The Hollywood star stated that the media outlets have no other option than to set aside political contrasts and ‘be constructive’
Matthew McConaughey has entered in some tricky political waters by seeming to support Donald Trump’s administration, and proposing that Hollywood needs to “embrace” it.
In a meeting with the BBC’s Andrew Marr, McConaughey was asked as to whether the time had come for “the cultural elite of America to give [Trump] a break”.
McConaughey answered: “Well, they don’t have a choice now. He’s our president. And it’s very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time we’ve ever 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.”
McConaughey included: “Even those who most strongly disagree with his principles, or what he’s said and done. Which is another thing: we’ll see what he does compared to what he had said.”
“No matter how much you disagreed along the way, it’s time to think about how constrctive you can be, because he’s our president for the next four years – at least.”
McConaughey has attempted to remain away from politics, choosing to rather channel his energies into the Just Keep Livin Foundation, which is “dedicated to empowering high-school students … to lead active lives and make healthy choices for a better future”.

Be that as it may, the two sides of the American political partition have seized on his remarks, after Breitbart attracted consideration by calling them a “sobering message”.
McConaughey’s agents have been reached for a reaction, however they haven’t answered so far.
