Famed director Spike Lee is no longer confident that President Obama will be reelected.
“This thing is not a lock,” said Lee in a recent interview with GQ magazine.
“It is not a lock that President Obama is getting a second term and people have to really rekindle the enthusiasm that we had the first time."
Lee, who hosted a fundraiser for Obama in January, saw the light after meeting with a higher up within the Obama administration.
“I can't say to all the people that are unhappy with him that they're racist people,” Lee said of Obama’s critics. “People ain't got jobs, people are hurting. So I don't care what color you are, if people are out of work, it's tough. And then when you're the first African American president, that's not helping either.”
