Rob Reiner’s 96-year-old Dad has a message.
My father is 96 and a half years old. In his long life he has never seen anything like what’s happening to our country. I love him. And I want the country he fought his whole life for. pic.twitter.com/ZeTPTKTS2u

I’m Carl Reiner, and I’m 96 and a half years old and I’ve seen a lot of things in my lifetime. I live through the great depression, I served in World War II and our fight to defeat fascism. I’ve seen the invention of television and performed on television even before my family owned one.
But what I’ve never seen is the American people being lied to every single day. About everything! Lies about climate change. Lies about protecting Medicare and Social Security. Lies about Russia attacking our election. Lies about protecting people with pre-existing condition. *Sighs*
In my 96 and a half years I’ve seen a lot of things but the one thing I cannot bear to see is America being destroyed by racism, fearmongering and lies! Fortunately, there is something we can vote do about that. On November 6 we can vote for elected officials who will hold this president accountable. On November 6, we can vote
And after we’ve done that, my personal goal is to stick around until 2020 and vote to make sure that we have a decent, moral, law-abiding citizen in Washington who will make us all proud again to live in America.
On November 6, Vote!
Of course, reading the words is not as moving as actually hearing him say them. He did an amazing job.
We love his message. We hope he makes it at the very least to 2020. Thank you, Sir.
