Days after going on Saturday Night Live as his Breaking Bad character Walter White to lampoon President-elect Donald Trump’s cabinet picks, actor Bryan Cranston went on NBC’s Today show as himself to promote his new film Why Him?. However, he also gave a refreshing perspective on the election..
Speaking to host Matt Lauer on Tuesday, Cranston said he was hoping to get a shout out from Trump, who avidly tweets his displeasure of the show’s cold open sketches.
“You didn’t get any tweets from Donald Trump, by the way, congratulations!” Lauer said.
“No, I want one.” Cranston replied, who then at the instruction of Lauer turned to the camera and motioned his hands as if he was tweeting. “Donald, please, tweet-tweet, tweet-tweet.”
Despite the jokes, Cranston, who backed Hillary Clinton during the campaign, had a message of support for Trump.
“He is going to be my president, and I truly hope he does an exceptionally good job,” Cranston said. “I really do, because if that is true, then he has done well for the country, and that’s much more important than who I personally wanted to be president.”
Before the election, Cranston vowed to move to Canada if Trump was elected president. And instead of sulking like most liberals, Cranston turned the corner and came back to reality.
