Sean Penn's Response to Donald Trump's "Shithole" Comments

Sean Penn Calls Trump an "Enemy of Compassion" in a Brutal Takedown

Sean Penn has a few choice words for President Donald Trump. On Friday, the Academy Award winner published an op-ed in Time, calling Trump's alleged comments about bringing in immigrants from "sh*thole" countries "disgraceful." But he didn't stop there. The 57-year-old, who founded the J/P Haitian Relief Organization and helped Haitians recover from the devastating earthquake that ravished the Caribbean country eight years ago, called on Americans to unite against Trump's troubling rhetoric.

"President Donald Trump's words describing the glorious people of Africa, El Salvador and Haiti are far worse than mere insensitivity or even nationalism. Those standards are not disgraceful enough," Penn wrote. "The solution to our current divisiveness does not live in the White House. Instead, we will find unity only when we recognize that in our current president we have elected, perhaps for the first time in our history, an enemy of compassion.

"Indeed, we can be unified not only with each other but with Africa, El Salvador, Haiti, Mexico, the Middle East and beyond if we recognize President Donald Trump is an enemy of Americans, Republicans, Democrats, Independents and every new child born. An enemy of mankind. He is indeed an enemy of the state."
