Kelsey Grammer BBC Interview Cut Short After Conservative Actor Said He Still Supports Trump

(Congressional Agenda) – Outspoken conservative actor Kelsey Grammer, most famously known for his role as Dr. Frasier Crane, appeared on BBC Radio 4’s “Today” program to chit-chat about his hit show, “Frasier” being rebooted. However, he made a reference to the resurgence of fellow comedian and television actress Roseanne Barr, a very bold supporter of former President Donald Trump, which then led the show’s host, Justin Webb, to ask Grammer about his thoughts concerning Trump and his ability to stay relevant politically, despite not holding any sort of public office at the moment.

They don’t seem to have liked Grammer’s answer as the interview was cut short, BizPac Review reports.

“I gotta ask you about politics before we finish. You mentioned Roseanne early on who had a great comeback, but also was a Trump supporter,” Webb said during the interview. “You were — at least you were — a Trump supporter. I’m fascinated to know if you still are.”

Without a moment’s hesitation, Grammer asserted, “I am, and that’s — I’ll let that be the end of it.”

“That, according to Webb, wasn’t the entirety of the story. As it happened, the host went on to explain that it was the public relations team for streaming service Paramount+, where the actor’s third act as the renowned psychiatrist is available, who saw fit to cut short the Trump talk,” the BPR piece stated.

“I have to say, actually, Kelsey Grammer himself was perfectly happy to go on talking about it. The Paramount+ PR people, less happy that he talked about it at some length so we…They decided we’d had plenty of time for our interview,” noted Webb.

“But I should stress that he was perfectly happy to talk about why he supports Donald Trump and still does in the forthcoming election,” the host continued.

This is not the first time that Grammer has shared his political beliefs publicly in an interview. During a conversation with Christiane Amanpour for her PBS show, “Amanpour and Company,” the reporter asked him if his public declaration of support for Donald Trump led to his taking “any hits in Hollywood…Did you feel that you were sort of marginalized.”

“I’m not aware of taking a hit for it but now, certainly passions run high, and certainly he has touched on an extraordinarily passionate response,” the actor responded. “I don’t know if it’s as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be.”

In the course of that interview, Grammer gave a scathing criticism of the folks within the federal government, saying, “I don’t think Washington didn’t do us any favors for the last 50, 60 years, I think they’ve all been sort of of the same party, the same bunch of clowns, the same bunch of really unpleasant people. And I don’t think they’ve been helping anybody but themselves.”

  1. I always enjoyed Frasier. However, I now understand why his show RARELY featured Black or Brown characters. It’s disappointing to learn that KG is a died in the wool racist.
