Yahoo reports “As you can tell, I don’t say his name,” Spike Lee told the hosts of The View Friday after referring to President Donald Trump only as “Agent Orange” while promoting his new Vietnam drama, Da 5 Bloods.
Oh, we’ve noticed.
The Oscar-winning filmmaker’s appearance on The View came only hours after another video interview he did on Thursday’s The Daily Show (er, The Daily Social Distancing Show, as its been called the past few months).
“From the very beginning we’ve been fighting for this country, from the beginning!” Lee told host Trevor Noah while discussing Crispus Attucks, the first person killed during the Boston Massacre (and thus the American Revolution).”
“We’ve been fighting for this country, as you said, that doesn’t fight for us. We’ve been loving this country that doesn’t love us. So when this guy Agent Orange talks about our brother Colin Kaepernick [the former San Francisco 49ers quarterback seemingly blackballed from the NFL for kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality] not being patriotic, that’s some b-s. … It’s about the same thing that people are marching all across the streets in this world.”
