Bryan Cranston got as “mad as hell” as his “Network” character on Sunday, using his Tony Award acceptance speech to chastise the president’s attacks on the media.

The “Breaking Bad” actor accepted the best leading actor Tony for his portrayal of a fed-up news anchor Howard Beale in “Network,” who famously says the line, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” And while Cranston didn’t mention President Trump by name, he criticized calling the media “the enemy of the people” — a phrase that Trump has used to describe the press in the past.

“I would like to dedicate this to all the real journalists around the world, both in the press, the print media and the broadcast media — who actually are in the line of fire with their pursuit of the truth,” Cranston, 63, said at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday.

“The media is not the enemy of the people. Demagoguery is the enemy of the people.”

I think “Network” is the perfect play for these troubled times. 

And Bryan Cranston is a national treasure.

    “In the Trump era, we’ve become accustomed to political grift looking a certain way: goofy, cartoonish, and almost entirely shameless. The president who swept into Washington full of promises to ‘drain the swamp’ has instead helped a whole rogue’s gallery of boosters, fans, and hangers-on into the public eye,”

    “The kind of grift Trumpworld traffics in is explosive and outrageous, creaking under the weight of its own shamelessness. For all those reasons, it’s also likely not to outstay its equally outrageous and shameless presidential lodestar,” he wrote, before concluding, “McConnell-style grift is a horse of a different color: quiet, unassuming, boring, built to last.”
