Mark Ruffalo is a hypocrite. He has become wealthy thanks to capitalism and now he is against it. So he doesn’t want other afforded the same opportunity as he.

Anyone else notice it’s only multimillionaires and billionaires who think capitalism doesn’t work.

Per Townhall, Mark Ruffalo is backing Bernie Sanders for President and believes Sanders can easily beat Trump.
“When I look around, they’re all stealing from [Sanders]. I mean, he led this and he’s been doing this his whole life and I just know that guy is who he says he is,” Ruffalo said. “He will fight the fights he says he will fight. I don’t know that about everybody else. He’s the one known quantity and we’re going to need that person for what lays ahead.”
“I know that he has the grit and I know he has this huge infrastructure and the young people dig him. And of course a good part of ‘the Squad’ signed off on him. So, I’m very excited about what he’s doing. He’s already pushed the Democrats to the progressive values he already has and he keeps leading in the field even today. And he’ll beat Trump’s a**,” he added. “No doubt about it.”
