Donald Trump just became a big “Twin Peaks” fan.
Over the weekend, director David Lynch said in an interview that Trump “could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history,” and the president took notice.
On Monday, Trump tweeted out a Breitbart article saying that the “Blue Velvet” director “now appears to believe that Trump may have been the right choice.” Though Lynch’s full quote from an interview in The Guardian isn’t quite as effusive in his praise of POTUS.
He is undecided about Donald Trump. “He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much. No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.” While Trump may not be doing a good job himself, Lynch thinks, he is opening up a space where other outsiders might. “Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done. Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.”
Lynch told The Guardian he believes he voted Libertarian in 2016 and voted for Bernie Sanders over Hillary Clinton in the Democratic presidential primary.
“I am not really a political person, but I really like the freedom to do what you want to do,” he said.
