Rubio has a message for Hollywood
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican who has not been the most enthusiastic supporter of President Donald Trump, has a message for all those Hollywood types protesting the new administration.
“We’ve got to just take care of the country. We’ll see how it all plays out,” Rubio told TMZ in response to a question about some celebrities — most recently, Charlie Sheen — saying Trump will be impeached.
Trump has been in the White House for about a month and, in the weeks since he took the oath of office, many of Tinseltown’s biggest names have come out against the Republican president. At the Golden Globes last month, Meryl Streep ripped Trump for being a “bully,” and last week, during a speech at a Human Rights Campaign gala, she slammed the president’s “catastrophic instinct to retaliate,” referring to his Twitter tirade against her speech weeks before.
On Inauguration Day, Debra Messing “joined millions of Americans” committing themselves to Wall of Us, an advocacy group with the goal “to make it simply irresistible for Americans to become active participants in rebuilding our democracy.”
In a video tweet that has since been deleted, Messing took the oath of office as a form of protest against Trump’s hardline stances on issues like immigration.
And, of course, in December, several actors came together to create a video urging members of the Electoral College to vote against Trump to block him from ever becoming the president.
While Hollywood has been busy opposing Trump at every turn, Rubio is urging them to knock it off.
