Bill Murray Praises Republican Tax Cuts, Attacks Divisive Politics

He said Democrats should try to appeal to everyone not just minorities.

Bill Murray recently sat down with CNBC’s Squawk Box, and warned that political discourse had turned into a “Clash of Clans every day, first thing in the morning.” He said that people are going “to war about so much” and thinks that Democrats can be divisive because they are attempting to represent certain minorities instead of trying to just represent America.

“And they’re not speaking to everyone at once. And it’s almost demeaning to say, ‘I’m choosing you because you’re a splinter group or you’re a certain minority group.’ There’s almost a resentment that somehow you’re separated, again, by a politician — ‘You’re my people. I’m in control of you, I represent you,’ instead of thinking that each citizen has a right to be respected as a citizen first, under the laws of the country,'” he said, according to Daily Mail. 

The 67-year-old also discussed the Republican tax bill, which he said was a “great thing for corporations,” and that it’s “made things easier. I think people feel like there was probably too much regulation, and yet you just hope that they don’t throw out the baby with the bathwater when breaking down regulations.”
