Mark Desvaux, ‘Breaking Bad’ star Bryan Cranston discuss intolerant move to Canada if Trump wins

Liberals love to claim they are the intolerant class, but now it’s Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston who is talking about leaving America if the election doesn’t go his way and Donald Trump win.

B.C.-based co-host Mark Desvaux had asked the actor whether he would be interested in an extended vacation to Vancouver should the Republican nominee win.

“It wouldn’t be a vacation; I’d be an expatriate,” Cranston replied. “Absolutely. I would definitely move. It’s not real to me that that would happen. I hope to God it won’t.”

The discussion fell on the idea of playing Trump, whom the Malcolm in the Middle star described as a “tragic, Shakespearean character.”

“For me to play someone like Donald Trump, I would first need to have some time to calm down from him because I do have a judgment of him, and it’s virtually impossible to play someone that you have a judgment on, because then you’re slanted,” he told Desvaux and London-based co-host Mark Stay.

“I need to come at it from a place of neutrality so that I can build a character and justify what I say, what I do, at all times. It’s hard for me to imagine trying to justify what this man has said and done.”

Neutrality seemed like a laughable premise considering the conversation, but Desvaux never questioned the premise.

The View co-host Raven-Symoné claimed back in February she would move her whole family to Canada.

“I already have my ticket,” she said. “I literally bought my ticket. I swear.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was asked during a question-and-answer period at American University in March how he would deal with a potential influx of U.S. immigrants.

“Every election season, there are people who swear that if the candidate they don’t like gets elected, they’re moving to Canada,” Trudeau said. “If over the past decades that were the case, we would have more people in Canada than in the U.S. instead of being one-tenth your size.”

Unlike hypocrites like Michael Moore, Cranston has already backed Clinton. In November he told Politico’s Mike Allen he wishes the former secretary of state was “more to the center or even to the right” on monetary issues.

“I’m a social liberal but a fiscal conservative,” he said. “I don’t run my house that way. I don’t buy things I can’t pay for.”
