Veteran Actress Carole Cook on Donald Trump: ‘Where’s John Wilkes Booth when you need him?’

Veteran Actress Carole Cook on Donald Trump: ‘Where’s John Wilkes Booth when you need him?’ – VIDEO

Veteran actress and Broadway star Carole Cook is being criticized for remarks to paparazzi over the weekend the past weekend.

Cook, who is 94, and her husband Tom Troupe were leaving a restaurant in West Hollywood on Sunday night when they were approached by a photographer from  TMZ, who asked if she had heard of a recent incident at “Frozen,” the Broadway musical. During a curtain call at that show last Wednesday, an audience member displayed a large “Trump 2020″ banner and waved it at the cast.

“Is that a proper venue for a Trumper to bring a banner to?” the photographer asked.

“My answer to that is,” Cook said, “where is John Wilkes Booth when you need him? Right?”

In the video, the photographer appeared to laugh at Cook’s response.

“Thank you, darling,” Cook said.

“He killed [a] president,” chimed in Cook’s husband, Tom Troupe.

“Don’t say that,” Cook admonished her husband, before lowering her voice and turning back to the photographer. “They’ll get me for that.”

“Will I be on an enemies’ list? My God, I hope so,” Cook said. “Just keep me out of jail. Or maybe not.”

The U.S. Secret Service said Monday it was aware of Cook’s comments, though it did not say whether they rose to the level of a threat.

“While we do not confirm or comment on the absence or existence of specific investigations, we can say that we investigate all threats (from 94 year old women) against the President,” Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman

Ms. Cook who was the protege of Lucille Ball appeared in the original Broadway productions of 42nd Street and Romantic Comedy and was the second actress (after Carol Channing) to star as Dolly Levi in Hello, Dolly!  And appeared in such feature films as The Incredible Mr. LimpetSixteen CandlesGrandview, U.S.A.American GigoloSummer Lovers.

BRAVA DIVA! – Dem Rep. Maxine Waters Calls Trump Administration “A Bunch Of Scumbags”

Forget Chuck Schumer. Democratic Representative Maxine Waters has seemingly become the spine the Democrats so desperately need to tackle the GOP and the Trump administration. The California congresswoman, whose blunt honesty coupled with priceless facial expressions, have scored her a new generation of admirers who are tired of all the politics and simply want the straight talk.

At the end of February Waters appeared on MSNBC’s “All In With Chris Hayes” and in true Maxine Waters fashion, held nothing back when discussing Donald Trump’s administration, specifically its alleged ties with Russia.

“This is a bunch of scumbags. That’s what they are, who are all organized around making money,” Waters said.

Waters then proceeded to eviscerate the Trump administration calling the cabinet the “Kremlin clan” for its proposed dealings with Russia, and specifically tore into White House chief of staff Reince Priebus’ attempt to water down a New York Times story backing this claim.

“Priebus has been trying to clean up for Donald Trump for far too long. When he was making outrageous statements, when he was basically lying,”

YOU GO GURL!  Mad respect for Rep. Maxine Waters.
