Bryan Cranston: I Think It’s Great That Trump Is Running

Bryan Cranston said he likes the way Donald Trump forces other presidential candidates to be more honest.

“I think it’s great that Donald Trump is in the mix,” Cranston said during an interview with the Daily Beast published Wednesday. “He’s a maverick.”

“He says what he wants to say, and it forces the other candidates to be more real, more honest, and more open. That’s what’s getting through to the people—that this guy doesn’t give a shit and just says what he wants to say.” (RELATED: Kanye West Just Called This Republican Candidate ‘Brilliant’)

“But as his campaign is going along, you notice that Trump is getting more and more conservative in his speech and his policy, getting a little more controlled, and conforming. He’s becoming a politician, which is an interesting thing to see.

“If a sitting politician said the things he did, he’d have to resign.”

Cranston said that just because someone doesn’t agree with you doesn’t make them a villain.

“I look at Fox News and I honestly don’t demonize them at all; I honestly believe that what they’re saying they believe in, and for that I can’t fault them.”

“I disagree, but I hope they can say the same about me—that I’m truly fighting for what I think are in the best interests of the country—because I think they are, too.” (RELATED: Bryan Cranston Is About To Have A Lot Of Angry Moms On His Hands)
