Matthew McConaughey Trends on Twitter for His Comments on the 'Illiberal Left' & Election Results

Matthew McConaughey is being called out on Twitter for his thoughts on the 2020 election and the far left.

“There’s a lot on that illiberal left that absolutely condescend, patronize and are arrogant towards the other 50 percent,” Matthew said to Russell Brand on his podcast.

Russell said there is a “kind of an offhandedness, of like, ‘Oh, they’re dumb, they’re voting for Brexit, they’re voting for Trump.’ I don’t like it, and I don’t like to hear it.”

“This is where the left misses it for me, just as far as being a marketeer of a political side,” Matthew said. “You say, ‘Hey, we want to get out the vote. We want people to go vote. We’re going to do a campaign to let people vote.’ I’m like, 100 percent. Yes, everyone. Is there anyone who would say no to that? That’s universal. You have 100 percent of the audience going, ‘I’m in. That’s a constitutional right as an American, I’m in. Yes!’”

“And then they can’t help themselves,” he added. “At the very end of it they go, ‘So, we don’t let those criminal b*stards get back in office!’ You’re like, ‘No! Don’t say the last part! You lost 50 percent of your audience.’”

Matthew then said that he believes this messaging is why “so much of the nation looks at us in Hollywood” and says “another celebrity over there, and the West Coasters, and the elite in the Northeast.” Matthew then said he believes the solution is meeting in the middle. “I actually think that is more of a dare than it’s ever been.”
