He’s branding himself as an “aggressive centrist” which is code for “right wing conservative that likes trump but knows how to couch those ideas in more polite ways.”
In the wake of trump casting doubt on the election process McConaughey gave an interview where he basically gave trump and his supporters a pass because he’s unwilling to antogonize them ahead of announcing his political aspirations.
That entire interview is one false equivalence after another, basically “all sides have fake news and liberals are condescending.”
No. Only one side is denying science, putting forth baseless claims, and actively attempting to subvert democracy.
Fuck Matthew McConaughey, because he’s worse than trump. He’s smart enough to know what he’s saying is bullshit, but he also knows how to say it in such a way that makes trump’s base happy and provides cover for their behavior. This is the new danger to our country: trumps who are slicker and smarter than he was.
