Hollywood elites were triggered following President Donald Trump’s acceptance speech Thursday and perhaps none more so than actor and comedian Jim Gaffigan, who experienced a nuclear-grade meltdown on the final day of the Republican National Convention.

The comedian fired off more than 15 five-alarm tweets in which he railed against the commander in chief as a “con man” and “rapist.” He also sounded off on the subjects of cancel culture, Trump Derangement Syndrome, and virtue signaling.

Jim Gaffigan, whose comedy special The Pale Tourist recently debuted on Amazon Prime Video, warned of an economic apocalypse if President Trump wins re-election in November, adding that a Trump victory will mean that it’s all “over.”

“To those of you who think Im destroying my career wake up. if trump gets elected, the economy will never come back,” he said in an epic tweetstorm.

“You know if Trump gets re-elected it’s over. How many books have to be written?” he added.

Jim Gaffigan began his tirade late Thursday night. “Look Trumpers I get it. As a kid I was a cubs fan and I know you stick by your team no matter what but he’s a traitor and a con man who doesn’t care about you,” he tweeted. “Deep down you know it. I’m sure you enjoy pissing people off but you know Trump is a liar and a criminal.”

Look Trumpers I get it. As a kid I was a cubs fan and I know you stick by your team no matter what but he's a traitor and a con man who doesn't care about you. Deep down you know it. I'm sure you enjoy pissing people off but you know Trump is a liar and a criminal.

He then fired off 15 more tweets before calling it a night.

By the way you can't be against Cancel Culture and tell people to stay out of politics. You know that time you did a job and didn't get paid? That's trump and you know it.

I know you hate snobs and elites I get it but look at Ivana and that douche bag Jerod. Think they are on your side? Do you think they've ever done a real days work in their lives. Wake up

You know he lies. Constantly. Yet you dont care? What because he insults people that make you and me feel dumb?

In his most incendiary tweet, Gaffigan accused President Trump of being a “rapist.” The comedian also attacked retired football coach Lou Holtz, who gave his support to the president during the convention.

Fuck Lou Holtz. Biden is Catholic in name only? Compared to who? How many abortions did trump pay for? How many women has he raped? How many times did pull the shit he did in Ukraine. Wake up. He's a crook and a con man.

— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) August 28, 2020

What bravery from the cowards who are against equal justice. Wake up. Don't you know history will make you the fool.

At another point, Gaffigan insisted that he wasn’t part of the “Hollywood” crowd, despite having a new show with Amazon Studios and having had his own sitcom, The Jim Gaffigan Show, on the ViacomCBS-owned TV Land.

can we stop with this HOLLYWOOD shit. I'm not from Hollywood and Hollywood is just a town. Please say coastal elites (which Trump, Jared and Ivana are) Maybe people on the east and west coasts have different values from yours but they dont like liars and con men like trump. https://t.co/F9A12uG2TI

Please dont buy that socialist crap either. Obviously Obama wasn't a socialist. This is all lies to scare you and you know it. Biden is not radical. Are you serious?

— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) August 28, 2020

Remember everything Trump accuses the Democrats of he's guilt of. Dont let the socialist name calling distract you from the fact he is a fascist who has no belief in law.

— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) August 28, 2020

You know Trump just creates enemies. You know you can't trust him. You know he been incompetent during this crisis. You know all those people didn't need to die. Trump talks about the Space Program and you can't safely go to a movie. Wake up

— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) August 28, 2020

Trump budding up with dictators is RADICAL. Trump having interfering with the justice department is RADICAL. Trump pandering to the police and army (I gave 3 raises) is RADICAL.

— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) August 28, 2020

I dont give a fuck if anyone thinks this is virtue signaling or whatever. We need to wake up. We need to call trump the con man and thief that he is.

— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) August 28, 2020

Trump derangement syndrome is part of the con. Wake up. you know Fox News is biased and full of loons. it's how they gaslight and silence criticism. Do you think any of those congressional republicans really believe in Trump or do they fear him dont want to end up like Flake.

— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) August 28, 2020

Trump literally ran Paul Ryan out of politics. Why? Paul Ryan knew Trump was poison. So does Romney. Trump is not a conservative or even a Republican. You know that. You know Barr is dirty. You know if Trump gets re-elected it's over. How many books have to be written?

— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) August 28, 2020

Before signing off, Gaffigan denied the existence of the Deep State and “Trump Derangement Syndrome,” saying the latter is just a distraction from “the con of Don.”

Heading to bed but remember – If you want to sound crazy please tell me about THE DEEP STATE. – To sound stupid please be against CANCEL CULTURE but then accuse anyone with an opinion of Virtue signaling.– Trump Derangement Syndrome is meant to distract from the con of Don
