You’re not likely to find much crossover between fans of British comedian and actor John Cleese and supporters of President Donald Trump. Best known as a member of the Monty Python comedy troupe, Cleese made his thoughts on the current political climate in America clear during an interview with the Daily Beast two weeks ago, when he described the commander-in-chief as “not mentally balanced” and “an extraordinary caricature of an asshole; a person who has no interest in anyone else except himself.” He also called Trump’s supporters “ignorant because they only ever get news from Fox News.” Fun fact: Cleese played a billionaire hotel owner named Donald in the 2001 comedy Rat Race. We’re not sure whether Cleese found time to watch any of the impeachment hearings this month, but chances are the 80-year-old thespian has been too busy celebrating the 50th anniversary of Monty Python’s Flying Circus this fall. He’s also working on a stage adaptation of the 1979 cinematic satire The Life of Brian and is writing a second volume of his memoir So, Anyway…. Then, of course, there’s Brexit, which he calls a “shitshow.”
