House of Cards Star Kevin Spacey Mocks Donald Trump, Calls Him a ‘disease’
Kevin Spacey has ruthlessly mocked Donald Trump, describing him as a “disease” who hates “foreigners and reading.”
The House of Cards star was hosting an annual charity auction at the Cannes Film Festival when he took aim at the billionaire presidential hopeful.
He opened by telling the Cannes crowd regular attendee Sharon Stone couldn’t make it to the South of France because she was fighting another disease.
“The name of the disease is Donald Trump,” Spacey said to uncomfortable laughter.
“Foreign films contain two things Donald Trump hates the most: foreigners and reading,” he continued.
“I don’t think I could ever vote for a candidate who wasn’t in favor of separation of man and face,” Spacey said, referring to Trump’s chin.
“Donald Trump would probably love it here, because there are so many casinos to bankrupt,” he continued.
Spacey also went after other celebrities. “They forecast 30% chance of showers,” he said. “By that they meant Shia LaBeouf would actually take one.”
Then Spacey had Faye Dunaway join him onstage, where he turned his jacket inside out to play Bill Clinton. “I just want to tell you the state of the United States is a f*****g mess, since I left,” Spacey said as Clinton.
The barbed monologue was met with a mixed reaction from the upscale crowd of European VIPs.
The gala, now in its 23rd year that raises funds to fight HIV/AIDS.
