Matthew McConaughey is being called out on Twitter for his thoughts on the 2020 election and the far left.
Russell said there is a “kind of an offhandedness, of like, ‘Oh, they’re dumb, they’re voting for Brexit, they’re voting for Trump.’ I don’t like it, and I don’t like to hear it.”
“This is where the left misses it for me, just as far as being a marketeer of a political side,” Matthew said. “You say, ‘Hey, we want to get out the vote. We want people to go vote. We’re going to do a campaign to let people vote.’ I’m like, 100 percent. Yes, everyone. Is there anyone who would say no to that? That’s universal. You have 100 percent of the audience going, ‘I’m in. That’s a constitutional right as an American, I’m in. Yes!’”
“And then they can’t help themselves,” he added. “At the very end of it they go, ‘So, we don’t let those criminal b*stards get back in office!’ You’re like, ‘No! Don’t say the last part! You lost 50 percent of your audience.’”
Matthew then said that he believes this messaging is why “so much of the nation looks at us in Hollywood” and says “another celebrity over there, and the West Coasters, and the elite in the Northeast.” Matthew then said he believes the solution is meeting in the middle. “I actually think that is more of a dare than it’s ever been.”

Yeah, there's absolutely no way I'd vote for Matthew McConaughey for Governor of Texas. Nope…where is Woody Harrelson?

I'm gonna be honest, I've always known that loving Matthew McConaughey was a devil's bargain and I've just been waiting for the shoe to drop

Love Matthew Mcconaughey's movies, disagrees with his politics. Love Susan Sarandon movies, disagrees with her politics. Will not boycott or cancel either just because they do not take my way or the highway. Doesn't mean I have to love or hate them.

For Matthew McConaughey to compare liberal reaction to Trump's win in 16 and Trump voters' reaction now is absurd. We didn't question whether he'd won, only the legitimacy of the electoral college as an institution. Trumpkins reject facts themselves and spin conspiracy bullshit.

Who's shocked by what Mathew Mcconaughey said? In fact, I expected it from him because I've been paying attention this entire time.
