Michael Shannon Hates Trump and Wants Old People to Just Die

Michael Shannon will not hold his tongue about how much he fucking hates Donald Trump.

After calling the midwest “A big, red dildo” in an earlier interview, Shannon’s gone off again while doing press for “Nocturnal Animals.”

When Trump gets brought up about halfway through the interview with Metro, Shannon claims he’s horrified, worried for his two daughters, and thinks the Orange One may bring about the end of civilization.

When asked if he felt inspired by the many protests and backlash going on, Michael said,

These protests are so moving, but ultimately what are they going to accomplish? I’m so glad these kids on the campuses everywhere are going ape s—, but at the end of the day the guy’s still going to be president. Maybe you need a civil war or something.

Hot damn, a Civil War?! Shannon goes on to insist that Trump voters need to be dealt with.

The wall isn’t between the U.S. and Mexico; the wall is between people who voted for Trump and people who didn’t. And we’ve got to do something about it. I don’t want to live in a country where people voted for Trump. I want to live in some other f—ing country. But I don’t want to run away. So we’re just going to have to bust this thing up.

Seems like he’s going full General Zod on this one. Whether he wants to break up the country or sacrifice the red states to the God of Liberalism, he somehow wants the Trumpies to change their minds.

One strategy Michael has is to get old people to die off.

There’s a lot of old people who need to realize they’ve had a nice life, and it’s time for them to move on. Because they’re the ones who go out and vote for these assholes. If you look at the young people, between 18 and 25, if it was up to them Hillary would have been president.

On the plus side, this is one of the only times an adult has said anything nice about millennials, so that’s sweet.

Shannon doesn’t even have mercy for any family members who voted Trump. Though his family is staunchly democratic, he wouldn’t hesitate to shun anyone on the Red team.

F— ’em. You’re an orphan now. Don’t go home. Don’t go home for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Don’t talk to them at all. Silence speaks volumes.

Michael is surely going to have an aneurysm if his level of rage stays this high for the next four years. It will help him calm down if Trump doesn’t utterly ruin the society we’ve created. But that’s still up in the air for now.
