Spike Lee slammed Trump as a “man of hate, violence” who “can’t be trusted t 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. Spike has never been shy about sharing his political opinions, and his latest film gives him an opportunity to weigh in on the Trump era through the lens of history.
On Monday night a red carpet was held for the premiere of the BlacKkKlansman Spike says, “Agent Orange, wake up! Wake the fuck up.” BlacKkKlansman tells the true story of Ron Stallworth, the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department in the 1970s, who successfully infiltrated a local Klu Klux Klan chapter.
In May, Spike went on a profanity rant against Trump during the 71st annual Cannes Film Festival in France. “And we have a guy in the White House- I’m not gonna say his f***ing name – who defined that moment, not just for American but the world, and that motherf****er was given the chance to say ‘we are about love and not hate.”
