GQ Magazine: Spike Lee Is Still Doing the Right Thing

Spike Lee talks to GQ about the Haiti earthquake, the followup to his Emmy-winning HBO documentary about Katrina, and why he’s (slightly) miffed at Obama

What should Obama have done differently about the spill?
Before this catastrophe, our president was in favor of offshore drilling. And when this thing happened, he backtracked real quick.
[pauses] I don’t know why Obama ever trusted these BP guys! They would lie to their mothers. Hayward does not give a fuck. The thing we don’t talk about is that eleven Americans lost their lives and it took seven weeks to invite their families to the White House. I’m not trying to bash my man, but that’s a long time.
