Senate and House Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, respectively, did not respond to Breitbart News’s request for comment on actor Johnny Depp’s remarks at a festival in England about assassinating President Donald Trump.
Breitbart News sought comments in an email sent twice to Senate Minority Leader Schumer and House Minority Leader Pelosi’s press officials.
Breitbart also sought comment from Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Bernie Sanders (I-VT) but received no response from either, both of whom are outspoken critics of the president.
On Thursday, Depp said at “Cinemageddon,” a film stage at England’s famous Glastonbury Festival, “I think [Donald] Trump needs help. There are a lot of dark places he could go.”
“I’m not insinuating anything – by the way, this will be in the press and it will be horrible – but when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”
