Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey, currently promoting his role in the film Gold, thinks it’s time for Hollywood to “embrace” President Trump. In a recent interview, when the BBC’s Andrew Marr asked if the “cultural elite of America” should give Trump a “break,” McConaughey responded, “Well, they don’t have a choice now, he’s our President.” He added, “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.” McConaughey urged Trump’s critics to “see what he does compared to what he has said” during the campaign. The interview was taped two days after President Trump signed his executive order that bans immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries.
