Michael Douglas isn’t up for an Oscar this year, but maybe he should be?
What’s the big deal about pretending to be afraid or overwrought compared to the sheer incredible acting muscles it takes to pretend that Michael Bloomberg, a man with the personality of wet porridge, is the most exciting candidate since JFK.
On Tuesday morning the Academy Award-winning actor officially endorsed Bloomberg in the 2020 election, telling PEOPLE that he “hasn’t been this excited” about a presidential candidate since John F. Kennedy.
“I feel so blessed that in this particularly difficult time that we have one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections,” says Douglas, 75.
Really? Greatest candidates in history?
Greater than George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Pat Paulsen, etc…
This is like trying to sell a Toyota Corolla by calling it one of the most exciting race cars ever invented. No, you suggest that it’s a perfectly sound car to settle for. That’s how you sell Bloomberg. Sure he’s not exciting. And he’ll probably take away your sodas and straws and jobs. But he’ll be very boring. And not exciting at all. A newscast about Bloomberg will be too boring to watch.
Instead Michael Douglas decided to go big and nobody told him to take down a notch.
Also Douglas, who in the Bloomberg video looks like an angry ghost, is an odd choice to endorse anyone. Sure he’s technically a celebrity. But why him? Then again when you’ve got a billion to spend, such technicalities don’t really matter.
Everyone will endorse Bloomberg. All must bow to the Bloomberg. Who is the most exciting candidate since Morris the Cat.
