Matt Damon chatted with CNN's Piers Morgan to promote his new movie The Adjustment Bureau, and when the topic of conversation shifted to politics, the Oscar winner revealed that he is unhappy with the way the president is running the country.
Damon, a once vocal Obama supporter, added, "I really think he misinterpreted his mandate. A friend of mine said to me the other day, I thought it was a great line, 'I no longer hope for audacity.' He's doubled down on a lot of things, going back to education ... the idea that we're testing kids and we're tying teachers salaries to how kids are performing on tests, that kind of mechanized thinking has nothing to do with higher order. We're training them, not teaching them."
