Entertainment People Keep Calling For Violence to President Trump
I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of entertainment folks calling on violence and worse against United States President Donald Trump.
Whether it was “Shakespeare in the Park,” or, so-called comedian Kathy Griffin and her mock-beheading of The President.
The latest example is “Saturday Night Live.” A former show writer (John Mulaney) served as this past Saturday’s Program host, on Leap Day, which only occurs every four years.
They took the opportunity to use this theme, that Leap Year began under the reign of Julius Caesar.
Their sick concept was that the brutal assassination of a nation’s leader should be brought back, (meaning against Trump).
Mulaney offered live that “It is a Leap Year, as I said, Leap Year began in 45 B.C. under Julius Caesar."
Mulaney did this in his opening monologue. "This is true, he started the Leap Year in order to correct the calendar and we still do it to this day.“
"Another thing that happened under Julius Caesar, he was such a powerful maniac that all the senators grabbed knives and they stabbed him to death. That'd be an interesting thing if we brought that back now," said Mulaney.
Mulaney's joke was similar to the “Shakespeare in the Park” production that dressed a President Donald Trump-looking character as Caesar and brutally killed him.
"I asked my lawyer if I could make that joke and he called another lawyer and that lawyer said, 'yes,'" Mulaney said.
Something needs to be done about this. I strongly believe in free speech. However, this crosses all boundaries of decency and civility.
It can also encourage bad actors to consider bad intentions regarding President Trump.
There has hardly been a single complaint about this. The media is spiking it, thereby shutting down any serious discussion about it.
I sure do hope that The United States Secret Service will pay a visit to Mulaney and “Saturday Night Live.”
Advocating (even in bad jest) for the killing of The President of The United States should be considering unacceptable, no matter what your political persuasion.
This needs to stop, now.
