Film director Spike Lee made an alarming prediction about the future of the planet when asked if he thinks Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders should launch another bid for president in 2020.
“Shoot, I hope this nuclear code doesn’t get punched. I’m not thinking about 2020,” Lee, who endorsed Sanders’s 2016 run, told Variety in an interview. “Look, you got Putin. You got the other crazy guy in North Korea and this other crazy guy, Agent Orange. That’s not a good trio for me, my children, for the world.”
In a wide-ranging interview with the outlet, the Oscar-winning director said advertisers who pulled funding from New York’s Public Theater over its production of Shakespeare in the Park’s Julius Caesar — in which a stand-in for President Donald Trump is brutally stabbed to death — will affect future art projects.
