Actress Ellen Page fought back tears during an emotional rant against Vice President Mike Pence Thursday night, telling CBS host Stephen Colbert that the conservative former Indiana governor wants to cause “suffering” to the LGBTQ community.

Mrs. Page, who married Canadian dance choreographer Emma Portner last year, appeared on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” saying she was “really fired up” about what happened to Jussie Smollett, the “Empire” star who says he was attacked and peppered with racist and homophobic insults in downtown Chicago this week.

“It feels impossible to not feel this way now with the president and the vice president, Mike Pence, who wishes I couldn’t be married,” Mrs. Page said. “Let’s be clear: The vice president of America wishes I didn’t have the love [I have] with my wife. He wanted to ban that in Indiana. He believes in conversion therapy. He has hurt LGBTQ people so badly as the governor of Indiana.”

The “Flatliners” star then attempted to link Mr. Pence’s record on gay rights to the reported attack against Mr. Smollett.

“Connect the dots,” she said. “This is what happens. If you are in a position of power and you hate people and you want to cause suffering to them, you go through the trouble, you spend your career trying to cause suffering, what do you think is going to happen?”
