David Mamet: Trump Is a ‘Great President,’ Left’s Reaction Has Been ‘Psychotic’


The acclaimed playwright and screenwriter David Mamet told Breitbart News on Thursday that he thinks Donald Trump is a “great president,” while liberal reaction to his presidency has been “psychotic.”

David Mamet’s body of work includes the seminal plays Glengarry Glen RossOleanna, and American Buffalo. Mamet has two new works out, including a book titled The Diary of a Porn Star by Priscilla Wriston-Ranger.

He spoke with Breitbart News’ editor-in-chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Daily on Sirius XM Patriot 125. The conversation covered Mamet’s career, his intellectual inspirations, and his take on President Trump.

“The reaction to Trump to me is fascinating,” Mamet said. “And one day I started looking at it and squinted my eyes. If you take a Freudian analytical concept, turn it inside out — flip cause and effect and see if the dream makes sense. So if we flip cause and effect, the reaction to Trump — which is psychotic — is equal I believe hydraulically to the reaction to a charismatic leader.” read more

10 Comments on David Mamet: Trump Is a ‘Great President,’ Left’s Reaction Has Been ‘Psychotic’

  1. It’s an interesting way of putting it and Mamet’s analogy is spot on, but I don’t know a single progtard who will be able to understand what he is saying.

  2. Nothing psychotic about it, it’s fear. The left has had it their way for a very long time. The media is the engine that drives the crazy train full of lies and corruption and the progressive elites are the conductors. The liberal sheeple as always will follow right along. All three groups are pushing to normalize the crushing of individual liberty.

    They’re not upset with Trump, he just a rallying point for them. We are the enemy. Hopefully we’re finally waking up to the fact that they would prefer us dead. We’re in a cold civil war that’s heating up. Long Live the Republic!

  3. At the Chicago Public Library Foundation 20th anniversary fundraiser in 2006, Mamet announced “My alma mater is the Chicago Public Library. I got what little educational foundation I got in the third-floor reading room, under the tutelage of a Coca-Cola sign”
    Sounds like a great guy

  4. Of course Trump is a great American president.
    Obviously the left has another country’s president in mind – probably Venzuela’s.
