Johnny Depp, another of what passes for talent in Hollywood these days, carried off a successful publicity stunt in Glastonbury, England yesterday by joking about assassinating President Trump. This comes while Congressman Steve Scalise is still in the hospital after another Left-Wing Anarchist attempted to mass-murder the GOP leadership only a few days ago.
While peddling a 13 year-old film of his in Glastonbury, Depp guffawed "When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to qualify that I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However it has been awhile and maybe it is time."
Now it is true that Depp has no acting talent and is a pathological liar; but the bobble-headed Liberal audience didn't applaud his confession but burst into peals of laughter at the thought of Depp as the new Wilkes Booth. The fact that Booth defended an undemocratic government of slaveholders whose monuments and flags are being removed by Liberals like Depp never occurred to them. Instead, they believe that President Trump deserves to die; because he is a wealthy white male with 'offensive' attitudes about women. Unlike Depp, of course: a white male with a quarter-billion dollar net worth who is also a known wife-beater.
In spite of the relative Corporate Media blackout of the assassination attempt, the Left is becoming less and less able to conceal their disappointment that the attempt failed. At least three prominent commentators have practically said so. A theatre troupe refused to cancel an assassination-themed play and the DNC chief of New Jersey has launched a 'Hunt Republicans' campaign which is clearly trolling for violent action. Leftist hatred for Trump has reached such a level of blind irrationality that it is bordering upon actual mental illness. Normal, well-adjusted human beings simply don't fantasize obsessively about murdering heads of state for ill-defined reasons.
The issue with people like this is reflected in Depp's statement: "I lie for a living." The Left holds power by lying and hypocrisy and they bitterly resent Trump's popularity because it is based on Trump's genuineness. The President simply is what he is; a flawed human being like all of us, but he doesn't pretend to be what he is not. The Left rarely ever succeeds by doing anything honestly; therefore they envy those who do.
Johnny Depp is a case in point. During Hollywood's 'Golden Age', he probably never would have been more than a supporting actor or stunt double in B-Studio productions. Or a part-time bouncer on Skid Row bars. Deep inside, he knows that he is nothing but a fake and fears that the public will realize it. That's why people like Trump who aren't fakes are such a psychological threat to Leftist egos. They are aware of the comparison and fear that others will see it too.
