'Twin Peaks' Cast -- Then & Now!

Even though he voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary.

David Lynch may have voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 democratic primary, but he's got some admiration for President Donald Trump, too.

The reclusive "Twin Peaks" creator told The Guardian in a new interview published this weekend that he thinks the 45th President of the United States may ultimately end up being remembered as one of the best.

"He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much," Lynch said. "No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way."

He added, "Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done. Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this."

Though, it doesn't sound like he's paying very close attention to every political move Trump is making. In fact, Lynch can't even exactly recall who he voted for in the 2016 general election. Rory Carroll -- the author of the Guardian piece -- wrote, "He voted for Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary and thinks – he’s not sure – he voted Libertarian in the presidential election."

"I am not really a political person, but I really like the freedom to do what you want to do," Lynch said.

Lynch, who rarely talks to the press, is promoting his new memoir, "Room to Dream," in wake of "Twin Peaks: The Return" stunning blowing away most viewers and critics last year, garnering a 94 percent approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes.

While chatting with Carroll, he did discredit a wild fan theory that the last two parts of the revival season should be watched simultaneously on two screens.

"Yeah, I heard that. It’s bullshit," Lynch said. "See, it’s beautiful that someone came up with this. You could double-expose scenes in lots of films and it could conjure some fantastic thing."

Lynch also has an impressive filmography, having been nominated for four Oscars for three of his most memorable movies, "The Elephant Man," "Blue Velvet" and "Mulholland Dr." But his fans shouldn't expect many more, if any at all.

"I would not make a feature film in today’s world because the kind of films I make couldn’t be on the big screen for very long," he said.

At least he's still interested in making more television.
