When will these privileged, elitist Hollywood liberals learn?
You. Don’t. Joke. About. Assassinating. The. President. Ever.
Does anyone remember a flurry of assassination jokes from conservative entertainers during the Obama years? No? Because we are smart enough to understand that is not something anyone should ever do. Yes, mock our leaders. Make jokes about them. Call them mean names. Argue that their ideas are terrible and that they’re terrible.
But NEVER “joke” about assassination.
Now, Johnny Depp is about to learn the hard lesson that Kathy Griffin just learned.
Just last week a group of GOP lawmakers was targeted for assassination by a far-left goon. Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) is still recovering from the attack in the hospital. And Johnny Depp is already joking about such things? It’s truly deplorable.
Here’s what Depp said:
“Can you bring Trump here?
No, no, no, you’ve misunderstood completely. I think he needs help. There are a lot of dark places he could go.
It’s just a question, i’m not insinuating anything. By the way this is going to be in the press, it’s going to be horrible. But I like that you’re all a part of it, when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?
“Don’t worry, I’m not an actor, I lie for a living.”
Johnny Depp: "When was the last time an actor assassinated a President?"
Crowd reaction? Cheers & laughter

Thankfully, everyone in the media seems to be aware that his “joke” was not funny.

Johnny Depp once moved to France to make a political statement about America, then came crawling back when he saw how much money they wanted
