Johnny Depp's rhetorical question about the last time a president was assassinated by an actor must make every legitimate opponent of Donald Trump's policies, actions, and words cringe. Depp doesn't help the cause of those who want to disagree with Trump through political dialog and action.
And it's just plain wrong to fantasize--however facetiously--about doing violence to other human beings. It's not the right thing for Ted Nugent to do; it's not the right thing for Johnny Depp to do.
