Actor John James, who portrayed President Joe Biden in the film My Son Hunter, considered in an interview on Monday’s edition of the Breitbart News Daily podcast with Alex Marlow whether or not the president had cunningly cultivated a faux public persona of being foolish across his years in politics.
Marlow expressed caution against what he described as broad public underestimation of Biden’s capabilities.
“I think it’s very lazy for all of us on the right to just act like [Joe Biden] is just some big dope,” he stated. “If he’s a big dope, how does he maintain power for 45, 50 years in this country?”
James concurred, “Thank you. That’s exactly what I said to my son. He’s no dope. He was the youngest senator at the time – 31 – when he went into politics. He was touted as the next John Kennedy back in his early days in the Senate.”
“He was a good-looking guy, charismatic, got up there with the people,” James recalled of Biden in his prime years. “He’s no dummy. He is no dummy. He’s dumb like a fox, now, and part of me wonders whether or not he’s an actor, as well, and he’s a smart man. You don’t get to be President of the United States if you don’t have something in between your ears.”
James described the production of My Son Hunter as a rebellious endeavor in the context of Hollywood’s partisan and left-wing politics and those of the broader filmmaking industry.
He stated, “When I was a kid, we used to say, ‘Question authority.’ That was back in the 70s, and that was kind of a hippy thing – ‘question authority’ – and here today, we don’t have that. [Today], ‘It’s my way or the highway,’ and … we felt like kind of a band of gypsies, and it was an odd feeling, just us doing this film, that we don’t know where this is going to take us.”
