Plenty of celebrities have rallied against Donald Trump this election season, calling out the Republican presidential candidate’s racism, misogyny and lies. 

The latest to speak up about Trump’s campaign is Nick Offerman, who recently spoke to Esquire magazine about the current state of American politics.

“You know,” he said, “we have nobody to blame but ourselves for this election, and I think it’s just fascinating. I mean, I’m not a great political brain, but I definitely have a pretty simple take on politics that involves common decency.”

In terms of voting, the actor said, “It’s usually easy for me to vote because one party usually offends me by being indecent.” And if we had to take a wild guess at who might be the most offensive candidate this election, we think it’s safe to say Trump, who regularly incites violence and once called for a “complete shutdown” of Muslims entering the United States. 

“I’m always amazed in elections when the only flaws that can be pointed out about a candidate are that they have been a politician. You know ― ‘Well they said this in ‘93, and then they said this other thing in 2005.’ Yes, that’s called politics,” Offerman added, before alluding to Trump as being a candidate that’s “held such an unsavory job as casino owner. Not only that, but a failed casino.” 

Come November, the actor is definitely with her. 

“I think unfortunately, for the democratic process, there’s no logical or sane or moral choice to be made other than voting for Hillary Clinton,” he said, pointing out that “if she were not a woman, we would not be in this boat.” 

“I am incredibly excited that the glass ceiling will be shattered,” he said. “We’ve had our first black president and we’ll probably have our first woman president. And of course we’re going to go kicking and screaming as a nation into that, we would have it no other way. At the end of the day, we’re all a bunch of big babies. But what an exciting accomplishment.” 

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
