Donald Trump is the President-elect, and the response from celebrities has been nothing less than hilarious. Many found themselves in tears on election night – among them being Miley Cyrus, Chelsea Handler, and many others.
I’m not going to lie: it feels good to watch.
After being told for the past year how inevitable a Hillary Presidency is, and that only who would dare oppose her is a racist, sexist, misogynist, xenophobic homophone, it’s nice to give a middle finger to the liberal media.
But not all are being sour. Even some of those who criticized Trump during his campaign have vowed to give him a chance, among the notable ones being Mark Cuban, Dave Chappelle, and even President Barack Obama, who realizes that if Trump succeeds, America succeeds.
Now, someone who you’d never imagine was a Trump supporter is coming out in support of him. In the liberal world of Hollywood, it’s considered extremely risky to say anything positive about president-elect Donald Trump. That’s why it came as a surprise this week when Denzel Washington risked his career by announcing that he is a Trump supporter.
As American News reported:
While the rest of liberal Hollywood is still trying to demonize Donald Trump, Denzel Washington is speaking out in favor of the president-elect.
“We need more and more jobs,” Washington recently commented. “He’s hired more employees, more people, than anyone I know in the world.”
This is not the first time the Hollywood star has spoken out against his peers. He caught heat from fellow actors when he called President Obama’s agenda “anti-Christian.” Washington has been very vocal about his own religious beliefs, which obviously don’t align with Obama’s attempts to do away with traditional values.
Washington was the son of a preacher and spent the majority of his time in the church, but transformed into a rebellious teenager. After what Washington calls a “personal face along with God,” he returned to the church in his twenties.
“I had this particular tremendous physical and spiritual experience,” Washington describes.
His devotion and willingness to speak his own mind is a shock to liberal Hollywood, but we applaud him for speaking the truth.
Good for him.
Think this will get him in any trouble? Giving how all the Republicans in Hollywood seems to be friends, if anything, I think this support for The Donald gives him a high chance of being cast in the next Expendables movie.
