Trump Has Some Interesting Advice for Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane
Donald Trump is better at everything than mere peasants like you and I. He’s really rich, a great negotiator and — according to a clip from an abandoned documentary unearthed by Vox — an astute film critic.
Noted documentary filmmaker Errol Morris interviewed Trump for a project called Movie Movie, which he later abandoned. The director’s premise was very interesting, yet incredibly simple:
The Movie Movie, an aborted project, is based on the idea of taking Donald Trump, Mikhail Gorbachev and others and putting them in the movies they most admire. Isn’t it possible that in an alternative universe Donald Trump actually starred in Citizen Kane?
Maybe it is possible, but luckily that alternative universe is either (a) nonexistent, or (b) will never see the light of day in our current reality.
Yet Trump’s ability to understand and discuss Orson Welles‘s cinematic masterpiece in an intelligent, unoffensive manner is striking. At least, until Morris asks him what advice, if any, he’d give to Welles’s titular character. Trump’s response? “Get yourself a different woman.” Thanks, Donald.
