Johnny Depp Jokingly Discusses Assassinating Trump

At an appearance in England, actor Johnny Depp seemingly joked about assassinating President Trump.

Depp was in Glastonbury at a drive-in movie theater, introducing his 2004 film The Libertine, when he began talking about POTUS, according to The Guardian.

“I think he needs help and there are a lot of wonderful dark, dark places he could go,” Depp said.

Depp even added that his comments would “be in the press,”  then began discussing historic assassinations of presidents.

“When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” he questioned, referencing John Wilkes Booth assassinating President Abraham Lincoln in 1865.

“I want to clarify, I am not an actor. I lie for a living,” Depp said. “However, it has been a while and maybe it is time.”

Depp’s untimely comments come a week after several politically-motivated events including the shooting of Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise.

In recent weeks, a production of “Julius Caesar” in New York City’s “Shakespeare in the Park” sparked double-sided controversy when the play showed the Roman dictator, seemingly depicted as Trump, being brutally stabbed to death on stage.

Sponsors later pulled out of the event due to the “graphic” nature of the show.
