Liberal Hollywood is ready to spring into action at the first whisper of a rumor that President Donald Trump might not get impeached.
After The Hill reported Friday that Democratic Congresswoman Jackie Speier (Calif.) hinted that Trump might fire special counsel Robert Mueller, two Hollywood actresses called for a strong protest. Singer Cher announced the idea on Twitter.
“FYI, I DONT CARE IF I HAVE 2 PUSH MYSELF AWAY FROM CHRISTMAS DINNER, IF MUELLER IS FIRED,I WILL GO, MARCH, STAY IN TENTS, UNTILL THIS DANGEROUS PARIAH, HEARS & FEARS THE SOUND OF OUR NEVER ENDING RESOLVE.WE WILL MARCH IN PEACE & UNITY!! WE R AMERICAN CITIZENS.” Cher tweeted out on Dec. 18. “IT IS NOT RUSSIA YET.”
Actress Patricia Arquette responded, “I will be there too-and I will bring a couple of backpacks full of sandwiches and snacks to Share with others!”
In its report, The Hill included a statement by Rep. Jackie Speier.
“The rumor on the Hill when I left yesterday was that the president was going to make a significant speech at the end of next week,” she told a California news outlet “And on December 22, when we are out of D.C., he was going to fire Robert Mueller.”
On Sunday, Donald Trump denied that he had any plans to fire Mueller. But as of Monday, The Hill also reported that several groups have amassed pledges to protest Trump if he fires Mueller. “Over 100,000 Americans have vowed to take part in more than 500 protests across the country should the firing occur, according to a press release,” wrote reporter Mallory Shelbourne.
On Tuesday, Cher tweeted again about Mueller.
“We protest if Mueller gets fired, Rosenstein gets fired, Sessions gets fired,” she insisted. “These 3 thing mean exactly same thing!! We cannot let these men who would do harm to our beloved America, do so without any consequences. We will march!! We will protect you.”
When a follower asked why Cher would protest if Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired, she warned about the “consequences” of a replacement.
“You don’t understand consequences. If Sessions Is fired, Trump has chosen new AG LOYAL 2HIM, who has not recused himself,” she said. “Trump controls NEW AG completely. He will shut down Mueller unless we take the streets in the thousands. And stay. We can spell one another & stay protesting.”
