Many liberals have been criticizing President Trump mercilessly since his campaign days, and after becoming president it has only gotten worse.
Yet some surprising support has come out of liberal Hollywood from actress Lindsay Lohan, telling people via Twitter to “Stop #bullying him & start trusting him.” (via Washington Examiner)
Lindsay Lohan was a very popular actress in her youth, starring in films like “The Parent Trap” and “Mean Girls.”
In early July, she released a surprising tweet showing her support of Trump, “THIS IS our president. Stop #bullying & start trusting him. Thank you personally for supporting #THEUSA.” Then she sent out further support of the president and his family in the wake of additional critical tweets, “@realDonalTrump @IvankaTrump @FLOTUS @DonaldJTrumpJr. are kind people. As An American, why speak poorly of anyone? #FAITH # July4th.”
What sparked Lohan’s support for Trump and his family was Trump’s attempts to save a little boy in the U.K. suffering a terminal illness. The boy, Charlie Gard, was born with a rare genetic condition that leaves him unable to breathe on his own. His parents have wanted to take Charlie to the U.S. to undergo experimental therapy that could help him and is not offered in the U.K.
Unfortunately for the family, the hospital caring for Charlie is not allowing him to make the trip because they consider it damaging to have him undergo further treatment. The parents lost a legal battle when the European Court of Human Rights agreed with an earlier ruling that such treatments would cause “significant harm” and that Charlie should be taken off life support.
Pope Francis was critical of the hospital and court’s decision, saying the parents should be permitted to do everything possible to help their child, “To defend human life, above all when it is wounded by illness, is a duty of love that God entrusts to all.” Trump came out with a tweet agreeing with the pope and saying, “If we can help little #CharlieGard, as per our friends in the U.K. and the Pope, we would be delighted to do so.”
With very few exceptions, Hollywood has launched an assault on Trump and on conservatives. Do you support President Trump? Let everyone know in the poll below!
Lohan’s tweet was in response to a similar pro-Trump tweet that had a link to Charlie’s story on Breitbart, saying, “For ALL YOU CRYBABIES At @CNN Whining About Trump Beating Up Your Logo Take A Look At What A REAL POTUS & Man Does.”
The battle for Charlie’s life and the high-profile tweets are a scary insight into what can happen under the liberal agenda. Parents aren’t being allowed to do everything in their power to save the life of their child because liberal doctors and judges believe ending life support is better. This is not surprising considering the wave of liberal support for abortion and doctor-assisted suicide..
Lindsay Lohan is a welcome voice amid the hurricane of anti-Trump rhetoric coming out of liberal Hollywood. Hopefully with her added support, the liberal agenda can be pushed back enough for Charlie Gard to receive the care he needs to live. He deserves every chance at a better life.
