Following left-wing celebrities Johnny Depp, Jim Carrey and Madonna, Wile E. Coyote has also now called for President Trump to be assassinated. He made the threat through a series of small wooden signs he held up in a remote American desert.
It is not Coyote’s first foray into politics. He vocally supported free health care at Bernie Sanders rallies and during his many post-cartoon-episode hospitalizations.
Like other stars who threaten Trump, Coyote’s fortunes have hit hard times. His TV career has dwindled and the Road Runner stopped receiving his calls, thinking them to be some sort of trick. In 2016, he was hired to do unboxing videos for the Acme Corporation. However, they dropped him earlier this month when a mishap with Acme Dehydrated Boulders® resulted in a massive rockslide in Yosemite National Park.
In an article entitled, “Girlboss Canceled by Netflix After One Season”, The Hollywood Reporter did not mention Mr. Coyote at all. In a second article, they did mention him and suspected that his words were a publicity stunt to restart his disaster-prone career.
Myopic off-screen pal Mr. Magoo said that he disagrees with the politics and dinner choices of his “hirsute friend.” However, he understands his need for attention, saying, “Oh Coyote, you’ve done it again!” He then drove into a chicken coop.
The Secret Service expressed no concern about this latest threat. A spokesman said, “Given Mr. Coyote’s history, we fully expect that any scheme by him against the president will only end in Mr. Coyote plunging off a cliff or being blown up by his own bomb and then plunging off a cliff.”
