Lesbian Actress Calls on Biden to Assassinate Trump: 'Take Him Out, Joe! This Is a WAR'

July 4th, 2024 6:10 AM

James Hibberd at The Hollywood Reporter spread the word that lesbian actress and comedian Lea DeLaria, best known for the prison drama Orange Is The New Black, sounded like a criminal in an "intense" Instagram video post on Tuesday by suggesting Joe Biden should assassinate Donald Trump after the Supreme Court found a broad immunity for presidential actions.

Will she get a visit from the Secret Service? Is the next James Hodgkinson read to take up arms? The post has more than 10,000 likes, and Instagram hasn't taken it down.

“Done. I’m done. I’m fucking seriously done. The Supreme Court has pissed me off so much right now. Like so much. Joe, you’re a reasonable man. You don’t want to do this. But here’s the reality: This is a fucking war. This is a war now, and we are fighting for our fucking country. And these assholes are gonna take it away. They’re gonna take it away. Fuck you Clarence ‘Uncle’ Thomas! Fuck you!

Joe, you now have the right to take that bitch Trump out. Take him out, Joe. If he was Hitler, and this was 1940, you’d take him out. Well, he is Hitler. And this is 1940. Take him the fuck out! Blow him up, or they’ll blow us up. Facts.”

She sounds like the title of her first comedy record, Bulldyke in a Chinashop.

She added in the comments: “It’s all out war now. They will destroy us. They only want power… like all tyrants. FUCK THEM!!! And if any of you assholes wanna death threat me like you have been doing for my entire life, bring it on bitch. I’m Sicilian, I know how to play that game.” Um, who's "death threatening" who?

Hibberd noted this violent rhetoric isn't a first time for the Sicilian: After the 2016 election, DeLaria posted that she wanted to “pick up a baseball bat and take out every fucking Republican and Independent I see.”

Comments weren't all supportive. “Did you just publicly call for the president of the United States to murder his political opponent?” one commenter wrote. “If you want 3rd world stuff to happen, move to a third world country. Dear Jesus.”
