    And since when do we care about the opinion of the court jester, minstrel, or the fool?

    they are entertainers for Pete's sake, not geniuses!

    I could care less about what anyone thinks. I do care about the magnitude of what influences ignorant people in this country however.

    He's either going senile, been bought off by Mini Mike, or has been brainwashed by the propaganda from the **fake** news media, which is our Country's greatest enemy **by far**.

    I would endorse Bernie.

    Trump would also endorse Bernie. In Open Primary states, GOPers should vote for Bernie.

    Then we all sit back and watch how Dems is going to handle Bernie.

    "All that is necessary for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing."

    When I see a billionaire wannabe tyrant buy his way in - there needs to be something done.

    Millions in smear ads, buying people out, buying Virginia state election, buying gun control at state level outside his residence, trying to flip Texas blue with his money. Eastwood had to have been bought.

    You cannot change the way stupid people vote but there are solutions to this problem. If you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.

    The entertainers may not be smarter than us but they get a lot more attention. People who will never see our post here will see the Hollywood narrative and maybe vote that way.
    If it true that Clint has endorsed Bloomberg I feel inclined to forgive him as he is getting really old. Most people his age have been dead for 20 years. He is doing good just being able to move. :fred:

    You're right, he's just an actor who can cast only 1 vote. However, celebrity voices are louder than ordinary voices, and as long as Eastwood was a standout Republican who favored our candidates, his endorsement was highly regarded. When James Woods has defended President Trump's policies, we applauded him. The Hollywood political scale is tipped so far in favor of Liberals, we understandably celebrate when one of the industry's most famous stars stands to be counted for our side.

    Now, because of one public statement against President Trump's rhetoric, we have turned on Eastwood like a pack of angry dogs. Without consideration of what's really behind his remarks, many are writing him off as a traitor. Without acknowledging that lots of good Republicans, Independents and Libertarians across the land dislike the President's rhetoric, Eastwood has been censured severely.

    Damn. We are an angry bunch.

    I think what's he doing is not trying to help Bloomberg.

    I think he's trying to sabotage Sanders.

    Sanders has got to be the last choice.

    Agreed. That is unfortunate. I do not understand why some people give them (celebs) this amount of "power".

    I have never really been a fan of Clint Eastwood, yep I have seen SOME of his movies. Yep it was o.k. with me that he supported Trump, but if he now wants to support the P.O.S. Bloomberg - screw him!

    Let us not forget that he is an "Actor" and actors are paid to say anything!

    Eastwood couldn't care less. He's at the end of his chain, and is probably dealing with some dementia issues as well. He'll endorse wherever the money is coming from.
