Veteran actor Kelsey Grammer reiterated his support for President Donald Trump on Tuesday, arguing the way that he has shaken up the Washington establishment can only be a good thing.
In an interview with Christiane Amanpour, the Emmy winner, who is currently starring in “Man of La Mancha” on West End in London, opened up about if his career was affected by his politics and what he thinks about the current administration.
“I’m not aware of taking a [career] hit for it but now, certainly passions run high, and certainly he has touched on an extraordinarily passionate response,” Grammer said. “I don’t know if it’s as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be.”
Amanpour went on to press Grammer, asking whether he thinks the president is disrupting America’s “fabric,” to which he replied, “Well I think fabric being disrupted is a good thing.”
“I don’t think Washington didn’t do us any favors for the last 50, 60 years,” he continued. “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.”
Amanpour then asked the actor about how he feels about Brexit since he’s been living and working in the U.K. and if the country’s citizens can come back together after so much division.
“I think the English people should be just fine because you know they’ve been through a lot worse,” he said.
“And the American people?” she asked.
“The American people will be just fine, too. We’ve been through a lot worse,” he concluded.
