Speaking of actors who instead of going on about their business, which is basically lying to people while living like kings of old, choose to embarrass themselves over politics, this time it was Johnny Depp’s turn to play the leftist “assassination card” as he joked during a Q&A session at the new Cinemageddon stage at Glastonbury about killing Donald Trump.
So, what else is new one may ask? Depp got all political and sensitive while he was introducing one of his older movies, The Libertine (2004), a flick about a seventeenth century poet who, like many Hollywood actors drank himself to death.
Now, let’s see what the 54 year old Johnny Depp had to say about the POTUS:

“I think [Donald] Trump needs help. There are a lot of dark places he could go. 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?”
And if you were wondering about my preamble regarding actors and lying, Johnny Depp also said to his relatively stunned audience cheering his rant regarding a possible Presidential assassination that:
“Don’t worry, I’m not an actor, I lie for a living.”
Ahh, isn’t it sweet to see the moral high ground from Depp, the man that helped release the Aleister Crowley supporters from federal prison after 3 young boys were brutally sacrificed in a witchcraft ritual? Here’s a little history lesson for you, Johnny:
John Wilkes Booth was NOT hailed as a hero, as he had hoped. In fact, he is one of the most hated men in American history. Even the South grew to hate him for what he did to President Lincoln. Booth met a terrible end, and his last words were — of his hands — “Useless. Useless.”
Are you sure you want to go down that road, Johnny? Hollywood is the paramount icon and proof that money doesn’t buy class.
