Academy Award-winning actor Jeff Bridges had some good advice for those who are still unable to come to terms with the fact that President Donald Trump won the election.
In an interview with CNN, Bridges said there was too much finger-pointing going on, and that Americans needed to come together and realize pointing fingers is not the answer to any of the country’s problems.
“That’s what I think is needed today, to kind of put a check on ourselves and knowing what’s right or wrong and being so sure that Trump is an a**hole and that he’s going to be terrible and all this,” the “Hell or High Water” star said.
“You can have very strong opinions, but to go after this peace and this beauty that we’re after, I think we gotta show up and give a little space for something beautiful to bloom out of it,” he said.
“As the Dude might say,” he added, quoting his iconic character in “The Big Lebowski,” “‘This aggression will not stand.’”
When speaking about the varied opinions about Trump, Bridges said, “Like the Dude says, ‘Well, that’s just your opinion, man.’ It’s impossible not to have an opinion. You’re going to have an opinion about things, but just take it as an opinion. Don’t take it as, you know, ‘this is the s***, this is what’s true.’”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in November, Bridges said he was rooting for Trump, even though he didn’t fully support him, and thought one of the most appealing things about Trump was his unpredictability.
To stop pointing fingers and come together is advice that many Democrats should follow because some of them, including those in the mainstream media, believe their opinions to be so valuable that we should not only hear them but accept them as our own.
Bridges went out on a limb by encouraging people to basically act like grown-ups, but he couldn’t be more right.
