Celebrity director Joss Whedon: We’ve got to stop Trump from taking office!

In 2008 and 2012, conservatives and Republicans were told that we just needed to get over the fact that Obama won the Presidency, because he was our leader now. We were told that we needed to accept it and if we didn’t, we were just racist and hated the fact that we had a black President.

Now, in 2016, we’re hearing that “Trump is not my President” from the left and there have even been calls for violence against Trump and/or his voters. To me, this feels like one of those cases.


If you’re like me, you saw the name Joss Whedon and thought, “who?” For the sake of context, let’s get some history on this guy.

Joss Whedon is the middle of five brothers – his younger brothers are Jed Whedon and Zack Whedon. Both his father, Tom Whedon and his grandfather, John Whedon were successful television writers. Joss’ mother, Lee Stearns, was a history teacher and she also wrote novels as Lee Whedon. Whedon was raised in New York and was educated at Riverdale Country School, where his mother also taught. He also attended Winchester College in England for two years, before graduating with a film degree from Wesleyan University.

After relocating to Los Angeles, Whedon landed his first TV writing job on “Roseanne”, and moved on to script a season of “Parenthood”. He then developed a film script which went on to become Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1992). Whedon was very unhappy with the final film – his original script was extensively re-written and made lighter in tone. After this he earned screenwriting credits on such high profile productions as Alien: Resurrection (1997) and Toy Story (1995), for which he was Oscar nominated. He also worked as a ‘script doctor’ on various features, notably Speed (1994).

So he sounds like he’s got a few accomplishments up his sleeve. But of course, he is in Hollywood, so he has to have an extremely liberal opinion about everything.

He took to his Twitter on Monday and Tweeted a message that could almost be taken as a threat.


“This is simple: Trump cannot CANNOT be allowed a term in office. It’s not about 2018. It’s about RIGHT NOW”

Keep your hair on, drama queen.

Let’s do a little brainstorming; what could he possibly mean by that? There’s really no way to keep Donald Trump out of office except by extreme violence. Is that what he wants? Maybe he should elaborate on that a little more before Secret Service pays him a visit.

The responses on this irresponsible Tweet are absolutely amazing, and definitely worth reading more than the drivel of the parent Tweet.





And award for the best clapback goes to this Twitter user right here.
