Matthew McConaughey Says Americans Should 'Embrace' Donald Trump as President

Matthew McConaughey had some interesting things to say about Donald Trump being in the White House.

The 47-year-old actor was recently asked what he thought about the new President and if Americans need to accept him.

“Well, they don’t have a choice now,” Matthew told ChannelFi. “He’s our president. And it’s very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time as we’ve had. At the same time, it’s time for us to embrace and shake hands with this fact and be constructive with him over the next four years.”

You can watch his interview below.

    Umm no. That’s agreeing that he actually won, that’s staying silent on Putin, that’s sitting down and allowing him to walk over the country, its people and the Constitution.

    And 4 years? Try 8 because Trump put his name into the hat for the 2020 election, literally. I think he’s already raising money for that election. WHO DOES THAT?

    This man needs to be stopped.

    what a simpleton

  • Do Tell

    MM is a Texan thru and thru. I expect him to be pro Trump. I don’t hate him for it.

  • Anne

    flip flopping dumba**. he was in the “i will survive” yt vid against trump. guess he’s an idiot racist now

  • j b

    Matthew McConaughey is a horrible person and a total douche. He was driving Donald Trump before it was cool to drive Donald Trump around.

  • Gina

    Wonder what his immigrant wife has to say about this.

  • Juan Cocco

    im a little sad i was literally thinking about how much i liked him now I’m disgusted honestly very disturbing!!!! wow what a coincidence I’m glad i got that idea outta my mind I’m glad he’s baliding!!!!!!!

  • cutitout

    Well, Trump has mad zero effort to meet the opposition or those with alternative views halfway on anything, he continues to make divisive moves so while everyone has to ‘accept” the fact that he is president, it is unlikely that he is going to be “embraced” anymore than the right “embraced” Obama. And lets be real, we have not even seen or heard the worst of it all. I’m just sitting here waiting for something even worse to come out.

  • FerCat

    ‘This man needs to be stopped’
    How? Short of disintegrating the United States. The Dems shot both their own kneecaps off by abandoning the blue collar vote and the rust belt. What was once blue is now red.

  • NEKKID

    To say what? That we should support our President? I think it’s pretty obvious.

  • Gina

    Are you slow? Support a President who has a thing against immigrants?

    I was expecting more from him, more support, more sympathy and most importantly more understanding since he married a brazilian woman who came in america for no other reason than fun, and yet you seem to be ok with that but not ok with people fleeing war and despair. I feel like people forget that patriotism has to be equal for all, why do you have to back up/ support your president when he should be the one defending and supporting his people, he’s the one who is in a position of power, why should we defend him ? you don’t ask kids to protect their parents

  • j b

    Probably change his mind when Trump passes an Executive Order that gets his wife shipped out of the country.

  • NEKKID

    That’s a bald-faced lie. He has a «thing» only against illegal aliens and that «thing» called the law.

  • Jake

    NEKKID is John Dow, I don’t know why he made a new account. He always calls them illegal aliens and often uses «»

  • Jake

    NEKKID is John Dow, I don’t know why he made a new account. He always calls them illegal aliens and often uses «»

  • Jake

    Lmao did JJ ban your other account, Jane Dow, or what happened that you had to make a new one?

  • NEKKID

    What???

  • Jake

    It’s not very hard to recognize you thanks to your writing style etc., «JD». You’re pathetic.

  • Jake

    Keep making a fool of yourself, so that we at JJ have something to laugh about, you terrible liar.

  • NEKKID

    You’re delusional.

  • Jake

    Is it that why JJ banned your John Dow account and all of your comments are gone (The comment was deleted) lmao. Give it up.

  • Jake

    Sure, obvious JD is obvious.

    Just a tip, next time you make a new account, adapt a new style of writing.

  • Jake

    You’re trying so hard to prove that you’re not JD because you got caught, it’s hilarious.

    I have to go to work anyway because unlike you I have a job, pathetic Trumpkin snowflake.

  • persononhere

    are you disgusted with your friends each time they like something or someone you don’t?

  • Gina

    *Yawn* you and those alternative facts of yours.

  • agus

    Maybe American should embrace him like he embraces American.

  • NEKKID

    You lied, not me.

  • arwa

    I think you don’t understand the difference between having different views on favorite milk shake flavor. And having different views on fundamental issues such as human rights.

  • persononhere

    got it. so, my friends and i can disagree on milkshake flavors as long as we agree on fundamental issues. how open-minded and liberal of you to only make friends with only people who share your views entirely.

  • arwa

    O really, then I’ll befriends Nazis, ISIS members and homophobic and xenophobic it’s so cool to have a wide range of views within my friend circle. And you know what will be super cool?!! if at the end we kill each other (you know as per usual).

  • unpleasantfacts478

    Or maybe he just stopped being a baby. Maybe doesn’t want to be associated with the violent regressive fascists who are protesting Trump but aren’t sure why they’re doing it.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Americans will support a President who doesn’t do things against the Constitution. wish these celebs would just stfu.

  • rubie

    Being married to an immigrant , it shocks me to hear this from him, but I guess the rich don’t worry about such things…go back to getting fat than skinny dude and let the real people have their own opinions.

  • MaisyDaisy

    I will embrace Trump and then knee him in his sagging groin.

  • MaisyDaisy

    Yes! Let’s “embrace” him from “behind”.

  • Cooper

    Embracing and accepting are two very different things. I agree we should accept that he won and is president but embrace? Not so much, he doesn’t align in policies with me and a majority of America. All we can do now is donate and participate in movements and with organizns. Trump is my president like the ones who came before him but I don’t agree with him.

  • Cooper

    About the only thing I’ve seen so far is he kept the executive order protecting lgbt in the workplace. Other than that I haven’t agreed at all. I would have agreed with the ban had it not been so sloppily done. He should have suspended the ISSUING of new visas and green cards but let people who have already received them and been checked come and go as they please. Trump also rushed it. To top it off he left out important countries like Saudi Arabia who is confirmed and linked to terrorist groups.

    Over a year ago I had no job, no place to reside, with no more than 10 bucks to my name, hopeless!

    This president is working very hard for new civil war.

  • Juan Cocco

    actually… yes lol

  • persononhere

    perhaps they can start with you?

  • arwa

    Wow, I thought you were chill with people disagreeing with you. Sincerely, f*ck you, and don’t bother responding to my comment, I really don’t care for you.

    See this is what’s wrong with this country. So much could have been done to fix and make prosperous over the last 8 years but republicans sat on their ass and did nothing. They literally looked into the camera and told us, if Obama wants it, we’re going to make sure it doesn’t pass. And they did NOTHING and nothing happened. And instead of questioning, instead of replacing, moronic voters voted to make this country further red.

    Statistically speaking, blue states have to carry these goddamn red states because they are so poor and uneducated and on welfare.
    And because their pockets stayed bare and the bills went up, people threw blame at Washington and were fooled into believing that America is a corporation and should be run like one. And instead of questioning, hey more than half the states are run by republican governors and the states aren’t flourishing, when congress has been republican for 7 years but no bills have passed, when the Senate has been republican for the last 2 years but nothing has been passed, instead of questioning WHY, they let their idiocy blame Obama/democrats/ Washington. And the mainstream media, which is NOT liberal, refuses to help educate the masses and so morons get their news from memes and alt-right fake stories. That’s what caused this catastrophic disaster.

    So no, democrats did not shoot themselves in the knee, 62 million people were conned into believing that the best way to go is by voting for the most inexperienced person this country has ever seen run for POTUS. The democrats warned everyone until they were blue in the face, elect Donald Trump and it will turn into the dismantling of democracy as we know it.

    And what do you know, they were right. Now those who refused to listen are pissed that Trump and the republicans are harming their livelihood. And democrats are still being blamed.
