Like the destructive aliens in the 1996 film, Donald Trump is trying to destroy everything this country holds dear.
And that’s why Will Smith took some time to swat him while promoting “Suicide Squad” in Dubai.
Smith said that the Republican nominee makes him embarrassed to be an American and blasted Republicans and propaganda machine Fox News for trying to spread Islamophobia.
“As painful as it is to hear Donald Trump talk and as embarrassing as it is as an American to hear him talk, I think it’s good,” Smith said before calling it a blessing because now Americans clearly know who to reject in November. “We get to know who people are and now we get to cleanse it out of our country.”
“In terms of Islamophobia in America, for me that’s why it’s important to show up,” Smith continued. “The Middle East can’t allow Fox News to be the arbiter of the imagery, you know. So cinema is a huge way to be able to deliver the truth of the soul of a place to a global audience.”
Will Smith has made it incredibly clear that he is not a fan of the Republican nominee, going off on Trump last week for insulting women and using fear to scare Americans into supporting him.
“For a man to be able to publicly refer to a woman as a fat pig, that makes me teary,” Smith said. “And for people to applaud, that is absolutely fucking insanity to me. My grandmother would have smacked my teeth out of my head if I had referred to a woman as a fat pig. I cannot understand how people can clap for that. It’s absolutely collective insanity.”
“I think as much as we want to believe that love is the greatest human motivator, it’s not. Fear is. Fear is the most dangerous and powerful motivator because when a human being gets scared, fight or flight kicks in. And there is this really separatist non-inclusive xenophobic, racist wave that is sweeping the globe that is making us pull apart farther than putting us together. The importance of leaders is that they have to be level headed, they have to be calm, because when people get scared, they lose their morality and that reptile mind takes over. It’s the type of thing that you see in all forms of nature, but our leaders can’t be that.”
Will Smith is spot on. At this point, Trump is like the aliens from “Independence Day” who come to Earth seeking to take what they want with little or no regard to all the lives they destroy. And like Americans did in that movie, we need to unite against Trump and those of his ilk and push them back to the fringes of our society. Trump and his views should not be allowed to enter the White House. It’s time to reject fear and hate and stick with sanity and love.
