When most Americans look for intelligent commentary on important political decisions, opinionated actor Samuel L. Jackson isn’t the first person they think of.
Nevertheless, the Hollywood actor, whose claim to fame is loudly saying the “F-word” as often as possible, has decided that the country was missing his take on the controversy over a sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh stemming from the early 1980s.
After the Supreme Court nominee defended himself in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Friday against completely unproven claims of misconduct from 35 years ago, Jackson jumped on Twitter to slam the nominee.
The foul-mouthed actor re-tweeted a parody video that intercut Kavanaugh’s testimony with a clip of Jackson in the movie “Pulp Fiction” seeming to angrily question the judge.
“Funny as hell,” commented Jackson, “but there’s nothing funny about his Lying Fratboy Ass!!!”
Yes, apparently an actor whose main gig is appearing in R-rated movies knows with certainty what happened in a Maryland suburb in the early 1980s, even though the accuser herself can’t reliably explain it and all of the witnesses she’s named say it didn’t happen.
Somebody get Samuel L. Jackson to Washington, fast! America needs his testimony.
After the actor declared Kavanaugh a “lying fratboy,” Jackson doubled down on the accusation in a follow-up tweet. “Apologies to you Fratboys that aren’t liars & rapists, I cast that net a lil bit wide,” Jackson posted
