Nicole Kidman Says Itís Time to Support Donald Trump

Nicole Kidman Says It?s Time to Support Donald Trump

"However that happened, he's there, and let's go"

Nicole Kidman says people now need to support Donald Trump.
ďHeís now elected and we as a country need to support whoever is president because thatís what the countryís based on,Ē the actress told BBC in an interview that aired this week. ďHowever that happened, heís there, and letís go.Ē
Kidman is a dual Australian-American citizen.
In contrast to Kidman, TIME editor-at-large David Von Drehle wrote in the new issue of TIME of the dangers of celebrities using their platform to speak out against the president-elect, as actress Meryl Streep did at the Golden Globes last weekend.
ďPrior to Streepís speech, newscasts had been buzzing with genuine issues,Ē Von Drehle said. ďWhat was the nature of Russiaís election meddling? Would Trumpís Cabinet choices bother to complete the customary ethics disclosures? What would the Republicans offer to replace Obamacare?
ďNow the country was debating Trumpís qualifications as a movie critic,Ē he added. ďWhatever Streepís intentions may have been, her words enabled Trumpóand usóto indulge in yet another distraction.Ē

Nicole Kidman says people now need to support Donald Trump.
“He’s now elected and we as a country need to support whoever is president because that’s what the country’s based on,” the actress told BBC
Yes. And? I support her right to voice her opinion and her argument there has some validity. A week past the election I was musing that maybe the man's approach to campaigning was just that and that he might become a more measured person since he'd won the EC. But that hasn't happened.

Plus Trump himself obviously doesn't believe in "support whoever is President."

And to use an extreme example, would she have advocating supporting Hitler?

Nicole Kidman faces backlash over Trump comments



It seems like Nicole Kidman's pitch for unity has backfired.
The Hawaii-born actress, who was raised in Australia, said it's time to let go and accept the results of the election.
"I would just say he's now elected," Kidman said in an interview with the BBC earlier this week. "And we as a country need to support whoever the president is, because thatís what the countryís based on."
Kidman's comments were met with backlash on social media.


However, others were pleased to hear an opinion from Kidman that differs greatly from most of her Hollywood colleagues.

Waiting for Trump to tweet that Nicole Kidman is a very underrated actress.

Re: Nicole Kidman Says Itís Time to Support Donald Trump

Nicole has as much right to say what she wants as Meryl or any other person in the public eye.

This tit for tat stuff is juvenile - which is why I expect an incoming tweet from Donnie in short order.

That being said, as an American, I'm under no obligation to support a man I believe to be completely incompetent and dangerous and I resent being told by anyone I should.

Re: Nicole Kidman Says Itís Time to Support Donald Trump

This is missleading/clickbait. Sounds like Kidman is Trump's supporter which she isn't. She has even donated money to Clinton.

Her point is that Americans should support the President whoever it is, as result can't be changed. Now you can agree or disagree but this is what it's all about.
Probably she tried to be diplomatic or sth and failed completely but let's not assume things that aren't true.
Probably she was facepalming when she saw this headline making the news.

Re: Nicole Kidman Says Itís Time to Support Donald Trump

I don't think it sounds like she is a Trump supporter. It seems to me she knew exactly what she was saying, that she believes "we" should get behind whoever is elected President.

I don't agree with her but the headline, imo, is not misleading.

I guess she means it's kind of like when you get some horrible disease, and once the initial shock wears off, you resolve to fight it.

Re: Nicole Kidman Says Itís Time to Support Donald Trump

Nicole Kidman tried to make Hollywood see reality, for a moment. Overall, it is not too good at that. Thus, there will probably be a backlash in Hollywood.

Kudos to Nicole.
