Spike Lee: Trump “Will Go Down In History With The Likes Of Hitler”

Spike Lee used a recent awards acceptance speech to call out Donald Trump and the divisiveness he incited up until his final days as president.

While accepting a special prize from the New York Film Critics Circle for his short film New York, New York, Lee condemned the former U.S. president in a speech that was pre-recorded on January 6, shortly after the riot at the U.S. Capitol.

“It’s a very sad day in the history of America. The whole world is laughing at the United States of America, the so-called cradle of democracy. … We’re at a crossroads now, and everybody please be safe. This is not a game. These people got guns with ammunition. I hope to God that I’m wrong, but people are gonna get killed behind this bullshit,” he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “This president, President Agent Orange, will go down in history with the likes of Hitler. These guys — all his boys — they’re going down on the wrong side of history.”
