I hate when actors get political. Hate it. But he is a comedian first, and when we start dictating what a comedian can and cannot talk about, just because it doesn't align with our view, well, the world becomes a little sadder.

Fair comment from the man. He's as much right to voice his opinion as anyone else.

Cleese is a funny guy when he is saying british jokes.  But who the F*** cares what HE thinks of USA politics.  Put a sock in the pie hole, mate.

I don't care about American Comedians' and Actors' opinions on political matters.  I sure as hell don't care about an English Comedian's. 

Stick with your roll, John.  You're excellent in Monty Python.  Don't piss off your base.

megrendel Imma go out on a limb and guess the vast majority of Monty Pythons Base would identify as Christian, yet they still made Life of Brian.  Perhaps he doesn't give a shit about what his "base" cares about.

OR he just doesn't feel the need to care about Trump Supporters given Trumps vileness.

OR perhaps he just isn't PC enough for your liking?

megrendel I don't think the problem is John Cleese.  If he's hitting too close to home perhaps you need to look in the mirror and see the where the problem really is?

normalfreak2 hear hear!

It might be that JC is just saying what most of the rest of the world has already thought. So I am not surprised to read the "we dont care what a non-American thinks" comments. 

1. Perhaps you should care what your peers think of your actions.
2. That response is the same of my 6 yo niece when she gets caught doing something stupid.

It is fairly unanimously agreed with globally, that Trump is being a fool. You can continue to sit there with your fingers in your ears singing la la la, or do something about it.

Either way, stamping feet yelling 'we dont care what you think', wont change the way the world thinks - but it will affect the way the world will act/respond in the future.

normalfreak2 The problem is I watch Monty Python for laughs.

Could care less about his political view.  Just makes people not want to watch his humor.

megrendel Has nothing to do with any political views. John is just able to spot a moron when he sees one and trump definitely fits that description. Whether trump is conservative, liberal, green, whatever....he'd still be a moron. 
As an example...
After trump disclosed sensitive classified information in a meeting with two Russians, Deputy National Security Adviser Dina Powell told reporters, "This story is false. The president only discussed the common threats that both countries faced."
but the following morning, trump got onto Twitter and said he had an "absolute right" to share information about "terrorism and airline flight safety."
By doing that, he not only undermined at least one of his own people by exposing them as a liar, he also let every agency outside of the USA that if they share intelligence with the USA, their idiotic leader can't keep his fucking mouth shut and will spread information around to make himself appear superior.
He's a man baby with a desperate need to appear superior.
One look at the time he pushed another world leader off to the side so that he could be in front should be all you need to see what kind of person he is.
