“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston did not vote for Donald Trump on election day. However, he has a pretty bold two-word message for everyone who wants to see Trump fail: “f*** you!”
From The Hill:
“President Trump is not the person who I wanted to be in that office, and I’ve been very open about that. That being said, he is the president,” the former “Breaking Bad” star — who once pledged to move out of the country if Trump won the White House — told The Hollywood Reporter.
“If he fails, the country is in jeopardy. It would be egotistical for anyone to say, ‘I hope he fails,’” Cranston, 61, explains. “To that person I would say, f— you. Why would you want that? So you can be right?”
The Hollywood Reporter has more from Cranston, who came from a military family. In his own words:
My dad was a naval pilot in World War II, and my mom joined the Coast Guard just after the war. When I was young, the perspective of serving was an assumption. It was not, “Was your dad in the war?” It was, “Which branch was your father in?” And for a long time, I was thinking about going in myself. We were of lower-middle class economic status, and I was a kid from a broken family and didn’t have a lot of prospects or guidance, so I was thinking I might join the Air Force and maybe join the LAPD when I get out.
In retrospect, my father’s war — the good war, the war to end all wars — the duty that these young men and women had was to defeat a clear and present danger. Whereas Vietnam and Iraq, it’s like, wait a minute, it’s less clear. In fact, it’s very ambiguous as far as whether we should be there at all. And that raises a very legitimate question.
