Michael Shannon, whose acting credits include roles in Boardwalk Empire and the movie Revolutionary Road, for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in 2008, is currently on a press tour promoting his new movie, Nocturnal Animals.
That’s not all the actor is doing, however. He’s also quite busy disparaging President-elect Donald Trump and the millions of people who voted for him.
Without repeating them, here are the vile things Shannon said in an interview published earlier this week:

And now, Shannon is at it again in this Wednesday interview with Metro News. Here are a few direct quites related to Trump, his supporters, and the election.
“Basically this man is probably going to destroy the earth and civilization as we know it. It’s kind of terrifying.”
“These protests are so moving, but ultimately what are they going to accomplish? I’m so glad these kids on the campuses everywhere are going ape s—, but at the end of the day the guy’s still going to be president. Maybe you need a civil war or something.”
“I don’t want to live in a country where people voted for Trump. I want to live in some other f—ing country. But I don’t want to run away. So we’re just going to have to bust this thing up.”
“There’s a lot of old people who need to realize they’ve had a nice life, and it’s time for them to move on. Because they’re the ones who go out and vote for these assholes. If you look at the young people, between 18 and 25, if it was up to them Hillary would have been president. No offense to the seniors out there. My mom’s a senior citizen. But if you’re voting for Trump, it’s time for the urn.“
This actor turned “political thinker” still doesn’t get it, and he never will.
A “civil war?” “Bust this thing up?” “Time for the urn?” If Shannon were saying the exact same things against Obama and his supporters in 2008, it’s pretty safe to say he’d be UNDER the jail right now. Thankfully, all of his rhetoric, and that of all the other Hollywood types who think the American people really care what they think, does is drive more and more people into the sane, conservative camp.
