Kelsey Grammer Weighs In on the 2020 Presidential Race

Outspoken Hollywood conservative and 'Frasier' star also shared surprising thoughts about climate change

Actor Kelsey Grammer believes Donald Trump can get reelected to the presidency in 2020.

The “Frasier” and “15 Minutes” star was asked about the president and other political happenings in a recent interview with TMZ — and as one of Hollywood’s few outspoken conservatives, his answers were refreshing to hear.

Asked whether Donald Trump had a chance at winning the presidency again in 2020, Grammer replied, “I think he can win, yeah.”

The actor, who was with his wife, was also asked about climate change; Grammer sounded more skeptical than many of his entertainment industry colleagues.

“I do think there’s a warming trend. I’m willing to deal with that,” the actor said.

“You know, when we were kids, we were worried about the next Ice Age, so something’s happening. Something switched really fast. I think science likes to keep us jumping.”

Grammer added that he believes humans may be responsible for some warming of the planet, but he doesn’t believe global warming science is as concrete as some like to believe it is.

He continued, “We’ll see. Could be sunspot activity. They used to talk about that a lot, too, but I don’t know. I think man has definitely contributed some to what’s going on in our world. That’s what we do.”

Grammer’s wife, Kayte Walsh, with whom he shares two children, was a bit more blunt and forward with her thoughts about climate change.

“Everyone is being conned,” she said at one point about global warming alarmists and climate change fear-mongering.

Grammer, 63, also said he supported President Donald Trump in not signing a climate change statement at the recent G20 summit; it said climate change was “irreversible” and that countries needed to commit to fighting it.

“He’s got a couple ideas that might be different about it,” Grammer said about the president’s approach to climate change policies.

Grammer is most well-known for starring in the hit sitcom “Frasier,” which ran for 11 seasons and 263 episodes.

There have recently been rumors about a reboot of the popular series, which ended its run in 2004.

Grammer has also starred in such hit shows as “Cheers” (a forerunner to “Frasier”) and “The Simpsons.”

“He’s got a couple ideas that might be different about it,” Grammer said about the president’s approach to climate change policies.

For film roles, he’s appeared in hits like “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “X-Men: The Last Stand,” “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “The Expendables 3,” and “An American Carol.”

He also stars in the recently released Netflix comedy “Like Father,” which also features Kristen Bell and Seth Rogen.
