Hillary-voting liberal actor Bryan Cranston had some harsh words Monday for people who are rooting for President Trump to fail.
During an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the Breaking Bad star voiced his displeasure with Trump but warned that a failed presidency would be catastrophic for the country.
“President Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office, and I’ve been very open about that,” Cranston said. “That being said, he is the president.”
The actor, who became a household name after his role in Breaking Bad, had once pledged to leave the U.S. if Trump became president, said America being successful was more important than feeling vindicated.
“If he fails, the country is in jeopardy,” Cranston stated. “It would be egotistical for anyone to say, ‘I hope he fails.’”
“To that person I would say, fuck you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?”
Cranston said he is rooting for success despite his feelings toward the commander in chief.
“I honestly do… And if you’ve got a good idea that helps the country, oh man, I’m gonna support you,” Cranston stated.
The Emmy Award-winning actor also spoke out against partisan politics that pit Americans against one another.
“I don’t care if you’re a Republican and I’m a Democrat or whatever, I don’t care,” Cranston said. “A good idea’s a good idea. Let’s do that.
“We’ve got to get away from this idea that our country is political football, and someone with a different opinion is the enemy. Assume they love this country as much as you do, and there’s always room for improvement. How can we make it better?”
Cranston is currently promoting his role in the Richard Linklater film Last Flag Flying about three Vietnam veterans on a road trip together.
