Matthew McConaughey’s Epic Take on Hysterical Anti-Trump Hollywood

In an interview posted online on Sunday, actor Matthew McConaughey perfectly takes on hysterical anti-Trump Hollywood, laying out their unfathomable reality: “[Trump’s] our president… it’s time for us to embrace and shake hands with this fact. And be constructive with him over the next four years,” boldly asserts the actor.

And that’s just one of the unexpected highlights from McConaughey.

The actor was being interview by Andrew Marr for his new film “Gold,” a fittingly titled flick about an American man who chases down a “literal dream.” Here’s how the exchange goes down:

“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,” says the interviewer.

“Stickin’ it to the man, for sure,” replies the “Gold” star. “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 everyday, and don’t have a ticket to the American Dream. That are going to have to hustle their way in the backdoor, the sidedoor, or come down the chimney, and be an entrepreneur, and make it their own way—by hook or by crook.”

Marr continues to dig at temper tantrum-filled (see: Lena Dunham, Meryl Streep, Joy Behar, Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna, etc.) elitist anti-Trump Hollywood: “So, every single American actor or artsy type who comes over to London dumps on Trump. You all completely hate him. Do you think it’s time maybe Hollywood and the culture elite in America gave this guy a break?” he asks the actor.

“Well, they don’t have a choice now,” McConaughey stunningly replies. “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. So anyone, even those who may strongly disagree with his principles or things he’s said and done — and that’s another thing, we’ll see what he does compares to what he has said — no matter how much you even disagreed along the way, it’s time to think about how constructive can you be… ‘Cause he’s our president for the next four years, at least, the President of the United States.”

Alright, alright, alright.
