Donald Trump has been called many things over recent months, and refreshing is not one of them.
But that is how Bryan Cranston described the GOP presidential candidate on a podcast for The Nerdist” with host Chris Hardwick that surfaced on Thursday.
The pair somehow went from talking about bowling to the outspoken real estate mogul, with Cranston telling Hardwick that he might be able to create a show about bowling “when President Trump is inaugurated.”
“I actually like his candor,” the “Breaking Bad” actor confessed, and went on to imitate Trump: “‘You’re an idiot. I’m a winner, you’re a loser.’”
On a more serious note, Cranston said that he is happy that Trump has shaken up a political field that has never had a candidate like him before.
Cranston actually thinks Trump would be a horrible president, yet still finds him fascinating. Having an over-sized personality playing by his own rules is appealing even if you don’t like the guy politically.
I think the Trump and Sanders surges are deeply emotional responses from portions of the American electorate who are worried about enduring two boring faux imperial candidates who feel they’re owed the job squaring off for the presidency. I would like to think that acting out in a slightly unhinged manner, no matter how entertaining it is to watch, isn’t enough to get a man elected president of the United States.
Then again we’re dealing with a voting public that made the current occupant of the White House a two-termer.
