According to a report by the Huffington Post, Michael Shannon, best known to comics fans as General Zod, again went on another bizarre Trump tirade.
In an interview with Playboy magazine the Iceman star again went into a rant about never portraying President Trump. Even though he’s known for playing “bad guys,” the actor made it clear he had no desire to play the President on film.
Shannon goes into detail about what he thinks of Trump and Trump’s mindset. Interviewer Eric Spitznals prodded Shannon with a question about being fascinated with “bad men who are suffering.” But Shannon quickly noted in his opinion that Trump “wasn’t suffering” at all, he’s “having a blast.”
He even went further to state that the current president is clueless about the office:
“He doesn’t even have to work. All the hard work that most people have to do to get to be president of the United States, he just skipped all that. The fucking guy doesn’t even know what’s in the Constitution. He doesn’t have any grasp of history or politics or law or anything. He’s just blindfolded, throwing darts at the side of a bus.”
When questioned about if Trump was able to think deeply about pressing issues, Shannon had some choice words to describe what he believed to be on the mind of the President. You can read them here, they are too vulgar and disgusting for our family website.
As for his thoughts on the presidency, Shannon hopes that it would “fade into nonexistence,” continuing, “I wouldn’t want to memorialize it or celebrate it in any way.”
This isn’t the first time that Shannon has had Trump in his crosshairs. In the past he has said that he hoped those who have parents who voted for Trump became orphans. In speaking to Metro News, Shannon said:
“No offense to the seniors out there. My mom’s a senior citizen but if you’re voting for Trump, its time for the urn… F— ’em. You’re an orphan now.”
On Twitter, plenty of entertainment editors and writers were giving the actor praise for his interview:
