‘What’s happening, Mitt’: Spike Lee on the time he met Romney

Spike Lee is an unabashed supporter of President Barack Obama's re-election this fall. But in an interview with New York Magazine's Will Leitch, the New York filmmaker skips an opportunity to bash Mitt Romney and instead recounts a story about the time he randomly met the future Republican nominee at an airport:

What do you think of Romney?
You know what's funny? I met him in an airport, Reagan National Airport, and we said hello. It was, like, two, three years ago. I was just in D.C. and he was there and he said, "What's up, Spike?" and I said, "What's happening, Mitt?" We were in line getting something to eat. So I said what's up and shook hands. I think it is going to be very, very, very close.
