Kevin Costner is taking shots at President Donald Trump over the USPS situation, and the Internet has a lot to say about it. The Oscar winner joined the “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Tuesday and voiced his concerns about the upcoming presidential election.

While on the “Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert opened up the dialogue by creating a spoof trailer for “The Postman,” a film starring Costner released in 1997. The movie didn’t make a huge splash at the box office, however, Colbert jokes that the movie seems more relevant in 2020.

In the film, set in 2013, Costner portrayed a drifter posing as a USPS mailman. He attempts to restore democracy by delivering letters to and from other towns after a totalitarian leader tries to take over.

“In its day, a critical and box office disaster. But today, chillingly accurate,” a narrator said in the spoof trailer.  “Looks like somebody owes Kevin Costner an apology.”
