Veteran actor Carl Reiner says his goal is to live until 2020 — in order to vote President TrumpDonald TrumpSacha Baron Cohen calls out 'danger of lies, hate and conspiracies' in Golden Globes speech Sorkin uses Abbie Hoffman quote to condemn Capitol violence: Democracy is 'something you do' Ex-Trump aide Pierson planning run for Congress MORE out of office.

“I’m 96 and a half years old, and I’ve seen a lot of things in my lifetime,” Reiner, of “The Dick Van Dyke Show” and “2000 Year Old Man” fame, says in a video released Tuesday by ATTN:.

“I’ve lived through the Great Depression. I served in World War II in our fight to defeat fascism. I’ve seen the invention of television and performed on television even before my family owned one,” Reiner says in a message delivered straight into the camera.


“But what I’ve never seen is the American people being lied to every single day about everything,” he continues. “Lies about climate change, lies about protecting Medicare and Social Security, lies about Russia attacking our elections, lies about protecting people with pre-existing conditions.”

“In my 96 and a half years, I’ve seen a lot of things, but the one thing I cannot bear to see is America being destroyed by racism, fearmongering and lies,” the Hollywood writer and director says.

“Fortunately, there is something we can do about that. On Nov. 6, we can vote for elected officials who will hold this president accountable,” Reiner tells viewers.

“And after we’ve done that, my personal goal will be to stick around to 2020 and vote to make sure we have a decent, moral, law-abiding citizen in Washington who will make us all proud again to live in America.”

Reiner’s get-out-the-vote push has garnered more than 20,000 retweets on Twitter.
