Several celebrities are airing their thoughts and sentiments regarding the chaotic Presidential debate that transpired between US President Donald Trump and aspirant Joe Biden but Star Wars legend Mark Hamill arguably takes the cake with his shady and LOL-worthy reaction following the intense political debacle. 



Hamill, known for being politically outspoken on social media took a jab at the discourse, describing it as the worst thing he's ever seen in his life. What's even more hilarious (and embarrassing) is the fact that he went as far as comparing it to the Star Wars Holiday Special which a lot of fans still consider to this day as one giant hot mess. He wrote: "That debate was the worst thing I've ever seen & I was in The Star Wars Holiday Special.". Oof! Check out Mark's tweet below:


True blue Star Wars fans have a thing or two to say about their feelings towards the infamous Holiday Special which aired on television in 1978, set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back and the TV special which starred the film franchise's OG actors sure left a bad taste in a lot of people's mouths. The fact that Hamill was forced to admit that the Holiday Special was straight-up awful and disastrous says a lot. But hey, at least he's a good sport about it 40+ years later and he's not ashamed to acknowledge just how bad and unnecessary that spinoff special was. I'll forever be a fan of your honesty, Master Luke Skywalker!

Hamill's last appearance in the Skywalker sage came in 2017's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
