Hollywood is liberal. I know, I know, that’s a blinding glimpse of the obvious.
It was obvious in Meryl Streep’s incoherent ramblings and it’s currently obvious because of all the opposition to Trump. Hollywood really doesn’t know what it’s talking about since they have no political knowledge outside of their privileged Hollywood bubble.
They don’t know anything about the common man or what it’s like to work 80 hour weeks to make sure there’s food on their families’ tables. This is why Hollywood is so detached and seems so unhinged when they talk about Trump.
Most of Hollywood is still “resisting” Trump, but one of the most respected actors in the whole sphere of influence is having a change of heart. Matthew McConaughey just told them all to shut the f**k up and live with it. Here’s the full interview.
During an interview with ChannelFi to promote his new film, Gold, McConaughey was asked if he thinks Hollywood had given Trump a chance to govern.
“Well, they don’t have a choice now. He’s our president,” the Oscar winner said. “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 said.
And he’s right. This is a direct shot at the rest of Hollywood to just shut up and accept the fact that Trump is our president now. Instead of protesting him, rioting against him, and calling for acts of violence against him and the federal government, why not talk to him, engage him, and try to make the country great again?
I’m sure that’s too much to ask of a bunch of liberal yahoos, but at least Matthew McConaughey is trying.
