Actor Samuel L. Jackson made a homophobic joke to mark the birthday of President Donald Trump.
Jackson, known to be a liberal supporter of Democratic Party politicians, used the occasion of the president’s birthday to tweet, “Must have been a party at The White House, Mitch, Paul, Rudy & others were spotted wearing knee pads & carrying these lined up outside. Happy Birthday.”
The tweet also included the clown and s**t emojis as well as a picture of “After Dick Mints,” which, coupled with the “knee pads” comment, was implying Republican leadership were engaging in sex acts with the president.

While some liberals cheered Jackson’s tweet, other people took issue with it, including one person who tweeted a picture of the Avengers actor at a dinner with disgraced movie producer and accused sexual predator Harvey Weinstein.
