Matthew McConaughey came to Trump’s defense and tells the rest of Hollywood to support our new President

Last week, McConaughey engaged into an interview with a British talk show and spoke of his latest film Gold. Out of the blue, questions on Trump began arising.
“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 began, according to IJ Review.
“So, every single American actor or artsy type who comes over to London dumps on Trump,” the Oscar winning actor 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?”
And he didn’t stop there, either:
“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.
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,” McConaughey concluded.
Imagine the faces of the Liberals when watching this interview. It is unlikely to have a celebrity this outspoken in favor of Trump, so this must be killing them for sure!
How do you feel about McConaughey’s statement?
