Samuel L. Jackson says he sees in former, Donald Trump the “same rednecks” who hurled racist slurs at him as a kid during interview with Rolling Stone

Legendary actor Samuel L. Jackson brutally rips into Donald Trump in an explosive new interview with Rolling Stone.

The brilliant tirade started with Jackson explaining that he was a "child of the Sixties" and he "grew up in segregation." Jackson says that some of the racists would hide it, but "they don't hide it anymore."

"I know how the Republicans feel about me now because of what my mindset is," he said.

"When I see Trump, I see the same rednecks I saw when I was growing up who called me “n***er” and tried to keep me in my place," Jackson went on. "That’s what the Republican Party is to me. They’re doing it to young people, gay people. They don’t care who you are. If you’re not them, you’re the enemy."

MAGA fans are absolutely furious and already vowing to never watch any more Samuel L. Jackson films. Apparently, the truth hurts. 

Samuel L. Jackson says he sees in former President Trump the “same rednecks” who hurled racist slurs at him as a kid.

“When I grew up in segregation, I knew which white people didn’t want to be bothered with me, and I knew how they felt about me,” the “Pulp Fiction” actor said in an interview with The Daily Beast published Tuesday.

“When I see Trump, I see the same rednecks I saw when I was growing up … [who] tried to keep me in my place,” Jackson said, adding that they would direct racist insults at him.

“That’s what the Republican Party is to me,” the 74-year-old performer, who was raised in Tennessee, said.

“They’re doing it to young people, gay people. They don’t care who you are,” Jackson said. “If you’re not them, you’re the enemy.”

Jackson’s Trump criticism came in response to a question about serving as an usher at the funeral of Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968.

He is the most prolific actor of his generation and his films have grossed close to $30 billion, making him one of the highest-grossing actors ever. He is Quentin Tarantino’s muse, and has worked with everyone from Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg to Spike Lee and Paul Thomas Anderson. He’s fought Stormtroopers, supervillains, and King Kong. And, after 11 appearances as Marvel’s one-eyed superhero-wrangling spymaster over 15 years, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is finally getting his own standalone project.

The seemingly ageless 74-year-old will reprise his role as Fury in Secret Invasion, a Disney+ series premiering June 21st wherein he assembles an elite team to stop the villainous Skrulls from conquering Earth. Jackson is joined in the show by an all-star supporting cast, including Ben Mendelsohn, Cobie Smulders, Martin Freeman, Emilia Clarke, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Don Cheadle, and Olivia Colman. He’ll next appear as Fury in The Marvels, a supercharged Captain Marvel sequel starring Brie Larson and hitting theaters in November, and is currently in Atlanta filming the August Wilson adaptation The Piano Lesson opposite John David Washington, Danielle Deadwyler, and Ray Fisher for Netflix.
