Joss Whedon pulled out all the stops to get out the vote for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton ahead of Election Day, but to no avail — and now the writer-director says Republican President-elect Donald Trump “cannot” be allowed to serve even his first term in office.
“This is simple,” the 52-year-old Avengers director wrote on Twitter Monday. “Trump cannot CANNOT be a allowed a term in office. It’s not about 2018. It’s about RIGHT NOW.”
Whedon — who only recently returned to Twitter after having deleted his account last year following feminist backlash against his Avengers sequel — has spent the days since the election challenging Trump on social media.
“Letting [T]rump take office means burying democracy. Letting him take it without the popular vote means burying it alive,” the director wrote on Sunday.
