(Tea Party PAC) – Hollywood has no shortage of insanity leaking out of it these days, especially when it comes to radical leftists who really hate President Trump. Thus, when one of these “crusaders” for the progressive agenda opens their mouth and spits something wacky out, it’s not really a big surprise.
Yet, sometimes, just sometimes, there’s something so crazy that’s spoken that your mouth hangs open and you have to shake your head at the condition some of these folks are in, all because they disagree with the president. Trump Derangement Syndrome is really, y’all.
Actor Robert Redford recently accused Trump of launching a “dictator-like attack” on the values of the United States, stating his presidency is a “monarchy in disguise” that must come to an end quickly.
Somebody just went cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.
Here’s more from Breitbart:
In an op-ed published Tuesday for NBC News’ THINK opinion section, the 83-year-old actor called on leaders on both sides of the political divide to remove Trump from office.
“We’re up against a crisis I never thought I’d see in my lifetime: a dictator-like attack by President Donald Trump on everything this country stands for,” wrote Redford.
“It’s time for Trump to go — along with those in Congress who have chosen party loyalty over their oath to ‘solemnly affirm’ their support for the Constitution of the United States. And it’s up to us to make that happen, through the power of our votes.”
The actor added that he was willing to give Trump a chance to prove himself when he was elected president in 2016, but has since concluded he is a threat to the United States.
“When Trump was elected, though he was not my choice, I honestly thought it only fair to give the guy a chance,” he explained. “And like many others, I did. But almost instantly he began to disappoint and then alarm me. I don’t think I’m alone.”
“What is happening, right now, is so deeply disturbing that instead of the United States of America, we are now defined as the Divided States of America,” he continued. “Leaders on both sides lack the fundamental courage to cross political aisles on behalf of what is good for the American people.”
Redford also appeared to compare Trump’s presidency to World War II, the Watergate crisis, and the terrorist attacks on September 11th 2001.
It is not the first time that Redford has expressed his fears about the catastrophic consequences of Trump’s presidency. In an op-ed for TIME magazine in April, he warned that impeaching the president would be pointless unless he changes course on the matter of climate change as there “will be no planet to live on.”
Robert Redford remains one of Hollywood’s most decorated actors and filmmakers, and in 2016 was even awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom for services to entertainment. However, last year he moaned that he now feels “out of place” in America due to the “bigotry” and “mean-spiritedness” of the country’s politics.
Okay, so Trump has done absolutely nothing that would resemble the kind of shenanigans you’d see come out of a dictatorship or a monarchy. Whatever it is that Redford is drinking, he better have brought enough for everyone because it must be some really good stuff.
The president has done a great job at reducing the size and scope of the federal government and its restrictions and regulations on businesses. He’s decreased the unemployment rate drastically, and his policies are starting to allow the free market to have room to do its job and balance things out.
That takes more freedom to accomplish, not less. Again, not sure what Redford is puffing on, but perhaps its time to put it down and go be sober for a bit.
