Trump narcissist no attention span: Cleese

Press Association logoPress Association 10/10/2016

Veteran English actor John Cleese has labelled US presidential candidate Donald Trump a "narcissist with no attention span" and says the US election is the "worst" political situation the world has ever seen.

The 76-year-old, who stars as the voice of King Gristle in DreamWorks' latest animation Trolls, describes himself as "cheerful and happy" thanks to his lovely wife Jennifer Wade.

But he's not so positive when talking global politics: "I'm more relaxed now but if I look at the world, I don't think it's ever been in a worse situation. I look at what's going on and there isn't much to be cheerful about.

"I look at Trump, and I see a narcissist, with no attention span, who doesn't have clear ideas about anything and makes it all up as he goes along."

Cleese sees no fault in the UK's vote to leave the European Union.

"I don't think Brexit was a mistake, myself. I'm rather delighted that all these forecasts of absolute doom and destruction have turned out, at this point, not to have been real".
