Rare are the celebrities in Hollywood that would dare to talk about President Trump in a somewhat encouraging way. What’s even more rare is the fact that someone will dare to admit that out loud without fearing the backlash from liberal colleagues and peers. It seems that actor Matthew McConaughey is not afraid to open up when it comes to his country, its well-being and the four years ahead of us, with Trump’s governing in mind.
Matthew gave an interview for ChannelFi, and while discussing his film “Gold,” he spoke of what America will look under Trump.
“For quite a lot of this film, I sort of thought ‘this is not Trump’s America, but small-time, central, redneck America sticking one up to the snotty East Coast elites,’ as it were,” the journalist began the interview.
“Stickin’ it to the man, for sure,” McConaughey said. “I mean, it’s an underdog story. This is the guy that nobody bets on. This is like millions of people, if not billions, who get out of bed everyday, and don’t have a ticket to the American Dream. That are going to have to hustle their way in the backdoor, the sidedoor, or come down the chimney, and be an entrepreneur, and make it their own way—by hook or by crook.”
He didn’t stop there.
“So, every single American actor or artsy type who comes over to London dumps on Trump. You all completely hate him. Do you think it’s time maybe Hollywood and the culture elite in America gave this guy a break?” the interviewer asked.
This is where the hammer was dropped.
“Well, they don’t have a choice now. He’s our president. And, it’s very dynamic and as divisive of an Inauguration and time as we’ve had. At the same time, it’s time for us to embrace and shake hands with this fact. And be constructive with him over the next four years.
So anyone, even those who may strongly disagree with his principles or things he’s said and done — and that’s another thing, we’ll see what he does compares to what he has said — no matter how much you even disagreed along the way, it’s time to think about how constructive can you be.”
He finished in a semi-liberal fashion.
“’Cause he’s our president for the next four years, at least, the President of the United States.”
Hollywood could definitely learn a thing or two from Matthew McConaughey about how to show respect for your country and the man who is trying to improve it.
