Actor Jeff Bridges Has a Soft Spot for President Trump?

Here we have Jeff Bridges, famed and acclaimed actor, giving his interesting perspective on President Donald Trump. He actually has some wise words to say and something that I think everyone needs to hear.

Among them he realizes that “everybody” has something to contribute to society as well as their own way of doing things. He’s actually rooting for him to do well for our country.

It reminds me a bit of what Tom Hanks said on the matter, “This is the United States of America. We’ll go on. There’s great like-minded people out there who are Americans first and Republicans or Democrats second,” he continued, “I hope the president-elect does such a great job that I vote for his re-election in four years.”

As written for by Zachary Leeman:

Jeff Bridges proved he’s as laid back and calm as his most famous character The Dude from “The Big Lebowski” when he touched on President Donald Trump in a recent interview.

“Everybody has something different and unique to contribute to society and with different ways of doing it,” Bridges told the Associated Press on Wednesday after a panel on child hunger at the Western Governors Association in Whitefish, Montana.

“Some people will be blatantly out there talking about their disappointments and ridiculing the way President Trump is acting,” said 67-year-old Bridges. “I’m rooting for him to do well by our country. I’m rooting for him as a human being to do the cool thing.”

Though Bridges supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, this is not the first time he has said he is hoping Trump is successful.

“Things are finite here … How are we going to work together to make the most beautiful existence that we can?” Bridges told CNN after Trump was elected.

He said he was “rooting” for the new president and he thought celebrities should “put a check” on their aggression and stop “being so sure that Trump is an a**hole and that he’s going to be terrible.”
