Comic actor Tom Arnold dedicated an entire TV show to taking down President Donald Trump.
No spoiler alert required: Arnold’s “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes” on Viceland didn’t get the job done. The show itself lasted just one season.
Still, the “Roseanne” alum remains one of the most ardent anti-Trump voices in Hollywood, even if his career can’t quite match the fire from fellow Trump critics Rob Reiner, Robert De Niro and Mark Ruffalo (to name a few).
The aforementioned names routinely savage both President Trump and his administration. Still, they generally avoid targeting First Lady Melania Trump.
Even professional comics tread carefully when it comes to First Ladies, past and present. It’s a cultural sign of respect, plus an acknowledgement that these wives avoid nasty partisan battles.
The previous First Lady, Michelle Obama did just that for two terms.
So what Arnold Tweeted earlier today is both shocking and wildly out of bounds by societal norms. [Caution: adult language ahead]
This isn’t the first time Arnold used Twitter to toxic effect. He previously suggested Justice Brett Kavanaugh molested children without a scrap of evidence. He also told black conservative activist and talk show host Candace Owens to “suck racist d***.”
IMDB.com says Arnold has three projects in pre-production now. Will any of those film companies cut ties with Arnold in grand Cancel Culture fashion?
Remember, had he slammed First Lady Michelle Obama like he did the current First Lady his Apology Tour would last for months, if not years.
That’s assuming he’d ever work again.
