Ron Perlman’s signature role remains his hard-charging biker from “Sons of Anarchy.”
Clay Morrow would do, or say, anything to smite his enemies. Sometimes the actor’s Twitter feeds reads the same way. Perlman’s latest broadside against all things Trump? A nasty, homophobic attack on Sen. Lindsey Graham.
The nastygram came following word that former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is in the running for President Trump’s next attorney general.
Here’s Perlman’s tweet/response: “Meanwhile, lindsey graham was heard muttering, ‘how many d***s do I gotta suck around here!’” The actor later deleted the tweet.
That’s more self-awareness than usual for the star, who often leaves the nastiest comments up on his social media account.
Here are four other examples where Perlman shouldn’t have bothered to tweet in the first place.
Give me Trump or give me death
Perlman is 68 and appears to be in fine health. He still claims he’s ready to meet his Maker under the right circumstances. That being if it would help bring an end to the Trump administration’s key figure.
“Let’s get it straight muthaf****s, I’m at the end of a great life. I’m good. It’s my kids I fight for. Mine and yours. And if dying for my Country is what’s in order, I’m ready.”
Slut-shaming a non-slut
Perlman has no proof that Nikki Haley ever had a sexual relationship with President Trump. The same holds true for “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff. That didn’t stop Wolff from insinuating as much to the media. It could be why outlets started pulling back on their wall-to-wall “Fury” coverage.
Perlman took Wolff’s accusation and amplified it on Twitter. Why? Because Haley rightly called it out as garbage.
“I wouldn’t have thought twice about this if she hadn’t started denouncing it so vociferously.”
In the Ron Perlman school of PR, if you vigorously deny insane charges against you it might mean you’re actually guilty.
Kavanaugh is like Hitler, too
The actor sided against Brett Kavanaugh in this year’s bruising Supreme Court nomination fight. No surprise there. Most of his Hollywood brethren did the same, avoiding the pertinent facts in the case.
Perlman took it further.
He compared Sen. Mitch McConnell declaring Kavanaugh’s hearing fight would blow over to Hitler killing six million Jews. Really.
The meltdown commences in 3 … 2 …
Perlman almost quit Twitter, as hard as it is to believe.
Back in May, he unleashed a torrent of messages against All Things Trump, a fever dream of epic proportions. He ended it with a whimper (and promise to take a long social media timeout).
Spoiler Alert: He didn’t keep his word for long.
I’m taking a break. I’m going back to my little corner of the world where all I have is poured into family, friends, and the nobility of storytelling that celebrates our commonalities and not our differences. In the words of Joni Mitchell, if you want me I’ll be in the bar…
