One of Hollywood’s premier tough guys weighs in on Election 2016. And Hillary wishes he hadn’t.
Some precious snowflake will read this, and run off to their “safe space” complaining about how they’ve been triggered. And that’s exactly what’s wrong with this generation.
We’ve got Universities — those centers of higher learning — where young people go to “learn new ideas” while being protected from new ideas their profs might disagree with. And when someone gets offended, they band together, start a hashtag campaign and demand a Dean somewhere gets fired.
‘We’re really in a p***y generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells,’ the 86-year-old said.
‘We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist. Secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up.’
It’s hard to argue with his logic.
Contrast that with what he said about Trump:
‘What Trump is onto is he’s just saying what’s on his mind,’ he said. ‘And sometimes it’s not so good. And sometimes it is.
And he was asked about his choice for President:
‘I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps,’ he told Esquire.
Continuing to discuss Clinton, the actor said: ‘I mean, it’s a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one.‘ [emphasis added]
And why would she want to follow in those footsteps? Obama was, after all, just an empty chair.
