Clint Eastwood: Donald Trump Challenging ‘Kiss-Ass Generation’

Actor-director Clint Eastwood believes that Donald Trump is benefitting from a trend in American culture by saying what he believes, despite criticism from all sides.

“He’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,” Clint Eastwood said in an interview with Esquire. “That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells.”

Eastwood specifically cited Trump’s comments criticizing a judge who was born to Mexican parents, but indicated he was tired of the media fueled controversy

“He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides,” he said “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.”

Eastwood said that he hadn’t spoken to Trump about an endorsement, and hadn’t endorsed anyone for president. He clarified that he didn’t agree with everything that Trump said, but indicated that it was refreshing to see an unfiltered politician.

“He’s just saying what’s on his mind and sometimes it’s not so good,” he said. “And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”

Clint Eastwood Praises Trump, Carson — ‘Anyone of Them Would Be Better Than What We Got’ (Video)

Eastwood replied. “I think people are looking for somebody who is outspoken and who isn’t afraid. And he seems to have kind of a fearless attitude.”

Thursday on “Extra,” Hollywood actor Clint Eastwood weighed in on the 2016 Republican presidential field.

“I think there’s quite a few of them who are really good people,” Eastwood said.

Co-host Mario Lopez asked Eastwood about his feelings on Trump, to which Eastwood said he seems to fill a desire of what people want in a candidate. He also spoke of Carson and said any of those would be better than the current president, Barack Obama.

“You know, I don’t know,” Eastwood replied. “I think people are looking for somebody who is outspoken and who isn’t afraid. And he seems to have kind of a fearless attitude. I like Ben Carson because he is kind of a common sense guy. Anyone of them would be better than what we got.”

Eastwood was also asked about the prospects of his attendance at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland next year, to which Eastwood said he might now be wanted, referring to his 2012 appearance at the event in Tampa.

The 25 Toughest Movie Characters

From mighty to mightiest.

25. Frank Martin (Jason Statham) in the Transporter films

We love Statham in crazy mode (Crank), military mode (Expendables), and laugh-out-loud mode (Spy). But when it comes to no-fuss walloping, we’d prefer that his well-tailored delivery man is in the driver’s seat. A man of few words is capable of many a sports-car barrel roll.

24. Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) from Pulp Fiction

Sorry, God. Jules owns Ezekiel 25:17. Quentin Tarantino’s retro hitman may not know what they call a Quarter Pounder with Cheese in France, but he’s a master of the intimidation speech and commensurate follow-through. When he sets out to deliver “great vengeance” and “furious anger,” he means it.

2. “Dirty” Harry Callahan (Clint Eastwood) from the Dirty Harry films

Eastwood graduated from his Spaghetti Western poncho to Harry Callahan’s tweed suits without losing an ounce of gruff. It’s hard to tell how much effort the actor has to put in to making Callahan look so damn cool. Mystery comes naturally to Eastwood. The facial crags, squint, and lanky physique give him that cowboy swagger. Then he jumps off a bridge on to a moving car and, suddenly, you don’t know the man at all. “Do I feel lucky?” You should, Harry.

1. Lee (Bruce Lee) from Enter the Dragon

Hollywood can find chiseled leading man types no problem. Fighters who can do their own stunts? That’s why they invented special effects. Bruce Lee swept into American cinema like one of his patented kicks—he was the real deal. “Lee” from Enter the Dragon took full advantage of his talents, in major part thanks to the real Lee’s ambition to perfect him. He could take and deliver a punch, but he also gave a damn about culture. He saved people with swift fury. That is tough.
