Eva Longoria: If Trump Asked For My Help, I Would Say ‘Yes’


Actress Eva Longoria appeared on The Late Show and was asked if she were given the opportunity to help President Donald Trump whether or not she would.

Longoria, who is a political activist and previously campaigned for former President Barack Obama, was pressed on a hypothetical by Stephen Colbert.

“If this president called and asked for your help to make this a better country, the Commander in Chief had said, ‘Eva Longoria, I need your help to make this a better world, would you say yes? Would you help me?'” Colbert asked.

“Yes,” Longoria responded. “It’s hard to say no to your country, you know? You have to take up that responsibility. I actually had that fear that he was going to call.”

“A lot of women do,” Colbert quipped.

“No, I was meaning like, ‘Oh my God, you know, I didn’t vote for him.’ But then I thought about it, too, and if I was called to do some sort of good for the country, of course I would try to educate him- specifically on the Latino community and the issues that we face,” the former Desperate Housewives star continued. “And I think I could be of great help, yeah.”

Colbert warned Longoria that she may not be “at the head of the class” if she tried to “educate” Trump.

When asked if she would ever run for political office, Longoria quickly said “no.”

“Would you?” she shot back.

“Noooo,” Colbert firmly responded.
