Director Rob Reiner reverted back to his Meathead character on Wednesday when he claimed on MSNBC that, as a result of Donald Trump being president, America is “in the last stage of a civil war.”
Amidst gushing praise for his “journalism film” titled “Shock and Awe,” Reiner was asked what can be done to protect the media from Trump’s criticisms.
“How does someone who speaks in the media often, who produces films like ‘Shock and Awe’ that are journalism films, but then also somebody that is in Hollywood, how do you push back on that?” Katie Tur asked Reiner.
“You just have to keep pounding away,” he responded.
“There’s nothing else you can do. They’re just angry, their people are angry, and he will feed them whatever they want to keep that anger going,” he said.
“You see it in the rallies. He actually calls for, you know, this kind of outrage and take it out against the media, take it out against immigrants, take it out against whoever you want. That’s what he does,” Reiner asserted.
“He keeps stirring this up. You have to stay at it. You have to stay at it,” he counseled the TV anchor, “There’s no other way.”
