File this under, “actors who think they can become politicians.”
Kelsey Grammer plays the Mayor of Chicago in his new drama “Boss” on the Starz network, but apparently he thinks he’s got what it takes to be the actual non-fake mayor of real New York City.
The conservative Republican hints at a mayoral run after he’s done with acting, “I look at my political aspirations as that last piece of my life, where I hope to do something good for people and pay back a little.”
He also claims he has the ego to become a great politician, because he thinks that good actors and good politicians both have to have a “narcissistic personality,” and “you certainly have to have a resilient ego,” says Grammer. This is code for “must act like a total d*ck.”
Grammer, like most people, thinks he knows how to solve our national debt crisis better than the government, “Even the solution they are talking about now – the 10-year $3-trillion solution – that has to be paid for. Nobody is talking about actually getting rid of the debt that exists already. That doesn’t make any sense. It’s first-grade math,” Grammer said.
Grammer, who obviously excels at “first-grade math” has already launched a right-winged cable channel called Rightnetwork whose slogan is “All that’s Right with the world.” Republican puns?! C’mon man!
Who knows, one day Alec Baldwin and Kelsey Grammer might be going head-to-head fighting to become mayor of NYC. Let’s hope that zombie apocalypse happens before this day comes.
