Jeff Daniels on Wednesday resurrected Will McAvoy, his beloved character from “The Newsroom,” to take on the 2016 election, calling presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump a “fact-bending loose cannon” and slamming the media.
In a video produced by Bloomberg Television, Daniels — as McAvoy — tells “With All Due Respect” hosts Mark Halperin and John Heilemann that Trump is not the “best-case scenario” for Clinton.
“He’s not the best-case scenario, John, that’s my answer. Donald Trump is a fact-bending loose cannon who alienates mainstream voters with everything he says. But he gets constant media attention for free. There won’t be a day from now until November when Trump isn’t on every TV channel.”
“Sure, she beats Trump in some categories: like millennials, who don’t even show up to vote. She also leads in number of messages deleted on her personal email server. But that aside, when you ask what makes Trump the best-case scenario for Hillary, I don’t know what the f--- you’re talking about. His tiny hands?”
Interesting video. On the one hand Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy character chastises America for being so slow to elect a female President, and then on the other hand makes the case that Donald Trump will likely prove to be a truly challenging opponent.
Can't say I disagree.
I really miss that show.
