Actress Jodie Foster Reprises ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Role To Take Down Trump [VIDEO]

I remember when Silence of the Lambs came out. I really enjoyed the movie with Jodie Foster. It’s not one I would watch multiple times, but it’s a good movie. Albeit very disturbing. Foster has decided to use her iconic role in the movie to make a skit against President Trump for Stephen Cobert’s Late Show which was played last night. In it, surprise, surprise, she tries to get information on possible collusion between Trump and Russia from a locked up Hannibal Lecter. Who of course is appropriately played by Colbert. Lecter was a brilliant, insane, murderous cannibal in the movie. Sounds like perfect type casting to me.

I have to say I am very disappointed in Foster. Colbert, I expect this from, but not Jodie Foster. It’s a shame she would use her Oscar-winning role as FBI agent Clarice Starling from the 1991 horror film The Silence of the Lambs in such a degrading way. “You’re one of [Robert] Mueller’s, aren’t you?” Colbert asks Foster, referring to the Special Counsel investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials. “Still hunting President Trump?” They are comparing Trump to another murderer in the movie that was hunted by Foster.

“We were golfing buddies once,” Colbert-as-Lecter continues. “We ate our caddie, turned him into a taco bowl with a nice Diet Coke.”

“Doctor, what can you tell me about the President?” Foster asks him seriously.

“What is his nature? What does he do, this man you seek?” Colbert inquires.

“He’s an idiot, who says the first thing that comes to mind,” Foster bluntly relates to Colbert. Nice. Another celebrity bites the dust as far as I’m concerned. That is extremely tacky and in bad taste.

Foster then relates her worst memory of the election: “One night, on a Tuesday, Donald Trump won the presidency, and then I heard a strange noise. It sounded like a scream, some kind of screaming. I crept into the living room, and the TV was on. I was so scared, so scared. MSNBC, the anchors. They were crying.” That was the sound of communist morons losing, you twit.

Colbert then goes back at and asks Foster what she has found in the Trump investigation herself. He’s shocked… shocked I tell you… when she lists the evidence she has so far. including indictments against former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. Which doesn’t relate to Trump at all, but whatever. “I want to come in there with you,” Foster tells Colbert. “It seems safer in there than it does out here.” So, she’d rather cuddle with a murderous monster than stay out in the real world with Trump. I used to think she was smart… I just revised that. She’s a dumbass. I’m sure there are plenty of blood-thirsty criminals she can go cuddle with because it feels ‘safer’. She should really do that. Like right now.

CBS’ Late Show wasn’t all that hot to begin with. But since Colbert has gotten a hold of it, he’s destroyed it magnificently. Now, it’s nothing more than a star-studded Trump hate-fest. You couldn’t pay me to watch it. Wonder what Anthony Hopkins, who played Hannibal Lecter, thinks of all this? Probably best I don’t know at this rate.
