Politics is a pretty depressing arena these days. Everybody is on the attack, there is little consensus, and the general atmosphere is one of anger and division. Sometimes it seems like nothing will ever bring this country together again.
It’s just a rumor at this point, but it’s a fun one! Apparently such rumors have been in the air for years, but have really heated up recently. It’s been a frequent topic on several talk radio stations in Texas. One online publication called Texas Takes thinks things are leaning further to yay than nay. They even think he might be able to win.
A recent article on their site compiles a variety of the Dazed and Confused actor’s recent activity, in which he urges people to wear masks:

Gave an inspiring commencement speech to the class of 2020:

He also sat down with Emmanuel Acho for his series “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man” during the recent Black Lives Matters protests:

None of these appearances feature the beloved, Oscar-winning actor announcing that he’s running for office but he’s certainly not being shy about stepping out and being a voice of reason for Texans and Americans in general.
So while we may not have Governor Matthew McConaughey in office anytime soon, I think, based on his recent efforts and general humanity, it would be a lot cooler if we did!
