On Sunday, Star Wars actor Mark Hamill, who famously portrayed Luke Skywalker, went after White House advisor and First Daughter Ivanka Trump and her children for a Star Wars-themed tweet. 

Ivanka posted a photo of her family on Saturday wherein her youngest son, three-year-old Theodore, was dressed as a Stormtrooper. She captioned the post, “The Force is strong in my family.” 

This was enough to set off the actor-turned-left-wing Twitter troll. “You misspelled ‘Fraud,’” Hamill wrote, adding the hashtag #GoForceYourself.”

Targeting a three-year-old child is pretty extreme, even for someone who hates President Donald Trump and Ivanka as much as Hamill seems to. Some folks disturbed by the post reacted in the replies. 

“You sure owned those kids, Mark,” said popular political Twitter account Neontaster, who has over 100,000 followers. “Good one.”

“It’s a child in a Star Wars costume, Mark,” former MTV reality star Chet Cannon reminded Mr. Hamill. 

“Come on man,” Human Events’ Ian Miles Cheong wrote. 

“Dude, don’t get mad at kids for liking Star Wars,” remarked Andrew Follett, a research analyst at The Club for Growth.  

@PopularOpinion, a well-known political Twitter account with over 22,000 followers, outlined the interaction as such: 

Ivanka: Look at our kids being cute.

Weird old man: GO F*** YOURSELF

Bluecheck resistance grifters: If I may say, you are basically Oscar Wilde, sir.

Still, the tweet was a hit with most of the anti-Trump Twitter world, garnering nearly half a million likes. Others cheered on Hamill for the tweet in the replies, too. 

HuffPo contributor Kimberley Johnson enthusiastically posted her support: “I cannot love [Mark Hamill] more for this perfect tweet. #GoForceYourself,” she wrote.

“Mommy, why does Luke Skywalker hate us? Because we are terrible, terrible people, son,” mocked Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko. 

“The farce is strong in this family,” biographer Brian Jay Jones added on. 

Producer Kim Sherrell told Hamill, “Well played, sir,” and added a number hashtags: #GoForceYourself #IvankaTrump #Fraud #TrumpCrimeFamily #GFY.”

Hamill’s extreme hatred for President Trump has been promoted by the Left on numerous occasions, including in a special Christmas write-up from The Washington Post last December. Unsurprisingly, Hamill has said Trump is worse than fictional Star Wars villain Darth Vader. 

“Listen, I really get upset then when people compare [Trump] or even Dick Cheney to Darth Vader … ’cause Darth Vader repented. He saw the error of his ways. I don’t see either one of them doing that,” Hamill told the Post.

Hamill also made news for his hatred for Republicans back in March. As noted by The Daily Wire, the actor took a shot a Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) for daring to use Star Wars imagery to fight freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical Climate Change proposal dubbed the “Green New Deal.”

“I was foolish to think this was photoshopped. Had I recognized that this guy was a Republican, I would have instantly realized this was his argument against Global Warming. #CongressSmellsBadOnTheInside,” Hamill posted to Twitter, captioning a photo of Sen. Lee using the Star Wars imagery. 

Hamill later added via Twitter, “I’m using an oversized photo of [Senator Mike Lee] as a prop to push my #MAGA (#MoronsAlwaysGaslightAmericans) #TrustTheScientists agenda. #ClimateChange.”
