President Donald Trump put his critics on notice in a new video he posted to Truth Social. The video features a series of video clips of Trump set to audio of this Christopher Walken monologue. The monologue is from the 2002 film Poolhall Junkies.
The film also features Alison Eastwood, Michael Rosenbaum, Rick Schroder, Rod Steiger (in his final film role), Chazz Palminteri, and Christopher Walken. It is the story of a pool hustler who is opposed by his former mentor, with a new prodigy, in a climactic big-stakes nine-ball match.
Walken says in the video: “You got this lion. He’s the king of the jungle, huge mane out to here. He’s laying under a tree, in the middle of Africa. He’s so big, it’s so hot. He doesn’t want to move.
“Now the little lions come, they start messing with him. Biting his tail, biting his ears. He doesn’t do anything.
“The lioness, she starts messing with him. Coming over, making trouble. Still nothing.
“Now the other animals, they notice this.
“They start to move in.
“The jackals; hyenas.
“They’re barking at him, laughing at him.
“They nip his toes, and eat the food that’s in his domain.
“They do this, then they get closer and closer, bolder and bolder.
“Till one day, that lion gets up and tears the sh*t out of everybody.
“Runs like the wind, eats everything in his path.
“Cause every once in a while, the lion has to show the jackals, who he is.”
