(Newser) – Matt Damon's love affair with President Obama, it seems, is over. "He broke up with me," the actor and former big Obama supporter tells BET. "There are a lot of things that I really question: the legality of the drone strikes, these NSA revelations. Jimmy Carter came out and said we don’t live in a democracy. That’s a little intense when an ex-president says that," Damon says, via Politico. "He’s got some explaining to do—particularly for a constitutional law professor." (In other celebs-and-Obama news, the president recently ragged on Kanye West.)

You still got me, Matt. I look to you for being a strong political mind who people listen to.

Who is Matt Damon? A guy who reads words to a camera?

Obummer also declared this is no longer a Christian Nation. Is he hoping it will become a muslim nation, because muslims are so peaceful.
