(National Sentinel)Â State of the Union: The star of the hit TV series “Breaking Bad” has a message for anyone who says they want President Donald J. Trump to fail, and it’s not something you’d repeat in polite company.
â€œPresident Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office, and Iâ€™ve been very open about that,” Bryan Cranston said in an interview with The Hollywood ReporterÂ on Monday. “That being said, he is the president.
â€œIf he fails, the country is in jeopardy. It would be egotistical for anyone to say, â€˜I hope he fails,â€™â€ Cranston said. â€œTo that person I would say, f— you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?â€
The actor, who is currently promoting aÂ Vietnam War-era movie â€œLast Flag Flying,â€ said he doesnâ€™t want Trump to fail. “I donâ€™t want him to fail,” Cranston argued. “I want him to succeed. I do. I honestly do.”
Those comments are the polar opposite of what Cranston said before the November election, when he claimed he would move to Canada if Trump beat Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton.
But, in his interview,Â Cranston said regardless of political affiliations, heâ€™ll support anyone with â€œa good idea.â€
â€œIf youâ€™ve got a good idea that helps the country, oh man, Iâ€™m gonna support you,â€ Cranston said. â€œI donâ€™t care if youâ€™re a Republican and Iâ€™m a Democrat or whatever, I donâ€™t care.â€
Perhaps sensing the deep divisions within the country, Cranston added:Â â€œWeâ€™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 thereâ€™s always room for improvement. How can we make it better?â€
