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.)
