In fact, he’s become one of the most vocal anti-Trump voices in the entertainment industry this election, regularly tweeting about why a Trump presidency would essentially mean the end of days.
Unconstrained by a 140-character limit on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger,” Apatow detailed his distaste for the former reality show host at length, expressing disbelief that Americans feel comfortable entrusting a power-hungry “crazy person” with the nuclear codes.
“Well, I think he’s a sociopath. I think he’s a very, very dangerous person,” Apatow explained. “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. I think that he’s a heat-seeker; he’s somebody looking for power. 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 ... 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,” he continued. “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 very complex situations. You can tell this is not a person that understands any issue deeply.”
