Spike Lee Says Trump Is A ‘Man Of Hate, Violence, And Can’t Be Trusted’
Spike Lee slammed President Donald Trump as a “man of hate, violence” who “can’t be trusted to make moral decisions.”
“[Trump’s] a man of hate, violence, and can’t be trusted to make moral decisions. We can’t be silent anymore,” the 61-year-old director shared during an interview published Tuesday in Vanity Fair while promoting his latest film ” BlacKkKlansman.” (RELATED: Spike Lee Goes On Profane Rant Against Trump At French Film Festival [VIDEO])
“[Trump’s] on the wrong side of history, and we are on the right side of history with this film,” he added.
Lee then called the president “Agent Orange” and claimed Trump needed to “wake the f**k up” as he talked about his movie that deals with the true story of Ron Stallworth, a black Colorado Springs, Colorado, detective who infiltrated a local Ku Klux Klan chapter in the 1970s.
In May, the filmmaker went on a profanity-laced rant against the presdient during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival in France.
“And we have a guy in the White House — I’m not gonna say his fucking name — who defined that moment, not just for Americans but the world, and that motherfucker was given the chance to say ‘we are about love and not hate,'” Lee said as he talked about the violence that broke out at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, last year.
“And that motherfucker did not denounce the motherfucking Klan, the alt-right, and those Nazis motherfuckers,” he added. “It was a defining moment, and he could have said to the world, not the United States, that we were better than that.”
“The so-called American cradle of democracy — that’s bullshit,” he continued. “The United States of America was built on the genocide of native people and slavery. That is the fabric of the United States of America. As my Brooklyn brother Jay-Z would say, facts.”
