Isaiah Washington’s recent comments on Twitter have some wondering if he’s suffering from some kind of breakdown.
The Grey’s Anatomy actor recently revealed he was a supporter of Donald Trump, and now, he’s comparing Black Democrats who have criticized his “coming out” for the current president.
“I dated a woman that was addicted to crack,” Washington tweeted on Thursday. “I became addicted to trying to save her. She stole from me and disappeared for days, worrying me to death. I really loved her and when I tried to reason with her to get her help, she refused, berated & attacked me much like Black Dems.”

Since the tweet, Washington has also tweeted a meme of Donald Trump “draining the swamp” and some disturbing tweets with explicit memes attached.
Apparently, I scared the Dems so bad yesterday, that they aren’t going to give away anymore free phones. They’re considering giving away these for votes in 2020...#LRA #WalkAway🇺🇸 #Tangibles2020 pic.twitter.com/11t9V1kvUI— Isaiah Washington (@IWashington) September 7, 2019
Earlier this week, Isaiah Washington did an interview with Fox News during which he explained why he was “walking away” from the Democratic party.
“Walking away… is a sacrifice, it’s a risk and there’s a penalty for it,” he said. “But I will only walk away when it matters and the reason why I’ve chosen to walk away from the Democratic party as I know it and walk away from the Republican party as I don’t know it, is that something doesn’t feel right… If I look at the political lineage of the Democratic party over the last 50 years of my lifetime… and very little has changed in my community… then I have some questions. I’ve got more than questions.”
Since making the tweet comparing a woman who was on crack to Black Democrats, many are slamming Washington. See what some are saying below.
If you choose to be a part of the Republican party, you have to acknowledge the anti Blackness that's within it, and that is the driving force of the party currently. How do you turn a blind eye to actual Nazis/Nationalists/Supremacists?— 🕶 (@LoisLayne18) September 7, 2019

Take any responsibility for your own actions, or is it always some woman’s fault?— Virginia Dark (@virginia_dark) September 7, 2019
