One of the few Hollywood conservatives, Kelsey Grammer of TV’s “Frasier,” is singing President Trump’s praises for doing more in 60 years than all of the “Washington clowns” that have been his detractors.

According to Newsbusters, Grammer sat down with Christiane Amanpour on the PBS show “Amanpour and Company” on Tuesday night. First, the host asked if his outspoken conservatism has been costly to him in any way in such a left-wing bastion like Hollywood.

“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 said. “I don’t know if it’s as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be.”

As the interview continued, Amanpour pressed Grammer on if he feels President Trump has “disrupted” the social fabric. Grammer said that the disruption is quite a good thing, adding that Washington has done little for people in the past 50 or even 60 years.

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.

Amanpour asked Grammer how people can reconcile amid such divisions, citing both Brexit and President Trump. Grammer said people will recover just fine because they have been through much worse.

AMANPOUR: What about people? Do you wonder, I mean here with Brexit, how can people sort of get back together again?

GRAMMER: I think the English people should be just fine because you know they’ve been through a lot worse.

AMANPOUR: And the American people?

GRAMMER: And the American people will be just fine, too. We’ve been through a lot worse.

Kelsey Grammer is not the only Hollywood conservative to praise Trump for shaking up the pot and getting things done – a draining of the swamp, so to speak. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly last year, actor Tim Allen said that it took a special kind of person like Trump to “get things done.”

“The theater of this is fascinating,” Allen said. “He doesn’t do it very attractively but you don’t even realize the economy is doing better. Is it? There’s so much drama. Maybe it took this type of guy to get stuff done because it was so stuck in the mud. I’m just watching the theater of it and trying to keep my personal opinions out of it. What difference does it make whether I like him?”

    Yes,I agree with Kelsey and Tim. President Trump is a hard driving no B.S. man who has done more for this country in 2 1/2 years than the corrupt Democrat and R.I.N.O swamp creatures could ever hope to accomplish. But that’s just it,they have no interest in making this country better.Only lining their pockets and purses is their primary interest.The liberal Democrats have brought nothing to the table but racial division and decension.The wholesale hatred of our commander in chief, total disrespect for our men and women of the military and police force.The constant attacks on Christianity and Judism. Thank God A.G. Barr and Devin Nunes have launched multiple investigations pertaining to the illegal spying on President Trump at the hands of Hillary, Obama and their cohorts. Judgement day is fast approaching for these criminals.

    The career politicos can’t stand the POTUS cause he’s shaking the tree that they have hung out on for too long. Can’t wait for NOV 2020 to roll around so we can show those “LIFERS” the door, along with some of the super radicals that snuck in last time around.

    He is 100% correct on everything he said. That’s why all these politicians hate Trump. He’s exposing them for the frauds they are, and proving the right person can get things done. What he’s accomplished in his time as President is nothing short of amazing despite all the resistance and bullshit he’s had to deal with. Imagine what he could accomplish if these idiots would play ball and work with him. It won’t happen though, because so many of them, particularly on the left are corrupt and have no desire to do anything for anyone except themselves. It’s ok though, once Barr’s investigations really get going and Trump starts declassifying materials a lot of them are going to go to jail. Maybe then we’ll get some more honest people who actually want to help make the country great.
