Actor Steven Seagal, a vocal fan of Vladimir Putin and a Russian citizen, was asked Wednesday to offer his views on Donald Trump‘s presidency on Good Morning Britain. Because, obviously, when you need an expert to discuss the small matter of what the hell is going on in America, you think, “Oh yeah, let’s get Steven Seagal! He’ll know!”
The interview is a mess, with Seagal calling NFL players kneeling during the national anthem—a way to protest police brutality and oppression of people of color—”outrageous.”
“I think it’s a joke,” he said. “I think it’s disgusting.”
The internet was quick to mock the interview.

It was also hard not to notice that he looked like a villain in an action movie. Maybe one that he would star in.
