[See NewsBusters for more.] Well known liberal celebrity Sean Penn appeared on a live, post-debate episode of Jimmy Kimmel to lecture Americans on their choice for 2020. The actor condescended, “If people truly want to vote against their own interests, [Trump will] be the president of the United States again.” However, “But if they are paying attention, there are talented people in the group we saw tonight.” Regarding Trump’s leadership, Penn saw it only going in negative directions: “And we've seen the potential of a president, for example the current president, to lead us to El Paso and to lead us to all kinds of enhanced hatred and anger and separation.”
