Trump Lawsuit Against Cannes Film Festival ‘The Apprentice’ Film, Alleged False Claims

Hollywood and it’s sidekick, the Cannes Film Festival.

The main source of the State’s propaganda.

So it should come as no surprise that they’ve released a hit piece in the form of a movie.

But the good news is that at least the Iranian Director Ali Abbasi and the Jewish writer Gabriel Sherman were able to set aside their countries differences to come together to slander Trump and make this ‘biopic’ film.

It’s a film that uses debunked myths trying to portray itself as a based on true events, starring Sebastian Stan as Donald Trump. (You may recognize him as Bucky Barnes / Winter Soldier in the Captain America movie series.)

This film is just begging to be sued.

But those that made this surely knew that was what would happen.

Seems like they didn’t care. They know the power of visual media, and if millions of undecided voter sees this, there’s a chance that a small percent will be swayed to vote against Trump.

So the film had its premiere at the 77th Cannes Film Festival on May 20, 2024.

And be sued they will.

Trump’s team is gearing up to take legal action against the creators of the new biopic film “The Apprentice,” alleging that the movie contains “blatantly false assertions.”

Spokesperson Steven Cheung, says they’re not pulling any punches and framed the situation as yet another instance of election interference.

The Hill reports:

Former President Trump’s reelection campaign plans to sue the filmmakers behind the new biopic film “The Apprentice,” which follows his early years in the real estate business, for including what it calls “blatantly false assertions.”

“We will be filing a lawsuit to address the blatantly false assertions from these pretend filmmakers,” Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said in a statement to The Hill. “This garbage is pure fiction which sensationalizes lies that have been long debunked. As with the illegal Biden Trials, this is election interference by Hollywood elites, who know that President Trump will retake the White House and beat their candidate of choice because nothing they have done has worked.”

“This ‘film’ is pure malicious defamation, should not see the light of day, and doesn’t even deserve a place in the straight-to-DVD section of a bargain bin at a soon-to-be-closed discount movie store, it belongs in a dumpster fire,” Cheung continued.

“The Apprentice,” directed by Ali Abbassi, premiered Monday at the Cannes Film Festival, where it reportedly received an eight-minute standing ovation. It stars Sebastian Stan as a then-New York real estate developer Trump and Jeremy Strong of “Succession” as the future president’s real-life former attorney and mentor Roy Cohn.

Reports quickly circulated following Monday’s premiere, claiming the film depicted Trump, his working relationship with Cohn and his relationship with his first wife, Ivana, in an unfavorable light.

At Monday’s premiere, Abbassi recalled, “When we did this movie, everyone said, ‘Why do you want to make a movie with Trump? You know, if you want to tell something about the world, do it in a nice way, in a metaphorical way.’”

But, he said to applause, “There is no nice, metaphorical way to deal with the rising wave of fascism. The messy way, the banal way, is only the way of dealing with this wave on its own terms, at its own level.”

“It’s not going to be pretty,” he added, “but I think the problem with the world is that the good people have been quiet for too long.”

Here’s the actor playing Donald Trump:

Funny how him and Chris Evans, that portray patriotic characters in their Marvel superhero movies are anti-America and anti-Trump in reality.
