Spike Lee is one of President Trump’s most irredeemable Hollywood elitist critics.
He really loves bashing Trump in the press as if he seeks out journalists just so he can tell everybody how he truly feels about our president.
And Spike’s latest comment about him will make your jaw drop.
Spike Lee hasn’t been relevant for a long time. In the late 1980’s he was the biggest up-and-coming African American director for hits like Do The Right Thing, Malcolm X and Jungle Fever.
The last movie he made that was a semi-commercial success was 2006’s Inside Man and that’s probably because it was a big time studio movie starring the legendary Denzel Washington and, Clive Owens, who was a huge movie star at that time.
But now his latest movie BlacKkKlansman is receiving critical acclaim, which coincidentally stars Denzel Washington’s son, John David Washington, based on a true story about an African American detective who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan and became the head of a local chapter in Colorado.
So, of course, Lee is using his newfound attention to attack Trump and recently said that our president is a “man of hate, violence, and can’t be trusted to make moral decisions.”
If he was a man of hate then he wouldn’t be a hero to working-class Americans, trying to bring as many jobs back to our great nation and no longer allow terrible trade deals with the rest of the world.
If he was a man of violence then he would just let Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un of North Korea continue testing rockets and building nuclear weapons. He wouldn’t have put Iran’s president in his place like he did on Twitter last week.
If he couldn’t be trusted to make moral decisions then over 60 million people wouldn’t have voted for him to lead this great nation.
Lee has been flamboyant about his Trump-hatred by screaming hyperbole about him like he did at the premiere for BlacKkKlansman in New York City.
Lee screamed, “Agent Orange, wake up! Wake the f-ck up.” He later added, “We can’t be silent anymore. He’s on the wrong side of history, and we are on the right side of history with this film.”
The early reviews of his film are good but that’s not saying a whole lot. It seems to be widely agreed upon by these reviewers that it has violent shifts in tone and the “True Story” is extremely exaggerated through the whole movie.
During the premiere the actors and director took the time to compare the events happening in the movie to what’s happening right now.
One of the stars, Topher Grace – who plays Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, said during the premiere that Trump uses certain words to relay racism to his base, “He uses the terms ‘America first’ and ‘Make America Great Again’ more than once. Watching and hearing Trump say those exact words in 2017, the similarities were pretty eye-opening, which is really scary. I think the bold message of the film is, if you don’t look at your history, you might be condemned to repeat it—and we might be repeating a bit now.”
In the movie, it makes it seem like the message is that the Ku Klux Klan is somehow going to make this massive comeback in America.
Except, the group has a pathetic 5,000 total people in the group today. That’s a far cry from the 4 million that they used to have.
Spike Lee is trying to scare liberals into thinking that Trump’s entire base is part of the KKK and that’s hilariously untrue.
And by extension, the filmmakers are pointing out that Trump shares the racist group’s sentiments because of his slogans? That’s ridiculous.
But liberals will eat this kind of thing up as they always do.
