There doesn’t seem to be anything that gets under the skin of people more these days than a Donald Trump presidency. Every time you turn around some celebrity is shooting their mouth off about Trump and of course, they’re saying something ignorant. This time it is actor Mark Hamill, of Star Wars fame (and little else).
In an interview with The Daily Beast, Hamill talked about a bunch of different things, but specifically mentioned the election and Donald Trump. Hamill is a card carrying Democrat so it shouldn’t be too surprising to see what he said, but it’s still head scratching:
“I’m glad I have [the show] to take my mind off what’s going on. Because if you look at what’s being assembled for our government it’s like, yikes. It’s a who’s-who of really despicable people.”
That “who’s who” is President-elect Trump’s list of preferred White House staff and cabinet appointments, a list that has dredged up names associated with extreme anti-Semitism, racism, and homophobia.
Seriously? Who are the “despicable” people?
Steve Bannon? Naval officer, investment banker and Hollywood producer?
Reince Priebus? NAACP Legal Defense Fund intern, successful lawyer, and chairman of the Republican National Committee?
Jeff Sessions? US Attorney, United States Senator and Alabama attorney general who integrated Alabama schools and got the death penalty for KKK members?
Michael Flynn? Democrat, Naval War College graduate, OCS graduate, and Lieutenant General?
So where are these despicable people? Mark Hamill sounds like any other Hollywood liberal. His candidate lost so the only way he can make himself feel better is by denigrating the other side.
Share this with others and let them throw back those names at anybody who wants to agree with Mark Hamill. After seeing the fine people Trump is selecting, Hamill will go back to playing the only character he has for the last 40 years!
