Martin Sheen says he’s “disgusted” by President Trump in a new Democratic fundraising pitch.
The “West Wing” actor, who played fictional President Josiah Bartlet on the long-running NBC political drama, slams the GOP in a Wednesday email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC).
“My time playing the president on ‘The West Wing’ taught me what Washington should be like,” Sheen says in the fundraising email paid for by the DCCC.
“And right now, with the Republicans in control, it’s far from what we, as Americans, deserve,” writes the 76-year-old actor, who appeared in an anti-Trump, get-out-the-vote ad in 2016. Sheen says he’s “disgusted” not only by Trump, but also by “the Republicans kowtowing to their rich special interests instead of representing the American people.”
