In a recently-published Elle interview, We Bought A Zoo star Matt Damon says that “a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of this country, much better” than what we got with Barack Obama.

“If the Democrats think that they didn’t have a mandate…people are literally without any focus or leadership, just wandering out into the streets to yell right now because they are so pissed off,” Damon explains. “Imagine if they had a leader. I’ve talked to a lot of people who worked for Obama at the grassroots level. One of them said to me, ‘Never again…I will never be fooled again by a politician.”
