Hollywood celebrities have routinely attacked Donald Trump using the most vile and profane names imaginable, since the very day he announced for office.
But one famous actor, who once joined others in claiming he would leave the country if Trump got elected, has reportedly been won over by the President’s performance in office.
Pierce Brosnan, who most famously played James Bond in 4 films mainly in the 1990s had high praise for the businessman-turned-president when it comes to the economy.
Brosnan once suggested he might leave the United States because of President Trump, but he now acknowledges there’s been a big bright spot during his presidency: the economy.
“I think what he’s done for the economy is very good,” Brosnan told ITK in a recent interview when asked where he stood as far as potentially fleeing the country.
“People are working, and that’s a step in the right direction,” the “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” star said.
“This country is part of my life,” said the Irish-born performer, who played James Bond in four of the franchise’s films. “I’m an American citizen. I love America and America’s been very good to me. And I want to see happiness come back into our society.”
Wow. A celebrity who actually loves and appreciates America, instead of running it down as racist and imperialist. Very refreshing and rare.
But needless to say, those on the left were not exactly pleased with Pierce’s praise of #OrangeManBad:

Tell that to the kids dying in cages.— Gordon Preece (@gordonpreece) December 19, 2019
Tell that to the people dying because they can’t afford insulin.
Tell that to the people taken off food stamps.
Tell that to the people who have lost healthcare.
Tell that to the people drinking filthy water.
I am sure they will be thrilled.

Yes, Hitler made sure the trains ran on time. Not the point. Stop playing at politics and try to learn to be an actor.— Leslie Philibert (@PhilibertLeslie) December 19, 2019

And there it is. All Trump supporters care about is themselves while the rest of us care about democracy and humanity!— Jann Canaday (@janncanaday) December 19, 2019
But not everyone was upset about it.
Almost 4 million jobs created since election.— DrakeR🇺🇸🐻🇺🇸 (@Beartimaeus) December 19, 2019
More Americans are now employed than ever recorded before in our history.
We have created more than 400,000 manufacturing jobs since my election.
Manufacturing jobs growing at the fastest rate in more than THREE DECADES.
Thank you, Mr. Brosnan!
