In an interview with NBC’s “Today” show, actor Bryan Cranston — one of the most vehemently anti-Trump celebrities in Hollywood — said that he hoped that the president-elect “does an exceptionally good job.”
Cranston, who had previously promised to leave the country if Trump were elected, was on the show promoting the release of his new movie, “Why Him?”
“He was not my candidate, but he is going to be my president, and I truly hope he does an exceptionally good job,” said Cranston, best known for his role as a meth-producing chemistry teacher on “Breaking Bad.”
“I really do,” he explained, “because if that is true, he has done well for the country, and that’s much more important than who I personally wanted to be president.”
Cranston also joked that he wanted the president-elect to tweet him over a sketch he did on last weekend’s “Saturday Night Live,” in which he reprised his “Breaking Bad” character as Trump’s top appointment to the Drug Enforcement Agency.

In an appearance on the Bestseller Experiment podcast earlier this year, the actor threatened to leave the United States were Trump to be elected.
“Absolutely,” Cranston said to the idea of a four-year vacation in Vancouver were Trump to take the presidency. “I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”
Unlike a lot of people in Hollywood, Cranston seems to be taking Trump’s victory like a mature adult, realizing that the unconventional Republican was America’s pick and that it doesn’t behoove him to have a president who does a bad job.
If only other Hollywood celebs who have been gnashing their teeth and rending their garments were to follow Cranston’s example, maybe this country would be a lot better off. Looking at you, Lena Dunham.
