Obviously most of the Hollywood elites hate President Trump.
The vitriol that comes out of Hollywood against our President is disgusting, but they really don’t care.
But this Breaking Bad Star has a message for all those haters.
Fox News reports:
“Breaking Bad” actor Bryan Cranston, notably outspoken against then-candidate Donald Trump, recently changed his tone, calling out those who don’t support the current president.
“President Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office, and I’ve been very open about that,” Cranston said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter Monday. “That being said, he is the president.
“If he fails, the country is in jeopardy. It would be egotistical for anyone to say, ‘I hope he fails,’” Cranston said.
“To that person I would say, f— you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?”
The actor, currently promoting Vietnam War-era movie “Last Flag Flying,” said he doesn’t want Trump to fail. “I don’t want him to fail,” Cranston argued. “I want him to succeed. I do. I honestly do.”
The actor’s comments mark an abrupt change from previous remarks he made about the president before he was elected. In October 2016, Cranston said he would move to Canada if Trump were elected to office.
However, in the interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cranston said regardless of political affiliations, he’ll support anyone with “a good idea.”
“If you’ve got a good idea that helps the country, oh man, I’m gonna support you,” Cranston said. “I don’t care if you’re a Republican and I’m a Democrat or whatever, I don’t care.”
He added: “We’ve got to get away from this idea that our country is a political football, and someone with a different opinion is the enemy.
Assume they love this country as much as you do, and there’s always room for improvement. How can we make it better?”
This may be the sanest thing a Hollywood elite has had to say about Donald Trump.
He admits that he didn’t vote for him, which is fine, but if we want to heal and grow as a nation, then the President shouldn’t have to deal with people that want him to fail.
It’s ludicrous to think that they would rather see our leader fail than succeed—because if he fails; we all fail.
It was a bold move by Cranston because his comments may end up costing him roles in Hollywood.
As Joy Villa, singer and Trump campaign advisory board member, said to Maria Bartiromo on Fox Business’ Mornings with Maria:
“I was hoping more people would come out this year because the president’s doing so well for the economy, small businesses, things are doing well.
So, for him to be brave enough to say, ‘listen, I didn’t like him, I didn’t vote for him, but I want him to do well,’ is really good, because if the president fails, America fails.
Oh, they’re going to bash him. I mean, you can’t even be slightly pro-Trump in those circles, I know. In Hollywood it’s ‘you hate Trump and you’re with the group.’
If you say, ‘well, let’s give him a chance,’ they shun you. So he may lose some jobs, even for saying something so conservative as that.”
Finally there is a levelheaded actor in Hollywood that isn’t just James Woods. If only more like him were willing come out and say the same thing.
