Woody Allen says President Obama should be granted dictatorial powersAnd besides, dictators are cool and Obama is cool so wouldn’t Obama be a real cool dictator? Sheesh!
Woody Allen has a strange take on the democracy that allowed him to become rich and famous.
The "Scoop" director said it would be a cool idea for President Barack Obama to be dictator for a few years.
So he could get things done without all the hassle of opposing views getting in the way.
In an interview published by Spanish language newspaper La Vanguardia (that we translated), Allen says “I am pleased with Obama. I think he’s brilliant. The Republican Party should get out of his way and stop trying to hurt him.”
But wait - there's more!
The director said "it would be good…if he could be a dictator for a few years because he could do a lot of good things quickly." (emphasis added)
Is it the drugs these people take or the length of time they’ve taken them? Is there a single uncooked brain cell left in all of Hollywood? It is just dumbfounding that people can be so scary stupid.
