Hollywood is no stranger to political friction, but few politicians have inspired as much hatred and disgust as Donald Trump. In fact, many of his fellow celebrities have even gone as far to threaten the president. Here are fifteen notable instances:

15. Pearl Jam

The Seattle Grunge scene is no stranger to political commentary. Like their forefathers and -mothers in the punk movement, Grunge rockers like Kurt Cobain were unafraid to openly criticize corrupt political movements and officials. Cobain’s been dead for twenty-five years. But his contemporary Eddie Vedder and his band Pearl Jam are still around and kicking—and they aren’t fans of Trump. In a 2018 Montana concert, Pearl Jam released posters featuring a cartoon version of the president. Dead on the White House lawn. Being picked at by a bald eagle.

14. Anthony Bourdain

The late Anthony Bourdain was noted for his direct way of speaking. Prior to his passing, a TMZ reporter asked him what he’d serve at a peace summit between Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un. The quick witted celebrity chef immediately replied, “Hemlock.”

13. George Lopez

Comedian George Lopez found no humor in Trump’s campaign trail antics. During the March 2016 primaries, Lopez made it clear what he thought of Donald’s xenophobia: He tweeted a cartoon photo depicting former Mexican president Vincente Fox holding Trump’s detached head. The caption? “Make America Great Again.”

12. Marilyn Manson

Like his Grunge contemporaries, Marilyn Manson has never been afraid to speak his mind. Since his appearance on the music scene in the nineties, Manson has been a scapegoat, a figure of fear, and a patron saint to all weird, pseudo-goth teenagers. No stranger to controversy and accusations of inspiring violence (he was, after all, the moral guardians’ primary punching bag around Columbine), Manson opened himself up to more criticism in 2016. In his music video for “Say10”, released shortly after Trump’s election, Manson depicted the president decapitated and lying in his own blood.

11. Moby

Techno musician Moby got in on Manson’s act of injuring the president in his music videos. In a 2017 music video, Moby paints the US as a hyper capitalist, racist dystopia, with a Transformer like animated president as its evil dictator. The animated Trump morphs into a hybrid dollar sign-swatsika and proceeds to reek havoc over the nation. He doesn’t get away scot free though—at the end of the video, he explodes, an event as fiery as his twitter feed.

10. Madonna

80’s pop starlet Madonna has been a thorn in the side of conservative Christians since her initial rise to fame. From her provocative sexuality to her Virgin Mary inspired name, Madonna has been accused of being a bad influence and a sign of moral breakdown. The Christian right’s rage towards the singer only grew following the January 2017 Women’s March on Washington. In a speech to her fellow protestors, Madonna admitted she’d “considered blowing up the White House” and directed several expletives not only at Trump, but at several other prominent Republicans. The Christian right was not pleased.

9. Big Sean

Popular rapper Big Sean did a two-for-one and came after Trump and ISIS in the same song. On his 2017 album “I Decided”, Big Sean rapped a freestyle verse placing attacking the president and the notorious terrorist group in the same sentence: “And I might just kill ISIS with the same icepick/That I murder Donald Trump in the same night with.” This violent boast makes it clear just how lowly he and many others think of the commander-in-chief.

8. Rosie O’Donnell



Former View host Rosie O’Donnell has always been a controversial figure. Unapologetically blunt and direct, O’Donnell has stepped on the toes of many, including her former co-hosts. She drew the ire of conservatives and Trump fans in July 2017, when she Tweeted a link to a game called “Push Trump Off a Cliff Again”. Predictably, the goal of the game was to shove the POTUS off the cliff as many times as the player could.

7. Mickey Rourke

In 2015, actor Mickey Rourke had some strong words for the president. Speaking to TMZ, Rourke referred to the  then-candidate as “scum”, and a “little bitch bully”. Rourke expressed a desire to beat up the president, saying he’d love “thirty seconds in a room alone with the little bitch”. For all his bravado, Trump declined to give Mr. Rourke his thirty seconds.

6. Robert DeNiro

Similarly to Mr. Rourke, legendary actor Robert DeNiro has expressed a burning desire to punch the president. In a 2017 interview—rather fittingly, on The View—DeNiro stated that he wanted to punch Trump in the face, prompting a Twitter rant from the president. DeNiro later backtracked on his comments, saying he wasn’t actually going to punch the president, but that he “needed to hear it” in order to get his ego and nastiness in check.

5. The Public Theatre

New  York City’s famous non-profit Public Theatre took a stab at the Donald. From May to June of 2017, they staged a version of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”. Set in a modern era, the play featured a Trump influenced character in the title role. As anyone who knows their Shakespeare (and their history) is aware, the titular Caesar is brutally stabbed to death by several angry senators.

4. The Nightly Show’s Larry Wilmore

Host of the now-cancelled Comedy Central talk show “The Nightly Show” Larry Wilmore had strong words about both the president and the late supreme court justice Antonin Scalia. In late February 2016, Wilmore stated that he’d like to smother Trump to death. “I don’t want to give him any more oxygen. That’s not a euphemism, by the way. I mean it literally. Somebody get me the pillow they used to kill  Scalia and I’ll do it — I’ll do it!” The comedian enthusiastically offered.
