David Lynch Thinks Trump Could Go Down As "One Of The Greatest Presidents In History"

The 'Twin Peaks' creator believes Trump has disrupted the presidency like no one else has.

Iconic director and Twin Peaks creator David Lynch was interviewed by The Guardian over the weekend where the 72-year-old shared his thoughts on the world.

From movies -- he doesn't like watching 'em -- to politics, Lynch was incredibly candid. When discussing his politics the director revealed he was a Bernie Sanders supporter, and can't even remember who he voted for in the presidential election.

"I am not really a political person," he told The Guardian. 

As the conversation turned to controversial U.S. President Donald Trump, Lynch was undecided where he stood.

"He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much," he said.

"No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way. Our so-called leaders can't take the country forward, they can't get anything done. Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this."

Despite labelling himself as not really a political person, back in 2012 Lynch wrote a note endorsing the re-election of former president Barack Obama. Part of that came from identifying as a democrat, but also he was incredibly fearful that you could rearrange Mitt Romney's last name into "R MONEY".

"I believe he would like to get his Mitts on R Money," Lynch wrote for the 90days90reasons campaign.

"I think electing Mitt Romney would be a catastrophe for our country -- one which would be real difficult to straighten out later."

Lynch has published a part-biography-part-memoir titled Room to Dream which stands at just under 600 pages, and aims to chronicle his life, from childhood all the way up to the man obsessed with his work he is now.
