Scottish actor David Tennant just needed a few words to absolutely roast Donald Trump on British television over the weekend.
The actor, best known as the tenth Doctor on Doctor Who, among other notable roles such as Barty Crouch Jr. in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Kilgrave in Jessica Jones, was recently a guest on The Last Leg, a British late night show hosted by Adam Hills, Alex Brooker, and Josh Widdicombe.
At one point in the interview, Tennant addressed Trump’s claims that Scotland loves him, and sent the President a message on behalf of his home country:
“He was saying…the people in London are protesting but up in Scotland they really like me. Can I just say, on behalf of the Scottish nation, we fucking don’t.”

Hearing David Tennant passionately expressing his dislike for that numpty Trump on National TV just makes me like him that bit more. #TheLastLeg

Trump is still lowering the bar. I don’t get it, he doesn’t talk like anyone with a crumb of sanity, he outright lies and not in a subtly hard to prove way. David Tennant’s right

Thank you David Tennant for saying it like it really is. Sorry Adam, but Trump isn’t charming or funny, like, ever. #TheLastLeg

Consider the mic dropped.

It’s just math, really.
David Tennant > Donald Trump.

Tennant passionately spoke out about how “horrifying” he feels the Trump administration is, and how he hopes the mid-term elections put Democrats back in power.

It was nice to hear Tennant say what many of us were thinking.
