Part-time actor and full time anti-Trump activist Alec Baldwin ripped Republicans across the country this week; saying any American who votes for the President is “mentally ill.
“Trump has reached for, and nearly gained, a control of the federal govt unrivaled by other Presidents. He fired huge numbers of govt professionals. He steamrolled the Congress, whenever possible.
And now this. If you vote for Trump again, you are mentally ill,” posted Baldwin from his foundation’s Twitter account.

Baldwin’s comments come the same time Rep. Adam Schiff called for even more probes into the White House.
“House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Friday introduced legislation that would establish a commission to review the U.S. response to the coronavirus pandemic,” reports The Hill.

“After Pearl Harbor, September 11, and other momentous events in American history, independent, bipartisan commissions have been established to provide a complete accounting of what happened, what we did right and wrong, and what we can do to better protect the country in the future,” Schiff said in a statement.
“It is clear that a comprehensive and authoritative review will be required, not as a political exercise to cast blame, but to learn from our mistakes to prevent history from tragically repeating itself,” Schiff added.
