This ‘Blazing Saddles’ star is now a conservative meme, and he loves it!

Actor Burton Gilliam’s career has spanned over 40 years and some classic roles in films including Blazing Saddles, Honeymoon in Vegas, and Back to the Future III. Don’t even get us started on his TV career – he has appeared in just about every great show of the 1980s, from The “Dukes of Hazzard” to “The A-Team” to “Knight Rider.” The man has done it all, and now, he’s even a meme.

Gilliam recently posted the following political meme to his Facebook page after a fan made him aware of it, which features his character from Blazing Saddles. The meme notes the irony of the Affordable Care Act (known as “Obamacare”) addressing the issue of people unable to afford health insurance by fining them for it. The look on Gilliam’s face perfectly captures the irony of the statement.

Even though he is active on Facebook, Burton rarely steps into politics, but he couldn’t help chiming in on the meme when he shared it. “Wish I was smart enough to have said that!” he exclaimed, as dozens of fans then began relaying their negative experiences with Obamacare and examples of rising premiums.

To continue the Blazing Saddles/Obamacare meme theme, here’s another, without Gilliam:
