The Oscar-winning actor as of late sat down for a meeting with the BBC’s Andrew Marr, who inquired as to whether the “cultural elite” ought to ease up on President Trump.
Mr. Marr stated, “Every single American actor or archetype who comes over to London dumps on Trump. You all completely hate him. Do you think it’s time that maybe Hollywood and the cultural elite of America gave this guy a break?”
“Well, they don’t have a choice now,” Mr. McConaughey reacted. “He’s our president. It’s very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration in time that we’ve ever had. At the same time, it’s time for us to embrace — shake hands with this fact and be constructive with him over the next four years.”
“Even those who most strongly may disagree with his principles or things he’s said and done, which is another thing — we’ll see what he does compared to what he had said — no matter how much you even disagreed along the way, it’s time to think about how constructive can you be. Because he’s out president for the next four years, at least. President of the United States.”
