On Sunday January 29, British channel ChannelFI aired an interview with Oscar-winning actor Mathew McConaughey. 

 

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, during the interview  McConaughey said that critics need to “shake hands with the fact” that Donald Trump is president and “think about how constructive you can be.”

 

Asked if it’s time for Hollywood and the cultural elite of America to “give the guy a break,” McConaughey replied:

 

Well, they don’t have much of a choice. He’s our president. And it’s very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time that we’ve ever had. At the same time, it’s time for us to embrace, shake hands with this fact, and be constructive with him over the next four years. So, even those who most strongly may disagree with his principles or things 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 even disagreed along the way, it’s time to think about how constructive can you be. Because he’s our president for the next four years. At least.
