Rose McGowan writes passionate open letter to Donald Trump

‘Living with your daily reign of terror cancer, and it is terror cancer, is something we are unwilling to do for another minute’

Actress-turned-activist Rose McGowan has published a fiery open letter to Donald Trump; calling him “poison”, a “terror cancer”, and a “massive disease.”

The Doom Generation star sent the passionate 300-word piece out to media outlets on Wednesday afternoon (August 10), before posting it in full on her Facebook account. She addressed Trump and his media “enablers” – which includes the Murdochs, CNN, and FOX – and accused them of holding the public “hostage”. She also said that his politics were making her sick to the “pit of her vagina”.

“This is real. We are sick,” McGowan explained. “Living with your daily reign of terror cancer, and it is terror cancer, is something we are unwilling to do for another minute. I do not want to live my life this way. I am a proud AMERICAN & GLOBAL CITIZEN who's [sic] head is bowed to her knees in because she is sickened every day. Because of you. It is NOT most of America who should be ashamed, it is YOU for propagating this propaganda.”

Her letter comes days after the Republican nominee made a casual callout to “Second Amendment people” to block Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid – in other words, a veiled request for an actual gun-inflicted assassination of the Democrat.

McGowan – who has been vocal about her disdain for Trump up to now – went on to urge those in positions of power to “think differently and to do better.”

“We, the public, need for you to look for your humanity,” she added. “It’s that easy to be a better person and to do the right thing no matter the cost. The time is now.”
