The decade's most triggering comedy
“They have played a major part in creating the precise conditions for fascism to flourish — Obama corporatist democrats — are to the right of Richard Nixon on domestic policy — Don’t believe me — look it up — and Dems have sold out the working class for decades — and this kind of bought and paid-for betrayal of principals [sic], fairness — historical precedent — any sense of moral or intellectual honesty — The kind of brutal selfish horrific actions one only does — because they can get away with it,” Cusack wrote on Monday.
The actor argued that these “elites” are to blame for Donald Trump coming to power.
“All your Yale and Harvard buddies will tell you how great and smart you all are — and they are all in bed with all the same big , big money power players — And we run the world —right ? — this kind of staggering amoral bulls*** is one of the main reason ( yes there are others ) Trump’s demagoguery works on people. The Democratic elite ARE full of s***,” he continued.
Cusack was responding to an article from Jacobin Magazine about some Democrats wanting to outlaw federal wealth taxes.
“Imagine what FDR would say about such a proposed law ?! Don’t worry fellas — the Democrats will save the .ooooooo1 % from paying tax — the hubris to do this — is staggering — it’s a sham and an insult to everyone’s basic intelligence — the contempt for people — To even attempt this … Unbelievable,” Cusack fumed.
He concluded by calling former President Barack Obama’s “hope and change” messaging just “another branded hustle.”
The “Say Anything” actor has used X for his rants before. He reacted strongly when Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said that he and Elon Musk “broke the internet” when his 2024 presidential campaign announcement in May experienced technical difficulties on Twitter Spaces.
“So a nazi collecting Texan freak billionaire who has a garden of evil statues to scare his grandkids — has bought himself a Supreme Court judge — and that feisty, white supremisct [sic], ever competitive, not to be out Douche-bagged Egor Mush decides — I must buy myself a president!” Cusack wrote.
“And so a whisky balled toad of a man A fascist trump mini me has literally the worst presidential announcement since mid 80s Lyndon LaRouche on a social media platform Mush is obliterating in real time — turning into a Nazi website where children look up pet snuff films — cats in blenders — and he’s so vain and so dumb and so incompetent that he can’t handle the bandwidth for a glorified conference call — and everything I just said is just reportage,” the actor went on.
Critics were confused and amused by Cusack’s rambling, with one person replying, “Who broke John Cusack?”
