The awesome actor, Sir Patrick Stewart, is applying for American citizenship.
The topic came up during an interview on The View because they were talking about a tweet Stewart posted while in Washington, D.C.
Had the worst sleep of my life last night. But I was sleeping less than 300 yds from where Donald Trump sleeps. Could there be a connection?

Stewart said this about the tweet:
“And the first night that we were in Washington, I had the worst night’s sleep for years and years and years. And it was only in the morning when I got up and drew the curtains and I realized what it might be. So it was a fairly innocent tweet. I did not directly insult your president.”
Whoopi Goldberg said he’s not her president and asked if we could “give him” to Stewart. Stewart talked about wanting to fight against Trump even though he’s not an American citizen. Then, he said:
“I’m not a [U.S.] citizen. However, there is, maybe it’s the only good thing, as the result of this election: I am now applying for citizenship. Because I want to be an American, too.”
“All of my friends in Washington said, ‘There is one thing you can do. Fight, fight, oppose, oppose.’ ”
We could use a great man like him in the resistance against Drumpf.
