Oscar-winning Hollywood director Oliver Stone expressed regret for voting for Joe Biden, admitting he “made a mistake” and the world could now hurtling towards World War Three.
The “JFK” and “Platoon” director appeared on British comedian Russell Brand’s podcast, where he delivered a scathing rebuke of the president.
Stone and Brand discussed Stone’s 2022 documentary “Nuclear Now,” which promotes nuclear power to fight climate change before they delved into politics.
First, Stone slammed Biden for his intervention in the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
“This is a potential World War III,” he began.
“This is the same situation as World War I, in a sense — the stupidity of it because of the alliances and the fears and the built-up phobias.”
“If we don’t stop this, what Biden is doing…” the director added.
Stone said Biden was not the president he thought he was when he cast his vote.
“I voted for him. I made a mistake thinking that he was an old man now, that he would calm down, he’d be more mellow, and so forth,” Stone said.
“I see a man who maybe is not in charge of his own administration. Who knows?” he continued.
“But it seems that he’s dragging us stupidly into a confrontation with a power that’s not going to give.”
Stone’s remarks reflect the concerns of nearly half of Americans regarding Biden’s approach to the Ukraine war.
