Note: This video ends with a swear word. Headphones at work.

The star of the immensely popular angels-and-devils CW show Supernatural, Misha Collins, posted this video to his Facebook page today. Misha plays an angel named Castiel, and if you don't watch, that's fine -- you don't need to know much more than that.

Just don't tell my 13 year old daughter or her Instagram feed I said that. She "can't even" [tween speak for 'is very passionate'] when it comes to Supernatural, the TV show.


But back to the political angle of this story.

Collins attended a Trump rally, somewhat in disguise. If someone was a fan of the show, they would know it was him; he told them his name was Misha. He carried his phone cam and interviewed people at the rally.

What he found would not be a surprise to anyone who reads C&L on a regular basis. Anti-immigrant, pro-torture, pro-White Supremacy, and aggrieved. That's who Misha Collins found at this rally, and he doesn't mince words about his opinion of this candidate and what he represents:

I am certainly going to actively oppose Donald Trump's candidacy, and I would encourage you not be apathetic. Don't be complacent. Get out there, and make sure that...something...[scoffs] make sure that we don't end up with this f*ckhead in our White House.

The reason I'm posting this is to illustrate that bit by bit the understanding that Trump represents not just a political novelty act, but a truly dangerous insanity and fascism, is leaking outside of the liberal blogosphere into places we might not expect. Like the fangirl Facebook and Instagram pages of a CW celebrity. Trust me when I say, this is a very bad day for the Trump campaign.

Really Hair Drumpf. Their angel just called you a f*ckhead.
