Hollywood director Steven Spielberg is blaming conservatives for all the “rage” he perceives sweeping across America. Yet, he does make a prediction — “a happy ending in November” — which presumably excludes a Republican win.
Speaking to Sky News, Spielberg said:
“I think that America is a very rational country that is, right now, going through a little bit of what Paddy Chayefsky predicted years ago when he made the movie — he wrote the screenplay for ‘Network’ — and he had everybody go to the window and shout to the night, ‘I’m mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.’ And I think America is going through a paroxysm of rage based on a lot of build-up and distrust of our government; based on, basically, a Congress that’s done nothing, that’s been stuck — in a conservative way — stuck by the conservatives and not been able to really do anything to progress us forward. But I think that everything will turn out. I think there’s going to be a happy ending in November!”
