Mark Hamill Returns as the Joker to Mock Donald Trump's Tweets [Updated]

Earlier this month, Star Wars star Mark Hamill surprised Batman fans (and Donald Trump critics) with a late Christmas present when he recorded one of the President-elect’s tweets as the Joker, a character he’s voiced for almost 25 years.


The result was oddly fitting New Year’s message from the Clown Prince of Crime himself—a performance Hamill followed up on this weekend with a new missive from “the Trumpster.”

“Am I the ONLY one man enough to confront this #OverratedFlunkyLoser without resorting to an ad hominem assault?” wrote Hamill on Twitter, tongue firmly in cheek.

This time around, the voice acting veteran channeled Mr. J to unleash his ire on Meryl Streep, who he (like our future commander-in-chief) apparently believes to be “one of the most overrated actresses in Hollywood.”


Just like last time, the end product is a performance that would be hilarious if it weren’t so terrifying, which, come to think of it, is another quality the Joker and our next President share.

Update: Hamill reprised his Joker role again to mock Trump’s tweets against Representative John Lewis, after the congressman revealed he doubted the legitimacy of Trump’s election. A fitting way to showcase how shitty it is to mock a civil rights leader during Martin Luther King Jr. weekend. Hamill could seriously turn these posts into a part-time career at this point. But for now, it’s simply a public service.
