Director David Lynch said President Donald Trump could possibly go down in history as one of the greatest presidents because of how he’s disrupted the political system.
Lynch, who is widely known for his work on the television series “Twin Peaks,” told The Guardian that he voted for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) during the 2016 Democratic primary elections.
Ahead of the primary, Lynch tweeted three times about Sanders, calling him a candidate who is “for the people” and encouraging Californians to vote for him.
Dear Twtter Friends,

However, during the presidential election, he thinks but isn’t certain that he voted for a Libertarian candidate.
“I am not really a political person, but I really like the freedom to do what you want to do,” he explained.

“He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much,” he explained.
Lynch added, “No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way,” and he told The Guardian that despite Trump’s personal performance, he’s making lasting waves.
“Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done. Like children, they are,” he said. “Trump has shown all this.”
