Justin Webb, reporter for the BBC, has revealed that the conversation he had on his program with actor Kelsey Grammer was cut short by the folks at Paramount+ after the discussion turned to the outspoken Republican’s support for former President Donald Trump. And that’s not surprising at all, is it guys? If you dare to think outside of the deplorable groupthink that exists within Hollywood, you get proverbial duct tape slapped across your lips. The opposition must be silenced. The American people must not be allowed to hear any sort of narrative that departs from that which has received prior approval from the Democratic overlords in charge of the entertainment industry.
Here are more details via The Daily Wire’s latest report:
During the 68-year-old actor’s appearance on the “Today” program on BBC Radio 4, Grammer said the inspiration behind the network’s “Frasier” reboot came from the success Roseanne Barr found with the 2018 “Roseanne” reboot, a show later rebranded as “The Connors,” killing off Barr after she posted controversial tweets, Entertainment Weekly reported.
“You mentioned Roseanne early on, who had a great comeback but also was a Trump supporter,” Webb went on to ask the actor during the interview. “You were, at least you were, a Trump supporter. I’m fascinated to know if you still are?”
“I am,” Grammer replied. “And I’ll let that be the end of it.”
Kelsey Grammer's recent BBC interview was short-lived as soon as he started talking about Donald Trump — and it wasn't the outlet's decision … so says one of their radio hosts. https://t.co/b88E2lf5Qc pic.twitter.com/gq82zYXQEp

After the segment, Webb told his co-host that “Kelsey Grammer himself was perfectly happy to go on talking about it [his support of Trump]. The Paramount+ PR people, less happy that he talked about it at some length.”
Webb’s co-host suggested the network wouldn’t be happy with this revelation, and he replied, “They decided that we’d had plenty of time for our interview. But I should stress that he was absolutely perfectly happy to talk about why he supports Donald Trump and still does in the coming election.”
This is not the first time that Grammer has heaped praise on Trump. He did so back in a 2019 BBC interview as well.
“We’ve witnessed in American politics the same basic language since Ronald Reagan has been attached to every conservative president,” the conservative TV star explained. “But this is the first guy that ever kind of fires back and so it’s really unpleasant and they thought, of course, he shouldn’t be elected anyway.”
The actor recently reprised his most popular role as Dr. Frasier Crane on the streaming network which aired the series in October. The original run of “Frasier” earned dozens of Emmys and was on the air for eleven seasons.
Grammer was thrilled about rebooting the series and getting a chance to play the character, saying, ““We’ve been working on it honestly for about six or seven years. It’s been on the slow burner. We were like, this is not a bad idea. Maybe this is a good idea!”
It’s nice to see such a popular actor in Hollywood have the gumption to speak out publicly about his beliefs while not being concerned about the infamous blacklisting that typically happens to those who dare share their thoughts on the political climate of today.
