Kelsey Grammer praises Donald Trump and slams 'bunch of clowns' in Washington
Kelsey Grammer says his support for conservative politicians has not affected his career in the vastly liberal Hollywood
Kelsey Grammer took to praising POTUS Donald Trump and blasted the "bunch of clowns" who have been running Washington DC. Grammer also added how his support for conservative politicians has not hampered his career in liberal-dominated Hollywood.
During an interview with PBS, Grammer shared, "I’m not aware of taking a hit for it [in my career] but now, certainly passions run high, and certainly he has touched on an extraordinarily passionate response. I don't know if it's as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be." He was also asked about Trump "disrupting the fabric" of Washington and responded saying, "Well I think fabric being disrupted is a good thing."
He further added, "I don’t think Washington didn't do us any favors for the last 50, 60 years, I think they’ve all been sort of the same party, the same bunch of clowns, the same bunch of really unpleasant people. And I don’t think they’ve been helping anybody but themselves."
In December 2017, Grammer spoke to BBC Radio 4 and said supporting the Republican Party in Hollywood was equivalent of having a "target on your back". He said, "I’m respected in the industry," before adding, "I am probably reviled in some of the back channels." He was also asked whether he would ever consider running for office to which he responded saying, "I don’t think so, it’s just too nasty now."
"I guess you could always rise above it, but just don’t think it’s really cut out for me anymore," he continued. In a response to Trump, Grammer said, "I think he’s doing what he said he was going to do. He’s a bit of a loudmouth, and he does shake things up, he promised a few things that I thought, 'maybe he can get that done, maybe he can’t get that done'."
"Donald Trump just won in a way, in a world where nobody thought he would. And so there’s just anger – it’s filled with anger now," Grammer shared. Grammer is presently in the U.K. and is starring in 'Man of La Mancha' in London. The show is on a six-week run at the London Coliseum.
