President Donald Trump is “mentally unfit” to be president, Rob Reiner told Variety at the Dubai International Film Festival. But the director fears that the American press is failing to hold the Trump administration accountable for its actions.

“Donald Trump is the single most unqualified human being to ever assume the presidency of the United States. He is mentally unfit. Not only does he not understand how government works, he has no interest in trying to find out how it works,” Reiner said, when asked to compare Trump with President Lyndon B. Johnson, who was the subject of his biopic “LBJ.”
