It is a pleasant surprise when we find out that a person in Hollywood is capable of thinking for themselves.
Actor Chris Tucker is friends with some big name Democrats like Bill Clinton and Obama, but during a recent interview he said that he prays for Trump and wants him to succeed.
The Caldron Pool reports:
Chris Tucker asked about President Trump, refuses to trash him: ‘I pray for him… I want him to be successful.’
Comedian Chris Tucker appeared on Good Morning Britain last week where he told host Piers Morgan that he prays for President Trump and hopes his presidency is a success.
Morgan asked the Rush Hour star, “Do you consider him your president? … Trump is obviously an incredibly divisive figure… What do you feel about that?”
“You know what, I hope he does a good job,” Tucker responded.
“I pray for him. I pray for him, I say listen, I hope he does a good job because we need, you know, a great president. We need a lot of things to happen in our country in America, so I hope he does good.”
“I hope tomorrow he wakes up and he does the right thing… I want him to be successful,” he said.

The rest of Hollywood could learn a lesson in decency from Mr. Tucker.
Instead, they’re obsessed with dark thoughts.

Tired, Boring—and Dangerous—Celebrity Death Wishing
A veritable mini-industry of celebrity calls for Trump’s violent death or assassination is now old and boring—and getting dangerous.
As if on cue, actors, singers, comedians, and banal entertainers compete with each other to hope for the most gruesome manner of killing the president—and thereby insidiously lowering the bar for unhinged minds of what could be conceivable or even acceptable to big screen icons and popular culture’s cool crowd.
The late celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain mused about poisoning Trump.
Musician David Crosby thought of incineration.
Actor Johnny Depp and rapper Snoop Dogg preferred shooting.
Former CNN host Kathy Griffin, comedian George Lopez, and singer Marilyn Manson all imagined decapitation.
None of this would have been tolerated during the Obama years.
It would have been unthinkable.
