On Sunday, actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner issued a tweet that sparked a great deal of criticism, calling for an “all out war” against President Trump.
“When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong.
#Treason,” he said.

Reiner’s comments were slammed by a number of social media users, with many suggesting that the actor’s tweet was the latest violence-inducing screed aimed at President Trump, Breitbart said.
You're calling for

Mere weeks after a #Resistance terrorist
You better hope we don't

This is nothing new for the former All in the Family star, as Breitbart noted:
Reiner has long resisted President Trump.
Last May, he called then-candidate Trump “insane” and said a lot of his supporters are “racist.”
Weeks after President Trump was sworn into office, Reiner called Trump’s White House “a cancerous presidency that we cannot allow to spread.”
“What’s interesting here is that we really have a test, and we are being tested as to whether or not our democracy is going to survive,” Reiner said on MSNBC in February. “We have somebody who’s mentally unstable, who is a pathological liar. There’s no getting around that, who’s running our country.”
The Washington Times added:
Mr. Reiner’s comments came less than two weeks after 66-year-old gunman James T. Hodgkinson shot House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and three others on an Alexandria, Virginia, baseball field. Mr. Hodgkinson, a former volunteer for Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign, died after a shootout with cops during the attack on congressional Republicans.
“Maybe wait a few months past the last time someone on your team tried to assassinate a congressman before calling for ‘all-out war,’ ” National Review’s Kevin Williamson responded, The Blaze reported.
Fox’s Sean Hannity countered the director by mocking his role in the 1970s television series “All in the Family.”
