Hillary Clinton refuses to release her up-to-date detailed medical records

The MSM no longer even bother to conceal their partisanship, but openly admit they are abandoning all pretenses of journalistic objectivity to promote and protect Hillary Clinton. See:

The latest example is ABC News taking down the web-page of a KABC radio interview with television personality Dr. Drew Pinsky, in which he called the symptoms displayed by Hillary “bizarre” and said he’s concerned about the “1950s level of care” Hillary is receiving because “It just seems like she’s getting care from somebody that she met in Arkansas when she was a kid.”

The MSM are trying to dismiss questions about Hillary’s health as malicious rumors of “conspiracy theorists,” one of the MSM’s favorite terms of abuse, as if there are no real conspiracies.

But if all is well with Hillary, let’s just settle this once and for all.

Let’s see Hillary Clinton’s up-to-date, detailed medical records! A website is even offering a $1 million reward for those records.

But she is refusing to do that.

Fox News reports Aug. 20, 2016, that the only medical record of Hillary which her campaign released was a SUMMARY from her doctor, Lisa Bardack, more than a year ago, declaring that Hillary was “fit to serve” as president. (In contrast, 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain released the full 1,173 pages of his medical records.)

In the July 28, 2015 letter, Dr. Bardack, an internist in Mount Kisco, N.Y., declared Hillary as:

“a healthy 67-year-old female whose current medical conditions include hypothyroidism and seasonal pollen allergies. Her past medical history is notable for a deep vein thrombosis in 1998 and in 2009, an elbow fracture in 2009 and a concussion in 2012…. Mrs. Clinton’s current medications include Armour Thyroid, antihistamines, Vitamin B12 and Coumadin…. In summary, Mrs. Clinton…is in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States.”

Note the careful choice of the word “include” in the phrase “whose current medical conditions include . . . .”

Below are screenshots I took of Dr. Bardack’s July 28, 2015 “Healthcare Statement” on Hillary Rodham Clinton. (You can see the original in PDF form here.)

Does this (see below) look to you like a woman “in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States”?

Hillary Clinton being helped up the stairs to a fundraiser in Charleston, SC, Feb. 24, 2016 — the same occasion when strange bulges on her back under her roomy green coat suggest she was wearing a defibrillator vest. The black man on her left is neurologist, Dr. Oladotun Okunola, who had been seen at her side, carrying a Diazepam auto-injector pen.

And does this hole in Hillary’s tongue look like she’s “in excellent physical condition and fit to serve as President of the United States”? Seriously?
Hillary's tongue1

This is the same Dr. Lisa Bardack who is rumored to have penned a one-page memo stating Hillary Clinton has a form of dementia called Subcortical Vascular Dementia, as well as worsening and more frequent black-outs, uncontrollable twitching, memory loss and complex partial brain seizures from that 2012 concussion. See below.

HillaryMedicalRecords by Lisa Bardack, MD

Last Thursday, Aug. 18, 2016, pressed about Hillary’s health, her campaign’s chief strategist Joel Benenson finally responded.

As reported by Nick Gass for Politico — the same Politico whose chief investigative reporter Ken Vogel obligingly colluded with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to protect Hillary  — Benenson said the campaign has no plans to release Hillary’s up-to-date detailed medical records. He “sees no reason to put out an update on her health” and denounced the rumors of her ill health as “ludicrous” “trumped-up allegations” that “do not even rise to a level of rebuttal.”

For her part, Hillary’s campaign communications director Jennifer Palmieri blames that tired old trope — “the vast right-wing conspiracy”. Palmieri said, “Donald Trump is simply parroting lies based on fabricated documents promoted by Roger Stone and his right-wing allies”.

The American people disagree.

A new Rasmussen Reports survey found that 59% of voters believe all major presidential candidates should release at least their most recent medical records to the public. That figure is up from 38% of Americans in May 2014, when questions about Clinton’s health were first being raised. (Incredibly, 30% of voters don’t think presidential candidates should have to release their recent medical records; 11% are undecided.)

Dr. Jan Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), thinks that “the questions being raised are legitimate given that it impacts who leads our nation. As a physician, you cannot help but to ask questions.” She said she has received both positive and negative responses to her recent column on the AAPS’s blog which asks whether Hillary “medically unfit” to serve as president.

Fox News says Hillary’s physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack’s office “declined to comment.”

Hillary’s campaign blaming legitimate questions about her health on a “right-wing conspiracy” is almost funny because, as already admitted by the New York Times and CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, it is the MSM who are engaged in a vast left-wing conspiracy to promote, protect, and conceal the truths about Hillary Clinton.

No records that top Clinton aides Mills or Abedin received ethics training

shock

From Daily Mail: State Department records do not show Hillary Clinton’s top aides completing their ethics training on an annual basis as legally required.

A set of documents provided to McClatchy by the Republican National Committee that were later made available online do not show Clinton, her chief of staff Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Deputy Chief of Protocol Dennis Cheng, Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan and others having taken the required course.

The State Department says it’s possible that they did take the yearly ethics trainings and blamed sloppy record keeping for the lack of documentation.

baby laughing

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign said today that it ‘would make sense,’ though, that Clinton’s employees skipped the training ‘since Hillary was planning a criminal enterprise trading government favors for cash.’

The Republican has alleged that Clinton took advantage of her position at the State Department to institute a ‘pay for play’ scheme that rewarded major donors to her family’s charity with government favors.

Trump says he’ll introduce ethics reforms in the executive branch if he wins the White House.

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement Thursday afternoon that Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, should be held accountable for her employees’ negligence. ‘The State Department’s own regulations say the responsibility for carrying out the agency’s ethics program rests with the secretary, and by all accounts, it was never a priority for Hillary Clinton,’ Priebus said.

hillary-clinton-winking-AP-640x480

The GOP elections chief said, ‘The complete absence of records showing Clinton and her top aides completed annual ethics trainings required by federal law is par for the course for her tenure as secretary of state, where the rules didn’t seem to apply and pay-to-play was the name of the game. ‘Too much is at stake in this country to have our next president compromised by conflicts of interest with foreign donors and besieged by one scandal after another.’

The Clinton campaign did not provide McClatchy with a response to the allegations, and it did not immediately respond to a request from DailyMail.com. 

Several of the aides that State could not produce documents still work for Clinton on her campaign staff. Sullivan, Cheng and Abedin all have senior roles in her White House effort. Cheng and deputy assistant secretary Philippe Reines both took their new employee ethics training, McClatchy reported. The documents do not show them completing the requirement in subsequent years.

A spokeswoman for the State Department told McClatchy she could not comment on individual cases because the government is barred from sharing employee records under the Privacy Act.

The State Department official, Elizabeth Trudeau, said that she would, however, ‘caution against drawing any conclusions simply from the absence of documentation provided in response to a FOIA request.’

McClatchy says that officials indicated that State may not have kept track of the records before the training was offered online at the end of Clinton’s four-year tenure.

In one email exchange from Clinton’s final months in office that was obtained by the RNC through a Freedom of Information Act Request Abedin is informed by a State Department official that she is delinquent on the training and must take it online or through an attorney in the next two weeks.  It’s unclear from the documents State provided in response to the RNC’s federal lawsuit whether she complied.

Trump’s campaign accused Clinton of being ‘focused on personal enrichment’ instead of State Department business.  ‘The Middle East went up in flames and ISIS exploded onto the globe. Now, all the people who’ve been paying off Hillary for years are funding her campaign,’ National Policy Director Stephen Miller said.

He added, ‘Mr. Trump has proposed new ethics reforms to restore honor to our government, while Hillary Clinton is calculating how much money she can make selling the office of the Presidency for profit.’

NYT blames Trump for journalists’ biased reporting

Hillary & MSM

A recent survey found that only 6% of Americans trust the media.

But the MSM have outdone even themselves in their coverage of the 2016 presidential election by abandoning all pretenses at being objective. See, for example:

Now, the New York Times (NYT), the premier national U.S. newspaper, not openly admits their abandonment of objective journalism in their coverage of Donald Trump, in an act of unbridled chutzpah, they actually blame Trump for it, arguing that objective coverage only benefits his campaign by providing him with free publicity.

Chutzpah (definition): A Yiddish word derived from the Hebrew word ḥutspâ (חֻוצְפָּה), meaning “insolence”, “cheek” or “audacity”.

Jim RutenbergIn an August 7, 2016 article titled “Trump is Testing the Norms of Objectivity in Journalism,” Jim Rutenberg, NYT‘s mediator, writes:

If you’re a working journalist and you believe that Donald J. Trump is a demagogue playing to the nation’s worst racist and nationalistic tendencies [Note how Rutenberg equates racism with nationalism or love of one’s nation ~Eowyn], that he cozies up to anti-American dictators and that he would be dangerous with control of the United States nuclear codes, how the heck are you supposed to cover him?

Because if you believe all of those things, you have to throw out the textbook American journalism has been using for the better part of the past half-century, if not longer, and approach it in a way you’ve never approached anything in your career. If you view a Trump presidency as something that’s potentially dangerous, then your reporting is going to reflect that. You would move closer than you’ve ever been to being oppositional. That’s uncomfortable and uncharted territory for every mainstream, nonopinion journalist I’ve ever known, and by normal standards, untenable.

But the question that everyone is grappling with is: Do normal standards apply? And if they don’t, what should take their place? […]

But let’s face it: Balance has been on vacation since Mr. Trump stepped onto his golden Trump Tower escalator last year to announce his candidacy. For the primaries and caucuses, the imbalance played to his advantage, captured by the killer statistic of the season: His nearly $2 billion in free media was more than six times as much as that of his closest Republican rival. […]

To justify the media’s abandonment of journalistic objectivity, Rutenberg cites MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough:

Mr. Scarborough, a frequent critic of liberal media bias, said he was concerned that Mr. Trump was becoming increasingly erratic, and asked rhetorically, “How balanced do you have to be when one side is just irrational?

Finally, Rutenberg justifies why journalists must abandon objectivity and fairness when it comes to Trump because they are simply saving Americans from what Rutenberg knows will be a horrible Trump presidency:

It would also be an abdication of political journalism’s most solemn duty: to ferret out what the candidates will be like in the most powerful office in the world.

It may not always seem fair to Mr. Trump or his supporters. But journalism shouldn’t measure itself against any one campaign’s definition of fairness. It is journalism’s job to be true to the readers and viewers, and true to the facts, in a way that will stand up to history’s judgment. To do anything less would be untenable.

In other words, it’s Donald Trump’s fault: He’s crazy, and so journalists shouldn’t be fair in their reporting because their more important job is to prevent someone crazy like him to become President.

Rutenberg is simply saying what my erstwhile socialist friend Stephanie once said, in a fit of frustration after losing an argument: “I’ve made up my mind! Don’t confuse me with facts!”

Rutenberg’s version of Stephanie is:

“We journalists have made up our minds about Trump! There’ll be no objective reporting from us ’cause we don’t want to confuse you with facts!”

How we know the Trump vs. Hillary polls are wrong

The polls keep saying Hillary Clinton is out-polling Donald Trump.

But we know of at least one case in which a major poll was rigged to show Hillary winning.

Breitbart reports, July 30, 2016, that on the heels of a Breitbart News report that shows a 17-point swing towards Trump and away from Hillary, Reuters news service “back-rigged” its polling data to show Hillary in a better light.

As political polling pioneer Pat Caddell explained, Reuters dropped the “Neither” option from their presidential campaign tracking polls and then went back and reconfigured previously released polls to present different results with a reinterpretation of the “Neither” responses in those polls.

Note: Thomas Reuters, owner of the Reuters News Service, is among the top-tier donors ($1-5 million) to the Clinton Foundation. See “News media are big donors to Hillary’s corrupt Clinton Foundation“.

Caddell said Reuters “decided to go back and revise their numbers in a formula that removes voters or allocates them,” and called what Reuters did an unprecedented act of professional malpractice that “comes as close as I have ever seen to cooking the results. I suppose you can get away with it in polling because there are no laws. But, if this was accounting, they would put them in jail.”

Our eyes also don’t lie.

Here’s photographic evidence that the polls are wrong.

Below are pics from Trump rallies (source: Weebly):

Trump rallies1Trump rallies2Trump rallies3Trump rallies4Trump rallies5Trump rallies6

And here’s a huge and really enthusiastic mob at a Hillary rally:
Hillary Clinton rallyBut don’t just take the photographic evidence. Here are some headlines that you don’t see reported by New York Times, Washington Post, or the alphabet TV networks:

Jim Hoft of Gateway Pundit:

“Trump has more than ten times the number of people at his campaign events than Hillary has at hers since August 1st.  More than 100,000 people have shown up for Trump events since the beginning of August (with many more turned away due to the events reaching capacity).  Hillary on the other hand hasn’t even had one tenth of that….”

Intriguingly, despite a majority of opinion polls showing the 2016 presidential election going to Hillary Clinton, a smartphone app developer says his data say Donald Trump will be the victor.

As reported by USA Today, August 13, 2016, Ric Militi, co-founder of San Diego-based Crazy Raccoons and maker of the Zip question and answer phone app that was launched this February, poses questions and polls responses based on an average of 100,000 daily users. Some 64% told Zip they would vote for Trump, compared to 36% for Clinton. In contrast, the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll has Clinton leading Trump, 42% to 36%.

How can Zip’s results be so different? Militi explains:

“We’re not a poll. We’re a conversation, and 100% anonymous. People feel comfortable answering questions without fear of being bullied or being called a racist. People can express themselves safely, and you get a pure answer.”

Why Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton in a landslide

Hillary For Prison 2016

Why Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton in Landslide

by A. Phillip Charles, The Politik, August 4, 2016

WASHINGTON – The Politik is predicting that on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, Donald J. Trump will win a landslide election, to become the 45th President of the United States.

2012 and 2016

In 2012, Barack Obama won reelection with 65.9 million votes.  Mitt Romney finished 5 million votes behind, at 60.9 million.  That earned Obama 332 electoral votes to Romney’s 206.

Just four years earlier, Obama had become the first African American ever to be elected president of the United States, winning the highest amount of votes (69.5 million) by any presidential candidate in history.  Despite his historic nature and relative popularity, his margin of victory decreased from 2008. Consequently, Obama became the first incumbent in seven decades to get reelected with fewer electoral votes and a lower popular vote percentage.

Obama lost approximately 3.6 million votes from 2008 to 2012.  Romney gained slightly on 2008 candidate John McCain’s 59.9 million.

The takeaway from the 2012 election, as it relates to 2016, is that Barack Obama was a once in a lifetime type of candidate.  The first African-American candidate.  He was young.  He was fresh and his candidacy embodied the sort of ‘change’ that so many dissatisfied American’s felt following a long war in Iraq and the financial collapse of the U.S. housing market.

And despite all that popularity, enthusiasm and African-American turnout, he still only attained 51.1% of the popular vote in 2012.

Hillary Clinton stands no chance of besting the numbers of Barack Obama from 2012.  She is far less popular.  She has far less charisma.  She does not inspire enthusiasm, and she comes with a lifetime of corrupt decisions and illegal behavior.

Primary Changes by the Numbers

In 2008, the last time the Democrats did not have an incumbent on the ticket, they had approximately 38 million Primary voters.  In 2016, that number slipped to approximately 30 million.  A loss of 8 million primary voters.

In 2008, Republicans had 21 million primary voters.  In 2012, the number slipped to 19 million.  In 2016 however, the GOP had over 30 million primary voters – approximately 9-10 million more than 2008.

That is a change of approximately 17-18 million voters in favor of the GOP.

John McCain lost by 10 million votes.

Mitt Romney lost by 5 million votes.

And since 2008, the Democrats have lost 8 million primary voters while the GOP has gained about 10 million.

Donald Trump the Rock Star

Trump is the most popular and captivating candidate the party has nominated since Ronald Reagan.  A successful businessman, Trump has been in the world spotlight for years and became a household name over the past decade with a successful reality TV show on NBC, ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘Celebrity Apprentice’.

His name adorns buildings, casinos and resorts all over the world.

Everywhere he has gone, for over a year now, throngs of fans and voters stand in lines thousands deep and hours long.  In early August, in a Daytona Beach arena, Trump drew 8,000 screaming fans, while Hillary could only muster a few hundred the same day at a high school gym in Colorado.  Later that night, in Jacksonville, Trump drew 15,000 people.  This is a normal occurrence on the campaign trail.

Again, Hillary inspires no confidence in voters.  Donald Trump has to turn away far more fans that Clinton can even draw at a campaign event.  This is meaningful as it relates to who actually will make an effort to vote.

To prove how far his national appeal is, Trump won big in every region of the map:  Northeast, Southeast, South, Midwest, Rust Belt, Northwest, West and Southwest.  He won more primary votes than any candidate in the history of the party, and he did so with 17 candidates running.

He won a landslide primary, in a year in which three very popular elected officials from the big states of Texas, Florida and Ohio were running against him.  That alone made it impossible for almost any candidate besides Ted Cruz in Texas, Jeb Bush or Marco Rubio in Florida and John Kasich in Ohio, to win.  Not only did Trump win, but did so with ease.

The Democrats’ Minority Problem

One myth among the typical media narrative is that Republicans have a minority voter problem.  In reality, it’s the Democrats that do.  In 2012, when Barack Obama won only 51% of the vote, it took him winning the black vote 93-6, and it also required historically high turnout from that group.

Hillary, at minimum, needs to match Obama’s 93-6 margin with black voters, and needs every single black voter that turned out in 2012.  That isn’t going to happen.  She may achieve the margin.  She won’t come close to getting the same turnout.

The Democrats have an electoral problem, in that they need 95% of the black vote, with large turnout, just to win a general election.

Not only is a problem today, but it’s a far bigger problem for them in the future.  As groups of a demographic grow in size, they also become more diverse.  The chances are that Blacks will vote less and less for Democrat in the future, as they grow in size and diversify from evolution.

The GOP has been Destroying Democrats in elections since 2009

When it comes to elections, the GOP has been faring better against Democrats over the last 7 years, than they ever have previously.  In 2010, the GOP took back the House of Representatives with a 63-seat pickup, and also grabbed control of 29 of 50 governorships and gained 690 seats in state legislatures.

Then in 2014, The Republicans won 16 seats from Democrats, while only three Republican-held seats turned Democratic. The Republicans achieved their largest majority in the House since 1928.  Combined with the Republican gains made in 2010, the total number of Democratic-held House seats lost under Barack Obama’s presidency in midterm elections rose to 77 with the 2014 midterms.

Other than Barack Obama’s unimpressive reelection against Mitt Romney in 2012, the Democrats have been losing every type of election imaginable to Republicans.

The Variable Factors

Hillary Clinton is also on the losing end of almost all variables that play in elections.

  1. She is the incumbent party seeking a third consecutive term, which is rarely a good thing
  1. The Economy is not producing with 90 million unemployed Americans and only 1.2 % growth.
  1. ISIS and Terrorism is striking all over the western world and within the United States borders.  The Democrats refuse to even say the phrase “Islamic Terrorism.”
  1. Nearly 80% of the country thinks the United States is going in the wrong direction and Hillary Clinton has been directly involved in government for the last 25 years.  In these times, experience is not a good thing.
  1. Trump is unabashedly pro-American while the Democrats give off a perception that they are embarrassed by being associated as an American.
  1. Trump has taken strong positions on two issues that are driving massive new voters to him:  Immigration and Free Trade.  Both of these issues hit right at the heart of the forgotten middle class, that has seen their jobs traded away oversees by their own elected officials.
  1. Over the past 70 or so years, typically the more physically overpowering ticket wins.  Trump/Pence or Clinton/Kaine?  Who seems tougher to you?
  1. Her husband Bill Clinton never received even half of the vote during his two Electoral College victories in 1992 and 1996.  The Clintons are not as popular as the media would have you believe.
  1. Hillary doesn’t have the heart of her party’s voters.  Bernie Sanders did.  And unfortunately for the Democrats, the heart of their party’s voters lost.
  1. Trump, on the hand, is the heart of the party and beat the powerful interests groups trying to steal it from him and his record setting amount of voters.

The Secret-Trump Vote

Don’t even bother looking at a poll.  If they were any accurate or valuable at predicting, then the people who ran them would be billionaires.

As we learned from the DNC-WikiLeaks scandal, the Democratic Party and Mainstream Media manipulate polls for nothing other than headlines and talking points, meant to drive narratives and suppress Republican turnout.

Instead, think of the facts.

In 2012, the voting age population was 235 million, but only 129 million voted.

Both parties left a possible 106 million votes on the table.

Because of Donald Trump’s candidacy, all the rules have been thrown out.  We’ve seen that few of the old political playbook tricks work against him.  Money being spent by his opponents have all gone to waste.

We saw every single professional political pundit in the country get the entire primary season wrong – on both sides.

The media and their phony polling consultants don’t have any clue what turnout will look like.  If they did, they wouldn’t have bungled their Trump and Clinton predictions so badly in the primaries.

What we do know is that Trump is attracting voters from all over the map and into the Republican fold, just to vote for him.  It’s how he unexpectedly massacred 16 opponents in the primary.

It’s how he will massacre Hillary Clinton in the general election.

When the media tells you that this race is close or that Hillary is leading, just simply laugh it all off.

This election is already over and Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States.

Hillary for Prison 2016

Phillip Charles’ analysis and figures are compelling, but Hillary and the Dems will resort to massive voter fraud, and the GOP is crippled by that curséd 1982 Consent Decree that forbids the RNC to challenge voter fraud and, in so doing, effectively gives the Democrats a carte blanche to commit voter fraud.

Clint Eastwood Rips ‘P*ssy Generation,’ Says He’ll Vote For Donald Trump

Trigger warning for the easily-offended special snowflakes.

clint eastwood

From Huffington Post: Clint Eastwood is calling out the “pussy generation” for being too politically correct, and says anyone offended by Donald Trump’s history of racist remarks should “just fucking get over it.” 

In an interview with Esquire magazine, the Academy Award winner said Trump was “onto something” because “he’s just saying what’s on his mind.” “And sometimes it’s not so good,” Eastwood said. “And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”

Eastwood explained:

“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 f*cking get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”

Eastwood also spoke out against political correctness:

“(S)ecretly 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 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. 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.’”

Eastwood said he planned to vote for Trump, but called it a “tough one” and didn’t endorse the Republican presidential candidate.

empty chair

As for that now-famous 2012 Republican National Convention speech where Eastwood lectured an empty chair as if it were President Barack Obama, the actor/filmmaker explained that after a series of speeches praising then-nominee Mitt Romney, he felt he had to do something different:

“And so I’m listening to an old Neil Diamond thing and he’s going, “And no one heard at all / Not even the chair.” And I’m thinking, That’s Obama. He doesn’t go to work. He doesn’t go down to Congress and make a deal. What the hell’s he doing sitting in the White House?

Eastwood’s next film, “Sully,” opens in September and stars Tom Hanks as “Miracle on the Hudson” pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.

Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. says he was blacklisted by Hollywood directors after supporting Donald Trump

Just what I would expect from liberals, you know, the ones who are “tolerant” of the ideas of others.

Actor Antonio Sabato Jr.

Actor Antonio Sabato Jr.

From Fox News: Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. claims he has been blacklisted by Hollywood directors thanks to his speech at the Republican National Convention in July.

The soap opera star spoke with Variety about the backlash he received after voicing his support for Donald Trump at the RNC. “It’s been interesting,” he told Variety. “I’ve had fantastic directors who have said officially to my agents and managers they will never hire me again. They will never even see me for projects. That’s unfair. It’s just like Communism.”

Sabato said he just wanted to voice his opinion. “I was never a politician. I care about my country. I put God first. For the last seven-and-a-half years, I’ve seen this country led by a leader that’s made mistakes. I spoke my mind about it. But because I’m in the industry, you can’t talk about that,” he said.

And it’s not just those in Hollywood that are angry with Sabato’s remarks; the actor said he was also slammed on social media for his political views. “On Twitter, there’s been name calling, and celebrities attacking me. That’s fine. I see it, but I don’t read it. I block them and delete them and move on.”

Despite all of the backlash, the actor has no plans to leave Hollywood behind. “I have my hands in all kinds of businesses. I’m never going to leave Hollywood. I’m going to go after it one way or another,” he said. “I’m just speaking the truth — people don’t know how this business works.”
