Mrs Brown’s Boys’ Brendan O’Carroll talks battle with sleepless nights after Trump news

Donald Trump: House reaches votes for presidential impeachment

Mrs Brown’s Boys actor Brendan O’Carroll, 65, splits his time between Ireland and America, where he owns a home in Florida. Following the news Joe Biden, 78, had won the election and will be the next President, he said: “When Trump goes I’ll actually be able to get some sleep.”

He went on to say: “As soon as the election was announced for Joe Biden, in my circle of friends, you could see the weight coming off their shoulders.”

Brendan went on to say he had “been exhausted going, ‘What did he say? What did he do?’ about Trump over the past four years.

The Mrs Brown’s Boys creator added he feared the President could start a nuclear war “if he didn’t like someone”.

“Not for any political reason, or because he disagrees with them ideologically — just because he’s a ‘me, me’ sort of guy,” he added to The Irish Sun.

Mr Biden won the race to become the next US president on November 3.

The inauguration of the new President will take place on Wednesday and Trump will not be attending.

Trump made history as the first President to be impeached twice by the US Congress after a bipartisan vote in the House of Representatives charged him with “inciting” the Capitol Hill riots earlier this month.

Five people died after protestors vandalised and broke into the US Capitol building in Washington DC, after Trump urged his supporters to march and protest following the result.

The President said his remarks before the riot were “totally appropriate” and has called preparations to impeach him in US Congress “absolutely ridiculous”.

It’s not the first time Brendan has shared his thoughts on Trump running America.

Ahead of the election, he said those voting for Trump may like him because he’s a “bully”.

“I love America. It’s very much home for us but it is polarised,” he said on RTE’s Claire Byrne show.

He added: “Americans like a bully because they are themselves not too confrontational.

“They like to keep things calm so if they see someone being a bully that they can follow they are happy to do that.”

Before the result was revealed, Brendan believed it would be a “close to a landslide for Biden”.

The actor added he and his wife Jenny Gibney are “political junkies” who would stay up for the election results.

Away from politics, Brendan revealed he had signed a deal to create Mrs Brown’s Boys festive specials for the BBC until 2026.

He told the publication: “It’s incredible that the BBC have nailed down such a special slot for Mrs Brown.

“We’ve been doing it for nine years already — which is six more than the Royale Family had and more than Morecambe and Wise.

“This new deal we signed last week goes all the way to 2026, which means I will be able to grow into the part, and we’ve a clause in which guarantees Mrs Brown is aired at 10pm on Christmas night, or else we don’t have to make it.”

Mrs Brown’s Boys airs tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
