Morgan Freeman covers the brand new difficulty of AARP Journal, which we hardly ever quote from, however right here we’re. Freeman was a giant Hillary Clinton supporter, and an Obama supporter earlier than that. He’s a longtime Democrat on the whole, I’m fairly positive. He even went so far as doing voiceover work for HRC’s commercials, that’s how a lot he appreciated her. So he was clearly requested about his politics and what he thinks about Emperor Child Fists. Simply observe: this interview was clearly performed weeks in the past, if not a full month in the past or extra. So Freeman’s “let’s give Trump an opportunity” feedback usually are not coming proper after the previous two weeks of lunatic shenanigans.
Life below Child Fists: “As for politics at this time, I supported Hillary within the election, and now it appears like we’re leaping off a cliff. We simply must learn the way we land. I’m not scared, although. I’m holding out hope that Donald Trump must be president. He can’t not be. What I see is a man who won’t lose.”
Taking part in the president in a number of films: “Some folks thought Hollywood wasn’t prepared for a black president, however I didn’t contemplate it. I’m not an expert black actor; I’m an expert actor. I can bear in mind solely as soon as within the films taking part in black, and that was Driving Miss Daisy.”
Lastly successful an Oscar: “The reality? It was anticlimactic. I used to be up for greatest actor 3 times. The Oscar for Million Greenback Child was for greatest supporting. I preserve the statue at dwelling in just a little room in Mississippi that has tchotchkes in it, and all the high-end awards are there: the Display screen Actors Guild, the Folks’s Selection, Golden Globe. I’ve stopped ready for the perfect actor Oscar, since you get to a degree the place it’s higher to be nominated again and again. It’s extra enjoyable that manner. You get to remain in that crowd.”
Even given the truth that Freeman most likely stated this again in December, I nonetheless don’t perceive this practice of thought: “I’m holding out hope that Donald Trump must be president. He can’t not be. What I see is a man who won’t lose.” What? Trump is a man who doesn’t prefer to lose due to this fact he can’t lose? Why do rational folks make these sorts of arguments? Right here’s an argument I’d prefer to make to all of these folks saying “give him time, perhaps it received’t be that dangerous”: he’s actually doing every little thing he promised to do. He’s banning Muslims from America, he’s hellbent on constructing that f–king wall, and he’s simply as petty, unhinged, idiotic and unpatriotic as ever. He’s going to signal govt orders to “punish” ladies for having abortions, after which he’ll punish them for being on contraception, then he’ll signal one other EO declaring that he has probably the most bigly fingers within the nation. *shakes child fist at God*
