Blame Nicole Kidman’s country singer of a husband or the fact that she spends too much time in Australia for her recent Donald Trump remarks. This week, the Oscar winner did an interview with UK television host Victoria Derbyshire where she told Americans that it was time to fall in line and show support for President-elect Trump. The movie star was at the red carpet premiere of her new movie “Lion” when she revealed that even Democrats, who supported Hillary Clinton, should be rooting for the mogul.
Mrs Keith Urban said: “[Trump is] now elected and we, as a country, need to support whoever is the president. That is what the country is based on. And however that happened, it happened, and let’s go.”
The comments spread like wildfire with many people asking, why should they support Trump when the Republicans never gave President Barack Obama a fair chance after winning in 2008?
Others, who are part of the NeverMyPresident movement, rushed to social media to state the obvious; it is not possible to back a man who is the leader of the free world and is always feuding with everyone.
Kidman was slammed by a few commenters, who said that she is a closeted conservative and is hooked on Botox.
Many were quicked to remind the Hollywood star that the Electoral College voting process is outdated and that Mrs. Clinton received millions more votes than her opponent who got a little help from Russian hackers.
Few are surprised by Kidman’s remarks because celebrities tend to be left leaning like Meryl Streep who bashes the mogul at every opportunity she gets.
In case you have missed it, the iconic star lashed out at Mr. Trump at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards for mocking disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski. She said: “This instinct to humiliate, when it’s modeled by someone in the public platform, by someone powerful, it filters down into everybody’s life, because it kind of gives permission for other people to do the same thing.”
Trump responded by saying: “I was never mocking anyone. I was calling into question a reporter who had gotten nervous because he had changed his story. People keep saying I intended to mock the journalist’s disability, as if Meryl Streep and others could read my mind, and I did no such thing. And remember, Meryl Streep introduced Hillary Clinton at her convention, and a lot of these people supported Hillary.”
If Kidman is a Republican she is a very modern one because in the same interview she explained how happy she was that gays had the right to get married in Australia.
