Actor James Van Der Beek criticized Democrats on Memorial Day for the party's decision to not sponsor debates for their election primaries.
The 46-year-old, who has starred in shows such as "Dawson's Creek" and "How I Met Your Mother," posted a viral TikTok video lambasting Democratic office holders for not sponsoring any debates and disrespecting those who are "willing to die to preserve democracy."
"This is not a democracy by the people," Van Der Beek began. "This is a democracy by them. For who? Big banks? Big tech, big pharma, big government big whatever," he asked.
After President Biden announced in April 2023 that he would seek re-election, it was widely reported that the Democratic National Committee would not sponsor any debates. The Washington Post reported that the party said it would support Biden's re-election but that that President faced no serious opposition.
