Known for his sometimes controversial political views, actor Sean Penn did not disappoint when it passed on TV Wednesday night accusing former Vice President Dick Cheney and former President George W. Bush of having conceived harmful policies that led to the creation of terrorist groups.
"These are the people, he and President Bush and others, who invented Daesh or Islamic state," said Penn on Wednesday in the television show Late Night With Conan O'Brien.
"I mean, they really are the ones who created it, so I wanted to start a scream. Thank you for that. "Penn also wondered aloud how Cheney, who has had serious health problems in the past, could still be alive when activists like Harvey Milk in San Francisco were killed by the murderous bullets.
"Dick Cheney, is this kind of, you know, soured bacteria of humanity," said Penn. "It's always a surprise to me to remember that through bionic technology and the whole nine yards, this guy is still there."Cheney has had five heart attacks since 1978 and underwent a heart transplant in 2012.
