If you’ve wondered how actor Michael Rapaport feels about the 2020 election, wonder no longer. In a profanity-filled video Rapaport posted to his Twitter account on Wednesday, Rapaport lets loose in a verbal takedown of President Trump.

The video captures Rapaport walking around a neighborhood and freestyling on the 2020 election. Rapaport appears to be addressing Trump directly in the video, which starts with him bellowing, “Good, good, I say, recount, stop the count, triple count … it’s over, fucko! You lost!”

Commenting on the vote count in Arizona, where Democratic candidate Joe Biden held a narrow lead heading into Thursday, Rapaport said, “You fucking lost! The fucking ghost of John McCain bit you right in your fat fucking ass in Arizona. Good!”

He assessed, “You fucking asshole, your big fucking mouth came back to fuck you.”

Rapaport then moved onto another swing state, Michigan, called for Biden by a number of news outlets on Wednesday. “You don’t want to back the governor of Michigan, when there’s a plot to kidnap her? Good! Pack your fucking shit!”

Rapaport was referring to the October arrest of six men who were scheming to kidnap Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-Mich.), and Trump’s relatively ambivalent reaction to the plot.

He then quickly moved to the battleground state of Pennsylvania, observing, “You’re gonna lose Pennsylvania. The Ghost of Daryl Fucking Dawkins, the Broad Street Bullies … you’re fucking done in Philadelphia.”

(Here, Rapaport referred to the late NBA star best known for his stint with the Philadelphia 76ers, as well as the legendary 1970s edition of the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers.)

The video closes with Rapaport admonishing Trump to get his “fucking flunkies” out of the White House, including his sons and daughter. The TikTok version of the video cuts off at the one-minute mark, in the midst of Rapaport making an unsavory reference to son-in-law and presidential advisor Jared Kushner. (The Twitter version goes on for another 30 seconds.)

A number of Twitter users reveled in the rant.

The video was also shared to TikTok users courtesy of Perez Hilton.

As of Thursday afternoon, the outcome of the election was still in question, with no indication that Trump heeded Rapaport’s counsel.
