“I feel he should drop out,” David told the New York Times in an interview published Saturday. “He’s too far behind. He can’t get the nomination. And I think, you know, it’s no time to fool around here. Everybody’s got to support Biden.”
David, 72, spoke with Times reporter Maureen Dowd via FaceTime from his home in Pacific Palisades, here in Los Angeles.
“Imagine if he had become president, what would have happened to my life?” David quipped.
In an April 1 exchange with Whoopi Goldberg on The View, Sanders responded to questions about why he hasn’t stepped aside and endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden.
“We are assessing our campaign,” Sanders said.
As for David, with most of the nation sheltering in place because of the coronavirus crisis, the Hollywood veteran said he’s filling his time watching lots of Netflix.
While he’s a fan of Ozark and Unorthodox, he said he couldn’t get into the wildly popular true crime docuseries Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.
“I found it so disturbing,” David explained. “The lions and the tigers just really scared the hell out of me. They were going to attack somebody. They were going to kill somebody. I didn’t want to see them attack and those people were just so insane, I couldn’t watch it.”
