Dave Bautista is one of the film industry's major blockbuster stars at the moment, and he is using his status to speak out about what he likes and doesn't like in the political realm. The former WWE Superstar, who wrestled under the ring name Batista, is now an in-demand actor, appearing in numerous high-profile films, including Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Infinity War, Blade Runner 2049 and Stuber. He's also set to appear in the upcoming family film My Spy, which is slated for an April 17 release that will more than likely be moved on the release calendar due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. While that fact might be bugging Bautista a bit, he seems much more concerned about how President Donald Trump is guiding the U.S. through the crisis.
Through a series of tweets sent over the past few weeks, Bautista has made his feelings towards the POTUS clear and even thrown his support behind one of his political rivals, Bernie Sanders. He's praised Sanders for his recent speeches and actions, all while putting down Trump. He also took aim at some of Trump's recent decisions when it comes to supporting certain states as they deal with the coronavirus pandemic.
Even though it may not make all of his fans happy, Bautista is speaking his mind. Scroll through to see Bautista's latest politically charged remarks.
One of his first remarks was a seconding of Joe BIden's remark against Trump. In the original message, Biden calls out Trumps' "lies, excuses and scapegoats" surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
We've all had too much of Biff's shit! Except the brain dead morons who continue to support him without a logical thought in their minds of why they actually support him. Anyway... don't get me started on President Dumb-Dumb. 🙄 https://t.co/5ZmwQEMjjd— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) March 26, 2020

Just to clarify @realDonaldTrump .. the Gov of Washington is asking the fed govt for help but you wont return his calls because he's unappreciative of your efforts?So basically fuck every American citizen in Washington because the Gov. hurt your feelings? #WartimePresident #GTFOH— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) March 28, 2020
