The comedy icon is urging voters to use the midterms to hold the "fake president" accountable.

Screen legend Carl Reiner is urging voters to head to the polls for next week’s midterm elections to send a message to President Donald Trump.

The 96-year-old filmmaker/actor/comic/writer ― and frequent Trump critic on Twitter ― said in a clip for ATTN: that Americans were being lied to “every single day about everything.” He added: 

“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, fear-mongering and lies.”
