Matthew McConaughey: Coronavirus pandemic is getting "hijacked" by "partisan politics"


Matthew McConaughey went on F0X News on Tuesday night and told the host:

- "I could feel that this united purpose we all have as Americans to beat this enemy and this virus, that purpose got hijacked a bit by partisan politics.

- "All of a sudden the narrative became: if you want to go to work, you're on the far right. If you don't go to work, you want to stay home, you're on the far left. And now even the mask wearing is getting politicized, where if you want to wear a mask, you wear a mask, you're a liberal. And if you don't, you're conservative. And that's just not true."

- "This is not about politics, it's about us, the USA. We gotta take care of each other right now. We have a collective purpose. Look at who we are in World War II. And we have a crisis that came to us. We were united in that purpose. And all of a sudden the human factor started to get split and two tribes started fighting each other in partisan politics. And that is not what we need. We need a collection right now. This is a tug of war at the virus. We need all hands on the rope."

Here's his latest "USA. Just keep livin." PSA:
