The Hulk, Mark Ruffalo stumps for Bernie Sanders in new ad

Oscar nominated actor and star of Marvel’s Avengers, Mark Ruffalo, continues to add his voice to the 2016 Presidential race, now releasing an ad to endorse Vermont Senator and socialist Bernie Sanders.

“Bernie Sanders comes to us in a moment of crisis of credibility in the American political system,” Ruffalo says in his new ad for Sanders,which was created and first aired ahead of the Wisconsin primary. “People feel like they have given up on the system, and that is exactly what the bad guys want us to do.”

Ruffalo called Wisconsin home before moving to New York where he’s an active liberal voice against fracking, treatment of Islamic terrorists and called for Elizabeth Warren to run for the White house.

During the clip, the Spotlight actor is joined by documentary filmmaker Matthew Cooke and the pair discuss various polls reminding voters of their dislike and mistrust of the Washington establishment, hinting at Hillary Clinton’s inclusion in that typecast.

Ruffalo complains that, when it comes to the country’s 1%-ers: “There’s just no justice.  You break the law, it doesn’t mean anything, You hurt people, it doesn’t mean anything. You steal from people, it doesn’t mean anything.”

The New York primary appears to be leaning towards Clinton with Sanders seeking to get some delegates from the Democratic frontrunner.
