Ridley Scott Blasts Donald Trump’s Response to Coronavirus : ‘He’s a Nutcase, Isn’t He?’

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread across the globe, Hollywood has been brought to a standstill. TV and movie productions have been put on hold, as the industry — along with mill…

The Last Duel ”? We, of course, sensibly put the film on hold. I finished in France after shooting for a month and decided it was sensible to close down for the time being. We’re a month in and it looked fantastic. The period is 1360, so we’re back to medieval France and it’s kind of interesting. Back about two weeks ago, we decided to hold it out because it’s silly to continue and wait for the inevitable to happen. We were set to go to Ireland in a week and it was a natural break, so I said, “Why don’t we stop here and we’ll return?” What do you think about the way that politicians are handling the coronavirus crisis? Particularly with this orange-headed fellow that’s running us, he’s a nutcase, isn’t he? [New York Gov. Andrew] Cuomo made a name for himself, he’s put himself on the map certainly. Looking at the globalization of the politicians that are running the world, half the time being run by idiots and the other time by despots, there are very few worthwhile ones, if you know what I mean. No one wants to go into politics. If anyone has half a brain they wouldn’t want to go into politics anyway, right? What would you suggest that leaders should be doing differently? I’m a war baby, so, in the war years, we had rationing. People could not binge on food, we had ration books with coupons where you were at a limited amount that you could buy. They should do that now because people are buying so much food and then the food is rotting. In England as well, I mean, Jesus, Boris [Johnson], get out your thinking cap, ’cause what we’re now talking on is an iPhone, a perfect coupon distributor to limit what you can buy each time you go to the shops. And that way, you have order. You must have order and calm. What do you think about how the media has handled it? The difference between the news networks is outrageous. Yes, insane. People still think it’s a kind of political hoax, I mean what are you, crazy? I still think CNN’s the best and they are in dismay at how it’s not being handled properly. What do you think needs to be done to stop the spread? If we stay indoors for the given amount of time, they get a handle on it to understand what’s going on. The irony is that for the most part, it’ll be an experience of mild to severe flu for most people and old geezers like me have gotta watch my back. And I am. I’m being very cautious, I want to return and finish off the film with . Are you doing anything in particular to pass the time? I’m a big painter. I resumed painting 10 years ago. My whole grounding is in art school. I paint all the time. Popular on Variety Read more: Variety

Oh, how original...remember when the entertainment industry weren't tribalists? It needs to go back to that because just one point of view is TIRING. AndRFlo011 Anybody that still defends Trump, especially at this point, is a lost cause. No sweetie, they are dying because Obama and the Dems in congress wouldn't fund the SARS Vaccine in 2015. Oh, and in the Coronavirus bill,,,they spent BILLIONS on Crap like NEA, Planned Parenthood and protecting Illegals. So admit it. YOU LIE.

If he is a nutcase, then what are U.? Doubt if U could run a small company vs a mega USA.. Please tell him to take a flying fuck from me. He hasn’t a clue idjut Maybe Ridley should direct his comment to Boris. Foreigners venting about our leadership, bah With each passing day, Americans hate 'celebrities' and 'journalists' even more.

Bash Trump. What would Scott have done differently? Pulled a Biden and continue to let thousands of Chinese to fly in and infect all of us? How about some constructive criticism in the way of useful suggestions? Hollywood talks out of their ass continually. Why would I care what some English asshole director has to say.

Orange man bad

You All Knew About Weinstein . What a crying shame Hollywood is really suffering during these times. Movie theaters may never survive either. Such a shame. Would be just terrible if people COULD NOT CARE LESS. RidleyScottCG TRUMP2020 AmericaFirst 🇺🇸 Thank u it's elite idiots like u Trump will win 2020

Ridley Scott is another in a long line of smug, out of touch, Hollywood asshats, which you continue to waste perfectly good ink and trees on. Al Frankenstein? Now that’s a credible source. About as credible as “Mad” Magazine. No one gives a Rats A$$ what this Whack Job has to say.... I like some of his movies, but that does not mean, I would give his opinions, anymore credibility then I would any person on the street.

I must have missed that article while wiping my ass with your rag magazine. The pages are softer the other reputable ones.

Mason Disick Just Accidentally Revealed That Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Aren’t Actually Back TogetherHe is SPILLING the tea!

Ol' ridley scott sure is a human dunce cap,huh? Let’s pray for our country and our president! Get ready for Easter! Ridley I HAVE to ask...did you just come out of a coma ? Scott is a G like no other He is... he is. We are all Roy Batty TrumpIsTheWORSTPresidentEVER Who cares what he thinks? When he runs for office & represents constituents counting on him to make their lives better his opinion might matter.

Child Reporter Claims Kylie Jenner Is Not Dating Travis ScottThere’s probably only so much Fortnite the kids of celebrities can play before they tire of it—which would explain why so many of them are making surprise Instagram accounts and spilling all their family secrets on Instagram Live. Not even the Kardashians are safe from a bored kid with a smartphone! 😩 *child reporter* 😩

Ridley Scott is British. Never heard of him so I'm not reading it Yes, he totally is a nutcase. See Al Franken’s article, The President is Crazy. RS is an excellent director without question. That stated, how and why is his opinion (assuming that he is quoted correctly) a headline? As entertainment ‘journalism’ craters due to Wuhan Virus, this click-bait garbage now passes for ‘news’? Good riddance to cheap infotainment.

SO TRUE. BradleyWhitford Yep BradleyWhitford Just notice that? 😂😂😂😂😂 Ridley Scott: '[Trump's] a nutcase, isn’t he?' Me: 'Yeah--I'm pretty sure that's what Rex Tillerson called him.'

So what would be said if 5 years ago someone had said “ boy this black faced boy sure is a crook” respect the office w_terrence Believe, Jair Bolsonaro is way worse. Yes he is a useless human being not question about it Respiratory illness and the guy responsible for chest bursting aliens is quoted. Trump is a monster that would put the mutant dogs in “Aliens” to shame.

Trump is as inept as he is stupid. He’s a disgrace to his office and should either resign or be fired. His response to this virus has been criminally irresponsible. realDonaldTrump
