Trump Boasts About David Lynch’s Comment That He Could Become ‘One of the Greatest Presidents’

The President tweeted a Breitbart article touting the director’s comments

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.

Lynch also shared his thoughts on Monday in an interview with Vulture about the #MeToo movement and on sexual misconduct accusations that have impacted the careers of Louis C.K. and Roman Polanski.
“Louis C.K.’s done a lot of really funny stuff. It would be a shame for people not to experience those things anymore. There are probably thousands and thousands of examples of people who had screwed-up lives and didn’t do the best things but did great work. And Roman Polanski: People were writing things about him when he went to Switzerland and got arrested — things like he should be hung. Things get a little out of hand. You feel terrible for anyone who’s been a victim. This subject is tricky business.”
