Bill Murray: GOP tax reform ‘fantastic’ for corporations, akin to ‘high tide raising all boats’


Recommended Posts


Actor and comedian Bill Murray called the Republican tax reform “fantastic” for corporations, said it has “made things easier” and likened it to the “high tide raising all boats.”

“The change in the tax law is a great thing for the corporations, it’s a fantastic thing,” Murray revealed during CNBC’s “Squawk Box” Friday.

“I don’t pretend to understand what that will mean in the future in terms of the economy or what the budget will have to do to take care of what people call entitlements,” he continued. “In the first step, 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.”

What did Murray have to say about America’s cultural divide?

Murray pointed out that he sees a “clash of clans first thing in the morning, every day” and “people going to war about so much” as the American cultural rift continues to widen.

But amid growing political polarization, Murray observed that others are trying to take a different approach.

“How can Kristen Wiig make everyone laugh? She’s not thinking about being political; she’s thinking about what resonates and what is common to all of us,” Murray noted. “I think that that’s harder and harder to do because people are trying to win their point of view as opposed to saying, ‘What if I had spoke[n] to everyone?’”


Back off, man-he's making sense.
