Samuel L. Jackson had some harsh words for President Obama during an interview with Playboy, although he’s been a supporter of the president in the past.
The actor slammed President Obama for trying to come off as a “common man” instead of a leader, saying he needs to pronounce his words and act like our president.
“Be a leader. Be f-cking presidential,” he told Playboy.
He continued, “Look, I grew up in a society where I could say ‘It ain’t’ or ‘What it be’ to my friends. But when I’m out presenting myself to the world as me, who graduated from college, who had family who cared about me, who has a well-read background, I fucking conjugate.”
Back in September of last year, Jackson appeared in a pro-Obama ad, telling voters they needed to “wake the f--- up” and vote for Obama for re-election.
“We’re all on our own if Romney has his way,” he said in the video. “He’s against safety nets. If you fall, tough luck. So I strongly suggest you WAKE THE **** Up!”
Although he donated $2,500 to Obama's re-election campaign, it seems the Pulp Fiction star has lost some respect for the president since then.
