CANNES, FRANCE – MAY 21: Actor Clint Eastwood attends “The Clint Eastwood Cinema Lesson” during the 70th annual Cannes Film Festival at Palais des Festivals on May 21, 2017 in Cannes, France.
In the liberal world of Hollywood, it’s considered extremely risky to an entertainer’s career to “come out” as a supporter of Donald Trump.
Luckily, there are still legends like Clint Eastwood around that don’t give a hoot what a bunch of liberal nitwits think.
American News reported that liberals are furious at Eastwood after he said that Trump is “not racist” in a recent interview.
He added that the GOP presidential nominee is instead just saying what’s on everyone’s mind.
Eastwood went on to attack Barack Obama, saying he has no business in the White House before slamming him for refusing to work with Congress. He then criticized Obama’s entire generation of supporters, saying they are entitled and don’t want to do the work that is required of them.
Eastwood’s son Scott pointed out that his father is from “a tougher generation that valued hard work [and] integrity.” He concluded that this hard-working attitude is what made his father successful and what keeps him working to this day at the age of 86.
Clint Eastwood told Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity today that conservatives in Hollywood are afraid to reveal their political beliefs. “There is a group of people in Hollywood that are conservative, but by the nature of the word itself, they’re just reticent to speak out. And they’re reticent because they feel that they’ll maybe lose work, or they’ll be chastised in some way for having political views,” he said. The interview with the Oscar winner will play on Hannity tonight at 9 PM ET. (Check out a sneak peek below). A public supporter of Mitt Romney, Eastwood made similar statements about conservatives in Hollywood during his surprise speech on the closing night of the Republican National Convention in August. Calling himself “crazy,” the actor responded afterward to the criticism he received and the distraction it caused the GOP nominee by saying his speech was never vetted. Eastwood has since appeared in a pro-Romney ad.
In the sit-down today, Hannity asked Eastwood about why he interviewed an empty chair at the RNC as if President Obama was sitting in it. The actor said it just came to him as he was going onstage. “At the time I thought this is — this — that was really stupid. Why did I do that? But then afterwards, I thought, you know, people started coming out and saying, well, that was fun. And maybe a little fun was what I was looking for. I don’t know,” Eastwood said. The actor told the Fox News host that he was glad for the strong reaction the routine received. “Because — yeah, well, that’s good if it makes the right people angry, and good, that’ll wake them up a little bit,”
