Actor Bryan Cranston made some surprisingly harsh remarks toward President Donald Trump’s biggest critics.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the “Breaking Bad” star said that anyone who doesn’t want Trump to succeed is not hoping for the best for the country.
When asked if his views regarding the president have changed in the past year, he admitted that Trump was not the candidate he wanted to see in the White House.
However, Cranston had a message for those who want the president to fail:
“To that person I would say, f*** you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?”

Exactly. Those who want the president to fail just because they don’t like him, obviously don’t have the country’s best interests at heart.
Cranston went on to say he wanted to president to succeed, adding he would support anyone who had good ideas that might help the country.
“I don’t care if you’re a Republican and I’m a Democrat or whatever, I don’t care. A good idea’s a good idea. Let’s do that,” Cranston said.
“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?” he added.
It’s a shame that more people don’t feel the same way as Cranston does about their fellow Americans.
Democrats and elite Republicans alike seem to be bent on stifling Trump’s efforts to make the country great again.
Cranston hasn’t been a fan of Trump’s in the past. In fact, at one point he said he would move out of the country if Trump won the election.
Moreover, in an interview with the U.K.’s Channel 4 News earlier this month, the actor expressed worry about Trump’s presidency, and said he thought the president had an “illness.”
That was a ridiculous thing to say, and it’s good to see Cranston taking a different perspective.
There’s little doubt that the actor will catch some flak from some Hollywood elites, who are still living in denial about Trump’s victory and what that victory says about the political climate in the country.
