Hollywood’s limousine liberals have taken it upon themselves to try and shepherd the hearts and minds of the less important than themselves. They bestow on us on us their infinite wisdom using whatever platform they possibly can, to try and change the minds of the inconsequential middle class.
However, November’s presidential election shows the country that we are neither inconsequential or easily swayed by glitz and glamor, trying to masquerade as common sense. We, middle Americans still have to balance our checkbook every day, and we don’t have bodyguards to save us from the Mexican Drug cartel that Hollywood thinks should be let to run free in our country.
In a recent interview with ChannelFi about his upcoming film ‘Gold,’ Matthew McConaughey was asked about his thoughts on America today and the current President.
Via American News:
“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 interviewer asked McConaughey.
“Stickin’ it to the man, for sure,” McConaughey responded. “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 every day and don’t have a ticket to the American Dream. That are going to have to hustle their way in the back door, the side door, or come down the chimney, and be an entrepreneur, and make it their own way—by hook or by crook.”
“Every single American actor or artsy type who comes over to London dumps on Trump,” he continued. “You all completely hate him. Do you think it’s time maybe Hollywood and the culture elite in America gave this guy a break? 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.”
McConaughey makes an excellent point. Love him or hate him, this guy is steering the ship for the next 4 years, so let’s try and make as much progress as possible during that time. Unfortunately, the ever tolerant liberal robots in Hollywood want nothing to do with the tall Texan after his common sense comments. I guess getting along is more something they preach than practice.
