If you blink then you’ll miss how much the Democratic Party is unraveling before our very eyes. The Democratic Primaries are underway and the feuding between the presidential hopefuls has been pure entertainment over the last few months.
Hollywood celebrities are beginning to endorse their preferred candidate and some of them have been surprising.
And it was certainly surprising to see Michael J. Fox just blast Sen. Bernie Sanders in the most epic way you can imagine.
Michael J. Fox’s performance in “Back to the Future” might be the best example of the perfect comedic tone. You may not know this, but Fox was not the first choice for Marty McFly.
It was Eric Stoltz who shot about 6 weeks worth of footage before director Robert Zemeckis pulled the plug and recast the character, much to the studio’s chagrin.
From there, Fox’s career exploded. He became the “it” guy for years until he was tragically diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in the early 1990’s.
He still continued to act every once in a while, but it was clear that the Parkinson’s Disease had become more advanced in the coming years, forcing him to largely give it up for good.
Fox is absolutely a Democrat, which should come as no surprise to you. Fox has officially endorsed South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg for president over the other Democratic candidates.
His Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research has been lobbying for stem cell research to help improve the lifestyle of those that have the disease, but it goes without saying why that’s highly controversial.
In fact, Fox campaigned for Buttigieg in New Hampshire ahead of the Democratic Primary and told the crowd he was tired of candidates “screaming” at him.
He said to the crowd, “I was watching the debate last night, and it occurred to me, I love all the Democratic nominees and I have respect for all of them, but they’re all yelling at me.”
But Fox singled out Sen. Bernie Sanders specifically.
Fox added, “I’m sitting there going, ‘Why are you yelling at me, Bernie, what did I do to you?’ all screaming, but Pete isn’t screaming, he’s just talking to me.”
There does seem to be and underlying “urgency” amongst the Democratic candidates to beat President Trump and most of them yell at each other because they all feel it’s the end of the world if he wins in November. They say to each other frequently that they’ll support whoever the nominee is because defeating Trump is of the utmost importance.
They must be terrified of the outstanding economy and the all-time low unemployment numbers.
Fox added to his admiration for Buttigieg by saying, “I was leaving, I was at the airport, and I noticed this guy standing by waiting for his car and he was kind of hidden away, kind of around a corner, smoking a cigarette if I can tell the truth, and it was the senator from Illinois, it was Barack Obama.”
And then he said, “I felt the same way when I saw Pete.”
“Saturday Night Live” joked about this on last week’s episode that Buttigieg is the “white Obama.” That even trended on Twitter that night when the sketch aired.
Sen. Sanders supporters are as equally aggressive about only supporting him than any of the other candidates just like they were in 2016. In fact, many of them voted for Donald Trump because they despised Hillary Clinton so much.
The Democratic Party is so divided right now and it’s definitely entertaining to watch.
