In what may be welcome and refreshing news to many folks across the United States, one Hollywood star (we loved him in Tombstone here at Reclaiming America) has finally come out and said to his fellow celebrities what many Americans have long believed, stay the heck out of politics.
“Longtime Hollywood actor Kurt Russell says that celebrities and entertainers should perhaps stay out of politics and do what they do best: Entertain the people who pay them to do so,” according to Blaze Media.
“In a recent interview with the New York Times, Russell said that celebrities should stay in their lane and not attempt to use their following to sway the public in one direction or the other.
“The 69-year-old actor said that entertainers like him serve the purpose of entertaining, not informing or educating, and should remain mum on their public opinions in order to preserve the integrity of their craft.
“‘I’ve always been someone who felt we are court jesters,’ he told the outlet in the wide-ranging interview published Wednesday. ‘That’s what we do. … As far as I’m concerned, you should step away from saying anything so that you can still be seen by the audience in any character.'”
