Henry Winkler: Trump’s ‘Life’s Blood Is the Sound of Appreciation or Adulation’


Henry Winkler appeared on MSNBC this morning for a conversation with Hugh Hewitt that mostly focused on President Trump.

Hewitt asked the Happy Days and Arrested Development star if he considers Trump to be “an actor.”

Winkler said not quite:

“I don’t think he’s an actor. I do believe that he is completely self-possessed or obsessed. And it’s very interesting. This is what he does. When the crowd goes wild for him, he moves his ear closer to the sound. You watch it, it happens every time… His life’s bread, his life’s blood is the sound of appreciation or adulation or whatever.”

Hewitt asked him if he has anything good to say about the President. Winkler simply said, “I’ll get back to you on that.”

Hewitt asked, “Is there anything President Trump can do to persuade Henry Winkler that he has the country’s best interest at heart? Anything that he can say, do…”

“Do. Not say anymore,” Winkler answered. “I think we’re way past words, because you never know who you’re going to see. You never know, the real Donald comes out and then there is the guy who says, ‘All right, I’ll do it. I’ll read what I’m supposed to.'”
