We could have gone to any celebrity’s Twitter feed to find an anti-Trump screed today, but NBC News decided to publish an op-ed by Robert Redford. Not surprisingly, Reford says it’s time for Trump to go, but at the very least he seems to think the 2020 election is how it’s going to happen.

Redford writes:

We’re up against a crisis I never thought I’d see in my lifetime: a dictator-like attack by President Donald Trump on everything this country stands for. As last week’s impeachment hearings made clear, our shared tolerance and respect for the truth, our sacred rule of law, our essential freedom of the press and our precious freedoms of speech — all have been threatened by a single man.

We’re at a point in time where I reluctantly believe that we have much to lose — it is a critical and unforgiving moment. This monarchy in disguise has been so exhausting and chaotic, it’s not in the least bit surprising so many citizens are disillusioned.

We haven’t heard “monarchy in disguise” before and we have no idea what that’s supposed to mean, anyway. We all know if Trump were removed from office and Mike Pence became president, that would be a theocracy and “The Handmaid’s Tale” come to life, but a monarchy? That’s just stupid.

Remember when all those Hollywood types got together and made a video begging electors to flip their votes to elect Hillary Clinton, even though she lost? Yeah, that was democracy at work.
