In a recent interview with commentator Russell Brand, renowned filmmaker Oliver Stone made headlines by admitting that he had made a mistake voting for President Joe Biden and expressing concerns that the president may lead the country into a potential “World War 3.” The frank conversation shed light on Stone’s growing disillusionment with America’s political leadership.
Oliver Stone, known for his critically acclaimed films such as “Platoon,” “JFK,” and “Natural Born Killers,” has been a vocal critic of US foreign policy for decades. In the interview, Stone expressed his regret for supporting Biden in the 2020 election, stating, “I voted for him — I made a mistake! This is a potential World War III.”
“If we don’t stop this, what Biden is doing, this guy is – I voted for him – I made a mistake, I was thinking he was an old man now that he would calm down, that he would be more mellow and so-forth, I didn’t see that at all,” Stone told Brand. “I see a man who maybe is not in charge of his own administration. Who knows?”
Stone went on to voice his concerns about the current political climate, suggesting that President Biden might not be fully in charge of his own administration. He warned of the possibility of escalating global tensions and armed conflicts under the Biden presidency.
