Actor Kelsey Grammer Supports Trump In Interview

Actor Kelsey Grammer, known to most of us as Dr. Frasier Crane and also the star of the epic movie “Down Periscope”, sat for an interview with lefty journalist Christiane Amanpour and was bold in his support for President Donald Trump. This would not be newsworthy except that it’s so rare. Most people, let alone actor types, won’t acknowledge in public that they think Trump should be anywhere but in jail.

Grammer is in London, England playing Don Quixote in “Man of La Mancha” with the English National Opera. He sat down with Amanpour for the interview alongside his Dulcinea, Australian opera star Danielle De Niese. Amanpour asked questions about what drew Grammer to the role of Don Q and he discussed the tragedy, and hope of the play and even sang a few bars of “The Impossible Dream”. Just in case you don’t know the words, they are:

To dream … the impossible dream …
To fight … the unbeatable foe …
To bear … with unbearable sorrow …
To run … where the brave dare not go …
To right … the unrightable wrong …
To love … pure and chaste from afar …
To try … when your arms are too weary …
To reach … the unreachable star …
This is my quest, to follow that star …
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far …
To fight for the right, without question or pause …
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause …
And I know if I’ll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie will lie peaceful and calm,
when I’m laid to my rest …
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach … the unreachable star …”

I have never noticed how Trumpian this song is before.

And, then Amanpour asked Grammer about politics. Fox News has a partial transcript of the interview:

In an interview with Christiane Amanpour, the Emmy winner, who is currently starring in “Man of La Mancha” on West End in London, opened up about if his career was affected by his politics and what he thinks about the current administration.

“I’m not aware of taking a [career] hit for it but now, certainly passions run high, and certainly he has touched on an extraordinarily passionate response,” Grammer said. “I don’t know if it’s as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be.”

The journalist pressed the 64-year-old further and said, “I was wondering whether you thought the sort of, many people believe this sort of fabric is being disrupted.”

“Well, I think fabric being disrupted is a good thing,” he said. “I don’t think Washington didn’t do us any favors for the last 50, 60 years, I think they’ve all been sort of the same party, the same bunch of clowns, the same bunch of really unpleasant people.”

The “Frasier” star continued to express how he doesn’t believe politicians help “anybody but themselves.”

My favorite part is when Amanpour asked Grammer about Brexit and he laid a little home truth on her:

Amanpour then asked the actor about how he feels about Brexit since he’s been living and working in the U.K. and if the country’s citizens can come back together after so much division.

“I think the English people should be just fine because you know they’ve been through a lot worse,” he said.

“And the American people?” she asked.

“The American people will be just fine, too. We’ve been through a lot worse,” he concluded.

Amen and Praise the Lord!

If you care to watch the video, here it is:

Personally, I love the horrified look on the face of Danielle De Niese.

When you are as multi-talented as Grammer, you can always get work. Plus, Mr. Grammer is of an age and has had such success that he no longer has to care what anyone else thinks. Sort of like Attorney General Bill Barr. Bill Barr is the honey badger and honey badger don’t care.

We should start giving out weekly awards to people who speak the truth. We’ll call it the “Honey Badger Award”. Not as prestigious as an Oscar, but way more honest. This week’s winner is: Kelsey Grammer. And, the crowd goes wild. “To Dream the Impossible Dream!”
