Many of us know Jeff Daniels from playing one of America’s most beloved idiots in Dumb and Dumber. Turns out he’s also kind of dumb in real life too. Not dumb as in lacking brain cells, just dumb as in he uses those brain cells to make himself look like a self important gas bag. Who apparently has a bone to pick with democracy. So, dumb.
He recently unleashed this anti-Trump rant on Stephen Colbert’s show. It’s cringey. Take a listen.
“We lost, as a country. We lost respect, decency, civilized behavior, integrity, class, accountability, responsibility,” Daniels said. “He’s got none of that shit.” “You look for people to be leaders,” Daniels said of Trump. “This is the opposite of what any country would need, just as far as human beings.”
“Get him out of here, throw him in the back of the truck and take him away,” he added.
Daniels said that officials in the FBI and CIA, as well as members of Congress who are willing to challenge Trump, are “true patriots” who give him “hope.” He also called on GOP congressional leaders to “step up” and put the country before the Republican Party.
“How long can you sit on the Titanic when you can see the iceberg coming?” he said. “This is the country we’re talking about, not your party. And if your party has to go down, then that’s what has to happen.”
The election was a while ago. I find it befuddling that this is still the stuff of people’s rants. The left isn’t just beating a dead horse, they’re strapping a saddle onto its bloated corpse and trotting it around. No wonder they’re losing their marbles (see Stats Show Leftists Are More Likely To Be Mentally Ill. No Surprise There…).
Jeff implies the GOP is to blame. As if the party magically swooped in on the election and carried it away in their scaled clutches. Not so. This isn’t the verifiably rigged Democrat primary we’re talking about here.
Methinks Jeff hasn’t had many conversations with average Americans. You know, the ones who can’t afford to be driven in a Prius to Whole Foods in Beverly Hills, sit back, and enjoy a beer by the store fire pit. While their maids grocery shop for them. Not everyone is living the same life as liberal elitists.
In reality, it’s not just the GOP but an entire chunk of America who disagrees with Daniels’ puffed up Hollywood views. He’s the one who is out of touch. Yet his ego is so inflated, he thinks the only way someone he dislikes could have possibly won is by the GOP miraculously making it so.
The left can’t possibly fathom there are people out there with differing opinions. They also don’t care to understand why people disagree with them. Better to just stay up in their ivory safe spaces and silence everyone who doesn’t vote Democrat.
