Eastwood Loves Trump Because He’s Not Politically Correct - Do You Agree?

You have to be pretty brave these days to speak your mind, particularly if you lean conservative; and even more particularly if you lean conservative in Hollywood. It should come as no surprise that one of Hollywood’s most famous ‘tough guys’ isn’t afraid to let his opinions be known. Clint
Eastwood, who endorsed Trump, says he’s sick of political correctness and treating people like fragile snowflakes.

Eastwood endorsed President Donald Trump because he said he thought the no-nonsense businessman was ‘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.’

It should come as no surprise that someone who grew up in the ‘Silent Generation’ feels the way Eastwood does. He grew up during the depression and World War II; people of this generation learned to pick themselves up by their own bootstraps and fend for themselves without complaining, hence the name of their generation. They valued hard work above all and tend to have a ‘suck it up and deal with it’ approach to life. The political correctness, which seems to run rampant these days, just didn’t exist.

“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,’” said Eastwood.

While Eastwood isn’t on board with everything the president says or does, overall he believes that Mr. Trump speaks his mind, and he believes the country needs that more than anything. Before the election, Mr. Eastwood offered the following advice for the winner: “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.’”
