Johnny Depp on Trump: ‘When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? Maybe it is time’

All you need is hate. Actor Johnny Depp called for the assassination of President Donald Trump at a Q & A at the Glastonbury Festival in England on Thursday, reported the Guardian. The audience cheered the mention of Trump’s assassination, according to a concurrent report by the Telegraph.

In a year that he would like to forget, which included his acrimonious divorce to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp appeared at a Q&A at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury.

Johnny Depp joked about assassinating Donald Trump during an appearance at Glastonbury.

The actor received a rock star welcome during the event at Cineramageddon – a drive-in cinema on the Somerset site.

He introduced his 2004 film The Libertine along with director Julian Temple but began talking about the US president following questions from the 1,500-strong audience.

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

“It is just a question – I’m not insinuating anything. 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.

“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he asked in reference to the death of Abraham Lincoln by John Wilkes Booth in 1865.

“I want to qualify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time,” he added.

From the Telegraph:

He added: “I’m not insinuating anything – by the way this will be in the press and it will be horrible – but when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?

Responding to loud cheers, Depp said: “Don’t worry, I’m not an actor, I lie for a living.”

Such is the state of liberalism in 2017: In six months liberals have gone from ‘Punch a Nazi’ and ‘Blow up the White House’ to ‘Behead President Trump’ and ‘Shoot a Congressman’. For liberals, “all you need is love” has been replaced with “all you need is hate.” Sad. Very sad.

Will the Secret Service investigate Depp?
