Actor Matthew McConaughey is touting a possible gubernatorial run in Texas after bashing the Texas heartbeat bill, and praising failed presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke.
McConaughey appeared on Sway podcast tor an interview with New York Times‘ Kara Swisher and said that he has a problem with the heartbeat bill, claiming that the pro-life law is "juvenile."
“This latest move by Texas,” feels like “sort of a Roe v. Wade loophole,” he said. “It feels a little juvenile in its implementation to me. And also: six weeks. Six weeks? If you’re saying that your discussion of abortion is even on the table to consider, six weeks does not really make that an honest consideration.”

Swisher played a clip of O’Rourke responding to McConaughey not revealing his stance on political issues. In the clip, the failed presidential candidate said the following:
[McConaughey]’s a really popular figure whose political views have not in any way been fixed. I don’t know — for example — who he voted for in the most consequential election since 1864 in this country. I don’t know how he feels about any of the issues that we brought up — he’s a good guy who has done some good work in this state, and he’s a great actor.
While Swisher said she believes O’Rourke’s comments were “shade,” McConaughey said he didn’t feel the same way, and went on to praise the former Texas representative, who he says “believes in what he’s selling.”
“Coming from Beto, I don’t take that as shade,” the actor said. “I’d say he’s a good man. Maybe he believes in what he’s selling, and his heart is in the right place, and he’s got the right kind of compassion that a liberal-sided politician needs and is necessary.”
McConaughey also explained that that reason he is not revealing where he stands on the political spectrum yet is because “taking sides on a political issue right now, to me, precedes the discussion of something larger and much more important,” such as questions about the “purpose of democracy,” and “what the hell is politics?”
“Do we really want to be a United States of America?” he asked asked. “It’s a question we’ve got to answer.”
All I have to say is that I have always liked McConaughey, but this has definitely put him on my ick list. I do not trust anyone who praises Beto and bashes allowing unborn babies live.
