Is there an echo in here, or is it just a broken record? For the third time in less than a month, Hollywood filmmaker Rob Reiner is claiming that President Donald Trump is killing Americans as the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage the world.

In his latest Twitter salvo, Rob Reiner lashed out at President Trump, writing that “this entitled ignorant sociopath is killing US.” The Misery filmmaker was riffing on a quote from Never Trump political strategist Rick Wilson, who once claimed, “Everything Trump touches, dies.”

This is the third time in less than a month that Reiner has accused the president of killing Americans. The Oscar-nominated filmmaker tweeted in late March that President Trump’s “mental illness is killing people.”

Just a few days earlier, Reiner tweeted that the president is causing people in New York to die.

The director of A Few Good Men, The Princess Bride, and This Is Spinal Tap  called on President Trump to resign yesterday, tweeting that the commander in chief must leave office “for the survival of our citizens, for the survival of our country.”

Reiner isn’t the only Hollywood celebrity who is taking advantage of the coronavirus outbreak to claim that President Trump is personally responsible for people’s deaths. Actresses Debra Messing, Cher, and Lori Petty have all used Twitter to blame the president for the deaths of Americans during the global pandemic.
