During his acceptance speech, Robert - who has been extremely vocal about not like President Trump – called out the “dire” political climate the country is currently in.

“There’s right and there’s wrong, there’s common sense and there’s abuse of power. As a citizen, I have the right to voice my opinion.” Robert said. “If I have a bigger voice because of my situation, I am going to use it whenever I see a blatant misuse of power…That’s all I’m going to say about that tonight.”
