Donald Trump just emerged from a self-imposed Week in Political Purgatory, and that’s not good news for The Trumpster, but it’s not all bad. At least The Man With No Name Who Talks To Chairs appreciates him.
Clint Eastwood says that he hasn’t endorsed any candidate for president, but given a choice between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, he’d choose the latter.
“That’s a tough one, isn’t it? I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps,” Eastwood says in Esquire’s September issue. “There’s been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She’s made a lot of dough out of being a politician. I gave up dough to be a politician. I’m sure that Ronald Reagan gave up dough to be a politician.”
Eastwood was clear that he hasn’t endorsed anyone — “I haven’t talked to Trump. I haven’t talked to anybody.” — but he was praiseworthy of the Republican nominee for being “onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up.”
In fact, Eastwood said that “we’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.”
He added, “You know, he’s a racist now because he’s talked about this judge. And yeah, it’s a dumb thing to say. I mean, to predicate your opinion on the fact that the guy was born to Mexican parents or something. He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides. But everybody—the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just fucking get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”
Fucking A and Hell Yeah! That’s right! Racism? That’s sooooooo politically correct. Just fucking get over it! Look at Trump and his supporters. They’re over racism except when they say they’re being discriminated based upon being White.
Eastwood is right that it’s a sad time in history, but what’s even sadder is when people you liked when you were both young turn into somebody you can’t stand when you both get old and nothing screams Old Guy Talkin’ Like a Gibbering Idiot than beginning a sentence with “When I grew up…”
When you grew up Clint it was still a popular way to spend a slow Friday night by burning down Black folks houses and lynching the ones who complained! That your idea of The Good Ol’ Days? You feeling a bit wistful and misty-eyed about the open bigotry of your youth, Clint?
Anybody got Clint’s address? I’d like to send him some fan mail.
Yeah, I know we’re all a bunch of p.c. pussies today and not real men like you who drop babies all over the country and scream at chairs, but I gotta tell ya, man, it would be a lot easier to “fucking get over” racism if old bastards like you would stop being so fucking racist.
