Morgan Freeman Makes Unexpected Statement About President Trump

Ever since the election, the prevailing narrative from the majority of the entertainment community is that the sky is falling. That rhetoric has been ratcheted up to a whole new level since President Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. Anything that Trump does or says is met with derision, and detractors continue to paint a bleak picture for our nation’s future.

As the Daily Mail reports, at least one veteran member of the entertainment community is taking a much more measured approach. Legendary actor Morgan Freeman, star of films such as ‘Driving Miss Daisy,’ ‘The Shawshank Redemption,’ and countless other classics, acknowledges things didn’t turn out the way he wanted them to in the general election, but he’s not working himself into hysterics over it.

“As for politics today, I supported Hillary in the election, and now it feels like we are jumping off a cliff. We just have to find out how we land. I'm not scared, though,” Freeman says.

That’s some fantastic food for thought for the plethora of Trump detractors out there, and also a great example on how to get your point across while keeping things in perspective.

“I'm holding out hope that Donald Trump has to be a good president. He can't not be. What I see is a guy who will not lose,” he continued.

Freeman nailed it again. Trump is our president, and whether you agree or disagree with his policies, the fact remains that he is president for all of us. Cautious optimism or measured apprehension is a perfectly reasonable stance for detractors to take, but treating every news item that comes down the pike as proof that the world is ending is patently ridiculous.

In fact, it’s downright irresponsible and leads to an increase in the very real divide that our nation is experiencing on a number of issues. Perhaps more celebs can follow the example set by the classy Freeman, and they might find some more success in getting their points across to boot.
