Nobody spreads vitriol and threatens violence against President Trump quite like Hollywood has done over the last several years.
Celebrities who have “joked” about violently hurting or killing Trump include Madonna, Johnny Depp, comedian Kathy Griffin, Robert De Niro, Rosie O’Donnell, and superstar rapper Snoop Dogg.
But as of last week, this one famous comedian has officially fantasized about killing President Trump twice now.
Can you imagine the liberal backlash if anybody threatened to harm former President Barack Obama, his family or administration while he was in office?
They would’ve been appalled by it, but that’s exactly what Hollywood has perpetuated for the last several years of Donald Trump’s presidency.
Comedian Kathy Griffin infamously posed with a decapitated head of Trump, which caused her a headache at first when the Secret Service visited her residence. Griffin complained that her career suffered as a result, but she was selling out theaters across the country in her standup tour following the viral photograph.
In July 2017, Rosie O’Donnell tweeted out a link to a game called “Push Trump Off a Cliff Again,” where you digitally push Trump off a cliff to his death.
In January 2017, following Trump’s inauguration, Madonna told a crowd of thousands at the Women’s March that she had “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House” with him and his family residing there.
At the United Kingdom’s Glastonbury music and arts festival in 2017, Johnny Depp made a “Joke” saying, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” He was, of course, talking about himself and that last time was when John Wilkes Booth infamously shot President Abraham Lincoln in the Ford Theater in Washington D.C. over 150 years ago.
The list goes on and on.
But famous comedian George Lopez has officially fantasized about killing President Trump twice over the years.
Griffin wasn’t the only one who posted a picture of a decapitated President Trump. Lopez tweeted this cartoon graphic in early 2016 before he won the Republican nomination:

Last week, Lopez fantasized again.
In the wake of President Trump ordering the drone strike against Gen. Qasem Soleimani, an Iranian eulogist declared an $80 million bounty on Trump’s head. It’s important to note that this was not the official stance of the Iranian government.
But George Lopez claimed “We’ll do it for half” on an Instagram post.
The irony is that although Lopez can claim these are jokes – getting away with it specifically using the excuse that he’s a comedian and that it’s fair game because of his profession – Lopez has had several violent altercations with Trump supporters.
In November 2018, police charged Lopez with misdemeanor battery over an alleged altercation involving “MAGA jokes” at a Hooters restaurant, all of which was caught on tape.
He also famously called on President Trump to “deport police” if “you wanna make the streets safer.”
Also, Lopez pretended to defecate on President Trump’s Hollywood Star on the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Boulevard.
Outside of De Niro, Lopez is seemingly the most aggressive towards President Trump and who knows what either one is capable of actually doing. More importantly, however, is inspiring their fans to attempt to enact violent harm.
