Hollywood is gunning for Trump and has been for some time. Except for James Woods, Kanye West and Roseanne, it seems the entire industry hates Trump with a passion never seen before.
They blame him for everything, even stuff Obama (their hero) did but one Hollywood legend just went too far.
Oliver Stone, speaking from Iran (seriously) just called Trump the devil and he will regret it.
From the Hollywood Reporter:
Oliver Stone spoke out forcefully against U.S. president Donald Trump and U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East on his first visit to the Islamic Republic of Iran this week, where he was the guest of the 36th Fair International Film Festival.
Having once compared George W. Bush to John Wayne, he told a local journalist that he would have to liken Trump to “Beelzebub,” a name sometimes given to the devil.
Time and again he referred to W as his dramatization of the role of the U.S. and its allies in the Middle East, along with their goals of attaining oil, money and resources at any cost. “I love the movie, it’s a satire,” he said. He referred the war in Iraq as a proxy war and to U.S. foreign policy since 2001 as aimed at regime change, “no matter how disastrous the invasion of Iraq was.”
“We made a mess out of Iraq, Syria, Libya, but it doesn’t matter to the American public. It’s okay to wreck the Middle East,” he said, criticizing the neo-conservative policy of “creative destruction.” He added: “It doesn’t matter who is president – Bush, Obama or Trump, the U.S. will break any treaty” in its interests.
Oliver, I guess you were asleep during the election but one of the main reasons Trump won was because he wanted to stop stupid foreign wars – but with strength, not weakness (as Obama tried).
