John Cusack calls on Trump to be removed from office

Hollywood actor John Cusack is calling for another impeachment of President Trump amid the worldwide coronavirus outbreak, saying that the president must be forcibly removed from the White House in order “to save lives.”

The anti-Trump actor tweeted Tuesday that he wants to see labor strikes as well as the impeachment of President Trump. “We need to remove Trump from power to save lives,” Cusack wrote. “Impeach him again.” reports: John Cusack joins filmmaker Rob Reiner, who has also called for President Trump’s removal from office as the coronavirus outbreak continues to grip the world.

Reiner tweeted earlier this month: “We will get through this. But unfortunately not with the help of this President. First he must be removed from the public square to let competent experts take over, then he must be removed from office to allow US to heal.”

Cusack, who endorsed Bernie Sanders as the Democratic presidential nominee, recently told President Trump to “rot in hell” for  scolding an NBC News reporter during a White House press conference on the coronavirus pandemic. The High Fidelity star was reacting to a testy exchange between President Trump and NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander.

The 2012 star also demanded Trump’s ouster last May in a series of tweets that saw the actor pushing for the president’s impeachment.

“Trump needs to be removed from office,” said Cusack.


  1. Read: The Mad Clown In Chief And His Mad Hatter’s Tea Party (Revised And Updated)

    I’ve described ‘The Donald’ as being many kinds of bad actor, i.e. narcissist, demagogue, con man, sexist, racist, and a traitor. And I’ve accused him of wanting to usher in an autocracy, oligarchy, plutocracy, and kleptocracy. But I now realize, that even though all of my previous descriptions and accusations may still be true, at the heart of who Donald Trump is, is a mad clown, and out of that mad clown has come a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

    And just what has enabled this mad clown to climb so high? The simplest and most obvious reasons were a pocketful of money, a willingness to tell outrageous lies, a media that feeds on sensationalism, a public that loves to be entertained, enjoys the smell of wealth and thrives on jackass behavior, and an angry portion of the population that feels threatened by progressive changes that they think will leave them behind. And then, of course, there is the involvement of an adversarial foreign government.

    So what we finally ended up with is a virtual Mad Clown In Chief and Mad Hatter sitting in the Oval Office of the most powerful country in the world. And this mad clown, who has his finger on the nuclear button, proceeded to say that the U.S. should expand its military arsenal and start winning wars again, as he bounced around from issue to issue and lie to lie, taking one side and then another, never landing in one place long enough for anyone to know what he is really about or what he believes, if anything at all.

    After his inauguration, Donald Trump claimed that photos comparing Barack Obama’s inauguration to Trump’s were faked by the ‘lying media’ and that the turnout for Trump’s swearing-in was the biggest ever. And then he claimed that half of the people participating in the Women’s March were Trump supporters, while 3-5 million votes that gave Hillary Clinton the popular vote were fraudulent. Then he moved on to create the chaos and cruelty of the Muslim travel ban and the undocumented immigrant roundups (and recently the separation of undocumented immigrant children from their parents). Then he started talking about expanding an already huge military – a military that is larger than any other on earth. Then he left Paris agreement on climate change and the Iran nuclear agreement.

    On March 4th. 2017, Trump tweeted this: “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” And since then, time after time, with every new issue, and especially with the advent of the Mueller investigation, the mad, daily tweets just keep coming – absurd tweets, embarrassing tweets, petty tweets, tweets unworthy of a President of the United States.

    So, as this Mad Clown In Chief oversaw his Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, and fumbled, bumbled and lied his way through trying to look serious and be presidential, it started to become increasingly clear that Trump is not only incompetent but he is dangerous. And with his talk of winning wars again, it became frighteningly possible that this mad clown and his mad tea party could end up leading all of us off a cliff into chaos and maybe even a world war.

    But then, in June of 2018, after meeting with Kim Jung Un, Trump announced that North Korea was no longer a nuclear threat and the U.S. would stop joint military exercises with South Korea and maybe even remove American troops from the Korean Peninsula.

    And in July of 2018, with the NATO summit fiasco, his embarrassing visit to the UK, and the now infamous Helsinki press briefing, the Mad Clown In Chief continued his unpredictable and never-ending Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, where he insulted the guests who used to be our friends and praised those who used to be our adversaries, throwing our allies (like Canada and Germany) into confusion and giving comfort to our enemies.

    Then, in Sept. of 2019, the Ukraine fiasco was uncovered. And, on Dec. 18th, the democrat controlled house voted to impeach the Mad Clown In Chief. But the Republican-controlled Senate refused to allow the subpoena of relevant documents and the testimony of relevant witnesses. So, as of Feb. of 2020, after being acquitted by the republican controlled senate, we now had a completely unbound Trump, doing his best to water down the rule of law and turn our country into autocracy, or, even worse, a nationalist theocracy.

    And now, April 2020, we have The Mad Clown In Chief And His Mad Hatter’s Tea Party response to the COVID-19 pandemic. And, as the dead pile up, and we teeter on the edge of the cliff, only a heartbeat away from falling into chaos, we can see that that chaos could come about from any of the dangerous swings of the unpredictable, mad Trump pendulum. And if he is not stopped, if we do not vote him out in November, we Americans, including his deluded followers, are going to end up sorely regretting that we allowed our constitutional republic to sink so low and stray so far from the path the founders mapped out for us, because we were foolish enough to put it into the incompetent, corrupt and insane hands of Donald J. Trump.
