Luke Skywalker believes President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet and staff choices belong to the dark side.

“If you look at what’s being assembled for our government, it’s like, yikes,” Mark Hamill of “Star Wars” told the Daily Beast in a post published Sunday. “It’s a who’s-who of really despicable people.”

In an interview to promote his series “Pop Culture Quest,” Hamill summoned Skywalker’s fighting spirit by adding: “It’s tempting to say, ‘Well, I’m moving to Canada. I can’t stand it.’ But in other ways, it’s a challenge to stay and defend your country and do what you think is right and not retreat and hide under the covers.”

While Trump’s appointments and nominations have raised general concerns over their lack of experience, certain ones ― some of whom have been accused of spreading racist and homophobic sentiments ― have generated alarm among critics.
