[Ed. – If so, kind of sad. He enjoyed a long and illustrious carer as a screen actor. His last words before shuffling off this mortal coil were nothing more profound than a political endorsement?]
Actor Michael Douglas voiced his support for Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg, telling the former New York mayor’s supporters in Wisconsin that some of his late father Kirk’s last words were, “Mike can get it done,” according to reports.
A day after burying his 103-year-old father, Douglas, 75, was in Madison on Saturday for the opening of the Bloomberg campaign’s second office in the state.
When Bloomberg announced he was running for president on Nov. 24, Douglas said, his dad was excited about his prospects.
“I don’t know if he was pulling my leg or not, but one of the last words that he said in the hospital, when he came and he saw me, asked me to lean over close to him, and I leaned over close to him and he said, ‘Mike can get it done,’” Douglas told attendees about his dad, WKOW reported.
