‘Frasier’ Star Praises Trump for Disrupting America's ‘Fabric,’ Calls Washington Politicians ‘Bunch of Clowns’


Emmy award-winning actor Kelsey Grammer says President Trump is disrupting the "fabric" of America – and that it’s “a good thing.”

Grammer, who is a registered Republican and voted for Trump in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, was asked by PBS’s Christiane Amanpour in an interview that aired Tuesday night whether he feels his career has taken a “hit” due to his political views.

The “Frasier” star replied frankly that he doesn’t believe things are “as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be.”

“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 – 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?” Amanpour asked.

“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 responded. "I don't know if it's as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be.”

Amanpour went on to press Grammer, asking whether he thinks the president is disrupting America’s “fabric," to which he replied, “Well I think fabric being disrupted is a good thing."

“I don’t think Washington didn't do us any favors for the last 50, 60 years," he continued. "I think they’ve all been sort of the same party, the same bunch of clowns, the same bunch of really unpleasant people. And I don't think they've been helping anybody but themselves.”
