Film director and far-left activist Rob Reiner believes a “breathtaking” number of Americans support the “lying racist criminal” of President Donald Trump.

Posting his rant to Twitter and while never saying the president’s name, Reiner argued that despite his large base of support, Trump supporters still remain in the minority.

“There has always been racism. There has always been ignorance,” the When Harry Met Sally director said. “There have always been people subject to the lure of a cult. The sheer volume of Americans who willingly follow this Lying Racist Criminal is breathtaking. But they are still the minority. We will win.”

It is not the first time that the 72-year-old filmmaker, who takes to Twitter practically every day to rant and rave about Trump and the current administration, has complained about the behavior of his fellow Americans.

In July, Reiner declared that Trump’s supporters are racist, presumably including the millions of black and ethnic minorities who support his agenda.

“The President of the United States is a racist. He’s made it abundantly clear his re-election is based on white nationalism,” the Hollywood director said at the time. “If you support him, there can be no distinction between you being a racist and a racist enabler. They are the same.”

In March, Reiner also described Trump’s supporters as “insidious,” declaring that they condone his so-called belief in “white supremacy.”

“The President of the United States is a racist. He supports and promotes white supremacy & white nationalism,” he wrote. “If you are part of this insidious cult, you condone that. Period.”
