Trump Impeachment Defense Rolls Out Video Showing Madonna, Johnny Depp, Dems ‘Advocating Violence’

Former US President Donald Trump is accused of inciting the insurrection in the deadly January 6 Capitol riot, but he has also been targeted with insulting and hateful comments many times during his tenure, including verbal swipes from celebrities.

The legal defense team of former US President Donald Trump on Friday displayed a video clip of prominent political and media figures, including singer Madonna and actor Johnny Depp, saying words that could be suggested as advocating violence.

As the fourth day of Trump impeachment trial unfolded, with the defense team presenting their arguments, one of the team’s attorneys, David Schoen, referred to the issue of “heated language” that, House impeachment managers say, was used by Trump.

The clip showed a range of prominent figures that included incumbent President Joe Biden, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Representative Maxine Waters and even Madonna and Johnny Depp. The latter two, in particular, were heard making dubious and oblique remarks.

​Both, however, expanded on their remarks in 2017 at the time that they made them.

After an anti-Trump rant, Madonna said that she did “not promote violence and it’s important people hear and understand my speech in its entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context”. Depp apologized about his apparent joke following condemnation from the White House.

Reacting to the video, some netizens pointed out that Madonna and Depp are “not even elected officials”, as was Trump on 6 January.

​Others supported the arguments, saying that mainstream media ignore it when “Democrats and celebrities advocate violence”.
