Johnny Depp: ‘Maybe it is time’ for an ‘actor’ to assassinate a president

Actor Johnny Depp appeared to be calling for President Donald Trump’s assassination in remarks he made Thursday, asking, “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”

The “Chocolat” star was introducing a screening of 2004’s “The Libertine” at an arts festival in Glastonbury, England, when he decided to make the shocking comments. He seemed to be making a bizarre reference to when actor John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln in 1865.

Met with a mix of cheers and jeers from the crowd, Depp asked about “the last time an actor assassinated a president” and went on to say, “Now, I want to clarify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”

Glenn Beck wondered why it’s OK for liberals to demand violence on Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

Depp, who is known for starring in Tim Burton’s “Edward Scissorhands” and the blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, will simply get a pass on his call for violence against Trump, Glenn asserted.

“This guy is now calling for the president’s assassination to cheers,” Glenn said. “And it will not affect his career at all.”
