Judd Apatow’s position on Donald Trump has been transparent since the Republicans basically handed him the nomination for president of the United States. A quick dip into Apatow’s Twitter feed will prove that much. But on a recent appearance of In Depth with Graham Bensinger – mostly a sports talk show – Apatow doubled down.
“I think he’s a sociopath. I think he’s a very, very dangerous person,” Apatow says. “I think even if you believed in a lot of conservative values, you shouldn’t support him because I don’t think Donald Trump believes in those values.”
“He’s somebody looking for power,” Apatow tells Bensinger. “And you know, when you’re a 70-year-old man and you have not spent any time concerned about anybody but yourself and your family…you’ve done nothing for the world… I don’t think suddenly you’re that person that cares about the country.”
I think it’s like a crazy person. I honestly think it’s a crazy person,” Apatow says. “And even if you’re like, ‘I want my taxes to be lower,’ yeah, it’s not enough. Because when North Korea does a missile test, this is not a person that can be trusted in a delicate situation to figure out [how to handle it]. You can tell this is not a person that understands any issue deeply. This is the most important job in the world, and you can’t give it to an idiot…Even if you agree with him about a trade pact or some other position he has. It’s a crazy person. You’ll agree with a couple positions of any crazy person. But he certainly shouldn’t be in a position of power. It’s very very dangerous.”
