Hollywood writer and director Judd Apatow, who is known for movies like “40 Year-Old Virgin,” just called for President Donald Trump and all Republicans to be arrested and prosecuted because “they are all murderers” who are responsible for “thousands of [coronavirus] deaths.”
Apatow tweeted this in response to comments that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made on Tuesday, when he told “The Hugh Hewitt Show” that efforts made by Democrats to impeach Trump distracted everyone from the impending threat of coronavirus.
“It came up while we were tied down in the impeachment trial,” McConnell said, according to The Hill. “And I think it diverted the attention of the government because everything every day was all about impeachment.”
This was enough to “trigger” Apatow, who argued for McConnell and his fellow Republicans to be arrested and prosecuted, although he did not specify exactly for what.
“I think [the Senate Majority Leader] and all of these politicians should be prosecuted when this is done for the lies which cost thousands of deaths,” Apatow wrote. “He knows Trump is a con man who lied to everyone to delay bad news and that led to thousands of additional deaths. They are all murderers.”

This is far from the first time that Apatow has called President Trump a murderer. Last summer, he likened Trump’s skepticism over climate change to him “murdering our children.”
We are murdering our children. It’s as simple as that. The President could care less. https://t.co/zKMZU3r8VT

Like many liberals, Apatow has also compared President Trump to Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. “He’s a Nazi. He wants no judicial process. He kidnapped children and commits acts of violence for political gain and to support his racist views,” he said back in 2018. “He admires violent dictators. Trump is a Nazi. The debate is over. Soon we will have proof he is a Nazi supported by the Russians.”
There is no limit to what liberals like Apatow will resort to when it comes to bashing Trump. We should be putting any differences aside right now and rallying behind the president while he tries to lead us through this pandemic. But once again, the Left would rather see our country fail than see Trump succeed. As the president himself would say, SAD!
