Sean Penn was a train-wreck when he appeared on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” Penn admitted that he was drugged-up as he immediately started to chain-smoke, making Colbert somewhat uncomfortable. His purpose for being there was to promote his new book, which he calls fiction, except he also admits that it’s about Trump. Penn proceeded to make a deadly threat, and it was so cringeworthy that the audience gave him a nasty surprise.
Penn has taken the election of Donald Trump so badly, he stopped doing movies and decided to write a book focused on the assassination of the president. Penn must make it clear that it’s a work of fiction. In fact, Colbert wouldn’t mention Trump’s name, fearing a visit from the Secret Service. But numerous articles have already come out discussing Penn’s sick fantasy novel, so we know that it is all about.
“I’m doing well,” Penn, 57, told his host on Monday’s episode. “You’ve inherited a little of the Ambien I had to take to get to sleep after a red-eye last night.” When Colbert, 53, asked if Penn was still under the influence of the doze-inducing drug, Penn shrugged, “A little bit.”
Penn began by explaining that the increased divisiveness in the country, as well as his own hot temper on movie sets, drove him to write a novel. Right, a novel about assassinating the sitting President of the United States.
Penn said, “I increasingly don’t play well with others. So it becomes less enjoyable. I love that process when I love it, but I’m not loving it anymore and that’s why I finally came around to writing a novel because I didn’t have collaborators. I was never disappointed with me.”
Said like a true narcissist. We all know the leftist actor smooched it up with Communist Dictator Hugo Chavez, and so it’s no wonder a true patriot like Donald Trump would cause Sean Penn to lose his mind.
The audience wasn’t amused, especially when Penn launched into his utter amazement with the “Parkland Five.” The “Parkland Five” is led by David Hogg and his sidekick Emma Gonzalez. These are the teens who CNN rocketed to stardom after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Penn thinks these new “tragedy celebrities” have all the answers to fix America.
Well, the audience’s nervous laughter was bad enough, but immediately social media lit up, reacting to Penn’s drug-fueled nonsense.
