Earlier today, the whole social media was filled up with the Merry Streep’s anti-Trump speech at the Golden Globes. Now, a clip of Kurt Russel surfaces discussing how much he hates when actors get political.
“This is a business that’s heavily promulgated by people who have a politically liberal bent . . . I don’t begrudge them that. I’m a libertarian; frankly, I think my liberalness goes far beyond theirs in a lot of ways,”
“But yeah, we think differently, and maybe that’s cut me out of some things. I don’t care. People know I get along great with all kinds of directors, all kinds of actors. And I tell you, you hire me, I will show up, 24/7, and I will give you 100%. I will help you fix whatever problems come up. You hire me, I’m your boy. It’s just, it’s all about the work. And when that’s done, I am done.”
This clip is an insert of the Whoopi Goldberg’s show The View, which Kurt Russel publicly says: “The last thing I like to watch is entertainers or actors get political.”
And that’s right Mr. Russel!
According to WD, this surfaced after Streep brought up the clip in which Trump supposedly mocked disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovaleski, saying it was that “performance” that most “stunned” her this past year.
“There was nothing good about it, but it did its job,” the actress said. “It kind of broke my heart when I saw it, and I still can’t get it out my head because it wasn’t in a movie, it was in real life. That instinct to humiliate when it’s modeled by someone in a public platform, it filters down into everyone’s life because it gives permission for others to do the same.”
“Disrespect invites disrespect, violence incites violence,” Streep said.
She went on to call for a “principled press” to stand up to Trump, telling them “to hold power to hold power to account, to call to the carpet for every outrage.” She said Hollywood should support the Committee to Protect Journalists, “because we’re going to need them going forward — and they’ll need us to safeguard the truth.”
And the most interesting thing is that he told this in front of the biggest liberal out there on the screens. Share this if you support Kurt Russell for standing up to Hollywood Liberals!
