I’ll clarify the headline just slightly – this is why Leonardo DiCaprio just proved no actors (except Ronald Reagan) should ever hold office.
I think we’re all used to Hollywood hypocrites. Those actors who push for liberal policies like higher taxes, while taking every tax break they possibly can. Those who push for gun control while they’re surrounded by armed guards and producing movies showing more gun violence that occurs in reality.
And lastly, those who preach about climate change while flying around on private jets. Case in point: Leonardo DiCaprio. The latest craziness from the actor who once took an 8,000 mile trip on a private jet to pick up an environmental award? He wants to ban climate “deniers” from holding public office.
Actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio said Monday that those who don’t believe in climate change shouldn’t be permitted to hold public office.
During remarks about his new documentary “Before the Flood” at the White House’s South by South Lawn event celebrating and encouraging innovation, DiCaprio said, “We must empower leaders who not only believe in climate change but are willing to do something about it.”
“The scientific consensus is in and the argument is now over,” DiCaprio said. “If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts or in science or empirical truths and, therefore, in my humble opinion, should not be allowed to hold public office.”
Some interpreted his remarks as a swipe against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has called climate change a “hoax.”
It seems like liberals are all for diversity, so long as that doesn’t include diversity of opinion.

Forget climate “deniers,” I don’t think Hollywood liberals should be able to hold public office. What do you think? Let us know in the comments and share this post on Facebook and Twitter.
