    Ever since I was a kid, Clint Eastwood was my favorite actor. I saw him at a restaurant in Boise once and thought he was so cool and was a Republican- or so I thought. Now he is endorsing Bloomberg?
    WTH?

    Is this true? I was hoping it was just click-bait?!

    I am unable to decide which Democrat is the most dangerous to my lifestyle and beliefs. DJT better win in 2020.

    Clearly, a sign that dementia is taking over.

    Mr. B is paying $2500 a month to five hundred people to talk him up before the California primary according to the Daily Caller. Hope he keeps it up. Gives more employment than any of the employment plans when he used the taxpayers' monies.

    Hard to believe.

    Disappointing, if true.

    At the end of it, we have to make our own decisions, and if true, Mr. Eastwood must have his reasons.

    I think he has lost touch with reality. Started when he talked to the chair.

    I'm as big a fan of Clint as anyone. I have been since Rawhide. I too would love to think that this is an aging mind issue but the problem with that is he was in the CBS booth for an hour a couple weeks ago @ the Pebble Beach Pro am and sharp as a tack.

    We need a Dirty Harry movie showing him coming out of retirement with his 44 and many shot/dead bad guys.

    This is disappointing none the less. But have to remember they are ACTORS. We can't expect them to be the real characters they portray in life.

    While elderly Hollywood types can certainly have their opinions about politics, and Mr Eastwood served some time as mayor in an affluent, liberal CA Central Coast town, politics isn't one of the subjects which I typically wait to hear them (even him) discuss to help me form my own opinions.

    He made some great movies, in front of and behind the cameras. Doesn't mean I mistake him for being one of his characters I've liked on-screen, or being someone who can help me form my own opinions about matters of politics.

    Doesn't mean I probably couldn't find any number of other topics I might find interesting to discuss with him, should we ever meet over coffee or a drink (or a cigar).

    Just another person with a preference and an opinion. America.

    We never know who is really Pro-Gun. Mr. Eastwood is after all an actor. When he is working and using guns to sell movies?? When he is pursuing Liberalism is he more himself? We never know for sure? There is a small gun forum called Guns and Game Forum on the web. It seems OK. It is however owned by far left liberals who are involved in the news media.:dunno:

    OMG! It’s official. Clint has flipped his wig.

    I thought he understood that “Dying ain’t much of a living.”

    I still like his movies and he's not a rectum like so many Actor's in Hollywood. He's also got a right to his opinion, like every American. Just because the Democratic Party is hopeless doesn't mean we all adore Trump. I don't.

    Eh, I think it's fake news. If not oh well. It cool to see celebs on our side(James woods) but they have no bearing on my decisions.
