Variety: Spike Lee Slams Trump as ‘Motherf—er’ After ‘BlacKkKlansman’ Cannes Premiere
By Christopher Vourlias
“Spike Lee delivered a blistering attack against Donald Trump on Tuesday, refusing to mention the president by name while saying he’d shirked his moral duty to speak out in the aftermath of last year’s deadly riots in Charlottesville.
Appearing at a press conference alongside the stars of “BlacKkKlansman,” which world premiered in Cannes on Monday night, the director said the film was on the “right side of history” while denouncing the president for not taking a firm stance in the wake of violence that erupted following a white nationalist rally, leaving three people dead.
“That motherf—er was given a chance to say we are bout love, and not hate, and that motherf—er did not denounce the motherf—ing Klan, the alt-right, and those Nazi motherf—ers,” he said.
“It was a defining moment, and he could’ve said to the world…that we were better than that.”
Wow, Spike Lee spared no words did he? Blaming Trump for the ills of this country. The very country that gave Lee his start, acceptance and has helped him gain fame and fortune.
A little ungrateful, maybe? Yes, we have problems with profiling and other issues, a lot has to do with our last President who decided to weigh in on every issue involving color. Or his wife, saying how only since Barack was nominated, was she proud of this country.
Didn’t hear Spike denouncing our last President when a Jewish Deli was ws attacked in Paris with knife wielding terrorist after a bombing there in another section. He didn’t even say the word ‘Jewish’ calling it random!
“Obama, Feb. 9, 2015: Look, the point is this: my first job is to protect the American people. It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.”
There was NOTHING random about it! They attacked that Deli because they wanted to kill Jews. Plain and simple.
Obama’s actions during his term in office was not at all friendly towards those of that faith! Nor did he show real remorse when he called the Police “stupid” for doing their job after a neighbor called in a suspected burglary! Wonder what he would have said if the police didn’t show up at all?
Why didn’t he have Iran denounce terror and recognize Israel in the very flawed Iran Nuke deal? Didn’t hear Spike say anything about that!
Obama help create a divide in this country with the help of the rabid, socialist, fascist Left!
Why hasn’t Spike denounced the Charter of Black Lives Matter? They spew hate for Jews and others and don’t hear anything about that?
I guess it’s fine to be selective in your condemnation of others who don’t share the exact outrage you do! Giving a pass to your own is not how this country should work.
Mr. Lee also said at Cannes; “The United States of America was built on the genocide of native people and slavery. That is the fabric of the United States of America,” he said. “As my Brooklyn brother Jay-Z would say, facts.”
If he doesn’t care for America leave! But I guess, the money fountain here at home is to rich to give up, eh?
To bad he sees color. A good number of Americans feel like me. We don’t see color, we see Americans with the same blood running through their veins as we all have.
Why must everything be divide by race, creed or color for some?
