Do US President Donald Trump and Pennywise have anything in common? The horrifying clown from Stephen King’s It lurks in sewers and give nightmares to children. The creepy clown is a killer – the evilest of all.
To director Andy Muschietti, who has helmed the two-part adaptation of Stephen King’s It, Pennywise is very similar to US President Donald Trump.
In an interview with AFP, Andy commented on Pennywise, while taking a dig at the US President Donald Trump. Comparing King’s iconic villain to Trump, Muschietti stated, “He does exactly what the clown does, you know?,” while adding, “The clown is trying to divide the ‘Losers’ all the time, to turn them against them(selves) and make them weaker. That’s how he conquers, he tries to conquer them and destroy them.” This is indeed a strong statement made by Andy and not the first time a prominent celebrity has targeted Donald Trump.
IT: Chapter 2 is slated to release in India on September 6, 2019.
