David Spade overwhelmed by haters after saying Obama should have more dignity: ‘Republicans get a bad rap’

Actor David Spade shared that it’s hard to pick political sides working in a mostly Democratic town like Hollywood where “Republicans get a bad rap.”

Appearing on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday, Spade said he stays away from political humor, and finds it “hard to pick such a clear side” in political views, adding that “I don’t know where I fall.”

“I got so much hate,” Spade said, referring to his criticism of Obama in December after the president appeared on “Running Wild,” the television reality show. “A president should have a little more dignity,” Spade had said, adding, “what president does reality shows? It just sounds weird to me, you know what I mean? It’s just too much.”

O’Reilly presented Spade with a list of fellow Saturday Night Live alumni who had become more conservative over the years, remarking that it was “almost like an epidemic.”

“I think like my mom said, ‘when you’re younger you’re Democrat, when you get older you get Republican,'” Spade said. “In the beginning I think you’re saying ‘I want to help the world’ and then when you get older you try to think it through and say ‘I have money, where’s it going.'”

“I don’t think a guy like you is going to vote for Bernie Sanders,” O’Reilly said. “Because you made your money the hard way, you earned it, and you want to give Bernie now 80 percent of your dough?”

“Is it up to 80? I would rather keep it a touch under 85,” Spade joked, adding “I like pieces of everybody and I don’t like that piece of him.”
