Spike Lee says Hillary Clinton felt she was "entitled" to be president, but it was never a done deal.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker, who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential election, told The Hollywood Reporter at the Cannes Film Festival:

"Hillary comes with entitlement. They thought they were entitled to this and despite what you might think, you gotta work. If you're chilling at Martha's Vineyard, and think 'It's a done deal.' But it wasn't.

"There's one thing you can learn from sports. To quote Yogi Berra: 'It ain't over 'til it's over.' They thought it was theirs. S*** don't work like that."

Of President Donald Trump, the "Do the Right Thing" director, said, "He's not my president. I call him Agent Orange. There was some clip I saw yesterday of him dancing with the Saudis that was just ludicrous. Not only is he not a good president, he can't dance either. He could be impeached on his rhythm. He's the clown with the nuclear codes."

Would he vote for Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, who said he'll run for president in 2020?

"No. Well, I'd need to know how he stood on issues. The thing is, everyone thinks they can be president. Like, 'Look, that guy did it,''' he said.
