Dan Snyder is stunned to learn that the film he helped finance about Donald Trump and Roy Cohn turned out to be less than flattering to his idol the Donald:

Ali Abbasi’s The Apprentice, which stars Sebastian Stan as a young Donald Trump opposite Jeremy Strong’s Roy Cohn, [awesome choice, can’t wait to see this –ed.] is not expected to be a positive portrayal of Trump. You might infer this from the fact that it’s directed by an acclaimed international auteur, or that it’s premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, or maybe that it’s about Trump and Cohn. As the film makes its grand debut on the Croisette, however, this was apparently news to one person involved in its production: billionaire former NFL owner Dan Snyder, a Trump ally whose production company, Kinematics, helped fund the film.

Snyder’s 24-year stewardship of the team now known as the Washington Commanders was filled with allegations of mismanagement and sexual misconduct, earning him a reputation as the worst owner in pro sports. Per Variety, his foray into film producing has not gone much better. The trade reports that Snyder, who donated over $1 million to Trump’s inauguration in 2017, financed the film “under the impression that it was a flattering portrayal of the 45th president.” After seeing an early cut of The Apprentice in February, Snyder allegedly attempted to fight the release of the film, which reportedly includes a “violent” and “uncomfortable” scene between Trump and his wife Ivana, played by Maria Bakalova.

Surprised to see this level of misjudgment from the guy who hired Jim Zorn and Jay Gruden as head coaches.
