In November, Pauley had taken a stand against the current president. She encouraged Christians to vote against Republicans in the midterm elections.
She stated that President Donald Trump’s ideologies are the "opposite of Jesus.” She revealed she is a person who makes her decisions based on her faith and he goes against her beliefs.
“Where is Jesus when voting for someone who does the opposite of Jesus? I'm serious. I'm a faith-driven person. Jesus didn't make fun of people, say horribly mean things, spread hate about race, women, handicapped and pretty much any target that makes the hateful cheer,” she wrote. "I'm happy with my vote, as a Christian, to listen to love and Jesus and vote against Trump and his pals in any way,” she continued. “He is a mean, mean man. He's fooling you. Stop laughing with him. It's cruelty, and it's wrong."
