Actress Lori Petty: Republicans Are a ‘Death Squad’ for Supporting ‘Murderer’ Trump


Actress Lori Petty declared Saturday morning that Republican lawmakers have become a “death squad” because of their continued support for President Donald Trump and his response to the Chinese coronavirus pandemic.

The Orange Is the New Black star suggested on social media that if Republican lawmakers removed Trump from office, they would become heroes in the eyes of his Democratic opponents.

“[President Donald Trump] is unfit, unable and [doesn’t give a fuck] about you or me or your family,” she wrote. “And the Republicans don’t understand if they got rid of him they’d be heroes to us, not the Death Squad they have become by supporting this murderer.” She did not elaborate on this label for the president.

Petty re-posted this message with minor variations — twice — not realizing one of the idionsyncracies of Twitter. By tagging the president’s account at the beginning of her post, this kept the tweet from appearing on her timeline directly, which she interpreted as “censorship” in a post she has since deleted.

“[President Donald Trump] is unfit, unable and doesn’t care about you or me or anyone,” she wrote in her second attempt. “And the Republicans don’t understand if they got rid of him they’d be heroes to us, not the Death Squad by supporting this psychotic.” This message was ultimately deleted.

Before apparently realizing the real reason for her messages’ decreased visibility, she shared a “clean version” that would be more visible. However, the lack of profanity did not affect anything; the difference was she did not tag the president at the start.

“He’s unfit, unable and doesn’t care,” she wrote. “And the Republicans don’t understand if they got rid of him they’d be heroes to us, not the Death Squad. /clean version.”

The 56-year-old actress is best known for her roles in 1990s films like Point Break, A League of Their Own, and the cult hit Tank Girl.
