It’s no secret that Rob Lowe, once a Democrat, is now a right-winger. He was even named one of the 50 Most Influential Conservatives in Hollywood by Newsmax.
But he was never an obnoxious ass like James Woods.
Which makes the racist joke he told a bit puzzling. It could be that he realized his folly since the post has now been deleted:

Wow, you nailed that joke like a 16-year-old.

That was just the first reference to Lowe’s infamous sex tape with an underage girl.
For a dude who had sex with a 16 year old, making a racist joke about a politician might not be the wisest choice

Now I see why I haven’t seen you in anything but Atkins diet shake commercials in awhile.

You're better than this, Rob

Um, no he isn’t.
Oh, but there was at least one supporting tweet from a fellow traveler:
