In a fiery post shared Monday on X, formerly Twitter, Hollywood star John Cusack launched a scathing critique of Democrat Party elites.
The 57-year-old actor, best known for iconic roles in films such as “Say Anything” and “High Fidelity,” accused the party of abandoning the working class and “creating the precise conditions for fascism to flourish.”
“They have played a major part in creating the precise conditions for fascism to flourish – Obama corporatist democrats – are to the right of Richard Nixon on domestic policy – Don’t believe me – look it up – and Dems have sold out the working class for decades,” Cusack remarked.
Cusack lambasted the party for allying with the wealthy and shifting away from their foundational principles.
“All your Yale and Harvard buddies will tell you how great and smart you all are – and they are all in bed with all the same big , big money power players- And we run the world – right ? – this kind of staggering amoral bulls— is one of the main reason ( yes there are others ) Trump’s demagoguery works on people. The Democratic elite ARE full of sh-t,” he wrote.
In response, the actor invoked the memory of Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, speculating on his potential disapproval.
“Imagine what FDR would say about such a proposed law?” Cusack added. “To even attempt this … Unbelievable.”
Additionally, the Hollywood actor criticized former President Barack Obama’s famous “hope and change” mantra, labeling it as “another branded hustle.”
Cusack’s criticisms of political figures and parties are no recent development. According to Fox News, the actor has previously been vocal about his disapproval of Trump, urging for his impeachment, especially over the handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We need strikes / and we need to remove Trump from power to save lives,” he posted during Trump’s presidency.
