Matt Damon Says Trump Makes People Pretend to Like Him to Film at His Buildings

I imagine that since January 20th, at least one person has come out of a long-term coma, asked who the president is and after being answered said “No, really.” I don’t even think the people who voted for Trump were expecting him to actually win the election. My theory is that Hillary Clinton was just such a terrible candidate that so many people cast protest votes that he actually won.

One of the things that makes Trump’s presidency so unbelievable is this tidbit Matt Damon revealed when The Hollywood Reporter asked him if he had ever met President Trump.

No. The deal was that if you wanted to shoot in one of his buildings, you had to write him in a part. [Director] Martin Brest had to write something in Scent of a Woman — and the whole crew was in on it. You have to waste an hour of your day with a bullshit shot: Donald Trump walks in and Al Pacino’s like, “Hello, Mr. Trump!” — you had to call him by name — and then he exits. You waste a little time so that you can get the permit, and then you can cut the scene out. But I guess in Home Alone 2 they left it in.

This so perfectly encapsulated who Donald Trump is and what his appeal is. He’s what a poor person with no class imagines being rich is like. His signature style is having everything gilded, which is expensive but thoroughly tacky. He’s married to a supermodel who doesn’t even want to hold his hand. He acts like he’s surrounded by celebrity friends, but the only people who can stand him are C-list losers like Paris Hilton or Caitlyn Jenner, though even she is getting sick of his crap. Oh, and Bill and Hillary Clinton. And because no actual celebrities like him, he uses his inherited wealth to make them pretend they want him around.

I feel like everyone went to school with someone like Donald Trump. There was probably some fat girl in your class who was inexplicably a cheerleader and hung out with the popular girls, and then you found out that her mother was the mayor or something. That’s Donald Trump; an insecure, fat high school girl with rich parents. Which probably explains why Bill Clinton liked him, if you think about it.

The problem with common sense is that it isn’t that common anymore, as evidenced by the reaction’s to Matt’s completely common sense position.

is not up to you Erik, to say which type of sexual misconduct was “not as bad” and to establish if Dylan Farrow’s allegations are or aren’t true. Mansplaining sexual abuse to women, and given massive yet not surprising extent of what the #mettoo movement has shown to us. is safe to say all of us have been a victim of in one way or another. So no, not Damon nor you can explain to us was is “not as bad”. The women CK harassed have had their careers and lives derailed by his behaviour that you guys see as… Read more »

Saying that bad acts are on a continuum isn’t controversial at all. Saying this?

“I think you can say that while also saying that maybe what Louis C.K. did wasn’t as bad or even that the allegations that Woody Allen molested Dylan Farrow probably aren’t true.”
Is complete horseshit. Louis C.K.’s shit is incredibly bad, and he completely deserves what’s happening to him. But above all, if you think that Woody Allen probably didn’t molest Dylan Farrow, you’re either completely misinformed (which at this point, for anyone in media, is gross negligence) or you’re a monstrous asshole. Period.
