Sam Elliott has seriously divided Twitter after his ad for Joe Biden aired...
During the presidential election, we've seen many famous faces weigh into politics.
via: Getty ImagesFrom urging people to vote to publicly endorsing candidates, many of our favorite celebs have been getting vocal about politics.
And the latest celeb to speak out?
via: Getty Images...Sam Elliott.
Viewers of the first game of the Major League Baseball World Series on Tuesday were greeted with an ad featuring Elliott.
via: Getty ImagesAlthough, this wasn't for his latest blockbuster flick, but for Joe Biden.
Before the game had even finished, Twitter exploded with reactions to the controversial ad.
via: Getty ImagesAnd it's left people seriously divided.
Now, we are mere weeks away from the highly anticipated presidential election...
via: GettySo, of course, Trump is trying to salvage the little reputation he has left.
Because, as you will all be aware...
via: GettyIt seems that he has some serious competition from his Democratic rival, Joe Biden - although Trump probably wouldn't admit that himself.
Of course, the election couldn't have fallen on a worse year...
via: GettyBut it has been powering on ahead... despite many major setbacks.
Trump's presidential campaign seems to be hitting rocks...And things took an ultimate turn for the worst when at the start of October, the president and the first lady, Melania, tested positive for COVID-19. Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together and that they felt fine, but after just a few days, he was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Centre.
Despite the huge worry surrounding Trump's health...
via: GettyHe was discharged just a few days later and insisted to the nation that all we need to do is to "learn to live with COVID", which was very concerning to hear.
In the days following his diagnosis, Trump continued to insist on how he was "feeling better than ever."
via: GettyBut when Joe Biden proposed making the next presidential debate a virtual one in the interest of health and safety, Trump put his foot down.
FYI, this wasn't just Biden's idea.
via: GettyThe Commission on Presidential Debates announced that the October 15th town hall-style debate in Miami would take place virtually as health experts raised concerns about whether it would be safe to hold the event in person given Trump is still recovering from COVID-19.
The virtual debate that was scheduled to go ahead on the 15th of October was officially canceled due to Trump's refusal.
via: GettyFor some reason, the proposition of a virtual debate infuriated the president and he boldly said he "wouldn't waste his time" on it.
So instead, Joe Biden participated in a Philadelphia town hall forum moderated by ABC's George Stephanopoulos...
via: GettyAnd in typical Trump fashion, the president announced at the last minute that he would hold his own town hall forum in Miami at exactly the same time, hosted by NBC.
The whole campaign process has been nothing short of shambolic.
via: GettySo it's not surprising to see Trump attempting to salvage that last bit of respect from potential voters.
And now, yet another A-lister has weighed into the election.
via: Getty ImagesThis time, it was actor Sam Elliott.
The star lent his voice to Biden's latest political commercial...
via: Getty ImagesAnd, after watching, Twitter was very divided on the matter.
Some praised the commercial and were very happy to see Elliott endorse Biden...

Ugh. Sam Elliott has probably always been on the dark side but I always just held out hope that he wasn’t. Bummer.— Anthony Jr. (@Anthony Jr.)1603241045.0
The commercial's message was about unifying the country and working together toward common goals.
via: Twitter"There is only one America," Elliott says in the ad. "No Democratic rivers, no Republican mountains. Just this great land and all that's possible on it with a fresh start -- cures we can find, futures we can shape, work to reward, dignity to protect."
A piano version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" plays as a video shows Biden interacting with voters on the campaign trail.
via: Twitter"There is so much we can do if we choose to take on problems and not each other, and choose a president who brings out our best," Elliott says. "Joe Biden doesn't need everyone in this country to always agree, just to agree we all love this country and go from there."

Whew, this ad. Bless you, Sam Elliott. https://t.co/3Lru6KH3kJ— Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈 (@Charlotte Clymer 🏳️🌈)1603244508.0
