This is why Hollywood Should Blacklist Trump-Detractor Entertainers by Sarah Taylor

Excerpts:

….Despite the poor endings that entertainers often meet after threatening Trump, many of them continue to do it, and Depp is just the latest in a long line of those abusing the privilege of free speech.

In the United States, it is still a federal crime to threaten a president, sitting or otherwise:

“Whoever knowingly and willfully threatens to kill, kidnap, or inflict bodily harm upon — a former President or a member of the immediate family of a former President; a member of the immediate family of the President, the President-elect, the Vice President, or the Vice President-elect; a major candidate for the office of President or Vice President, or a member of the immediate family of such candidate; or a person protected by the Secret Service under section 3056(a)(6); shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than 5 years, or both.”

[end quote]

= = = = = = = = =

Do we see any liberal entertainers sitting in jail for remarks that they’ve made? No. And frankly, what makes these “celebrities” think they have a free pass at breaking the law when the common man and woman would likely be considered a terrorist or treasonist and incarcerated immediately for making similar remarks?

Conservatives Under Fire in Hollywood (audio file on page)

Hollywood is known for liberal politics, which means people with conservative views often feel the need to keep quiet.

Conservatives are being targeted in what some say is a form of blacklisting happening again. The Hollywood blacklist was a 1950’s list of of writers, actors and others accused of being communist sympathizers. Studios were pressured not to hire them.

Seven Celebrities Who Believe It’s Not Their Job to Talk Politics

by Jerome Hudson

The 2016 presidential campaign and subsequent election of Donald Trump inspired some of Hollywood’s biggest stars to find their political voices.

From Meryl Streep’s anti-Trump speech at the Golden Globes to the numerous star-studded pro-Hillary Clinton public service announcements during the campaign, left-wing celebrities have kicked up their political advocacy considerably in the last few years.

However, not every Hollywood star wants to talk about politics, or even thinks its their obligation to do so.

Below is a list of celebrities who believe it’s not their job to discuss politics in public.

Melissa Francis’ journey from child star to news anchor

Excerpts:

But that [Francis’ current success as a news anchor] doesn’t mean Francis hasn’t experienced her fair share of failures along the way.

She’s been spotted wearing a kitchen uniform by her Harvard classmates, been fired from two TV news jobs, fled an early job after her boss’ flirtations went too far, and, upon meeting Megyn Kelly for the first time, accidentally called her “Kelly.”

None of these missteps has held Francis back, and she’s now sharing her secret formula for success in her latest book, “Lessons From the Prairie: The Surprising Secrets to Happiness, Success, and (Sometimes Just) Survival I Learned on America’s Favorite Show” (Weinstein Books, out now).

“Getting fired was devastating, but that’s how I learned how to turn disaster into golden opportunity,” Francis, 44, tells The Post. “I have really and sincerely used it when life has knocked me on my ass.”

She identifies four steps in the survive-and-thrive process.

Liberal actress Rosie O’Donnell posted on her social media account that she had donated money to a fund supporting Reality Winner, the NSA federal contractor who was arrested for leaking confidential information to the media.

O’Donnell posted a message with the link to the GoFundMe account, saying, “i support reality winner,” and, “speak truth to power.” Another post called Winner a “brave young patriot.”

Winner was arrested Monday after the FBI investigation determined she had printed a highly confidential report and delivered it to the news outlet, The Intercept. While the outlet had obtained the report anonymously, the criminal complaint from the FBI indicates that The Intercept accidentally helped them uncover the identity of the leaker when they sought confirmation from the government of the veracity of the leaked document.

SHAKESPEARE IN THE PARK | June 12, 2017

Shakespeare Play with Trump-Looking Julius Caesar Draws Criticism

The Public Theater’s production of “Julius Caesar” in New York uses the words written by playwright William Shakespeare 400 years ago.

The difference is the actor playing Julius Caesar looks a lot like President Donald Trump. And, as anyone familiar with Shakespeare’s play knows, Caesar is killed in Act 3 by senators who fear he had become too power hungry.

Laura Sheaffer has attended Public Theater’s Free Shakespeare plays in New York City’s Central Park for years.

But she objected to seeing a character looking like Trump covered with blood in the assassination scene. As he dies, the actor delivers one of Shakespeare’s most famous lines, “Et Tu, Brute” — meant to show Caesar’s surprise that his good friend Brutus joined his killing.

Sheaffer says, “I don’t love President Trump, but he’s the president. You can’t assassinate him on a stage.”

Should Conservatives Cheer as Sponsors Withdraw From Theater Production Portraying Trump’s Assassination?

Lefty Actors Are Beginning to Fear Donald Trump

Excerpts:

by Kyle Smith

Two corporate sponsors have fled Eustis’s staging of the current Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar because of its undisguised Trump trolling. Before suffering multiple simultaneous perforation in a bloody spectacle, the doomed Roman looks and sounds like Donald Trump, right down to the curious yellow thatch of hair and the too-long tie.

Eustis even has Donald J. Caesar make a joke about murder on Fifth Avenue, in case costuming his raucous fans in MAGA caps and American-flag shirts had left any doubt about Eustis’s intentions. Delta Airlines was not amused. “The graphic staging of Julius Caesar at this summer’s Free Shakespeare in the Park does not reflect Delta Air Lines’ values,” the carrier said in a statement, adding that Eustis’s “artistic and creative direction crossed the line on the standards of good taste.”

Delta is not only backing out of this production, it is terminating its role as the official airline of the Public Theater, which mounts the Shakespeare in the Park plays.

Bank of America also withdrew, albeit only from this production, saying the staging was obviously intended to “provoke and offend” and adding that the bank would not have sponsored such an interpretation had it known about it. Other sponsors include Penguin Random House, the billboard giant Outfront, and the local ABC affiliate, which is owned by Disney.

Eustis’s conception probably struck him as no more than routine leftist theater shenanigans. But Shakespeare in the Park isn’t some scruffy off-off-Broadway church-basement offering. It’s one of the city’s cultural crown jewels, magnificently nestled in the idyllic confines of the beautiful, 1,800-seat Delacorte Theater, and its cachet attracts rich corporate-sponsorship deals.

Yet corporations don’t want to alienate half their customers, much less be associated with murdering presidents in effigy. Eustis today must be realizing, like Kathy Griffin before him, that he went too far. That wouldn’t matter if revolutionaries didn’t have to eat, too. Being a daring, subversive Marxist is one thing but annoying Delta Airlines is quite another.

Donald Trump blocked Stephen King on Twitter, according to the author

After months of mocking President Donald Trump on Twitter, author Stephen King woke up to the unfortunate news on Tuesday that he had been blocked by the commander-in-chief.

Considering how much more difficult this will make King’s criticism of Trump’s actions and policy, the author was correspondingly despondent: “Trump has blocked me from reading his tweets. I may have to kill myself,” he wrote.

The social media missive was just the latest attack King has lodged at President Trump in recent months.

Last month, the 69-year-old Dark Tower author called Trump “fake” in a Twitter post that went viral online. “The news is real. The president is fake.” he wrote.

Johnny Depp cracks joke hinting at Trump assassination

by OLIVER GETTELL

Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp could find himself in deep water after joking about Donald Trump and presidential assassinations at the Glastonbury Festival.

“Can we bring Trump here?” Depp asked a crowd of attendees Thursday while introducing a screening of his 2004 film The Libertine. “I think he needs help.”

The 54-year-old actor continued, “This is going to be in the press and it’ll be horrible. But I like that you’re all a part of it.” Then, in an apparent reference to John Wilkes Booth, Depp said, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

Video from the event indicates that Depp’s remarks drew mostly cheers, and some jeers. “I want to clarify, I’m not an actor,” he added. “I lie for a living.”

Depp has not been shy about his disapproval of Trump in the past.

Johnny Depp apologizes for ‘bad joke’ about Trump: ‘I intended no malice’

by Katherine Faulders

June 23, 2017

Johnny Depp has apologized after making controversial comments about President Donald Trump, which caused the White House to issue a statement condemning him.

“I apologize for the bad joke I attempted last night in poor taste about President Trump,” the actor’s rep told ABC News Friday afternoon. “It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone.”

Depp came under fire for bringing up Trump on Thursday evening. While introducing his new film, “The Libertine,” at England’s Glastonbury Festival, he told the crowd that Trump “needs help.”

…. In a statement, hours later, the White House said, “President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead,” the White House statement read. “I hope that some of Mr. Depp’s colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official.”

Depp did not say whether he was referring to the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln by actor John Wilkes Booth in 1865.

In addition to the White House, the Secret Service issued its own statement.

“We actively monitor open source reporting, including social media networks, and we evaluate potential threats. For security reasons, we cannot discuss specifically nor in general terms the means and methods of how we perform our protective responsibilities,” the Secret Service told ABC News.

Johnny Depp has issued an apology for a controversial comment about President Donald Trump, asking, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

“It did not come out as intended, and I intended no malice. I was only trying to amuse, not to harm anyone,” the actor said in a statement to People on Friday.

Depp’s joke, in reference to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865, was made during an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival. “I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living,” he added at the U.K. music festival. “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”

Director Rob Reiner Calls for ‘All Out War’ Against Trump, Fox News

Liberal Hollywood Director Rob Reiner is calling for an “all out war” against President Donald Trump and Fox News.

Reiner, who frequently turns to Twitter to promote unsubstantiated Democrat claims that Trump (DT) has committed crimes, took to social media Sunday to accuse Trump (DT) of treasonous “colluding with the enemy” – and Fox News of covering it up:

“When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason”

Back on June 15th, the day after a gunman’s attack on Republicans at a Virginia baseball field left Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) in critical condition, Reiner pounced on the opportunity to turn attention away from the shooting to Democrats’ investigation of Trump’s unproven ties to Russia:

“The tragedy in Virginia has brought us together. Now we must come together over Russia’s attack on our democracy. POTUS, stop obstructing!”

In addition to accusing Trump of treason and obstruction, Reiner has also attacked Trump’s supporters by labeling them as racists.

Rosie O’Donnell is encouraging her Twitter followers to play an online game that allows players to push President Trump off of a cliff.

“Push Trump Off A Cliff Again,” O’Donnell tweeted along with a link to the game. The game’s name is a riff off of Trump’s campaign slogan “Make American Great Again.”

Players of the controversial game can either push Trump off a cliff, into a volcano, into a manhole, or have him eaten by a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Many fans took to Twitter to express their outrage of the 55-year-old’s tweet.

ALYSSA MILANO | July 2017

Crazed Lib Alyssa Milano Wants to ‘Hold Trump Accountable for Russia’

Milano and Supernatural actor Misha Collins have started a website for the sole purpose of “holding the Trump administration accountable for collusion with Russia.”

The website, tellyourreps.com, encourages people to contact their lawmakers to “put country before party.” The front page of the site says “this issue is bigger than partisan politics; it’s about safeguarding our democratic institutions.”

The site offers “optional talking points” for talking to either Democratic or Republican representatives. Viewers are encouraged to “thank [Democratic Reps] for standing up to the White House, and for ensuring that the legislature maintains checks and balances.”  However, when it comes to Republicans, there is a different stance. “Tell them that you’re an active vote…very concerned about the Trump White House’s connection with Russia. Urge them to hold the WH accountable.” So bipartisan the site isn’t.

Milano ironically stated to the Daily Beast: “It’s very easy to sit behind our computers and bitch about the administration, but in everything I do I want to empower people to make a difference,” she told Stern. Which is a nice change. Her tweets have been nothing but a constant stream of trash-talk aimed at the Trump administration. In fact, the pinned tweet on her account said, “Those that tell me not to tweet politics because I am an uninformed celebrity are the same people that voted for … an uninformed celebrity.”

Regarding this remark by Milano:

“Those that tell me not to tweet politics because I am an uninformed celebrity are the same people that voted for … an uninformed celebrity.”

Nope. I did not vote for ANYONE in the 2016 election, and I am still opposed to celebrities publicly pontificating about politics constantly, especially if it’s to mock or insult people who voted differently from them, and I also tire of liberal celebrities who will not stop publicly criticizing whomever the latest Republican fixture is, whether it’s Trump now or George W. Bush back in the day.

MILITARY TRANSGENDER BAN

Hollywood Outraged Over Trump’s Plan for Transgender Military Ban: “You Will Regret It”  – July 26, 2017

George Takei put Trump “on notice that you just pissed off the wrong community,” while Laverne Cox tells THR the Obama-era policy reversal “continues to send the message to trans Americans that our lives, our safety and service are less valuable and unwanted in this country.”

President Trump drew swift ire from Hollywood, politicians, civilians and journalists alike after a series of Wednesday morning tweets about his plans to ban transgender people from serving in the U.S. military.

Trump took to Twitter to deliver the announcement in three separate tweets, saying the U.S. government “will not accept or allow” transgender people to serve “in any capacity” in the military. “Our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory,” he wrote. “And cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

…Orange Is the New Black transgender star and activist Laverne Cox, in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, echoed the sentiment that the move continues to send the wrong message to trans Americans “that our lives, our safety and service are less valuable and unwanted in this country, the country I love and hold so dear”

J.K. Rowling among celebs calling out Trump over white nationalist rally in Charlottesville

August 12, 2017, by Derek Lawrence

UPDATE: Donald Trump has joined those condemning the white nationalist rally taking place in Charlottesville, Virginia.

After many had pointed out the POTUS’ silence on the issue, he tweeted, “We ALL must be united & condemn all that hate stands for. There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one!”

EARLIER: Donald Trump’s Twitter feed has been noticeably quiet early on Saturday, which in the wake of the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia has caused J.K. Rowling and more to call out the president.

The Harry Potter author was one of many celebrities to criticize POTUS for his silence on the disturbing scene that began Friday night on the University of Virginia campus, where ahead of Saturday’s “Unite the Right” rally, white nationalists marched with tiki-style torches.

…While First Lady Melania Trump did condemn the events, Chelsea Clinton, Rob Reiner, and more joined Rowling in pointing out her husband’s silence.

I don’t understand why foreign liberal celebrity types feel it’s their place to criticize all of American life or politics, and on a regular basis?

I’m still waiting for liberals to acknowledge that some Muslims kill Non-Muslims or form rape gangs in the name of Islam, or otherwise under other Islamic influence.

Obama, former President, never wanted to refer to extremist Islam when referring to terror acts committed by extremist Muslims.

But now, we see liberals in a tizzy because they don’t think Trump was specific enough or fast enough in condemning what went on in Charlottesville? Kind of hypocritical.

MICHAEL MOORE | Aug 2017

Michael Moore’s Screaming Celeb Trump Protest: ‘We Have Power!’

By Corinne Weaver | August 16, 2017 1:18 PM EDT
Money walks, talks, and screams. At a protest, naturally, it should scream louder. So it should come as no surprise that some of Donald Trump’s famous (and wealthy) opponents went on a loud chanting protest in front of the Trump Tower on August 15, led by everyone’s favorite wealthy protester, director Michael Moore.

 After the showing of Moore’s Broadway play The Terms of My Surrender (but only after — remember, Moore needs that paycheck!) a lot of celebrities joined Moore on a protest at the Trump Tower. The protesters (and the audience) included Mark Ruffalo, Harvey Weinstein, Marisa Tomei, Olivia Wilde, and Zoe Kazan.

Among the chants of “Hey hey, ho ho, Donald Trump has got to go!”, Moore kicked off the protest with the statement, “There’s Trump Tower everybody! And he’s in there right now! We are here to perform a citizen’s arrest!”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the protest was also “a candlelight vigil for Charlottesville victim Heather Heyer.” But there was an awful lot of screaming and chanting for the protest to be a vigil as well.

Egged on by the other protesters, actress Olivia Wilde screamed: “Donald Trump is not a legitimate president!”

Michael Moore’s anti-Trump Broadway play ripped as ‘self-aggrandizing,’ ‘infomercial for his brand’

By Jessica Chasmar – The Washington Times – Friday, August 11, 2017

Michael Moore’s one-man Broadway play pointing out the absurdity of Donald Trump’s presidency is being ripped by critics as self-aggrandizing, preachy and monotonous.

New York Times critic Jesse Green, who lauded Mr. Moore’s long career of progressive activism, said the “shaggy and self-aggrandizing” production was like “being stuck at Thanksgiving dinner with a garrulous, self-regarding, time-sucking uncle. Gotta love him — but maybe let’s turn on the television.”

Mr. Moore’s website describes “The Terms of My Surrender,” which opened Thursday at the Belasco Theatre, as a “hilarious satirical tour through the depraved new world we find ourselves in since appointing a madman as the leader of the free world.”

Michael Moore calls out Trump backers: ‘If you still support the racist, you are the racist’

Aug 16, 2017

Michael Moore has not been shy about expressing his opposition to Donald Trump, including taking part in a Tuesday protest outside Trump Tower. Now the filmmaker is unloading on supporters of the president, suggesting that they’re “racist” and likening them to enablers of rape.

Appearing on CNN for an interview with Don Lemon on Tuesday, Moore ripped Trump for his “both sides” comments regarding the violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, and also criticized those who still stand behind him.

“If you vote for a racist, what are you then? Because it sure sounds like racism to me,” Moore said, adding that Trump “is absolutely a racist.”

…Moore said it’s “absolutely criminal to stand behind the people who killed Heather Heyer” and likened those who continue to support Trump to rape enablers. When Lemon told Moore that he would receive criticism for the “uncomfortable comparison,” Moore responded, “I hope I do. I’ve had it.”

“If you still support the racist, you are the racist,” he concluded. “Anybody who votes for and supports a racist is a racist. You are culpable, white America. I’m sorry, but there is redemption for you.”

Actress Chloe Moretz on Melania, Ivanka Trump: ‘Women deserve better role models’

Aug 10, 2017

Actress Chloe Grace Moretz alleged during an interview this week that first lady Melania Trump and White House adviser Ivanka Trump are disrespected and mistreated by President Trump, which makes them poor role models for American women.

Speaking to Variety magazine, the 20-year-old “Kick-Ass” star mentioned some of her favorite female role models, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who she endorsed in the 2016 presidential election.

When asked for her thoughts about Melania and Ivanka Trump, Miss Moretz hesitated: “This is a difficult one to word,” she said.

“I think some people are in a bubble and it’s a very sad bubble,” she told Variety.

Mark Ruffalo, Michael Moore Lead Protest Vigil Outside Trump Tower

Aug 15, 2017

Filmmaker Michael Moore and actor Mark Ruffalo led a vigil near Trump Tower in Manhattan on Tuesday night in memory of Heather Heyer, the woman killed on Saturday during the violence that erupted at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Moore took the extraordinary step of chartering buses to bring members of the audience for his one-man Broadway show “The Terms of My Surrender” at the Belasco Theater a few blocks to the Trump Tower area on Fifth Avenue for the vigil. Ruffalo was a special guest at Moore’s performance on Tuesday night.

Moore and Ruffalo expressed outrage at President Trump’s comments on Tuesday at a news conference in which he spread some of the blame for Saturday’s horrifying display of bigotry and violence to what he called “alt-left” activists in addition to the rally organizers.

Olivia Wilde, currently appearing on Broadway in “1984,” and actress-writer Zoe Kazan were also among the familiar faces at the rally.

…Moore and Ruffalo expressed outrage at President Trump’s comments on Tuesday at a news conference in which he spread some of the blame for Saturday’s horrifying display of bigotry and violence to what he called “alt-left” activists in addition to the rally organizers.

Olivia Wilde, currently appearing on Broadway in “1984,” and actress-writer Zoe Kazanwere also among the familiar faces at the rally.

…In an Instagram video posted Tuesday night, Ruffalo said he was spearheading the vigil with Moore to send a message to Trump, who has been staying at his former home in Trump Tower since Monday.

“I want him to hear us,” Ruffalo said. “I want him to know that an American killed on an American soil by a Nazi is not acceptable.”

Trump’s initial comments after Saturday’s deadly encounters and his remarks at Tuesday’s press conference have spurred widespread outrage.

Self-promoting TOOLS: Dana Loesch mocks Hollywood taking selfies during ‘POWERFUL’ Trump protest

Aug 17, 2017 Thursday

Don’cha love it when the Hollywood elite poses for video and selfies while pretending to care about the little people?

So adorbs.

[Tweet by Dana Loesch –
Seems like nothing but a self-promotion tool for these celebrities. Taking pics of yourself protesting? OK.]

Because nothing says you’re protesting evil like posing for lots of selfies and videos showing how pretty, rich, famous and fabulous you are.

…It’s all about them. And Hollywood.

It always is.

JENNIFER LAWRENCE | August 2017

I read that at least one guy was mistakenly identified as being a Neo-Nazi because of this:

Facebookers slam Jennifer Lawrence for call to ID neo-Nazis

Commentary: The actress faces criticism for encouraging her Facebook followers to join in the identification of the Charlottesville marchers. She responds with a famous quote.

….This hasn’t stopped Jennifer Lawrence for launching her own doxxing campaign. The actress took to her Facebook account on Monday to post images of the marchers and declare: “These are the faces of hate. Look closely and post anyone you find. You can’t hide with the internet you pathetic cowards!”

But some on Facebook have since questioned whether Lawrence was doing the right thing.

“Jennifer Lawrence calling for people’s private lives to be invaded because of their personal beliefs (no matter how vile) is ironic,” said Rick Carr.

This is surely a reference to nude pictures of Lawrence that were stolen and dissipated on the web. (The hacker went to jail.)

Rosie O’Donnell Calls Trump Supporters Nazis

Rosie O’Donnell: Only Nazis support Donald Trump

Aug 18, 2017 | By Sasha Savitsky, Fox News

If you “stand” with President Trump then you’re a Nazi, according to Rosie O’Donnell.

The comedian took her frustrations to Twitter saying anyone who “stands” or “works” with “Adolf Trump” is a Nazi.

“if u stand next 2 and work with adolf trump – yes u f–king are a nazi,” O’Donnell tweeted Tuesday.

The 55-year-old shared several messages on her Twitter account in response to Trump’s press conference during which he criticized the media’s coverage of Saturday’s deadly attack at a political protest in Charlottesville, Virginia.

O’Donnell tweeted, “republicans – this is on you – every single one of you who stand by this madman – do something – denounce him – file articles of impeachment.”

Eminem bashed Trump and momentarily forgot his “Stan” lyrics at last night’s Scotland show

Dressed in a “FACK TRUMP” T-shirt, Eminem didn’t hold back his feelings about the U.S. President during his concert at Glasgow’s Bellahouston Park Thursday night (Aug. 24).

“Scotland might have to be our new home because right now shit ain’t going so well in the States. And I just want to take this moment right now to say motherfuck Donald Trump,” the rapper declared, just before performing his track “White America,” off of 2002’s The Eminem Show album.

Eminem played a 29-song set in front of reported crowd of 35,000 at the Glasgow gig, his first concert in a year and a half.

Mark Hamill donates to campaign to boot Trump from Twitter

Excerpt:

A lot of people take issue with Donald Trump’s use of Twitter as president of the United States. However, Mark Hamill is taking things to the next level by supporting a campaign to purchase the site for the sole purpose of booting Trump off of it.

The “Star Wars” actor tweeted his support for a GoFundMe cause that seeks to raise $1 billion to become a majority shareholder for Twitter. Once that’s accomplished, it seeks to follow the community guidelines as a reason for kicking Trump off the platform.

Hamill, who will reprise his role as Luke Skywalker later this year, tweeted to let fans know that he’s donated to the campaign. Additionally, after a fan complained about the concept, he wrote a brief response explaining that the gesture is more symbolic than practical.

George Clooney: Trump ‘incapable’ of being president  

Excerpts:

George Clooney had a blunt assessment of President Trump’s first months as commander in chief.

“It becomes increasingly clear how in over his head and incapable this man is of being president of the United States,” the liberal actor told the Associated Press. “The good news is that our other institutions — meaning press, finally, and judges and senators — have proven that the country works. There is a check and balance.”

Doesn’t this guy ever get tired of “#Resisting” -seems every other week, he’s in a protest or something.

Mark Ruffalo Joins March from Charlottesville to D.C. to Demand Trump Be ‘Removed from Office’

Excerpts:

August 31, 2017

Actor and activist Mark Ruffalo joined protesters on Thursday marching from Charlottesville, Virginia, to Washington, DC., in an organized ten-day “March to Confront White Supremacy.”

“Heading to Culpeper. Marching 18 miles today alongside these beautiful people,” Ruffalo wrote on Twitter. “We the people have the power.”

“Marching into Trump Country to confront white supremacy,” the actor later wrote in an Instagram post.

The Cville 2 DC March is in response to the violence that broke out in Charlottesville, Virginia, during a “Unite the Right” white nationalist protest this month. The protests culminated in the death of 32-year-old Heather Heyer. President Trump repeatedlycondemned the white supremacist protesters and the “egregious display of hatred” and violence that broke out in Charlottesville.


This post will be updated through summer 2017 as new stories appear.

Which I’m pretty sure they will, because most celebrities are left wing and cannot shut up about politics and insulting their customer base, which includes Republicans, conservatives, and Trump voters.

(Edit, June 22, 2017 – yes, actor Johnny Depp just uttered some obnoxious anti-Trump commentary while attending some awards show or movie opening. And we are still only in the month of June.)
