(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Actor John Cusack railed against American elites for selling out and making false promises to the country’s working class.
Cusack, a historically deep-blue fixture in Hollywood, posted the rant in a legthy Twitter screed, according to The Blaze.

“They have played a major part in creating the precise conditions for fascism to flourish—Obama corporatist democrats—are to the right of Richard Nixon on domestic policy,” the post read.
“Don’t believe me? Look it up—and Dems have sold out the working class for decades and this kind of bought and paid-for betrayal of principals (sic), fairness, historical precedent, any sense of moral or intellectual honesty,” he continued. “The kind of brutal selfish horrific actions one only does—because they can get away with it.”
Cusack’s post indicated that he was reacting to the news that former Obama solicitor general Neal Katyal, a far-left idealogue himself, had lobbied the Supreme Court to oppose Moore v. United States, which would authorize Congress to tax the inheritances of millionaires and billionaires.
“The former Obama solicited general trying to make a wealth tax illegal—is a perfect reflection of the slide into fascism,” Cusack said.
“The gop has always been with the billionaires and so have many of the modern dems,” he claimed. “[I]f we have fallen so low that we codify putting the oligarchs in a special category—tax free status we have a new realm of permanent elites—it’s lords and serfs sh*t.”
The Say Anything actor went on to call out big-name politicians and their connections with big-money investors.
“All your Yale and Harvard buddies will tell you how great and smart you all are—and they are all in bed with all the same big, big money power players,” Cusack said.
“And we run the world—right?” he continued. “This kind of staggering amoral bulls*** is one of the main reason (yes there are others) Trump’s demagoguery works on people. The Democratic elite ARE full of s***.”
Cusack also claimed that a wealth tax imposed on billionaires could feed and house all Americans.
Twitter users responded to the rant, pointing out that Cusack is also sitting on millions of dollars that he could use to help people.
40% of all taxes collected come from the top 1% of earners.
Also more than half of the US is morbidly obese…no one is going hungry.

Nothing funnier than watching a millionaire complain about billionaire’s.
