While on stage in front of a sold-out crowd, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor asked, “Can we bring Trump here? I think he needs help.”
Depp, who was at the music festival to present his 2004 film The Libertine, continued, “It is just a question—I’m not insinuating anything. By the way, this is going to be in the press. It will be horrible. I like that you’re all part of it. But when was the last time an actor assassinated a president?”
“I want to clarify, I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while and maybe it is time. Thank you so much for having me here.”
Depp’s comments to the nearly 2,000 fans references President Abraham Lincoln‘s assassination in 1865, when he was killed by actor John Wilkes Booth.
Trump has yet to weigh on the comments
