DUMB AND DUMBER Actor Jeff Daniels Says It’s The ‘End Of Democracy’ If Trump Wins In 2020 (VIDEO)

Actor Jeff Daniels recently appeared on MSNBC, presumably to promote a production of “To Kill a Mockingbird’ he is currently starring in, but couldn’t resist the urge to talk politics.

Like most people in Hollywood, Daniels suffers from Trump Derangement Syndrome and even predicted the end of democracy of Trump wins again in 2020.

Deadline reports:

Jeff Daniels Rips GOP On MSNBC: If Donald Trump Gets Re-Elected, “It’s The End Of Democracy”

Jeff Daniels went on MSNBC’s Deadline: White House in a pre-Tonys roundtable today and basically took the Republican Party to the woodshed. The star of Broadway’s To Kill a Mockingbird harkened back to a previous role — that of cable news anchor Will McAvoy from HBO’s The Newsroom, for which he won an Emmy — as he talked politics, race and the need for the country to dethrone Donald Trump.

Speaking with host Nicolle Wallace and her panel, Daniels first discussed playing the fictional but revered Atticus Finch in the Aaron Sorkin-penned Mockingbird every night. “You walk out there and we pin the ears back of, basically, white America,” he said. “White liberal America comes in, and they go, ‘We had no idea it was that tough.’ It’s a slap in the face; it’s a wake-up call.”

But Daniels was just getting warmed up. He cites a moment in the play when the KKK is coming for Finch and his daughter Scout recognizes one as their neighbor and compares it to when Daniels asked his fellow Michiganders about the 2016 election results and they said, “Yeah, isn’t it great?”

Daniels also wonders if Joe Biden is capable of ‘punching’ Trump in 2020.

AOL News reported:

So of the Democratic candidates, who does Daniels think have the best chance at beating Trump?

“I’m watching intelligence,” he replied. “Politics are a 180 degree swing. That’s part of the eight years of Obama — ‘Let’s go for the whitest guy we can.’” So “to go away from the toddler-in-chief, let’s go to Kamala Harris, let’s go to somebody with a brain in their head, let’s go with someone with some intelligence who doesn’t tweet all day, Mayor Pete [Buttigieg]. I’m looking at intelligence. I love Joe Biden. Is he the guy that can stand up and punch him in the face and win? That’s for you guys to decide.”
