The assassination of a president, no matter what your thoughts on that president are, is serious business and not something to play around with.
That is why actor Sean Penn’s first novel, which calls for the assassination of a president who is like President Donald Trump, is concerning.
Penn, a two time Oscar winner, wrote the 176 page novel titled “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” which is described as being about a “modern American man, entrepreneur, and part-time assassin.”
The main character, Bob Honey, worked with contractors in Iraq and was hired by the government to kill the elderly who were using too many resources, The Daily Mail reported.
The main character is a 55-year-old Southern Californian who is angry with what is happening in America and at the president, named Mr. Landlord.
The man eventually checks himself into a mental institution and writes a letter to the president.
“Many wonderful American people in pain and rage elected you. Many Russians did too. Your position is an asterisk accepted as literally as your alternative facts.
“Though the office will remain real, you never were nor will be. A million women so dwarfed your penis-edency on the streets of Washington and around the world on the day of your piddly inauguration – unprecedented (spelling ok?),” he wrote.
“Your gasconade and cache of catchphrases, so limiting and reflexive, escalate the emasculation of you by a world whose patience is in nuclear peril. These sciences and sensibilities are our guns your narcissism neglects.
“Weapons your NRA masters are incapable of proffering for profit, and outside your dutiful military’s might, mandate or mission,” he added.
“So to your attempt to posthumously assassinate our Founding Fathers, and bait and switch your core, I say I will eat where the fish are glowing.
“’You are not simply a president of impeachment, you are a man in need of an intervention. We are not simply a people in need of an intervention, we are a nation in need of an assassin. I am God’s squared-away man.
“I am Bob Honey. That’s who I am. Sir, I challenge you to a duel. Tweet me, b****. I dare you,” the character wrote.
Penn is as unhinged as his Hollywood friends and is unable to deal with the fact that a man he did not want to be president won the presidency.
What happens if someone reads Penn’s book and decides to do what the character says?
It is a scary idea and the president needs our prayers now more than ever.
