One of Hollywood’s living legends has declared that he will be supporting the Republican candidate for president.
The universally loved actor/director Clint Eastwood has formally and publically announced that he will be backing Donald Trump in his bid to take the Oval Office.
Eastwood says that Trump is “onto something because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p***y generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff.”
He continues, “When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist. And then when I did ‘Gran Torino’ even my associate said, ‘This is a really good script, but it’s politically incorrect.’ And I said, ‘Good. Let me read it tonight.’ The next morning, I came in and I threw it on his desk and I said, ‘We’re starting this immediately.’”
The star did admit that Trump has said some troubling things, but that is because Eastwood believes trump says what is on his mind.
Eastwood then had some advice for everyone, and specifically whoever wins in November “I’d say get to work and start being more understanding of everybody—instead of calling everybody names, start being more understanding. But get in there and get it done. Kick ass and take names. And this may be my dad talking, but don’t spend what you don’t have. That’s why we’re in the position we are in right now. That’s why people are saying, ‘Why should I work? I’ll get something for nothing, maybe.’”
Social media and the internet have blown up over Eastwood’s comments. Many people have expressed disagreement with his views, saying:
“Damn Eastwood I knew you had problems before and I gave you the benefit of a doubt. But now I know you’re messed-up upstairs for real. Your elevator just like Trumps don’t go all the way to the top.”- Rios mike
“Sorry, Eastwood I thought you were smarter than this.”- John Christopher Tennant
“”Those things were not racist in my day” yeah , in your day, blacks were not permitted to eat at the same restaurant as you!” What a disappointment he is!”- Kristina_Hoerler
“So why not just bring out the Colt’s and start spraying around some heavy lead, Clint? You are not a racist if you just choose to kill everyone.” William_Spencer
“What, we’re supposed to listen to Clint Eastwood’s opinions? Why?”- Daniel Rosen
Of course, plenty of people happen to agree with Eastwood’s opinions. Many of these people are saying things like:
“So Clinton is a better choice than Trump? Sad sad day America”- Karen King
“Trump/Eastwood would have been another good choice, but I like Pence. Anything is better than that lesbian devil who gave weapons to ISIS!”-James Yu
“…we’re supposed to believe the corrupt felon that will give us four more miserable years is the obvious choice for president”- Vince Gavriledes
