Mark Hamill is fed up with Donald Trump’s comments on the coronavirus crisis.
As the number of people affected by and dying from the coronavirus continues to rise, Donald Trump welcomes the televised audiences of his daily press conferences.
In response to a critical editorial in the Wall Street Journal, Trump tweeted: “The Wall Street Journal always ‘forgets’ to mention that White House press briefings are at their highest ratings and it’s the only way I can escape the Fake News and get my views across. WSJ is misinformation.”
Perpetually obsessed with ratings & praise for himself, but still not a word of sympathy for the suffering or those who died. The lack of empathy is remarkable. The Thing imitates human behavior far more convincingly than he does. 👾👽🛸#Biden2020 https://t.co/xAtSQqQ7K1 pic.twitter.com/eqDNdPDpec

Mark Hamill, an icon from the “Star Wars” saga, answered him harshly on Twitter. He compared him to the monster from John Carpenter’s 1982 horror classic “The Thing”. “Constantly obsessed with ratings and praise for him, but still not a word of sympathy for the suffering or the dead. The lack of empathy is remarkable. Thing mimics human behavior far more convincingly than he does.”
The Wall Street Journal always “forgets” to mention that the ratings for the White House Press Briefings are “through the roof” (Monday Night Football, Bachelor Finale, according to @nytimes) & is only way for me to escape the Fake News & get my views across. WSJ is Fake News!
