Fresh off a presidential pardon, right-wing author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza is teasing his next project, which is — surprise, surprise — a pro-Donald Trump movie titled Death of a Nation coming to theaters on August 12.
D’Souza, who — aside from his historically inaccurate movies — is known for describing Barack Obama as “ghetto” and a “gay Muslim”, comparing Michelle Obama to a man, and for mocking children who survived a mass shooting, was pardoned by Trump last week for pleading guilty to the illegal use of straw donors in a 2014 New York State Senate campaign.
However, D’Souza is already playing defense against those who suggest his upcoming pro-Trump film has anything to do with Trump pardoning him.
“We’ve been working on the film for more than a year and commissioned the artwork two months ago. Trump had no inkling of the art or theme of the movie when he pardoned me,” D’Souza said to the Hollywood Reporter. “The left is screaming about my pardon more than all of Trump’s other pardons put together.”
As for the movie itself, it apparently attempts to draw a comparison between Trump — the president who defended the neo-Nazis in Charlottesville as “very fine people,” promoted the racist Obama “birther” conspiracy, and has been endorsed by white supremacists everywhere — and Abraham Lincoln. You know, the president best known for abolishing slavery in America.liberals “staged” last year’s Charlottesville white supremacist rally, so the absurdity of his next film should come as a surprise to no one.
