At Logan Presser, Patrick Stewart Goes Off on Breakfast (Brexit)

Logan director James Mangold, and actors Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen and Hugh Jackman

I like Patrick Stewart.

As you'll see in the short video, Stewart made a funny Freudian flub, but he acknowledged and recovered from it with wit and charm.

But is a press conference for the new X-Men movie really the place to go off on an anti-Brexit rant? And do we really need to know that Stewart and some of the other principles in Logan believe their film can be interpreted as a subtle rebuke to nationalism or Donald Trump or whatever?

I mean, there was a child there (Dafne Keen). Is this how grownups behave?

The left believes everything is about politics. Or rather, they think they have a sacred duty to impose their politics on anyone at any time. It's not merely that they're wrong.

It's that it's so bloody boring.

Here's that short part of the press conference. Stewart begins speaking at about 0:30. Following that, and just for the fun of it, I've also included a very silly Next Generation spoof song that A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics put up yesterday. You either like Pogo or you don't.
