Hollywood actor Michael Rapaport has a long history of using his platform to go on unhinged rants against President Trump, and he did not miss the chance to use the coronavirus crisis to unleash another torrent of profanity on the Trump family.
After President Trump suggested that extended quarantines are unsustainable for the U.S., Rapaport filmed an expletive-filled rant calling for Trump to send out his children — including 14-year-old Barron Trump — as test subjects to see if the public would be safe from infection.
Rapaport may very well be suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome. In a video posted to Twitter, he responded to Trump’s suggesting by saying, “Why don’t you send your f—ing son, dick stain Donald Trump Jr., big-toothed Eric Trump, little f—ing Barron, f—ing Ivanka, junkyard Jared — let them go out there and test the f—ing waters. Let them see if s— is sweet.”
“Let them take the cars, the trains, the buses, the Amtraks, let them play in the park. And if everything’s good after five days of them playing out there in the streets, we’ll all go back to [work].”
Furthermore, Rapaport has shown everyone he has simply no idea what is happening in the nation.
Hollywood celebrities may have the resources to financially weather long-term quarantines, but middle-class Americans and small businesses do not have the resources to simply stop working for months.
President Trump is fully aware of this fact and is working hard to ensure that Americans can get back to work as soon as the benefits outweigh the risks.
Rapaport joins a long list of Hollywood progressives that have exposed themselves for just how out of touch they actually are with the reality that Americans face on the ground during this coronavirus crisis.
Working-class Americans first
Working-class Americans have been hit hard by the shutdown. The collapse of the stock market disrupted finances for millions, and record numbers of Americans have been forced to apply for unemployment benefits less than two weeks into the precautionary measures.
Long term financial plans have been disrupted and Americans living paycheck to paycheck are in a bad spot. A $1,200 check from the government will only do so much to soften the blow.
Getting Americans back to work is extremely important and President Trump knows it. Celebrities like Rapaport would do well to keep their ignorance hidden instead of broadcasting it to the world.
