Actress Kerry Washington Claims ‘Trump Could Kill Political Opponents With Zero Consequences’ – EVOL

Hollywood star Kerry Washington took to her social media account to express outrage, falsely alleging that the U.S. Supreme Court had ruled that Donald Trump could “order the military to kill a political opponent with zero consequences.”

The Scandal actress told her 5.3 million followers that the “conservative” Supreme Court has laid out a “blueprint for dictatorship,” seemingly unaware that the high court did not endorse criminal actions but rather affirmed longstanding legal principles regarding a president’s authority, dating back at least to Barack Obama’s presidency if not earlier.

“Yesterday the Supreme Court ruled that the president is immune from criminal prosecution,” Washington said gravely in her nearly three-minute video.

“So, I’m going to say something right now that may seem extreme to you. But this is not an exaggeration. Please listen to me very carefully. This decision is a blueprint for dictatorship,” she exclaimed.

“This decision leaves the groundwork for a president to do whatever they want, whenever they want, to whomever they want. And the only thing standing in the way of that happening is you. Your voice, your vote,” she continued.

Washington’s assertion is incorrect. The U.S. Supreme Court did not authorize presidents to act without limits.
