Liberal actor-activist Alec Baldwin turned his sights from President Trump this week to specifically target the Republicans’ supporters for swallowing “poison pills of racist hatred.”

The celebrity millionaire took to Twitter this week to excoriate Mr. Trump’s base of support for valuing money over an assortment of toxic behaviors he attributes to the president.

“For all you Trump supporters who have swallowed the poison pills of racist hatred, election fraud, a revolving door of semi-competent or outright awful appointees, the wholesale sexual degradation of women. If the economy tanks, whatcha gonna do? $ is all u care about. So…?” he tweeted Monday.

Mr. Baldwin, whose impression of Mr. Trump became popular with “Saturday Night Live” viewers during the 2016 presidential election, recently said that “flyover Americans” were “fooled” by the billionaire.

“He’s not the host of ‘The Apprentice’ who’s fooled all these flyover Americans that he’s this crack businessman,” the actor told PBS’ “Amanpour & Co.” in April. “We kind of know he’s something else. But even so, when he won, I thought to myself, he’s gonna change. Give it a year, and we’ll see a different Trump, and no. When I say ‘flyover Americans’ I mean — that’s a showbusiness term — in terms of demographics. I don’t mean that in any pejorative sense. But I live in a world where no one watched ‘The Apprentice.’”
