- Frasier star is one of the few conservatives in Hollywood
- Grammer is currently starring in Man of La Mancha on London’s West End
- He says his Republican-leaning politics has not negatively impacted his career
Kelsey Grammer praised President Trump, blasted the ‘bunch of clowns’ running Washington, DC, and said his support for conservative politicians has not affected his career in liberal-dominated Hollywood.
‘I’m not aware of taking a hit for it [in my career] but now, certainly passions run high, and certainly he has touched on an extraordinarily passionate response,’ the Frasier star said of Trump during an interview with PBS.
‘I don’t know if it’s as serious or horrible as everybody wants it to be.’
Grammer was asked about Trump ‘disrupting the fabric’ of Washington, DC, to which he replied: ‘Well I think fabric being disrupted is a good thing.’

He added: ‘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 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.’
Grammer is currently in the United Kingdom, where he is starring in Man of La Mancha on London’s West End.
The show is currently on a six-week run at the London Coliseum.
In December 2017, Grammer told BBC Radio 4 that supporting the Republican Party in Hollywood was like having a ‘target on your back.’

‘I’m respected in the industry,’ Grammer said, though he added: ‘I am probably reviled in some of the back channels.’
Grammer was asked if he would ever consider running for office.
‘I don’t think so, it’s just too nasty now,’ he said.
‘I guess you could always rise above it, but just don’t think it’s really cut out for me anymore.’
When asked about Trump, he said: ‘I think he’s doing what he said he was going to do.
‘He’s a bit of a loudmouth, and he does shake things up, he promised a few things that I thought, “maybe he can get that done, maybe he can’t get that done”.
‘Donald Trump just won in a way, in a world where nobody thought he would.
‘And so there’s just anger – it’s filled with anger now.’
