According to the Reuters, Depp again asked: “It is just a question, I’m not insinuating anything… When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” He further added: “Now I want to clarify, I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while, and maybe it’s time.”
The Secret Service said in a statement that, “For security reasons, we cannot discuss specifically nor in general terms the means and methods of how we perform our protective responsibilities.”
