Marvel Studios Hulk actor Mark Ruffalo once again took aim at President Donald Trump and his supporters claiming “toxic Trumpism” is killing people.
Ruffalo’s comments came on twitter where he shared a political ad created by Project Lincoln.
Ruffalo wrote, “Some Republicans see the writing on the wall. They are delineating themselves from toxic Trumpism.”

The ad was shared to The Lincoln Project’s Twitter feed. It reads, “Welcome to this week. Nearly 90,000 American lives have been lost. The virus is still spreading. And Donald Trump continues to deny and deflect, failing the people he was elected to serve.”

The video features a voice over that states, “Nearly 10,000 more Americans will die. 90,000 deaths and growing. Millions more will file for unemployment. Small businesses are dying. We are not testing enough. It’s still spreading.”
It continues, “Here’s what else is coming this week. He will lie to you over and over. He will tweet instead of lead. He will blame others for his failures. Welcome to this week, and the next week, and the next, and the next until you do something about it.”
The Lincoln Project claims their mission is to “Defeat President Trump and Trumpism at the ballot box.”
Their full mission reads:
“We do not undertake this task lightly nor from ideological preference. Our many policy differences with national Democrats remain. However, the priority for all patriotic Americans must be a shared fidelity to the Constitution and a commitment to defeat those candidates who have abandoned their constitutional oaths, regardless of party. Electing Democrats who support the Constitution over Republicans who do not is a worthy effort.”
The organization includes George Conway, Reed Galen, Jennifer Horn, Mike Madrid, Steve Schmidt, Ron Steslow, John Weaver, and Rick Wilson.
Ruffalo is well known for his political leanings, activism, and dislike for President Trump and his policies.
Back in March 2019 Ruffalo revealed he was teaming up with Michael Moore for a 2020 Blue Deluge.

More recently Ruffalo took issue with protestors wanting to open up the American economy. He questioned, “It makes you wonder what people consider to be good, right, and kind-hearted?”
He added, “What is actually at the soul of America? Is it actually good? Is it ACTUALLY righteous and fair-spirited?”
He answers his questions saying, “This is perverse.”

Ruffalo has also tried to shame President Trump. On Twitter earlier this month he wrote, “Dear Donald Trump, A decent leader would put his attention on those families and loved ones and mark the importance of their grief and loss.”
He added, “You dishonor these Americans by focusing on your past grievances. Be thoughtful. Just a suggestion. Be Presidential.”

In February, Ruffalo spoke to The Independent where he called Donald Trump “public enemy number one.”
Ruffalo stated, “Everything that comes out of his mouth is a lie. This dude is standing in the way of anything significant happening in the world as far as climate change is concerned.”
Maybe more importantly is that Ruffalo’s criticism of President Trump does appear to come from his desire to radically alter the United of States of America. Last December, he called for an economic revolution claiming that “capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future.”
It’s time for an economic revolution. Capitalism today is failing us, killing us, and robbing from our children’s future. https://t.co/OnNm6CYrWK
