The Young and the Restless star Eric Braeden, who portrays Victor Newman, weighed in on Donald Trump's State of the Union address and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's subsequent tearing up the speech when it ended.
Braeden took to social media to give his thoughts about what happened in the Senate. First, the actor shared a tweet where he called out what he sees as hypocrisy over people being upset at Pelosi's actions without condemning Trump's.
His post on Facebook garnered a lot of attention, with 1,400 comments, over 300 shares, and thousands of "likes." The actor immigrated to the U.S. 60 years ago, and he noted that Donald Trump's presidency does not align with the country that he has loved these past six decades.
"I came as an immigrant, with hardly a dollar in my pocket, I have watched many a President, REALLY appreciate this GREAT COUNTRY, worked hard and can discern a bullsh*t artist when I see one! He grew up with a silver spoon and accomplished WHAT? He has bullied every single person who runs or ran against him! The fact that none of the other Republican candidates stood up to him after he leveled one puerile insult after the other against them is a very sad state of affairs for the Party!"
