Rob Reiner About Trump: ‘I Just Want Him to Go Away’


When Meathead isn’t pushing Russian conspiracy theories on news networks, he spends his free time … complaining about Donald Trump.

So in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor, director, and liberal megaphone tried to link his latest film, LBJ, to his feelings on Trump and conservatives. When Ashley Lee asked him if he would ever direct a Trump movie, Reiner responded, “No, I don’t think I would be interested in that. I just want him to go away. This is a satire that you can’t make it up. It’s like you don’t have to change anything.”

He went on to talk about how he perceives the Trump era: “Well, I feel like I’m in a nightmare that doesn’t ever stop … It’s sad. I worry for the health of democracy. Hopefully we will live past this, but the question is how frayed or irreparable will be the damage to the fabric of democracy going forward. We’ve already gotten to a point now where I think a lot of the public can’t distinguish between what’s real and what’s fake. He keeps fueling that with fake news — he just goes out there and he just lies and it doesn’t matter — so it becomes ever more difficult for mainstream, legitimate press to break through with anything meaningful.”
