Quentin Tarantino is in the middle of directing “The Hateful Eight,” a film he says is about the “racial aftermath” of the Civil War.

Though that was in his script before Ferguson and Baltimore, Tarantino said he “loves” that “the issue of white supremacy is being talked about and dealt with.”


In an interview with New York Magazine, Tarantino was asked how he thinks Barack Obama has done in light of those racially-charged events.

“I think he’s fantastic,” Tarantino said. “He’s my favorite president, hands down, of my lifetime.”

“He’s been awesome this past year. Especially the rapid, one-after-another-after-another-after-another aspect of it. It’s almost like take no prisoners.”

“His he-doesn’t-give-a-shit attitude has just been so cool. Everyone always talks about these lame-duck presidents. I’ve never seen anybody end with this kind of ending.”

“All the people who supported him along the way that questioned this or that and the other? All of their questions are being answered now.” (RELATED: Quentin Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ Trailer Is Guns, Snow And Death Threats)
