Weinergate: The DeVito has spoken

Count Danny DeVito as another Hollywood player in disgraced Congressman Anthony Weiner’s corner.

DeVito, currently starring in the FX comedy “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” often shares his liberal views on Twitter. Note: The DeVito Twitter feed shows a “Verified” label, and nothing in the previous Tweets I’ve read indicate it’s the work of an impostor.

Today, DeVito Tweeted his defense of the embattled congressman in light of President Barack Obama’s message that he would resign if he were in Weiner’s shoes:

Anthony don’t listen to him. Don’t resign He’s a great president but he never lived in Brooklyn! Serve the people beg forgiveness from Huma.

The Weiner defense shouldn’t be shocking, but the “great president” line sure is. When Obama was elected Hollywood stars predicted greatness … and then some. Remember Spike Lee’s famous phrase summing up the new president’s seismic change factor, “You’ll have to measure time by `Before Obama’ and `After Obama.’

Two-plus years later? Can anyone realistically call him mediocre, let alone great?

DeVito’s Louie De Palma character from “Taxi” would snort over such nonsense.
