Another Hollywood celebrity launched a vulgar tirade at the Trump family — this time it was comedian Wanda Sykes attacking Ivanka Trump for applauding her father’s reversal of separating illegal immigrant families at the border.
Ms. Trump had thanked the president for signing an executive order temporarily ending family separation at the border and called on Congress to come up with a permanent fix.
Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) June 20, 2018
Ms. Sykes, an LGBT activist and outspoken critic of President Trump, most recently worked on the controversial but wildly successful reboot of the hit ABC sitcom “Roseanne.” Ms. Sykes quit the show shortly before it was canceled due to a racist Twitter comment by the show’s star, Roseanne Barr.
It’s the latest profane outburst from a celebrity attacking the president and his family. On Wednesday, actor Peter Fonda wrote in a now-deleted tweet that 12-year-old first son Barron Trump should be “ripped” from his mother’s arms and placed in a cage with “pedophiles.”
Just this month, comedian Samantha Bee has called Ivanka a “feckless c—t,” actor Robert De Niro has shouted “f—k Trump” during the Tony Awards, and comedian Kathy Griffin has called first lady Melania Trump a “feckless complicit piece of s—t.”
