Hollywood actor Matt Damon said President Obama is being bullied, and the American public should give him a little leeway — he’s only trying to bolster his manhood.

Mr. Obama is being unfairly pressured into making unpopular political decision — and he’s struggling, especially since he doesn’t have a military background, Mr. Damon said, the New Republic reported.

Some of Mr. Obama’s recent challenges: Obamacare and the Edward Snowden spy scandal, Mr. Damon said.

But he’s not to blame — and the American public should cut him some slack, the actor said, the New Republic reported.

Mr. Damon said in the Guardian Weekend magazine: “It just seems to have taken this weird, Orewellian turn. It’s surreal. I don’t know where we are now … I think it’s tough for guys who weren’t in the military. One, their manhood is kind of challenged on some level, I imagine, and they allow themselves to get bullied. And two, they’re just politically afraid of either looking soft or looking incompetent, so they overcompensate.”
