Howard, whose 2001 film “A Beautiful Mind” won Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Director, said many of his colleagues know Trump from the president’s own career in the entertainment industry. Trump starred in the long-running reality TV show “The Apprentice” and has made multiple cameos in television and movies.
So when asked why Hollywood tends to oppose the president, Howard tweeted:
In the entertainment industry many who have known/worked w/ Trump think that while his reality show was fun and ran a long time, he’s a self-serving, dishonest,morally bankrupt ego maniac who doesn’t care about anything or anyone but his Fame & bank account & is hustling the US https://t.co/Ep8ggvquMY
