Michael J. Fox criticized President TrumpDonald TrumpTrump lawyers to Supreme Court: Jan. 6 committee 'will not be harmed by delay' Two House Democrats announce they won't seek reelection DiCaprio on climate change: 'Vote for people that are sane' MORE in a recent interview, saying he thinks the president has played on “every worst instinct in mankind.”
“Every worst instinct in mankind has been played on [by Trump], and for me that’s just anathema. Biff is president!” he said in a broad interview with The Guardian published this past weekend.
"Biff" is the bullying villain from the “Back to the Future” franchise, in which Fox starred as Marty McFly.
In 2015, screenwriter Bob Gale, who helped create "Back to the Future Part II," said the character of Biff was also loosely based on Trump, who, in the years prior to his presidency, had garnered fame as a real estate mogul and reality television star.
Fox, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 1991, was also pressed for his thoughts on the viral moment from 2016 in which Trump, a Republican presidential candidate at the time, appeared to mock a New York Times reporter who has a disability.
“When you see your particular group mocked, it’s such a gut punch,” he told the outlet. “It’s so senseless and cheap.”
“There’s no way I get up in the morning and mock orange people,” he also said in a swipe at Trump.
The recent comments add to a list of remarks Fox has made taking aim at the president over the years.

“That's what the J stands for,” he joked at the time, referring to the president’s middle name.
He was also one of a number of Hollywood stars to attend an anti-Trump protest held in place of the United Talent Agency’s regular pre-Oscars party a month after the president’s inauguration in 2017.
