“He doesn’t care about anyone but himself in a pathological way,” Apatow continued. “I don’t think he has any interest in helping people. He is just a bored rich man who has a lust for power.”

Here’s the rest of his statement:

“He has never shown any interest in charity or sacrificing for others during his entire life. I don’t believe he has suddenly woken up and decided he has concerns for our working class. He is a racist, narcissistic criminal who has always been willing to take every penny he can squeeze out of people, from Trump University to casinos to taking advantage of bankrupt people during the subprime mortgage meltdown. I hope he is soundly defeated.”
