Potential Candidate for Texas Gov Matthew McConaughey Says Anti-Maskers Aren’t ‘Really Scared’
Actor Matthew McConaughey has questioned the true motivations of anti-maskers while teasing his potential bid for governor of Texas.
During an interview on the OZY’s The Carlos Watson Show, McConaughey suggested that people who vehemently oppose wearing masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic were being disingenuous about their reasoning for doing so.
McConaughey argued that the issue had become too politicized and advocated for masks as small sacrifices that would eventually pay dividends.
“We’ve got to make some sacrifices for larger rewards tomorrow,” said McConaughey in a preview clip posted Thursday of the unaired interview. “I think the best example for my money this last year is the damn dispute over the masks that got politicized.”
“I’m like, come on man, I’m not believing you’re really scared of this little cotton thing,” he continued. “And I’m not believing you really feel that takes away your identity and your freedom. This is a short-term inconvenience for long-term freedom.”
Watson brought up rumors that McConaughey is considering a run for Texas governor and asked the actor whether the prospect of entering the world of politics would give him a “buzz” or be “challenging.”
“Challenging it definitely would be, but I don’t know if that’s the buzz,” McConaughey said. “I’m not interested in going and putting a bunch of Band-Aids on that are gonna be ripped off as soon as I’m out. I’m interested in building something that can last.”
McConaughey said that he had not yet come to a decision but was “measuring” a potential future outside of acting, while remaining unsure of whether or not that would take place in the political arena. – Source
