Despite being on the left, Sarandon has never been afraid to call out Democratic lawmakers when they don’t comply. Earlier this year, he rang against President Joe Biden and other Democrats when they failed to deliver on their campaign promises to award $ 2,000 stimulus checks to Americans affected by COVID-19.
“Where are the $ 2K checks you promised?” Sarandon tweeted in February. “If voters feel like Democrats are taking the bait and changing, don’t be surprised when they don’t show up in 2022 or 2024.”
