Director Rob Reiner Claims that Trump Must Be Removed from Office to Allow “Competent” Experts to Take Over
Outspoken anti-Trump activist, Hollywood director Rob Reiner wrote on Monday that the president should be removed from office to allow more “competent” experts to take charge. He also went on to claim that Americans should unseat Trump to allow the country to “heal” from the coronavirus outbreak.
In a Twitter post, the award-winning director wrote: “We will get through this. But unfortunately, not with the help of this president. First, he must be removed from the public square to let competent experts take over; then he must be removed from office to allow US to heal.”
We will get through this. But unfortunately not with the help of this President. First he must be removed from the public square to let competent experts take over, then he must be removed from office to allow US to heal.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) March 16, 2020
It is no surprise that other Hollywood hotshots chimed in. Songwriter, Richard Marx described the president as “repulsive,” and claimed that Trump had considered the ongoing national crisis as a hoax.
No one is more repulsed by Trump than I (except for those subjected to seeing him naked) but this narrative that he called the actual virus a hoax is patently false. He said Dems’ claim he didn’t respond to it appropriately was a hoax. Turns out they were still right.— Richard Marx (@richardmarx) March 13, 2020
Actor Adam Goldberg used profanities to respond to Trump’s briefing while Jude Apatow says that the president is a “liar.” Apatow went on to claim that Trump had also felt that he was way “smarter” than other world leaders.
A motherfucking campaign ad.— Kiss My @s (@TheAdamGoldberg) March 13, 2020
Trump has to always frame it as us smarter than other countries when we have been awful and he is a liar. He never speaks about how we are in this together - the entire world.— Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) March 13, 2020
Another star with a strong anti-Trump syndrome, Chelsea Handler also tweeted that the president was unable to provide answers, and simply uses Pence as a scapegoat to boost his morale.
Trump is holding a press conf about corona yet is unable to answer any real questions on the matter, and then turns it over to pence, who then praises trump for what a great job he’s been doing. How stupid do we have to be before we get rid of this moron. Not a question.— Chelsea Handler (@chelseahandler) March 13, 2020
On Monday, Reiner also wrote on Twitter that the only solution to “clean out the stench of his criminality” is to beat Trump on the upcoming 2020 general elections.
Pardon Flynn? The only way to cleanse our country from the filth and stench of his Criminality is to beat him by a landslide in Nov. then prosecute him so he can join the rest of his mob family behind bars.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) March 15, 2020
In fact, despite the growing concern over the coronavirus pandemic, Reiner was still privileged enough to carry on political discussions believing that Sen. Bernie Sanders is only an “advocate” while “Sleepy Joe” should be the commander-in-chief.
Reiner had since been making headlines from his anti-Trump Twitter posts. In fact, in a previous tweet, the director described Trump as a threat to democracy and should be considered as the “most criminally corrupt president in our nation’s history.”
The survival of Democracy depends on the removal of the most Criminally Corrupt President in our Nation’s history. It’s time to put our differences aside and celebrate what unites US by coalescing behind Joe Biden. This Nov. let’s blow the Sick Liar away.— Rob Reiner (@robreiner) March 11, 2020
Reiner had first run headlines this year when he made an MSNBC appearance in which he urged the American public to “punch” Trump in the nose. During the said media appearance, he also used the opportunity to publicly endorse billionaire and former New York City “Mini Mike” Bloomberg, who had since dropped out of the race after facing major backlash on his sexist and racist comments.
