Director Spike Lee claimed in an interview with Variety that he believes that President Trump may attempt to start a new civil war if he loses in November and also wants to reinstate slavery.
As Mediaite reports:
Spike Lee predicted in a new interview that a “civil war” could break out in America following next month’s election, especially if President Donald Trump loses. The filmmaker further suggested that Trump would bring back slavery if he could.
In a wide-ranging interview with Variety, Lee discussed the upcoming presidential election, anticipating that “they might not be able to declare a winner.”
He added, “This could be a civil war. And we got to come out and vote because this motherf—er is not going to leave, and he’ll say that the vote was invalid or rigged. He’s doing that s— already. He’s laying the groundwork to say the election is bogus.”
As we reported in August, Lee asked Anderson Cooper if he believed America would be “coming to a civil war” if Trump loses the election. Similar to his latest statements to Variety, the director told CNN, “I think there’s going to be shenanigans, some skulduggery if he loses, particularly in a close vote, he might not want to leave.”
Lee’s unhinged and slanderous comments are obviously based on nothing more than his own paranoia but that hasn’t stopped members of the mainstream media from boosting and promoting them to a wide audience.
