Director Rob Reiner Unloads On Donald Trump For Pushing White Nationalism

"It's scary and sad."

Rob Reiner has absolutely no love for Donald Trump.

The “When Harry Met Sally” director and longtime liberal activist didn’t hold back when discussing Trump on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” on Sunday.

“I believe that what we’ve done, what we’ve seen, is the last throes of the Civil War,” Reiner told host Joy Reid, in reference to the GOP presidential candidate’s divisive rhetoric on the campaign trail.

Watch the full clip here:

Reiner then blasted Trump for “leading the way for white nationalism,” and said it was “sad” how some people were hanging on to an idea of a white, immigrant-free America.

It’s not the first time Reiner has criticized Trump. He joined Twitter in May with the sole aim of preventing the former reality TV star from winning the election. In his very first tweet, Reiner called Trump a “narcissistic, misogynistic racist” and “a pathological liar.”

Reiner has also likened Trump to the bigoted Archie Bunker from the 1970’s TV series “All in the Family,” in which he starred as the lead character’s liberal son-in-law.

There’s no question about it. Archie would be voting for Trump,” Reiner told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
