Mark Wahlberg is in the rare category of celebrities who understands that trashing President Donald Trump doesn’t bode well for his career and his fans don’t like it. More than just wanting to save his fame from backlash, he genuinely doesn’t share the same hate for our administration that the rest of Hollywood does. He didn’t shill hard for Hillary and doesn’t care that she lost. He’s too busy respecting our veterans and reaching out to them and wishes other celebrities would quit crying about politics and stick to entertaining.
Now, Wahlberg has had enough with all the divisive debauchery and just put these liberal whiners in their place with what he wasn’t afraid to say to all of Hollywood. He’s rightfully irritated and now so are his celebrity counterparts who hate his brutal honesty.
There’s no shortage of celebrities in Hollywood who love to spew their hate from Trump and think fans should care about how mad they are about the man in the White House. While they’re busy complaining, Wahlberg has been working on his upcoming movie, “Patriot’s Day,” and putting his opinions out there in a positive way. His counterparts can’t understand this and he doesn’t care who he offends with the truth. Liberals everywhere weren’t prepared to hear what he put out there.
During a press junket for his film, Wahlberg was asked by a representative from Task And Purpose, a magazine dedicated to veterans, if he openly discusses his political opinions openly. Clearly, this came up since it’s the hottest trend in Hollywood right now to be political. The unapologetic actor responded in the least expected way with a message heard by all self-loathing leftists.
“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t,” Wahlberg said. He then unloaded the best reason why it’s time for everyone in Hollywood to shut up and move on.
“You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway. They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills,” he said, according to Fox News. “A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family.”
While all other actors are focused on trashing Trump, Wahlberg showed respect for him by choosing a different route when being political and making a real point.
Fox News reported: He pointed out that his decision to stay mum on policy issues comes from the fact that he spent his life around real Americans.
“Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world,” he said. “And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.”
Wahlberg doesn’t take the lifestyle and opportunities he has for granted like so many entitled celebrities do. But more importantly, he doesn’t take advantage of his public platform in a way that perpetuates hate and divisiveness in this country, just to get some attention on himself and his career. He knows what it’s like to live without basic means and hasn’t forgotten where he came from just because he has it all now.
It should be insulting to every American to hear an entitled actor in a multi-million dollar mansion, likely protected by a protective fence or wall, complain about the struggles they face now with Trump as their president. Trump isn’t working to make life better for them, he cares about the average American family and the very real struggles they’re dealing with, from the rising cost of healthcare to simply finding work.
Trump has made monumental improvements in major areas in record time, and that’s just the start. America is certainly better today than it was for eight years before him and there’s no denying that. People should be praising him, rather than constantly complaining simply for the fact that their candidate didn’t win over a year ago. It’s time for them to move on. We need more celebrities like Wahlberg, Clint Eastwood, and Roseanne Barr who aren’t afraid to speak the truth, support the president and oppose the major political rhetoric coming out of Hollywood.
