Judd Apatow Says Voters Were Conned By Trump

Donald Trump’s supporters are going to regret voting for him, Judd Apatow suggested Wednesday in an interview with Variety magazine.

According to The Hill, the film director said the president-elect’s fans will be disappointed when he fails to deliver on his campaign promises. “What saddens me is that over the next eight to nine months, people are going to see that they got conned,” he predicted.

Apatow lamented that “it’s going to be exactly the same as George W. Bush but scarier because the guy in charge is unstable and loves revenge.” The director mocked Trump’s pledge to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C., explaining: “He is the swamp. This is going to be a country completely controlled by corporations. It’s going to be brutal when the people who voted for him realize that he’s not their savior — he’s their worst-case scenario.”

Apatow said he fears lawmakers and Supreme Court justices will back the new president’s proposals. “Donald Trump has the Senate and the House and the Supreme Court. You are going to see what happens when these people from another generation have total control,” he warned.

The director of “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” called on his fellow moviemakers to create escapist entertainment for people who want to forget about Trump for a couple of hours. “We need to make art about people who love each other and take care of each other,” he said. “This is a man who has bragged about never changing a diaper in his life. Why do people think he’s going to take care of them?”
