Oliver Stone says Bush bullies reporters at press conferencesSeptember 25th, 2008 - 2:14 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, September 25 (ANI): American filmmaker Oliver Stone thinks that President George W. Bush behaves like a bully during press conferences.
The director, whose biopic of the American leader W is scheduled for release in November, says that the presidents behaviour during question-answer sessions with reports seems to show that he is quite impatient.
He also says that the leader reveals his intimidating nature by giving certain journalists nicknames.
“Ever notice how impatient Bush is at press conferences with questions, like, What right do you have to ask me a question?. I would say he’’s a bully. It’’s classic bully syndrome. The nicknames, for instance, are bullying, Contactmusic quoted him as telling USA Today newspaper.
Stone, however, also chatted about how friendly Bush appeared to be while the former was researching his upcoming movie.
He revealed that Bush tried to remain impartial during shooting.
“Faith, family and friendship. You could argue he is a good born-again Christian. He has been good with his family. There’’s a scene where he goes to the hospital and talks to the soldiers, and we honestly looked at the stuff he said and did. We never went after him,” he added. (ANI)
