Matt Damon to President Obama: Grow a Pair!

by at . Comments

Matt Damon is at it again. Rekindling one of our favorite on/off A-list celebrity feuds, the actor is calling out President Barack Obama for his lack of balls.

His words.

The We Bought a Zoo star discussed his views on Obama during an interview with Elle, lambasting the President's perceived leadership shortcomings.

"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.'"

"You know, a one-term president with some balls who actually got stuff done would have been, in the long run of the country, much better."

Ouch. But it continues ...

"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're pissed off," he says. "Just imagine if they had a leader."

Rough. Not the first time he's called out Barack, or likely the last, although him squaring off against a Republican next year might shift Matt's perspective.

In May, Obama used some of Damon's previous comments as material for his speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in Washington, D.C. (below).

"I've even let down my key core constituency: movie stars. Just the other day, Matt Damon - I love Matt Damon, love the guy - Matt Damon said he is disappointed in my performance. Well, Matt, I just saw The Adjustment Bureau, so, right back atcha, buddy."

It seems like We Bought a Zoo, the actor's latest film, is getting decent reviews, so we can't wait to see what the president's comeback is this time.

Damon, for his part, says he will not run for the White House - not that he hasn't been asked. Michael Moore has pushed for this, as a matter of fact.

Your thoughts: Damon for President?
