'Westworld' star Jeffery Wright compares Trump to cult leader Charles Manson while wishing people happy Halloween on Twitter
A vocal critic of Trump, Wright, 53, shared a side-by-side collage that showed Trump and Manson smirking
'Westworld' star Jeffrey Wright took to Twitter to compare President Donald Trump to the murderous cult leader Charles Manson on Thursday.
The actor shared a video of Republican Devin Nunes speaking before the House voted to launch the formal impeachment proceedings against Trump. The clip sees Nunes say that Democrats on the Intelligence Committee are "like a cult".
Wright then flipped Nunes' comparison and likened Trump to Mansion by sharing a side-by-side collage that showed the pair smirking. "Happy Halloween, I guess, folks," Wright, wrote in the tweet, reported Daily Mail.
According to Fox News, Nunes, while defending Trump against his opponents' ongoing push for impeachment, said: "(But) they have no evidence and no argument to support impeachment. All they have is the unconditional cooperation of the media to advance their preposterous narrative,” he says. “If they had a real case, they wouldn’t be wasting time spoon-feeding ridiculous attacks that include defamation and slander on both current and former staff on the intelligence committee."
"What we’re seeing among Democrats on the Intelligence Committee down in the SCIF right now is like a cult,” Nunes is seen saying in a video attached to Wright’s tweet. “These are a group of people loyally following their leader as he bounces from one outlandish conspiracy theory to another. And the media are the cult followers," he added.
Wright, who is all set to essay the role of Commissioner Jim Gordon in the upcoming 'The Batman', was in a celebratory mood when he tweeted about the House passing a resolution for setting ground rules for the impeachment inquiry.
"*I'm November 6, 2018, and I approve this message," he said of the decision, in reference to the day Trump was elected. It is not the first time the James Bond star has been vocal in his criticism for Trump. Earlier this month, he called for the president to be impeached and described him as a "low life clown".
