Robert Redford is the latest celeb to go all-out in denouncing Donald Trump.
The 83-year-old actor, who is currently the fictional U.S. president in the HBO series “Watchmen”, has penned an op-ed for NBC News calling for Trump to be removed from office.
“We’re up against a crisis I never thought I’d see in my lifetime: a dictator-like attack by President Donald Trump on everything this country stands for,” he begins.
Referring to the ongoing impeachment hearings, Redford adds, “It’s time for Trump to go – along with those in Congress who have chosen party loyalty over their oath to ‘solemnly affirm’ their support for the Constitution of the United States. And it’s up to us to make that happen, through the power of our votes.”
He later writes, “What is happening, right now, is so deeply disturbing that instead of the United States of America, we are now defined as the Divided States of America. Leaders on both sides lack the fundamental courage to cross political aisles on behalf of what is good for the American people.”
Calling the Trump administration a “monarchy in disguise,” Redford goes on to warn, “There are only 11 months left before the presidential election; 11 months before we get our one real chance to right this ship and change the course of disaster that lies before us.”
