Quentin Tarantino sat down for an extended Q&A session with New York Magazine for the Fall Preview issue this week, and while the director mostly discussed the movie business, it is this quote about President Barack Obama that has garnered the most attention:
I think he’s fantastic. He’s my favorite president, hands down, of my lifetime. He’s been awesome this past year. Especially the rapid, one-after-another-after-another-after-another aspect of it. It’s almost like take no prisoners. His he-doesn’t-give-a-shit attitude has just been so cool. Everyone always talks about these lame-duck presidents. I’ve never seen anybody end with this kind of ending. All the people who supported him along the way that questioned this or that and the other? All of their questions are being answered now.
So, there you have it, Obama-haters, according to Hollywood’s “coolest” director, the time for questioning the 44th president has come to an end.
