Patrick Stewart Summed Up All Of His Feelings About Donald Trump In One Hilarious Tweet

Patrick Stewart is simply the best. Between dressing up in drag to promote his fantastic Starz show, Blunt Talk, and possibly starring alongside Hugh Jackman in the R-rated Wolverine 3, the 75-year-old British actor’s career has been (and continues to be) an absolute delight. He’ll always be Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise and the original Professor Charles Xavier for many, but to anyone who follows the thespian’s amazing Twitter account, Stewart is a veritable smorgasbord of subtle quips and hilarious commentary.

Consider his latest tweet, which presumably features a homeless New Orleans man holding a cardboard sign begging for money. Residents of major urban centers are used to seeing such individuals, and if they’re semi-decent people, they’ll help out on occasion. Stewart, however, couldn’t resist quintupling this fine gentleman’s request for $1. Why? Because the skinny Dog the Bounty Hunter doppelganger was threatening to vote for Donald Trump:

Aside from noting that the man’s request was “worth 5 bucks,” Stewart also emphasized just how funny the man’s cardboard sign was. Enough that it “made [him] forget the humidity for a moment.” That’s high marks for a cardboard sign dressed with nine sharpie-written words coming from a Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actor. Maybe this guy deserves a bit more than just a few dollars, no?

Unsurprisingly, Twitter took to Stewart’s post with much fanfare:
