Actor Richard Dreyfuss says he made a mistake in voting for Hillary Clinton in 2016, but that didn’t mean he had nice things to say about President Donald Trump.
In an interview Tuesday on Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto, the Oscar-winning actor and star of the new FOX show Shots Fired said he did vote for Clinton “and I regret it.”
“Because Hillary is too much of a bought-and-paid-for Wall Street…” Dreyfuss explained, trailing off.
When asked about tax reform and the president’s proposed defense budget spending increases, Dreyfuss replied by calling Trump an “idiot” who should not have been elected president.
“I think he’s an idiot. I think that Donald Trump is not the one to be trusted about any of the details,” Dreyfuss said, adding that Trump is “something, like with a big funny nose.”
“Donald Trump, regardless of his party, lacks simple common decency and he should not be in the presidency,” the actor said referring to Trump’s rhetoric toward his Republican rivals during the presidential campaign.
It should be noted that Richard Dreyfuss has every right to call Donald Trump an idiot. Trump is only a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. Dreyfuss on the other hand attended the far more prestigious San Fernando Valley State College for almost a year before he dropped out to become a conscientious objector. Not as a battlefield medic but as an orderly. In California. Ghandian-like credentials, n’est-ce pas?
