• A-LIST DUMMY: Sean Penn Blames Bush & Cheney For ISIS

    Two time Academy Award winning actor Sean Penn stopped by TBS’s “Conan” Wednesday night to promote his new film, “The Gunman,” and of course the outspoken liberal actor had to come to Obama’s rescue.

    Penn was quick to blame former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Dick Cheney for creating ISIS.


    “These are the guys, he and President Bush and some others, who invented Daesh, or ISIS,” Penn said, using the Arabic name for the terror group. “I mean, they really are that which created it, and so I wanted to give him a shout-out. Thanks for that,” the noted international relations expert added.

    In reality, the power vacuum Barack Obama’s administration intentionally left in Iraq by prematurely pulling U.S. troops from the ground without a “Status of Forces” agreement is probably the primary reason why ISIS exists today.

    Penn then went on to praise former liberal Congressman Harvey Milk, whom Penn portrayed in the 2009 film “Milk.”

    “We have people like Harvey Milk, who were beautiful, brilliant, impactful guys, and, you know — it’s just no good deed goes unpunished, and then you’ve got the Cheneys. This is just me musing.”

    The A-list dummy also decided to praise the rescinded American embargo on Cuba.

    “There’s certainly going to be real change in Cuba…Separate and apart from the Castros, I think, as you saw, the Cuban people have incredible spirit and incredible intelligence and are very bright. Among the positive things the revolution brought are literacy.  I think it’s going to be a very exciting change in what they can bring to us culturally.”

    I think that in 30 years, liberals will STILL be blaming Bush for all of their woes. It’s Ridiculous.
