"I grew up in a republican family and voted for John McCain in 2008. But through [Barack] Obama's presidency, and growing up to realise I was voting against my own rights, I am proud to say I am a Democrat."
Jennifer added the hashtags "#Obama #HRC #BidenHarris".
Jennifer revealed on the podcast that she had "changed [her] politics based on the things [she] learned" and said that Donald Trump's presidency "changed everything".
She explained: "This is an impeached president who's broken many laws and has refused to condemn white supremacy, and it feels like there has been a line drawn in the sand. I don't think it's right ... it just changes things for me. I don't want to support a president who supports white supremacists."
Speaking to V Magazine earlier this month, Jennifer endorsed Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for president and vice-president, explaining: "Voting is the foundation of our democracy and our freedom. And I would consider this upcoming election the most consequential of our lifetime. I'm voting for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris this year because Donald Trump has and will continue to put himself before the safety and well-being of America. He does not represent my values as an American, and most importantly as a human being."
