Springtime for Trump? Not yet says Mel
MEL BROOKS will not be writing a musical about Donald Trump because he doesn’t think the president is scary enough.
Brooks, 90, who was awarded the prestigious Bafta Fellowship, wrote and directed 1968 film The Producers, about a Hitler musical. He said of Trump: ‘He hasn’t reached Hitlerian proportions yet, I don’t think he’s dangerous. I think he’s mostly an entertainer, a guy who wants audiences to love him.
‘What I’m afraid of is the guys around him, all the people who whisper in his ears. I just hope Trump stays the egomaniac he is, listens to no one and then we will all be safe.’
