Actor and comedian Rob Schneider is the latest public figure to abandon the Democratic Party because of their extreme views.

Schneider, 58, explained why he is no longer a Democrat during an appearance on “FOX & Friends” Wednesday morning.

In response to former Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard leaving the Democratic Party, he said, “It shouldn’t be such a shock. We don’t get ten parties, you get two. And I really feel like I don’t want the Democratic Party trying to run my life.”

He continued: “And there’s not one aspect of your life that they don’t want to interfere with. So I had it with them. So I got out of California and moved to the slightly freer state of Arizona.”

Schneider said California’s governor is the main reason he decided to leave his native California.

“I mean, [Gov. Gavin] Newsom pushed me over the edge,” said Schneider. “I mean, it’s just like, I just don’t think your life gets better there. It gets worse.”

The actor said his beliefs don’t align with the Democratic Party’s position on God and family.

“You know something’s wrong when people say, like, if you put God and family and country first, that’s somehow controversial. How is that controversial? So I think at a certain point, you have to say, enough of this, and stand up to it.”

Schneider is a lifelong Democrat who was born in San Francisco. The stand-up comic is best known as a Saturday Night Live veteran and for his starring roles in the comedy films Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999) and its 2005 sequel, The Animal (2001), and more.
