“Pneumonia?” he tweeted Monday. “I’d vote for Dead Hillary in this race. She could be Patient Zero for Bubonic Plague, still better than #TangerineNightmare.”

“I’m nervous with this election,” he told the crowd. “I saw the headline today: ‘Race tightening, Trump ahead in Ohio and Florida.'” (RELATED: Bryan Cranston: ‘I Believe Donald Trump Loves This Country’)
