Sean Penn Novel: Trump’s America ‘A Nation In Need Of An Assassin’

Even though a Bernie-supporting socialist opened fire on several GOP Congressmen just last year, Sean Penn’s debut novel characterizes a Trump-like America as “a nation in need of an assassin,” according to the Daily Mail.

Penn’s 176-page fiction novel, titled Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, tells the story of a “modern American man, entrepreneur, and part-time assassin.”

Actor Sean Penn’s debut novel’s main character calls for the assassination of the president and dares the commander-in-chief to “Tweet me, b****,” revealed.

“The main character, septic tank cleaner Bob Honey, tells tales of working with military contractors in Iraq, being employed by the government to kill the nation’s resource-draining elderly, and meeting an El Chapo-esque drug lord who had just escaped prison,” describes TDM.

Throughout the novel, readers follow this Bob Honey, a 55-year-old Southern Californian, as he laments of his “neighbor’s death by an out-of-control helicopter,” hallucinates of an “imaginary young girlfriend” and witnesses a “‘yellow lives matter’ march — referring to Aryan blonds — at the Republican National Convention.”

At the book’s end, Bob Honey admits himself to a hospital where he pens a note to the President of the United States — a Trump doppelganger who goes by the name “Mr. Landlord.” In the note, Penn has his character Bob Honey call for an assassination of the president:

Many wonderful American people in pain and rage elected you. Many Russians did too. Your position is an asterisk accepted as literally as your alternative facts

Though the office will remain real, you never were nor will be. A million women so dwarfed your on the streets of Washington and around the world on the day of your piddly inauguration — unprecedented (spelling ok?).

Your gasconade and cache of catchphrases, so limiting and reflexive, escalate the emasculation of you by a world whose patience is in nuclear peril. These sciences and sensibilities are our guns your narcissism neglects.

Weapons your NRA masters are incapable of proffering for profit, and outside your dutiful military’s might, mandate or mission.

So to your attempt to posthumously assassinate our Founding Fathers, and bait and switch your core, I say I will eat where the fish are glowing.

You are not simply a president of impeachment, you are a man in need of an intervention. We are not simply a people in need of an intervention, we are a nation in need of an assassin. I am God’s squared-away man.

I am Bob Honey. That’s who I am. Sir, I challenge you to a duel. Tweet me, b****. I dare you.

In the novel’s epilogue, Penn’s character Bob Honey also blasts the #MeToo movement in a lengthy poem, referring to it as an “i’nfantilizing term of the day.”

“Is this a toddlers’ crusade?” the narrator asks. “Reducing rape, slut-shaming and suffrage to reckless child’s play? A platform for accusation impunity? Due process has lost its sheen?”

“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” will be released on March 27.
