In an interview with Vanity Fair, talking about Donald Trump's election, Ava DuVernay said

It’s a different era of ineptitude and audacity and misogyny and ignorance that we haven’t experienced, I don’t think. But it’s not as if we haven’t been in times before where we have presidents who’ve gone in and done damage to the very freedoms that forward-thinking people have fought for. It’s not as if we’ve not stood on the edge of a time like this before. This is super-sized, like times 10. . . It’s happening, so the question is: Now what? My answer is not, ‘Well, give him a chance, see how it goes.’ My answer is not, ‘Let’s just support and wait ’til another four years goes by.’ My answer is to resist.
