The last time we checked in with far-left actor Matt Damon, he was wishing our government would confiscate everyone’s guns like Australia did.
Now he’s saying he’s “frightened” by the prospect of a Trump presidency.
Breitbart has the details:
Matt Damon: ‘I’m Really Frightened at the Prospect of a Trump Presidency’
At the “Jason Bourne,” premiere, actor Matt Damon told the Associated Press that he is “really frightened” of the prospect of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump becoming the president of the United States.
After praising Senator Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) endorsement of presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, Damon said, “I’m really frightened at the prospect of a Trump presidency and what that would mean. It’s not even a Republican-Democrat issue. I’m genuinely concerned about his temperament.”
Here’s the video:
Notice how Damon tried to appear nonpartisan by saying: “It’s not even a Republican-Democrat issue.”
That’s incredibly misleading. Matt Damon is a dyed-in-the-wool liberal Democrat who grew up in liberal Massachusetts with a single college professor mom and now lives in liberal Hollywood. He’d sooner give up his multi-million dollar film career than vote for a Republican.
He’s also just using a method from his own playbook. Back in 2008, he used the same tactic against Republican VP candidate Sarah Palin by questioning her intelligence and wondering if she even believed dinosaurs existed.

You do the actuary tables and there’s a one out of three chance, if not more, that McCain doesn’t survive his first term and it will be President Palin. And it really…we were talking about it earlier…it’s like a really bad Disney movie.
I need to know if she really thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago, that’s an important…I want to know that. I really do. Because she’s going to have the nuclear codes. I want to know if she thinks dinosaurs were here 4000 years ago. Or if she banned books or tried to ban books. We can’t have that.

Sorry Matt, your fake reasonable tut-tutting isn’t going to work this time.
Why don’t you go back to making millions on films that feature gun violence and give the rest of us a break?
