Comedian and actor Michael Rapaport unleashed a profanity-laced rant on Wednesday against President Donald Trump and his family, including 14-year-old Barron.
Rapaport was apparently enraged by the president’s suggestion that Americans might be ready to begin working again next month.
“F—ing pig — the real people want to get back to work ASAP?” he began in a video uploaded to Twitter. “You never worked a day in your life.
“You’re worried about the next four years? You need to be worried about the next four days, motherf—er,” Rapaport yelled, going on to call Trump “the worst possible motherf—er in power we could have, making decisions right now.”
“The War at Home” star next turned his venom on the First Family, targeting Trump’s children as well as son-in-law Jared Kushner.
“Why don’t you send your f—ing son, d— stain Donald Trump Jr., big-toothed Eric Trump, little f—ing Barron, f—ing Ivanka, junkyard Jared?” Rapaport demanded.
“Let them take the cars, the trains, the buses, the Amtrak, let them play in the park. And if everything’s good after five days of them playing in the streets, we’ll all go back to [work].”
He also had harsh words for anyone who would vote to re-elect the president. “And people if you fall for this s–t, shame on you,” Rapaport hollered, adding, “This guy doesn’t give a f–k about anyone but himself.”
New York Republican pushes back
While the outburst found support among some Twitter users, others pushed back. One of them was Republican congressional candidate Antoine Tucker.
“I bet every single f—ing thing I own that either Eric or Donald would f–k you up in a fair fight,” he predicted in a response video. “Shut the f–k up. We are tired of you f—ing Hollywood d—riders opening your f—ing mouth and acting like you holier-than-thou,” Tucker went on. The GOP hopeful is vying for the chance to unseat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) in November.
Despite outbursts like those from Rapaport, public opinion is moving in Trump’s direction, both regarding his handling of the coronavirus pandemic as well as his performance as president overall.
A Gallup poll conducted between March 13 and 22 showed Trump’s approval rating at 49 percent while 60 percent of respondents approved of his coronavirus response.
