Legendary Broadway star crosses line, calls for Trump’s assassination: ‘Will that get me in trouble?’

Broadway legend Carole Cook, who may have actually known John Wilkes Booth, asked where is the man who assassinated President Abraham Lincoln while talking about President Donald Trump.

In a sense, the 94-year-old Hollywood grande dame openly backed President Trump’s assassination… and it was met with a collective ho-hum by the Fake News media.

A TMZ cameraman asked Cook and her husband about an incident last week during a performance of “Frozen,” when a audience member held up a “Trump 2020” banner.

The couple were leaving a West Hollywood restaurant and her husband knew what was coming, saying, “Oh, this is good.”

“Where’s John Wilkes Booth when you need him?” Cook then said, to the amusement of her husband.

The actress proceeded to ensure the cameraman knew that Booth had assassinated Lincoln.

“Where is he when you need him?” she reemphasized, to be sure she made her point.

“So we need to kill President Trump?” someone off camera is then heard asking her.

“Why not?” Cook answered.

“Now, will that get me in trouble? Will I be on an enemy’s list? My god I hope so… just keep me out of jail,” the old bat added.

The incident during the performance of “Frozen” can be seen below:

What does it say about our country and politics when a man at the show tonight felt the need to protest Disney’s Frozen on Broadway with a pro Trump flag?? How frightening is it that our show’s messages of love, acceptance, and diversity have become the opposition to supporting Trump? The curtain call is a thank you between actors and audience, a final connection to end a shared experience. I will not apologize for how I responded to the disrespectful man trying to interrupt this moment with a pathetic political platform. Not at our show! Not in front of my beautiful, diverse, talented cast at @frozenbroadway. I appreciate everyone’s support. #resist #lovewins #lovetrumpshate
