Michael Shannon has not been holding back on his thoughts about President Elect Trump. I decided to post a few of the hilarious and dead-on quotes that have come out of his mouth the last few days because, well, Shannon is pissed off. Courtesy of Metro.
"I’m on tenterhooks here. I have two young children. Basically this man is probably going to destroy the earth and civilization as we know it. It’s kind of terrifying."
"The wall isn’t between the U.S. and Mexico; the wall is between people who voted for Trump and people who didn’t. And we’ve got to do something about it. I don’t want to live in a country where people voted for Trump. I want to live some other f—ing country. But I don’t want to run away. So we’re just going to have to bust thing thing up."
"There’s a lot of old people who need to realize they’ve had a nice life, and it’s time for them to move on. Because they’re the ones who go out and vote for these assholes. If you look at the young people, between 18 and 25, if it was up to them Hillary would have been president. No offense to the seniors out there. My mom’s a senior citizen. But if you’re voting for Trump, it’s time for the urn."
When the interviewer told Shannon that her parents voted for Trump and she doesn't know what to tell them he replied "F— ’em. You’re an orphan now. Don’t go home. Don’t go home for Thanksgiving or Christmas. Don’t talk to them at all. Silence speaks volumes."
Shannon is in, count 'em, six movies this year (Elvis and Nixon, Nocturnal Animals, Midnight Special, Complete Unknown, Frank and Lola and Loving.) The man is a working beast and it doesn't look like it's going to stop any time soon, he's set to be in 6 other films being released next year.
