Letter: Actor wrong to give voting advice

Matt Damon gives a commencement speech to MIT graduates and takes cheap shots at Donald Trump and Wall Street. Really? He makes millions of dollars a year pretending to be someone else in movies, flies around the world in his Learjet and lives in a home that burns more fossil fuel in a day above an average American home.

He lives in a culture — Hollywood — that is a drug infested, alcohol-abusing phony atmosphere, yet tells young people how to vote? Really?

We have approximately half the people in our country who are Republicans and half Democrats — does he realize he destroys half his client base when he takes sides? Who is the stupid one?
