How many celebrities have you seen “joke” about threatening President Trump with violence since he was elected?
It’s hard to keep count at this point, but Madonna, Johnny Depp, George Lopez, Robert De Niro, Rosie O’Donnell, and Kathy Griffin are just a few.
And now a top Deep State journalist has joined the list by disgustingly joking about President Trump catching the coronavirus.
The spread of this bizarre hatred against Donald Trump is a pandemic just like the one at hand right now. Luckily for us, President Trump is ferocious in fighting back against the morally bankrupt celebrities and so-called “journalists” who wish him harm.
It’s ironic that these celebrity elitists perpetuate a moral high ground – meanwhile, they’re being exposed in Sony email hacks, the #MeToo movement, and Harvey Weinstein’s trials as actual misogynist, racist, and bigoted hypocrites.
About two weeks ago, actor Michael Rapaport – best known for his long-ago roles in “True Romance” and “Kiss of Death” – posted a profanity-laced video regarding the reopening of America and suggested that President Trump should send his children out first to “take the cars, the trains, the buses, the Amtrak, let them play in the park.”
He added, “And if everything’s good after five days of them playing in the streets, we’ll all go back to [work].”
Two weeks later, the New Yorker’s Philip Gourevitch carried the torch of depravity from Rappaport.
When a tweet was posted that said, “Boris Johnson’s illness has helped unite Britain. Would America unite if Trump became ill,” Gourevitch replied, “Only one way to find out.”
But would these people ever have implied or suggested something similar about former President Barack Obama?
Of course not.
And had anyone done so, it would’ve made national news for weeks and the person who said it would have become public enemy number one.
In President Trump’s era, however, a famous person can “joke” about his death and it’s swept under the rug if not celebrated completely.
Bill Maher of HBO’s “Real Time” has said on his show multiple times that he hopes President Trump is still President when there’s a recession because it would be “good for America.”
And when someone actually pushed back at Maher for his comment – because of the many lives a recession would ruin – Maher callously responded that it would “be worth it.”
Unfortunately, this is the kind of vitriol we’re up against and it doesn’t look like it will get any better in time for the upcoming 2020 general election.
