Watching most celebrities trying to take on politics is kind of like watching a poodle become a seeing eye dog. Technically still a dog, but maybe should depend on it’s looks more than it’s strength and brains for its kibble. There’s a similar humorous affect when these limousine liberals try to throw their weight around and influence elections and public opinion. Unfortunately though, many still take them seriously.
Captin Kirk (aka William Shatner) isn’t having it though. Shatner is going where (almost) no man has gone before and is keeping his political opinions to himself while in Hollywood. The Canadian-born actor says that he “won’t do anything that might get me deported”.
Speaking with the outlet in an interview published Monday, Shatner made it clear that he did not add his name to an open letter last year denouncing Trump’s candidacy.
As the Beast reporter attempted, again, to get Shatner to dish on Trump, the actor made it clear that he wasn’t willing to pan the president.
“I don’t want to discuss Trump or [George] Takei,” Shatner said, adding: “Listen, I’m Canadian and I’m apolitical. I love America. I consider myself a guest here.”
Shatner has once again won the no-win scenario. Liberals should love him because he’s an immigrant and conservatives can still love him because he seems to have immigrated legally and kept his immigrant opinions to himself. A proper respect for deportation is really all we’re looking for. So thanks, Captin Kirk; for respecting the rules and immigrating the right way.
And just in case you were interested:
(Breitbart)[Shatner] also revealed that while he and Abrams have discussed him having a role in the rebooted Star Trek film franchise, the director hasn’t extended the offer.
“I’ve met with J.J. Abrams, who seems to be running the film franchise now,” Shatner said. “Though I’ve repeatedly expressed my interest in being in one of the Star Trek movies they seem to have no interest in bringing back old Captain James T. Kirk.”
May we all live long and prosper in a land of lower taxes, fewer politically charged celebrities and law abiding immigrants (oh, and if we’re lucky, a Star Trek reboot).
