What is it about Hollywood celebrities that make them think we care what they have to say about politics? We pay to see them act. Nothing more. Nothing less.
Actor Sean Penn spewed trash about President Trump on Friday, stating that he is an “enemy of mankind” and “enemy of the state.”
I wonder what he has to say about Hillary Clinton then?
Penn, known for his roles as Jeff Spicoli in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” and as the titular character in “Milk,” expressed outrage at Trump’s reported admonishment of third world countries.
He criticized Trump for singling out Haiti, which was rocked by a massive earthquake in 2010.
Penn said he can still smell the “blood and death” that greeted him when he touched down in the island nation during relief efforts and said Trump’s words about the nation were “disgraceful.”
He said many Haitians who sought refuge in the United States did indeed come with lower educational attainment and wealth, but that those same people worked hard to excel in the fields they chose.
According to Penn, Trump is encouraging “an enslavement of America by a core minority of the electorate.” He also added that the New Yorker is turning into an “enemy of Americans.”
He said Americans should ignore Trump’s rhetoric and instead try to unify with nations he has spoken about, like El Salvador, Haiti, Mexico and those in the Middle East.
The actor, who also made headlines for making several visits with late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez, added that Trump is also “an enemy of mankind [and] indeed an enemy of the state.”
