It’s so nice to get away from the vitriol and hate that the left has been dumping on America for the last few weeks and to see one of the cultural elite, in this case actor Matthew McConaughey, say something constructive and edifying.
While stars like Debra Messing, Sarah Silverman, Madonna, Ashley Judd, Scarlett Johansson, Judd Apatow and others have spent the last few days and weeks haranguing conservatives, spewing vitriol at the President, and condemning his supporters we would do well to remember that there are still good people who seek to mend fences in Hollywood.
In a recent interview with the BBC’s Andrew Marr, Matthew McConaughey argued that it was time for his Hollywood colleagues to move past their hate and anger and embrace our new President in an effort to move our nation forward “constructively.”
“Well, they don’t have a choice now, he’s our President. It’s very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time that we’ve ever 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… time to think about how constructive can you be because he’s our President for the next four years at least.”
