“Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer was interviewed recently on PBS by Christiane Amanpour where he sang President Trump’s praises in no uncertain terms. Grammer is one of the few outspoken conservatives in Hollywood, which was one of the first questions Amanpour had for the actor, as reported by Newsbusters.

“Can I ask you, Kelsey, because we were talking obviously about today’s politics and it’s very divisive, very partisan, whether it’s in the United States, whether it’s here,” Amanpour began. “You are one of those rare Hollywood beasts who is conservative, and you voted for Donald Trump. And I just wonder, what, whether you sort of took any hits in Hollywood for that? Did you feel that you were sort of marginalized?”

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

Later in the interview, Grammer said that Trump has disrupted the status quo in Washington, which he sees as a good thing.

Amanpour: I was wondering whether you thought the sort of, many people believe this sort of fabric is being disrupted.

Grammer: Well I think fabric being disrupted is a good thing.

Amanpour: You do?

Grammer: Oh yeah. 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.

Amanpour: It’s politics.

Grammer: And I don’t think they’ve been helping anybody but themselves.

Grammer is not the only conservative in Hollywood but is certainly one of the rare few.

He’s also right. For at least a half century, the establishment of both major parties has been more similar than not, with status quo Democrats and Republicans usually causing more problems than they fix.

At least Donald Trump is getting things done! And at least one person in Hollywood is giving him due credit.
