Michael Douglas says some of Kirk Douglas's 'last words' were backing Bloomberg


Some of   Kirk Douglas ’s last words were a message of support for   Michael Bloomberg ’s presidential campaign, according to the late actor’s son   Michael Douglas .

The “Spartacus” star and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient   died last week at 103 .

At the opening of Bloomberg’s campaign office for his White House bid in Madison, Wis., over the weekend, a day after the elder Douglas’s funeral, Michael Douglas shared some of his father’s “last words” while he was in the hospital.

“Mike [Bloomberg] can get it done,” Douglas quoted his father as saying of the former New York mayor, local alt-weekly Isthmus reported  Sunday.

Douglas told attendees at the campaign office launch that Bloomberg has “a proven record.”

“He has done more as a private citizen and as a mayor than most any congressman or senator [or] elected official. This is a great, great guy,” the “Wall Street” actor continued.

“This is a rare, rare moment. I haven’t felt like this since   John Kennedy  Douglas, 75, said.

Michael Douglas   announced he was backing   Bloomberg’s presidential run last month, lauding him as “one of the greatest candidates in the history of our elections.”

I think when it's all said and done, most of the Hollywood liberals will be with Bloomberg.

It's the proverbial tree falling in the woods. Only, now we have someone who claims to have been there to have heard it. 

Maybe you'd have preferred Nick Fury's moving speech to the would be Avengers, about Couslon's dying dream of the earth's greatest heroes joining forces.

I seriously doubt some of Kirk's last words were “Mike [Bloomberg] can get it done” Michael is just saying that because he's a Bloomberg fan. Mike thinks by saying his dad backed Bloomberg it will get others to back him that otherwise wouldn't.

If Kirk did say "Mike can get it done" he was probably talking to other family members meaning his son Mike could be trusted to make the funeral arrangments in accordance with his wishes.

I guess it depends on what one means by "last words." When you're 103, anything you said in the last year could qualify as "last words."

I hear the coroner was thinking about listing the cause of death as TDS.

You do realize that not wanting Trump for president for a second term does not mean you have TDS.

“Mike can get it done,”

His bed pan needed changing and the nurse was getting ready to do it, but Kirk put his son to work instead. This had nothing to do with the election.
