'Twin Peaks' Creator David Lynch Believes Trump Could Be 'One Of The Greatest Presidents In History' 😳

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

Filmmaker David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet) told The Guardian that although he isn't very political (must be nice) he thinks there is a chance that President Donald Trump could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history. Lynch didn't say it was because Trump is a great leader or because he introduced great policy. It was more about his ability to stir the pot and cause disruption. 

 Lynch said:

I am not really a political person, but I really like the freedom to do what you want to do. [Trump] could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much. No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.
Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done. Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.

Although Lynch did not vote for Trump, he does think his presidency opens the door for more outsiders to take a place in government. That's not such a bad thing.

Although what Lynch said wasn't exactly glowing praise for Trump, the president, still ran with it.
