Actor Jeff Daniels said that Donald Trump’s re-election in 2020 would mean the “end of democracy” during an appearance Monday on MSNBC.
Daniels, who is starring on Broadway as Atticus Finch in Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird, stopped by Deadline: White House to share his thoughts on the political climate. Like host Nicolle Wallace and most of the show’s guests, Daniels is vehemently anti-Trump and challenged midwestern voters who chose Trump in 2016 to consider if they were for values like decency and respect.
The article goes on to state the following:
“If the big gamble is to go all the way to November 2020, which I agree, and lose? It’s the end of democracy,” he said.
“At the end of the day,” Daniels said, “this is about the Republican Party, or a wing of it, going this is our last chance to save the party, and if we don’t, it’s the end of the Republican Party.”
Daniels said Republicans need to be “heroic, because democracy is at stake.”
Many responses to the comments on Twitter were critical of Daniels’ statement, incuding at least one who pointed out that Daniels was a character in the movie “Dumb and Dumber” movies. See examples below the video.
There’s a reason he’s best know as “Dumber”

An actor being over-dramatic. Shocking

Good thing we live in a constitutional republic.

As I recall Jeff Daniels once played the part of a politician on TV. Is that why he is given a national forum to express his political views and, presumably, why we are supposed to care what he thinks?

Oh, I see. If YOUR side doesn’t win it’s the end of democracy is what you really mean.

Not really, Jeff, since democracy will re-elect President Trump.
