Filmmaker David Lynch, while issuing a rejection of President Donald Trump, said the one-time political outsider rising to the White House can make him "one of the greatest presidents in history."
"He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much," Lynch, of Twin Peaks fame, told The Guardian in an in-depth profile. "No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way."
President Trump, regardless of the stigma of his time in office, as Lynch told the Guardian, has changed the path for political outsiders.
"Our so-called leaders can't take the country forward, can't get anything done," Lynch added. "Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this."
Lynch, having once supported former President Ronald Reagan because of his Hollywood connection, now considers himself a Libertarian after rejecting both the Republican and Democratic parties. He told The Guardian he had voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary, but did not vote for President Trump nor Hillary Clinton in the general election.
"I am not really a political person, but I really like the freedom to do what you want to do," Lynch told The Guardian.
