Bryan Cranston Wants Donald Trump to Yell at Him on Twitter
"He is going to be my president, and I truly hope he does an exceptionally good job."
Bryan Cranston is still holding out hope that Donald Trump will attack him on Twitter for making fun of the president-elect last weekend on Saturday Night Live.
Cranston thrilled fans when he brought back his Breaking Bad character, Walter White, as the head of the DEA to poke fun at Trump's actual, controversial Cabinet picks. Cranston on Tuesday told Today's Matt Lauer that SNL creator Lorne Michaels called and invited him on for the bit, which Cranston jumped at, he said.
Trump, a notorious tweeter, often uses the social media platform to criticize what he doesn't like, such as SNL making fun of him on a fairly regular basis.
Now, Cranston wants his, he told Lauer.
"I want one!" Cranston said. "Donald, please. Tweet-tweet."
Cranston, who stars in the upcoming holiday comedy Why Him?, said Trump was not "his candidate," but he hopes the billionaire businessman and former reality show star succeeds in the White House.
"He is going to be my president, and I truly hope he does an exceptionally good job," Cranston said. "I really do, because if that is true, then he has done well for the country, and that's much more important than who I personally wanted to be president."
