Mark Hamill calls Donald Trump's Cabinet picks A who's who of really despicable people

Mark Hamill,  known for his portrayal of Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy, told the Daily Beast.."…. If you look at what's being assembled for our government its like, yikes." Its a who's who of really despicable people."

Trump has filled his cabinet with a team of fascists: that include white supremacists, war criminals, climate deniers and religious fanatics. 

Chief White House strategist Steve Bannoncompared himself to a Star War villain, saying to the Hollywood Reporter, "Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power."

Hamill urged people not to despair and not retreat. 

He said it's tempting to say "Well I'm moving to Canada, I can't stand it. But in other ways its a challenge to stay and defend your country and do what you think is right and not retreat and hide under the covers. It's not going to be easy that's for sure."

A salute to Mark Hamill for speaking out! 

Needed now, more Luke Skywalkers and a growing rebel alliance that becomes capable of bringing down the empire.
