"My father, @MelBrooks, is 94. He has never made a political video. Until now,” Brooks’s son, Max Brooks, tweeted along with the video of his father. 


The video features Brooks sitting at a table inside while his son and grandson can be seen through a glass window standing outside. 

“They can’t be with me. Why? Because of this coronavirus,” Brooks said. “And Donald Trump’s not doing a damn thing about it.” 

Brooks then endorses Biden, as his son and grandson hold up Biden-Harris campaign signs, saying that “Joe likes facts.” 

“Why do I like Joe? Because Joe likes facts. Because Joe likes science. Joe will keep us going. Take a tip from me, vote for Joe," Mel Brooks said.

His son and grandson then leave and Brooks also leaves to go vote. 

The coronavirus pandemic is projected to be a defining moment of Trump’s presidency, particularly since Trump himself was diagnosed with COVID-19 earlier this month.
