Mark Levin rips ‘The Rock’ for Biden endorsement: ‘Self-righteous egomaniac’
Fox News host Mark Levin ripped Dwayne Johnson for his endorsement of Democratic nominee Joe Biden, calling the WWE star known as “The Rock” a “self-righteous egomaniac” and Biden “a mentally incapacitated lifetime political hack.”
The “Fast & Furious” star endorsed Biden over the weekend, marking the first time the 48-year-old has endorsed any candidate.
“Self-righteous egomaniac. And why should we care who another actor endorses? What a surprise, he endorses the Democrats,” Levin wrote to his more than 2.4 million followers.
“Well, then, let’s stop thinking for ourselves, no longer worry about the Republic, vote for a mentally incapacitated lifetime political hack, because ‘the Rock’ is stupid enough to do so. Uh, no,” Levin added.
Most celebrities have come out with their support for Biden, with few endorsing Trump.
The exceptions for the president include actor Jon Voight.
Johnson, a former professional level and college football player at the University of Miami, said supporting Biden is “critical” to the country’s future.
“I’ve got friends in all parties, but the one thing we can always agree on is the conversation and the dialogue, and where that conversation lands is always the most critical part,” Johnson said in a video he tweeted Sunday.
He also revealed he recently had a conversation with Biden’s running mate Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). “I thought it was a great and extremely productive conversation that we had, and as a registered Independent for years now with centrist ideologies, I do feel that Vice President Biden and Sen. Harris are the best choice to lead our country, and I am endorsing them to become president and vice president of our United States.”
In key battleground states that include Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida and Arizona, Biden leads Trump in the RealClearPolitics index of major polls by an average of 3.7 points.
