Movie star Matthew McConaughey is sick of Hollywood Liberals treating Trump supporters like dirt. The actor recently gave an interview where he rejected the mainstream Lefty narrative. It’s about time someone in Hollywood calls them out. McConaughey has also hinted at getting into politics himself.
Matthew McConaughey blasts the radical Left
Matthew McConaughey is a rare breed. He’s one of very few Hollywood celebrities that has respect for people on the Right.
In a recent interview the actor blasted the far Left for being arrogant and patronizing to Conservatives. “There are a lot on that illiberal left that absolutely condescend, patronize and are arrogant towards the other 50%,” McConaughey said. He added that people in Hollywood “were in denial” about President Donald Trump winning the 2016 election.
Maybe McConaughey’s comments have something to do to his upbringing. The actor was born and raised in a small town in Texas. He knows most Conservatives are good, patriotic, hard-working Americans.
In 2018 he surprised a group of first responders with catered lunches in Houston. “Hurricane Harvey just hit last August here. So much of Houston was under water. We’re going around here today, delivering a turkey, a little bourbon and a little gratitude to the men and women who responded first when that disaster hit,” he said.
McConaughey has stayed active in his community over the years. He’s been a guest professor at the University of Texas in Austin since 2015 where he serves as a film professor.
During the COVID-19 panic earlier this year, the famous actor hit the road with his wife to donate and deliver more than 100,000 masks to rural Texas hospitals.
The next Governor of Texas?
Matthew McConaughey is making his rounds on the podcast circuit to promote his new memoir, “Green Light.” In a recent interview on the Hugh Hewitt show he was asked if he would consider running for Governor in his home state of Texas, he replied, “I wouldn’t be opposed to that. But ultimately it would be up to the people.”
McConaughey was born and raised in The Lone Star State and currently resides in Austin with his family. The next governor’s race is in 2022 and current Governor Greg Abbott is up for re-election.
“Look, politics seems to be a broken business to me right now,” McConaughey said during the podcast. “When politics redefines its purpose, I could be a hell of a lot more interested. You know, I still question how much you can really get done in politics, and I don’t know if politics is my avenue to get what maybe I am best equipped to get done.”
Matthew McConaughey noted that the political arena has been incredibly divisive lately and he’d like to see things cool down a bit before he gets involved. “I want to get behind personal values to rebind our social contracts with each other as Americans, as people,” he said. “This country’s got to stabilize first before we start to say, ‘OK, here’s how we’re marching out of this together.'”
