‘Donald Trump Criticized as One of Worst Public Speakers by ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Star Ian McKellen

Renowned actor Ian McKellen, known for his iconic role as Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, has openly criticized US President Donald Trump’s speaking abilities. McKellen described Trump as “one of the worst public speakers there has ever been,” in an interview with The Times of London.

The 85-year-old actor expressed his astonishment at Trump’s lackluster oratory skills, stating that he found the presidential hopeful to be “an absolute bewilderment.” McKellen highlighted the absence of powerful orators in today’s political landscape, reminiscing about witnessing great speakers like Aneurin Bevan during his youth.

Despite enjoying a successful career spanning over six decades, McKellen remains selective about his projects, acknowledging the importance of choosing scripts wisely.
