Not everyone in Hollywood, or California for that matter, is a left-leaning Democrat. One Republican in particular, Kimberlin Brown Pelzer, spoke up about how hard it is for actors (and others) to be a conservative in a blue state. Pelzer is best known to soap fans for her iconic bad girl, trouble-causing stints as Sheila Carter on CBS' The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Pelzer appeared on Fox & Friends First this morning ahead of President Trump's visit to the Golden State. She talked about how hard it is for actors to be open about their political views, stating their livelihoods are at stake,

I’m very lucky because I have other businesses to rely on, but there are actors that truly are conservative out there that are afraid to come forward, because they’re going to lose their livelihood.

She cited recent Twitter posts by Debra Messing and Eric McCormack as "reverse McCarthyism at its best."

She stated she ran for office because she could not stay silent any longer. Pelzer lost her bid for a seat in California's 36th congressional district in 2017. She feels the bullying from the left will backfire and said, "The tide is going to change, and it’s going to change for the better."
