(National Sentinel) State of the Union: The star of the hit TV series “Breaking Bad” has a message for anyone who says they want President Donald J. Trump to fail, and it’s not something you’d repeat in polite company.
“President Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office, and I’ve been very open about that,” Bryan Cranston said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Monday. “That being said, he is the president.
“If he fails, the country is in jeopardy. It would be egotistical for anyone to say, ‘I hope he fails,’” Cranston said. “To that person I would say, f— you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?”
The actor, who is currently promoting a Vietnam War-era movie “Last Flag Flying,” said he doesn’t want Trump to fail. “I don’t want him to fail,” Cranston argued. “I want him to succeed. I do. I honestly do.”
Those comments are the polar opposite of what Cranston said before the November election, when he claimed he would move to Canada if Trump beat Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.
But, in his interview, Cranston said regardless of political affiliations, he’ll support anyone with “a good idea.”
“If you’ve got a good idea that helps the country, oh man, I’m gonna support you,” Cranston said. “I don’t care if you’re a Republican and I’m a Democrat or whatever, I don’t care.”
Perhaps sensing the deep divisions within the country, Cranston added: “We’ve got to get away from this idea that our country is a political football, and someone with a different opinion is the enemy. Assume they love this country as much as you do, and there’s always room for improvement. How can we make it better?”
