Hollywood director Spike Lee insisted that President Donald Trump is a “man of hate, violence, and can’t be trusted to make moral decisions.”
Lee made his comments during the debut of his newest film, BlacKkKlansman, the real-life tale of a black Colorado police officer who infiltrated the KKK in the 1970s while investigating a Klan office opening in his jurisdiction, Vanity Fair reported.
“Agent Orange, wake up! Wake the fuck up,” the director said at the film’s premiere Monday held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Harvey Theater in New York City. “He’s a man of hate, violence, and can’t be trusted to make moral decisions. 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.”
That same night, cast member John David Washington (Starring as officer Ron Stallworth) went on to insist that the 1970s period piece was a reflection of today.
