Well finally, we can all breathe a sigh of relief now that Robert Redford has weighed in (again) with his thoughts on President Trump. In an interview with Esquire magazine's Michael Hainey, the veteran actor said that Trump is worse than President Nixon and that it's all "our fault." Newsbusters summarizes:
He [Redford] found “certain attitudes in Congress” to be depressing, especially the idea that “they assume that you’re dumb; they can take advantage of you being dumb.” He also said that the “McConnells are not helping us at all. They’re taking us backwards in time.
On the subject of Donald Trump, Redford said, “I just think he is who he is. You can’t blame him for being who he is. He’s always been like that. He’s our fault -- that’s how I see it.”
Since he starred in All the President’s Men, Redford decided that he had enough political credibility to be able to compare Nixon to Trump: “Whatever Nixon was, whatever his dark side, he was an accomplished politician … I think on the other side, there’s more ignorance.”
Redford also lamented the fact that the loss of “moral foundation” led to the election of Trump.
Seriously? Hollywood is going to, yet again, disparage Trump voters as lacking in "moral foundation?" Redford and others of his ilk are still living in their own bubbles, completely out of touch with everyday Americans and their struggles. They still have no clue as to why Trump was elected, and as such, continue to espouse the same progressive, idiotic worldview that helped get him elected in the first place.
But by all means, Robert, do continue. Because it will ensure Trump's reelection in 2020.
