Actor Rob Reiner, made famous for his portrayal as Meathead in the 70s sitcom “All in the Family,” is being criticized from all sides for calling all Trump voters racist. He also accused “white evangelicals” of being in league with Vladimir Putin.
“Every elected Republican knows that this President is guilty of countless Impeachable offenses,” Reiner wrote. “But they, along with many White Evangelicals & White Supremacists have made a pact with Putin. But unlike a pact with the Devil, this one can be unsigned.”

Reiner, 72, now almost exclusively uses his Twitter and other social media to attack President Trump, his administration and 63 million supporters across the nation who voted Republican in 2016. On Friday, the notoriously grumpy and politically radical activist jumped onto Twitter to once again call for Trump’s impeachment and removal from office.
In July, Reiner said “The President of the United States is a racist. He’s made it abundantly clear his re-election is based on white nationalism. If you support him, there can be no distinction between you being a racist and a racist enabler. They are the same.”
Just a day before belting out his “pact with Putin” tweet, Reiner addressed his social media followers, saying “Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. Now back to Impeaching and Removing the most Criminally Corrupt President in US History.”
Reiner may not expected the negative feedback form his own liberal allies who joined with many conservatives who called the statements beyond belief.
Following his latest tweet, those who disagreed with the former actor responded with jabs of their own.
Rob, you have totally lost it.

Despite the jabs from both the left and the right, Reiner doubled down calling Trump “the most Criminally Corrupt President in US History.”
On MSNBC in 2018, Reiner stated “[W]e are in it right now, it might be the last stage of a civil war. The last battle is being fought. Hopefully, it won’t be fought physically, but we are more divided than we ever have been and we’ve got a president who is backed up by [conservative] media.” His reference to conservative media came after he criticized Fox News.
He pulls no punches when it comes to sharing his opinion of Trump and his supporters, having called the president an “ill sociopath” and “mentally unstable” in the past.
