Hollywood actor and director Rob Reiner just embarrassed himself once again by going on yet another conspiracy-filled rant against President Donald Trump on Twitter. This time, he said that he would risk getting COVID-19 just to go to the polls and vote Trump out of office. He then fantasized about putting Trump in prison.
“Destroying the USPS is a violation of Federal Law. Trump is breaking it to steal this election. No one wants to choose between voting and dying. But to put this Racist Criminal behind bars & save our Democracy, I’d go to the poll,” Reiner tweeted to his 1.2 million followers, accusing the president of trying to dismantle the United States Postal Service (USPS) and steal the election.

This came hours after Trump said during a press conference that he opposes additional funding for the USPS because of concerns that it will be used for mail-in voting this November, citing concerns over fraud and mismanagement.
“We want people to vote, but we want people to vote so when they vote it means one vote,” Trump said. “I’m not doing this for any reason. Maybe the other turns out to be my advantage. I don’t know, I can’t tell you that. But I do know this: I just want an accurate vote.”
Trump has reason to be skeptical about mail-in voting, given the fact that the Public Interest Legal Foundation estimated in April that 28 million mail ballots “went missing” over the past ten years.
“Putting the election in the hands of the United States Postal Service would be a catastrophe. Over the recent decade, there were 28 million missing and misdirected ballots,” PILF President and General Counsel J. Christian Adams said.

Perhaps this opportunity for fraud is why Reiner has long been such a champion for mail-in voting, previously saying that it would cause Trump to lose in a “landslide.”
“He’s gotten away with assaulting women, breaking laws, violating the Constitution and letting US die,” Reiner tweeted back in May. “The vote in Nov. is our last chance to hold him accountable. He knows if we’re allowed to vote by mail, he loses in a landslide. We all know what needs to be done.”
