Actor Kelsey Grammer, the star of “Cheers” and “Frasier” made some remarks on TBS that would normally destroy the career of any actor.
The actor is an admitted conservative and supporter of President Donald Trump and he went all in on that in a PBS interview.
Grammer spoke to Christiane Amanpour during her “Amanpour and Company” show on Tuesday to discuss his starring role in “Man of La Mancha.”
But the subject eventually got to Grammar’s personal life and then into politics as to be expected by a CNN and PBS eporter.
“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.
“You are one of those rare Hollywood beasts who is conservative, and you voted for Donald Trump,” she said.
“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?” she said, Newsbusters reported.
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: 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.
Love Kelsey! Saw him just last night in Man of La Mancha in London. He’s a great singer! He was a perfect Don Quixote!

He’s a long time known Republican, this shouldn’t be surprising.
