Hollywood Calls For Trump's Impeachment For Visiting Supporters Outside WR Hospital
Celebrities implode following Trump's drive-by
Hollywood celebrities imploded following President Donald Trump's surprise visit to his supporters outside Walter Reed Military Hospital in Washington on Sunday.
Trump drove past supporters, where he wore a mask and never left his vehicle, prompting the Hollywood elite to create a firestorm on Twitter expressing their anger over the move.
Stars like Jim Carrey, Patton Oswalt, Michael Moore, and Bett Midler claimed Trump was endangering the lives of the Secret Service agents
But the drive was approved by medical officials and all necessary safety precautions were taken, the White House stated.
Jim Carrey accused the president of putting government lives in danger by taking “the Secret Service for a dangerous ride.”
Bette Midler cited Dr James Phillips, chief of disaster medicine at George Washington University who described the drive-by as "insanity".
“Every person in the vehicle during that unnecessary Presidential ‘drive-by’ has to be quarantined for 14 days,” Dr. Phillips, attending physician, Walter Reed. “They may get sick; they may die. For political theater. Commanded by Trump to risk their lives for theater. #INSANITY— bettemidler (@BetteMidler) October 5, 2020
Dr James Phillips wrote on Twitter:
"That presidential SUV is not only bulletproof, but hermetically sealed against chemical attack.
"The risk of COVID-19 transmission inside is as high as it gets outside of medical procedures.
"The irresponsibility is astounding.
"My thoughts are with the Secret Service forced to play."
Anti-Trump comedian Patton Oswalt cited the same doctor.
Actor Jeffrey Wright was upset that those agents were wearing PPE.

"By taking a joy ride outside Walter Reed the president is placing his Secret Service detail at grave risk."
