Lib Tough-Guy Actor Bites Off More than He Can Chew when He Picks On Barron Trump

Combined Shape

Tough-guy action movie stars don’t have a difficult career.

They get paid millions to stay in shape, memorize a few lines from a script, and look menacing for the camera. But for some, the on-screen persona doesn’t vanish when production wraps up. Actor Ron Perlman appears to be one of those types.

Known for his role in the “Hellboy” series and other films where he plays a bruiser-type antihero, Perlman is also an avid anti-Trumper, as evidenced by his Twitter account.

Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, no matter how wrong and ill-informed it may be, but this Hollywood star is graduating from attacks on President Trump and instead going after his 13-year-old son.

The attack appears to come as part of a backlash against the president’s comments about Joe Biden.

In an insult that would make a grade-school kid cringe, Perlman used Twitter to call Barron by a girl’s name.

Perlman must have less brain matter than his caveman character on “Quest for Fire” if he thought this was a good move.

There’s no telling how many of Perlman’s 780,000 Twitter followers saw this shameless tweet, but it didn’t take long for users to call out the actor for the low blow.

Replies to the tweet now number in the hundreds, mostly all critical of Perlman’s attempt to insult a young teen.

Perlman isn’t the first leftist to attack the president’s son, and he certainly won’t be the last.

If attacks against former President Barack Obama’s daughters were this common, the mainstream media would have likely made sure it was headline news for weeks. Instead, the family of Donald Trump, including his teenage son, endures endless abuse without much uproar from the press.

Do you think Barron Trump is fair game for critics of the president?

Most everyone understands that prominent figures can be outspoken about their beliefs on politicians. When they cross the line into directly attacking children, they need to be held accountable.

With the mainstream media apparently not interested in doing this, it falls on the shoulders of independent media companies to call out anyone who would target vulnerable kids.
