Matt Damon lashed out at President Obama in a new interview with Elle magazine, saying he would’ve preferred “a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done.”

“I’ve talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level,” Damon fumed. “One of them said to me, ‘Never again. I will never be fooled again by a politician…You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of this country, much better.”

“If the Democrats think that they didn’t have a mandate,” Damon continued. “People are literally without any focus or leadership, just wandering out into the streets to yell right now because they are so pissed off. Imagine if they had a leader.”

The actor’s criticism of President Obama is not new; he had previously chided him on CNN’s Piers Morgan last March, saying he wasn’t a fan, but appreciated that he was a “deep thinker.”
