Steve Buscemi told Trump to “Shut the fuck up, Donny” at the Women’s March

The Big Lebowski

Given the massive number of people who walked in the Women’s March yesterday, showing solidarity for women’s rights and opposition to the actions and attitudes of President Donald Trump, it’s not surprising that some of those folks were famous. But while we’re all in favor of Scarlett Johansson, Michael Moore, and Madonna giving speeches in which they repeatedly say “Fuck” live on CNN, few of those celebrities—barring Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist and her amazing “Pussy Of Steel” sign—managed to combine message and messenger as well as this shot of Steve Buscemi that’s making the rounds today.


The photo shows the Big Lebowski star standing next to a protest sign containing a quote repurposed from the Coen brothers classic, the one about how Donny—all Donnies, possibly—need to shut the fuck up. (They’re also out of their element.) Given that he’s smiling and posing with the guy holding the sign, it looks like Buscemi agrees with the sentiment, despite how poorly it ended for him and his character in the film.

Tomorrow, of course, we can all expect the Trump White House to declare Buscemi’s presence in the photo ”fake news,” and offer up the alternative facts that he was actually sleeping in his home at the time that this photo was taken. In the meantime, though, let’s relax to the sound of John Goodman telling the Donalds of the world whether it’s okay for them to speak.
