Former “Home Improvement” star Zachery Ty Bryan said on “Fox & Friends” that liberal celebrity elitists are pushing away many Americans with their anti-Trump rhetoric heading into November’s midterm elections.
Celebrities like Kyra Sedgewick and Kevin Bacon have been avid political advocates for Democrats, urging liberals to vote and volunteer, claiming they are doing it to “be on the right side of history.”
Other Hollywood liberals like Robert De Niro, Samantha Bee, and Kathy Griffin, have launched profanity-laced tirades against President Trump in recent months.
Bryan said it’s stressful to consider the future of the country as divided as it currently is.
“We’re just [in] such need of coming together and realizing that we’re all on the same ship and we don’t want that ship to sink,” stated Bryan. “Whether you disagree with the president or you don’t, he’s doing what he feels [is] best and he’s representing a very large majority of people that live in Middle America.”
Bryan says it is vital to grasp both sides of the political debate, rather than simply criticizing those with completely different viewpoints.
“So much of it, I feel, in my business comes from this elitist perspective where it’s almost like they’re better than you,” he added. “That’s kind of frustrating because these are really good, hardworking Americans.”
He referred to the idea of Hollywood stars pushing liberal views as the “narcissism” of elites who believe that they represent everyday Americans, although they live a completely different lifestyle.
