(PresidentialWire.Com)- Actor and “comedian” Patton Oswalt has no shame, particularly when it comes to his blatant hatred of President Donald Trump and his supporters. The star of the “King of Queens” TV show last week compared lockdown protestors with…Anne Frank.
Oswalt took to Twitter to complain about those who are concerned about the damage being done to the American economy, and the potential future harm the lockdown poses to the mental health of the nation.
“Anne Frank spent 2 years hiding in an attic and we’ve been home for just over a month with Netflix, food delivery and video games and there are people risking viral death by storming state capital buildings,” he said.

Oswalt, with a net worth of around $14 million, is no doubt enjoying lockdown. When you own a large home with a big garden and a swimming pool, it’s easy to see the national quarantine measures as a chance to relax. For millions of Americans, however, it’s not so easy.
More than 20 million Americans have filed for unemployment benefits over the last month, meaning they’ll struggle to pay their bills and put food on the table. For those who live month to month, this isn’t a chance to play video games and watch Netflix…it’s a daily struggle to survive.
But Oswalt thinks an Anne Frank reference is suitable. What is wrong with him?
Protests have taken place across America in recent weeks, as the lockdown measures implemented by governors have begun to seriously affects peoples’ lives. One of the most extreme examples is Michigan, where Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer imposed some of the strictest lockdown measures in the country.
Whitmer deemed churches non-essential businesses, forcing them to close, while allowing marijuana stores to continue operating as normal. Thousands of people turned out to protest outside the state capitol building, bringing the surrounding roads to a halt with their cars.
Does Oswalt not realize people are protesting for a reason?
