Newsweek: Filmmaker Spike Lee continues to offer his outspoken hatred about Donald Trump, calling the U.S. President the “clown with the nuclear codes” in a new interview.
“He’s not my president. I call him Agent Orange, Lee told The Hollywood Reporter Sunday.
The Do the Right Thing and Inside Man director, reacting to footage of Trump’s trip to the UAE, added: “There was some clip I saw yesterday of him dancing with the Saudis that was just ludicrous. Not only is he not a good president, he can’t dance either. (Laughs.) He could be impeached on his rhythm.”
Lee, 60, has expressed strong criticism and hate of the president before, going as far as to drop a song by R&B singer Chrisette Michele from his new Netflix series because she agreed to perform at Trump’s inaugural ball in January. That’s not the result of Love. It’s Hate By Lee. Is it racial? Is it Racist? Lee is non-white while president Trump is not non-white.
Lee thinks, wrongly, that President Trump is from Brooklyn when the president was born in Queens.
