Shocker: Clint Eastwood ditches Trump for Bloomberg

Jordan Moreau reports for Variety, Feb. 22, 2020:

Longtime Republican Clint Eastwood is pulling support from Donald Trump in the 2020 election. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, the actor-director signaled that he thinks a different candidate would be the better choice.

“The best thing we could do is just get Mike Bloomberg in there,” he said.

After endorsing Mitt Romney and famously delivering a speech at the 2012 Republican National Convention to an empty chair that represented Barack Obama, Eastwood never officially backed Trump. In a 2016 interview, he expressed displeasure with Trump and Hillary Clinton, saying there’s “much funny business on both sides of the aisle.”

He praised Trump at the time because he was “onto something” and “secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up.”

“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. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist,” he said.

Now, he’s changed his tune a bit on Trump.

While he approves of “certain things” the president has done, he wishes that he would act “in a more genteel way, without tweeting and calling people names. I would personally like for him to not bring himself to that level,” he said.

Clint Eastwood will be 90 years old this May 31.

Disappointing. I don’t think Mr. Eastwood’s opinion is going to help get Mini Mike elected.

I don’t think Clint’s opinion matters one way or the other and it never did. I liked his old movies, especially Pale Rider, but politics..no. “The best thing we can do is get Mike Bloomberg in there”. Really? Why is that the best thing Clint? Never mind

Sorry Clint, but we’re not living in genteel times anymore – and I’d much rather support a President who counter-punches even stronger than he was hit with. Trump’s opponents & critics deserve to be smashed in the mouth!

So, Clint “make my day” Eastwood has dumped President Trump in favor of Mini Mike Bloomfart. We shouldn’t be surprised. The old boy has dumped a number of people. Francis Fisher, former partner Maggie Johnson, former wife Sondra Locke, former partner Dina Ruiz, former wife Jacelyn Reeves, former partner Rebecca Perle, former partner Jamie Rose, former partner Megan Rose, former partner Jo Ann Harris, former partner Gael Greene, former partner Jean Seberg,, former partner Inger Stevens, former partner Jill Banner, former partner and the list goes on ad nauseam . He has sired eight children by six different women. He… Read more »

“He has sired eight children by six different women.” Very impressive, a white version of Bob Marley. But not very genteel

My response to this post was well sourced, correctly documented, and corroborated by cross checks . Had I any doubt about the information, I would not have posted it on the Fellowship. BTW, the list of his assignations is not comprehensive. I just got tired of listing his sexual peccadilloes. Just out of curiosity, what justification do you have for assigning the response to the bullshit category?

I think with the way he’s treated women he could just keep quiet.
