Actor Ron Perlman lashed out at President Donald Trump after the European Union banned Americans from entering the region amid high number of Covid-19 cases in the country. "Americans under Donald Trump have been banned from entering into Europe. Because we are diseased. Yes my friends, in 3 short years this reality show clown has turned us into a ‘Shithole Country’," the 'Sons of Anarchy' star declared on Twitter. The EU has also applied similar restrictions to countries such as Turkey, Russia, and Brazil, all of whom have reported a large number of cases of the virus.

And that was not the end of the criticisms that Perlman had reserved for the POTUS. On July 2, he appeared on “The Dean Obeidallah Show” on SiriusXM, and slammed Trump as “a f**king guy” who will “do anything to satiate this sexual fetish” for money, power and attention. "The sick and twisted part of it all is that he’s managed to resonate in a sector of this country,” he said. “It blows my mind that anybody could listen to this guy for one fucking second, Dean, and think that he’s the president of anything.”

He also said that Trump is sure to be sent to hell because of how poorly he was handling the health crisis in the nation. “If you go to hell, I don’t know a better way to get there than the way this guy has comported himself during this horrifically tragic event,” Perlman added.

Last month. Perlman made headlines after Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) challenged him to wrestle Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) following the Hellboy actor’s attacks on Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL). However, Perlman did not appear to have accepted his invitation. He has also attacked the Republican Party back in January after Iowa Rep. Steve King appeared to defend white nationalism during an interview with the New York Times.

"Hey Kevin McCarthy! Ted Cruz! Steve Scalise! How dare you suddenly start condemning the Nazi that is Steve King when you’ve been cheering him on for his entire embarrassing career! You are the KKK party. Own it muthafuckas! And one more thing…F**K YOU!" he tweeted. 

King was quoted as saying during the controversial interview: “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive. Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”

He later attempted to salvage the situation by releasing a statement on the interview. “I reject those labels and the evil ideology that they define. Further, I condemn anyone that supports this evil and bigoted ideology which saw in its ultimate expression the systematic murder of 6 million innocent Jewish lives. It's true that like the Founding Fathers, I am an advocate for Western Civilization's values, and that I profoundly believe that America is the greatest tangible expression of these ideals the World has ever seen. Under any fair political definition, I am simply a Nationalist."
