Actor and comedian Allen Covert fired back at those hoping Hurricane Dorian destroys President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
As Dorian, now a powerful category 4 hurricane, barrels toward Florida, critics of the president voiced their wish that Trump's Palm Beach resort suffers a direct hit.
"I'm rooting for a direct hit on Mar-a-Lago!" former Canadian Prime Minster Kim Campbell said.
Although Campbell has since deleted her original tweet, she later defended her words, connecting her animus for Trump and desire that Mar-a-Lago is destroyed to the president's environmental policy, which does not prioritize the climate change agenda.
And no, I don’t wish anyone, anywhere, the horror of being hit by a Category 4 Hurricane. But not everyone can have… https://t.co/0UqvEFdQYu— Kim Campbell (@Kim Campbell)1567120871.0
What did Covert say?
The actor, who frequently stars alongside his friend Adam Sandler, said the hatred of those wishing east Florida suffers a direct hit has devolved them to "become worse than what you hate."
"My family lives about 10 miles from Mar-a-Lago so all of you people cheering the fact that Dorian might wipe it out can kindly go f**k yourselves. You have sunk so low in your hatred that you have become worse than what you hate," Covert said.

With potential landfall still two days away, it's not yet clear if Dorian will strike Florida.
As of Saturday afternoon, the storm was just shy of a category 5 — indicating it continues to strengthen — but the forecast track is less clear. Some forecasters believe the storm could recurve north making landfall somewhere in the Carolinas while others think the storm could miss land completely.
