Most Americans know that Hollywood is a bastion of far-left liberalism that looks down upon average Americans who don’t subscribe to their radical worldview.
Hollywood’s intolerance was put on full display during this year’s Golden Globe Awards when lefty actress Meryl Streep went on a vicious anti-Trump tirade during her acceptance speech.
While the majority of Hollywood is vehemently anti-Trump, one actress is standing up to the left, and saying that America needs to support its newly-elected president.
Actress Nicole Kidman, who is married to country music star Keith Urban, told reporters during a red carpet appearance to promote her new film “Lion” that Trump is “now elected and we, as a country, need to support whoever is the president.”

From Fox News:
The actress, who lives in Nashville with her country superstar husband and holds dual Australian and American citizenship, added, “That is what the country is based on. And however that happened, it happened, and let’s go.”
Kidman’s opinion differs greatly from most of her Hollywood colleagues. Most recently, Meryl Streep was praised by her fellow celebrities for standing up against the President-elect in her Golden Globes acceptance speech.
However, there are some stars who are sick of their fellow entertainers’ political rants.
Country star Travis Tritt said on Twitter earlier this week, “If you have fans who respect your talent enough to spend hard earned money to see your talent, be thankful and gracious and leave it at that.”
Piers Morgan echoed Tritt’s words, adding he hasn’t “heard such elitist snobbery since Hillary Clinton branded Trump supporters ‘a basket of deplorables.’”
In the past, liberals have engaged in boycott campaigns to shame companies and public figures who dare and espouse conservative values, or don’t subscribe to their left wing ideology. Hopefully the left will not employ the same vicious tactics against Ms. Kidman and call for a boycott of her movies simply because she wants America to come together and support President-elect Trump.
