Clint Eastwood tells everyone to get over Trump’s comments and blasts today’s generations’ sensitivity.

It might be interesting to get the perspective of what is going on in the mind of a man who grew up with perhaps the same values as Donald Trump did. It might make people understand where all of Trump’s ideology originates from.

Especially if it is from one of the respected and credible icons such as Clint Eastwood. Known for his acting, directing and producing credits around the world, Mr. Eastwood had a thing or two to say about Trump’s campaign, today’s generation and his speech involving an empty chair. 

Talking in an interview with the Esquire magazine, he said that Trump might be onto something. We must remember that since last year, Trump has pretty much rampaged against all immigrant, foreigners, Muslims and women so in short, everyone who is not a white male with an inbred hatred for the world has to be shunned according to Mr. Trump who is currently the Republican presidential candidate.

Eastwood sees nothing wrong with Trump’s ideology. He admire Trump for his disregard of political correctness and racist views. He has told everyone else in his interview to get over it. 

He said that today’s generation was sensitive in a way that they were worried about hurting the sentiments of everyone and regard everything. He said that when he was growing up, it was not called racism.

He said that both of the political sides had their own share of stupid things to say and do. He called the current political state a sad time in history.

When asked who he would vote for, he said that he was not supporting either of the candidates but he would have to go for Trump. His reason that he stated for not supporting Clinton was because she had promised to follow in President Obama’s footsteps. 

Talking about Obama, his speech with the President in the empty chair back in 2012 at the Republican National Convention was also brought up. He admitted that he regretted it as a stupid thing to do. He said that it was a whim of the moment kind of thing that had political repercussions on a whole.
