Leftists meltdown over Trump’s mention of the ‘late, great Hannibal Lecter’

Leftists just don’t get former President Donald Trump and his latest “bizarre” mention of fictional serial killer Hannibal Lecter sent media talking heads into a meltdown.

Another week of sitting silently in court and being threatened with gag orders ended with Trump unleashing on his persecutors, torching Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg as “Fat Alvin” and Judge Juan Merchan as “corrupt” and “highly conflicted” during a massive rally in Wildwood, N.J. on Saturday.

Trump let loose in the fiery speech in which he mentioned the 1991 film, “The Silence of the Lambs,” sparking drama-filled reactions from those like the “Morning Joe” crew on MSNBC on Monday.

“Silence of the Lambs. Has anyone ever seen The Silence of the Lambs? The late, great Hannibal Lecter is a wonderful man. He oftentimes would have a friend for dinner,” Trump mused during the rally speech.

“Remember the last scene? ‘Excuse me. I’m about to have a friend for dinner,’ as this poor doctor walked by. ‘I’m about to have a friend for dinner.’ But Hannibal Lecter. Congratulations. The late, great Hannibal Lecter…”

The presumptive Republican nominee avoided naming jurors and witnesses from the week’s ongoing hush money trial but he had no problem finding the culprit for his “show trial.”

“As you know, I’ve come here from New York, where I’m being forced to endure a Biden show trial — all done by Biden,” Trump said.

Trump also coined a new phrase that resonated with supporters when he called on President Joe Biden to return the donations “of all anti-Semites, American-haters, and financiers of chaos” who are wreaking havoc on college campuses across the country.

“Return the money, Joe,” Trump demanded, firing up the crowd and setting off social media as users echoed the refrain.

“Crooked Joe surrendered to the terrorists just like he surrendered to the Taliban,” Trump told the enthusiastic crowd. “And now he’s surrendering our college campuses to anarchists, jihadists, freaks, and anti-American extremists who are trying to tear down our American flag.”

“The chaos and violence happening on our college campuses right now is all because Crooked Joe Biden doesn’t know what the hell he’s doing,” the former president continued.

“The very same people who are funding the violent campus uprisings are also funding Joe Biden’s campaign,” Trump said. “Those people that you see putting up all that money for all those signs — You know, you can always tell a fake protest when every sign is beautifully made by a printer, all the same color green signs, everything.”

“Tonight, I’m officially calling on Joe Biden and the Democratic National Committee to return the donations of all anti-Semites, American haters, and financiers of chaos who have funded the chaos on our campuses,” Trump stated. “Return the money, Joe.”

The phrase quickly took off on X.

The former president targeted Biden and the recent wave of anti-Israel college chaos.

“When I’m president, we will not allow our colleges to be taken over by violent radicals,” Trump told the mega crowd. “And if you come here from another country and try to bring jihadism or anti-Americanism or anti-Semitism to our campuses, we will immediately deport you. You’ll be out of that school.”

He said Biden is “surrounded by fascists” at the White House who are running a “radicalized” Democratic Party.

“He’s surrounded by fascists around the Oval Office. It’s not him,” Trump added. “He’s not doing a very good at cheating on elections. He doesn’t stand up to our enemies abroad. And he does not stand up to the extremists in his own party, the Democrat Party is becoming radicalized. It’s becoming radical left, and they’re going to lose our country.”
