Celebrity: ‘When Was The Last Time An Actor Assassinated A President?’

6

Johnny Depp was Glastonbury Festival’s inaugural guest at its new Cineramageddon drive-in movie theater in Britain Thursday night, and he certainly gave the place a memorable launch. While introducing a screening of his 2004 movie “The Libertine,” he made inflammatory statements about President Donald Trump.

“I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go,” Depp said, according to the Guardian.

He then asked the crowd, “When was the last time an actor assassinated the president?”

The answer is John Wilkes Booth, who shot Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in 1865.

“It is just a question – I’m not insinuating anything,” he assured the crowd. “By the way, this is going to be in the press. It will be horrible. I like that you are all a part of it.”

He also claimed that he wasn’t referring to himself, since he’s not really an actor. “I lie for a living,” he clarified. “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”

  1. how can Matzav publish an article that the fake news rag, the WaPo, reports on, especially when the article would give the crazies out there ideas of assasinating President Trump? perhaps today is a slow news day.

    • Sorry to burst your bubble. For a change, the Wash. Post reported the truth. These crazies out there, the sore-losers who are still trying to impeach Trump for “stealing ‘their’ election’ are saying this all along. This would-be murderer would never had the courage to say this about Obama because he would be fired immediately and perhaps even arrested and behind bars for a couple of years. The Republicans must learn to deal with these murderers and would be murderers and inciters the way the Democrats did.
