Spike Lee, the famous director, on Thursday wondered aloud during an interview on CNN if the U.S. is headed for a second civil war.
Lee told Anderson Cooper, the network’s MyPillow attack dog, that the country could descend even further if President Trump loses the 2020 election and refuses to leave the office.
The director echoed one of the key conspiracy theories being peddled by Democrats this year. They claim that it will take the 101 Airborne to remove Trump from the Oval Office. Lee likely missed the recent interviews that show Democrats are the ones who seem intent on disregarding the election results.

Hillary Clinton, who lost to Trump in 2016, said in an interview that was partially aired earlier this week that Joe Biden “should not concede under any circumstances.”
Lee asked Cooper, “Anderson, are we coming to a civil war? The next civil war in the United States of America. I ask you that question.”
Trump concluded the Republican National Convention on Thursday night where he made the case for his reelection by discrediting Biden’s 47-year career in public office. Trump described himself as the law-and-order candidate. But the assault on guests by protesters after the event seemed to take center stage.
Sen. Rand Paul and his wife were accosted by protesters and other guests harassed. The Metropolitan Police made eight arrests stemming from violent clashes in the city.
Lee was critical of the Kenosha Police and said it was wrong that Jacob Blake, who was shot in the back seven times, was allegedly handcuffed to his hospital bed. There was a warrant for Blake’s arrest and a knife was allegedly recovered from the scene, reports said.
Lee also criticized the treatment of Kyle Rittenhouse, the 17-year-old accused of killing two protesters. He pointed to how responding police officers passed Rittenhouse, who was armed, right after the shooting.
“Do you think that armed vehicles and jeeps are going to ride right—right by a black man? I’m laughing because it’s so crazy,” Lee said.
Rittenhouse has gained support among conservatives who say videos from the unrest show Rittenhouse was defending himself from the attacking mob, one of whom appeared to be armed himself.
Todd Starnes, the host of the “Todd Starnes Show,” has been critical of the unrest taking place in the streets and the government’s response to protect property in these cities. Businessowners have been forced to defend their businesses on their own.
“ENOUGH TALK!” Starnes tweeted. “Invoke the Insurrection Act and put down this rebellion @realdonaldtrump.”
