Kelsey Grammer, one of Hollywood’s few outspoken conservatives, defended the President Trump on Wednesday in a PBS interview with Christiane Amanpour.
Sitting alongside opera singer Danielle de Niese to discuss their London revival of “Man of La Mancha,” Grammer said his views, while they may be controversial in liberal Hollywood, haven’t actually impacted his career.
‘I’m not aware of taking a hit for (it) but now, certainly passions run high, and certainly he has touched on an extraordinarily passionate response,” the 64-year-old actor said of Trump.
“I was wondering whether you thought… many people believe this sort of fabric is being disrupted,” Amanpour said.
“Well, I think fabric being disrupted is a good thing,” Grammer replied. “I don’t think Washington didn’t do us any favors for the last 50, 60 years, 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.”
Asked about whether America can come together again amid political strife, Grammer said his countrymen “will be just fine.”
“We’ve been through a lot worse,” he said.
“Man of La Mancha” is currently running for six weeks at the London Coliseum in the West End.
