Actor Ben Stein mocked ‘Ferris Bueller’s’ call for Devin Nunes to return to Congress
Actor Deadpan Ben Stein was mocked on Twitter on Sunday after tapping into the character he played in the iconic 1986 film ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off’ to beg Devin Nunes to return to Congress – because he says the “truth”.
In his plea for Nunes to return, Stein reprized his role as the massively ineffective and selfless teacher at the fictional suburban Chicago school of Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) as he repeatedly asks his class who very annoying if “anyone … anyone” can answer his questions on economics.
“Nunes…Nunes,” Stein begins on his video posted to Twitter. “We have to have Nunes here because there has to be at least one person telling the truth. Nunes, please come back, wherever you are. We need someone who’s gonna tell the truth,” he adds, finally moaning Nunes’ name.
Stein was once a speechwriter for former presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, and writes political commentary, including eulogies for Trump.
He called Trump a “peacemaker” who “has done great things”, adding: “I pray that he comes back in 2024”. He called Trump’s policies “old-fashioned republicanism.”
