“When I signed on to play the reluctant assassin Marcus Brutus in this production, I didn’t know Caesar would be an explicit avatar for President Trump,” actor Corey Stoll insists about Public Theater’s version of William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in New York City.
No, of course he didn’t. Who could object to symbolically stabbing the president of the United States to death? The true threat here is “right-wing attacks.”

They were hardly the only “celebrities.” Actor Mickey Rourke said he would “love 30 seconds in a room alone with the little bxxxx” to “give him a Louisville Slugger.” Comedy Central’s Larry Wilcox expressed his desire to smother Trump with “the pillow they used to kill Scalia.” George Lopez tweeted out a decapitation cartoon, and a similar beheading was echoed in a Marilyn Manson music video.
