Sarah Silverman Threatens President Trump With This Shocking Statement

Sarah Silverman is a vocal Donald Trump opponent, and the comedic actress wasn’t joking when she tweeted a call for the military to turn against the Commander-in-Chief. Some Hollywood personalities chimed in to agree.

On Wednesday, amid the U.C. Berkeley riots, Silverman tweeted in all caps: "WAKE UP & JOIN THE RESISTANCE. ONCE THE MILITARY IS W US FASCISTS GET OVERTHROWN. MAD KING & HIS HANDLERS GO BYE BYE."

She followed up with a tweet the next day saying, "FEAR can motivate even peacenik snowflakes 2 incite violence & last night I felt it hard. Trying 2 keep in check bc damnit I love u America."

The reference was to the 'peacenick snowflakes' (a/k/a liberal university students) rioting on campus. The violent riots were sparked by a conservative news editor coming to speak at the university. Students set fires, vandalized the campus and attacked a woman wearing a Trump hat. Other students who agreed with the rioters in principle, but spoke out against the violence, were also attacked.

Filmmaker Lexi Alexander tweeted in response to the incident, "Hate speech is not free speech; Hate speech is not free speech; Hate speech is not free speech; It's called incitement. It's a crime."

This implies Alexander was actually privy to the speech conservative journalist Milo Yiannopoulos never got to give, otherwise she'd have to admit she didn't actually know what was he was going to say and that she simply was supporting people violate the First Amendment.

"This is just the beginning. When will all the fools who are still supporting Trump realize what is at stake?" tweeted Judd Apatow, director best known for the film ‘Trainwreck.' He deleted his tweet shortly after making it as the violence continued to escalate.

Trump, according to reports, was not a scheduled speaker at Berkeley that night, or the topic of the speech by Yiannopoulos. The topic the Greek and British journalist was going to discuss was cultural appropriation. He and his people had to be evacuated from the campus.
