Former Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston had some…. interesting thoughts… on President Trump‘s critics.
“President Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office, and I’ve been very open about that. That being said, he is the president.”
He goes on to add..
“If he fails, the country is in jeopardy. It would be egotistical for anyone to say, ‘I hope he fails,’” Cranston explained. “To that person I would say, f— you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?”
Cranston, star of the new film, “Last Flag Flying,” added that he wants Trump to succeed.
“I honestly do. … And if you’ve got a good idea that helps the country, oh man, I’m gonna support you.”
Hmmmm. Several counterpoints to that argument. Number one: Bryan Cranston is a wealthy, white, CIS man so Trump’s policies and rhetoric have no negative impact on him. Number two, if Trump SUCCEEDS, we’re all still fucked, so…. why would we want THAT? We don’t WANT his radical right-wing, pro-corporate, pro-white supremacist, anti-LGBTQ, anti-women, anti poor-and-middle class agenda to succeed. That would be insane. The argument that “Well, he’s the president, let’s support him, and see how that works out” is completely why we’re in this mess in the first place! LETHARGY AND COMPLACENCY ARE THE REAL ENEMY HERE! REVOLT! RISE UP! TEAR DOWN THE REPUBLICAN ESTABLISHMENT! TRUMP’S FAILURE IS AMERICA’S SUCCESS! BOO, BRYAN CRANSTON!
