“Particularly with this orange-headed fellow that’s running us, he’s a nutcase, isn’t he?” he said of Trump.

“[New York Gov. Andrew] Cuomo made a name for himself, he’s put himself on the map certainly. Looking at the globalization of the politicians that are running the world, half the time being run by idiots and the other time by despots, there are very few worthwhile ones, if you know what I mean. No one wants to go into politics. If anyone has half a brain they wouldn’t want to go into politics anyway, right?”

He also spoke about how he’d handle the crisis.

“I’m a war baby, so, in the war years, we had rationing. People could not binge on food, we had ration books with coupons where you were at a limited amount that you could buy. They should do that now because people are buying so much food and then the food is rotting…you must have order and calm.”

Many celebrities have called out Trump for the rhetoric coming out of the White House.
