Hollywood actor says woman killed in Charlottesville was ‘metaphorically’ shot by President Trump

Actor Michael Ian Black used the tragic murder of a woman during the Charlottesville white supremacist attack on Saturday to push an anti-President Donald Trump agenda that would make his Hollywood friends smile.

The “Wet Hot American Summer” star said that the murder of the 32-year-old paralegal, Heather Heyer, by a man in a car was the same as if “the President stood in the middle of 5th Ave and shot” her himself.

The allusion was to the president’s statement during the campaign that he “could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody. And I wouldn’t lose any voters.”

As clever as he thought he was, social media humbled him quickly.
