How dark are things in Trump’s America? So bad that left-wing comedian Sacha Baron Cohen told Variety, “[W]e are past that point” where politics is no longer funny and “there is a danger” to not taking things seriously. “I think you need people to remain repulsed,” he said, urging them to keep up “their passion, and bring it to the voting booth.”

You know the power of imagination is one of the most important characteristics of the mind of a child. Just ask Don Cheadle about his ever-more involved fantasies about the death of President Donald Trump. They’re getting more creative. A couple of years ago he just wanted Trump to “die in a grease fire.” Now the actor is on record to say that he wished Trump could be killed off by Marvel supervillain Thanos and his infamous Infinity War “snap.”
