?
If you had voted for Hillary, you wouldn’t be incarcerated right now. Isn’t it ironic? Yeah, I really do think.

So are the differences between Hillary and Trump starting to come to light for you?

Seeing a pattern forming here, Susan.
.Hypocrisy at work here.
Still feel that Clinton would have been worse for this country than the man in office today?
Take some responsibility.
