On Tuesday, when a deadly virus reigns out of control across the country and kills more than a thousand people every day, outgoing President Donald Trump has spent a tremendous amount of time on Twitter to cheer on his admirers.
One of the people Trump retweeted was actor Randy Quaid, who mostly learned late about his arrest, his conspiracy theories –including QAnon– and tries to escape the prominent orders in the U.S. by seeking asylum from Canada. (He now lives in Vermont, with his wife, Evi.)
“The Biden team is now officially in touch with members of the outgoing administration, but Trump still refuses to call himself a ‘outgoing’. He didn’t admit it is #Squattergate’s 21st day and he’s ready to eat his own,” Jimmy Kimmel said late. “He’s not happy with Fox News or some of his Republican comrades. He expressed this displeasure this morning with the retweeting of actor Randy Quaid.”
Yes, Trump retweeted Quaid five times on Tuesday, including one in which he conducted a “re-vote on personal paper only” in some states, and a spoiled video where Quaid is seen up close, a flashing color flashes on his face as he screams, “Fox News’ daytime ratings have COMPLETELY collapsed! Weekend living is even worse. It’s VERY sad to watch it happen, ”before I make a bunch very strange sounds. The accompanying message reads: “TIME TO MANAGE OAN AND NEWSMAX. THE Fox IS DEAD WITH ME! “
“Watch out, kids, Santa’s eating bath salt this year,” Kimmel joked, adding, “Randy Quaid … let’s just say Gary Busey will be like Dr. Fauci.”
– For those who remember Randy Quaidra as Eddie ‘s cousin Vacation films, he also has a long list of performances outside of acting, he continued. “He has been arrested a few times, tried to get asylum in Canada, he believes there is a group called The Hollywood Star Whackers that wants to kill him, and our president has retweeted him five times today.
When I spoke to Quaid’s actor brother, Dennis, earlier this year, he said of Randy, “I miss my brother. I have to love him from afar, but I have that connection with him. I find a lot of social media stuff in myself. I still had to move myself away from it, and I just loved it from afar. I still pray for him. I’m ever one of my favorite actors and I think he might even come back. Really. Great third act.
