Judd Apatow has opened up about his post-election fears, and we totally understand where he's coming from
While he specializes in making us laugh, this time his words are a bit more heart wrenching. Writer and director Judd Apatow opened up about his post-election fears, and his feelings are more relatable than ever before.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Apatow admitted that he watched the election results with his 14-year-old daughter, Iris.
Apatow, who is currently working on the upcoming film The Big Sick, isn’t afraid to make his political opinions well known, and actively spoke out against Donald Trump during his presidential campaign. Now, he’s speaking up about the future.
He also thinks that political analysts got the data wrong right from the start, saying that reporting happened based on a general feeling of being “comfortable that he’s not going to win.”
Later in the interview, Apatow says that he believes voters were looking for an “abusive father” when voting him in, noting that he’s a “man who doesn’t do diapers.”
One thing that Apatow fears the most about the next four years, is the possible loss of women’s rights. That’s something we should all be on the lookout for, no matter what.
We definitely hope that that’ll be the case.
The entire interview is worth reading, as Apatow proves that he’s definitely well invested in both America, and politics in general. But, he wraps up his opinions with one very strong statement.
We couldn’t agree more.
