Despite Joe Biden’s calls for “unity” and “healing,” his rageful friends in Hollywood are spending the day hurling insults and profanity at President Donald Trump and first lady Melania as they departed the White House en route to Mar-a-Lago where the first couple will resume their lives as private citizens.
“Good riddance!” Marvel superhero star Dave Bautista tweeted.
“Vete pa’ carajo!” (Go fuck yourself) John Leguizamo wrote.
“Trump! STFU! GTFO! LOSER! HUGEST LOSER EVER!” filmmaker Michael Moore raged.
Joe Biden is set to be sworn in as president on Wednesday amid an unprecedented military presence of Washington, D.C. and a near-complete absence of spectators. The sight of troops marching down the capital’s streets has drawn comparisons to the military-style dictatorships in Communist countries.
That doesn’t seem to bother Biden’s allies in Hollywood, many of whom actively campaigned and raised money for the president-elect. Instead, they focused their energies on trashing the outgoing commander in chief.
Two-time Oscar-winner Sean Penn — who recently compared Trump supporters to al-Qaeda — said that once Trump is out of office, “the United States can take a hot shower.”
At 12:01 p.m. eastern time tomorrow, the United States can take a hot shower. Scrub. Then, proceed.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista called Trump “so stupid” while adding “Good riddance!” His Marvel compatriot Mark Ruffalo claimed that “from the wreckage there will be renewal” as well as “compassion.”
He’s just so stupid. And delusional. And corrupt. And stupid. Watching and listening to him figure out how he can express a thought with a 25 word vocabulary and give himself a pat on the back at the same time is agonizing. Good riddance! #TraitorTrump #ByeByeTrump https://t.co/VDrqn9Ii5u

We are going to be okay. From the wreckage there will be renewal, from the wounds will grow compassion and character, from the division will come clarity, from the despair will come wisdom, from the loss will come community.
