In the liberal world of Hollywood, it’s rare to find an actor that is brave enough to risk his or her career by defending Donald Trump. That’s why it came as a welcome surprise this week when Oscar winner Jeff Bridges spoke out to defend Trump from the onslaught of hate he is getting from liberals.
Breitbart reported that though Bridges supported Hillary Clinton in the election last year, he has managed to accept that she lost unlike many of his peers among the liberal Hollywood elite. Now five months into Trump’s presidency, Bridges is looking into the future and says he is “rooting” for the current president.
“Everybody has something different and unique to contribute to society and with different ways of doing it,” Bridges said on Wednesday during a panel about child hunger. “Some people will be blatantly out there talking about their disappointments and ridiculing the way President Trump is acting.”
“I’m rooting for him to do well by our country,” he added. “I’m rooting for him as a human being to do the cool thing.”
We’re glad that a liberal celebrity like Bridges is brave enough to publicly give Trump a chance. Liberals are furious that Bridges would dare to say that he is “rooting” for Trump, but we love that he’s loyal to the president of the United States!
