What is Rose McGowan's net worth? Slams Trump impeachment as a 'mass distraction' by elites 'ignoring the poor'
The Weinstein accuser blasted the nation's political ruling class, accusing them of sowing seeds of division across the country and ignoring those who were 'starving, sick, and poor'
Rose McGowan has denounced the second impeachment of President Donald Trump by the House of Representatives, likening the move to "cult propaganda” and an effort at “mass distraction" by the elites of the country. The 'Charmed' star, in a fiery tweet on Thursday, blasted the nation's political ruling class, both the left and the right, accusing them of sowing seeds of division across the country and ignoring those who were “starving, sick, and poor.” “This impeachment is Cult propaganda. A theater of mass distraction. US cult members on the left will cheer, those on the right will be in a fury. And the country’s starving, sick & poor will sink farther & farther,” she wrote. “Good thing the Elites are leading us!” she added sarcastically.

McGowan's opinion is the stark opposite of those held by the rest of Tinseltown. Several actors rejoiced late Wednesday when the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives voted for the second time to impeach Trump. Among those celebrating the vote were Chrissy Teigen, Rob Reiner, and Patton Oswalt.
McGowan grabbed headlines when the Harvey Weinstein scandal broke. She alleged that Weinstein had raped her at the Sundance Film Festival in 1997, and that powerful Hollywood figures ignored her accusations for years just to protect the Democratic mega-donor's reputation.
Previously a fervent critic of the Trump administration, turned her guns on the Democrats after recent allegations surrounding top Democrats. She has been one of the few Hollywood figures to call out President-elect Joe Biden over sexual assault allegations brought on by his former staffer Tara Reade, albeit he has denied any wrongdoing. In April, McGowan demanded Biden end his presidential bid as part of the #DropOutBiden campaign.
That said, the 'Scream' star was also not too happy with Biden's VP pick Kamala Harris, whom she slammed over a past controversy in August. Taking to Twitter, McGowan accused the 55-year-old of taking money from convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein. She tagged Harris and asked her: “Did you return the money Weinstein gave you? @SenKamalaHarris How many predators bankroll you?"
In April, McGowan went after Democrats and media outlets New York Times and Washington Post, calling them a "cult" and describing their apparent silence on Biden's sexual assault accusations as "deeper than a cover-up." The 'Planet Terror' star went against Democrat lawmakers who had either ignored or rebuked allegations made by former Senate staffer Tara Reade, who claims the presumptive presidential nominee sexually assaulted her nearly three decades ago, Breitbart reported.
McGowan tweeted a letter saying she had lost faith in Democrats and media outlets such as the New York Times and The Washington Post.
“I used to be a proud Democrat. I used to be a proud American. I would have died for this damned country and its ideals. I was raised to be a proud Democrat...,” McGowan said in her letter. “...And I was always told it was the Democratic Party that were the good guys, that our papers were New York Times & the Washington Post and we as a family loved listing to All Things Considered and we’d talk about how much we loved Ira Glass’ voice,” she explained. “But now I know too much. And I feel really quite a sense of loss tonight.”

The incendiary letter came just days after McGowan had first called on Biden to end his presidential campaign over Reade's accusations. “Fellow citizens, use your power, use your social media voice,” she urged her fans. “Tweet at Joe Biden to end his campaign effective immediately.”
The Italian-born American actress has a net worth of $3 million dollars. McGowan is best known for her critically acclaimed roles in projects like 'Scream', 'Ready to Rumble', and 'The Black Dahlia'.
