There are very view “mavericks” in Hollywood, most are simply uninformed individuals doing exactly what they do best “parrot” someone else’s words, and pretend to be something they’re not.
Authenticity to them simply means validating each others like-minded views, and then along comes iconic actor/director Clint Eastwood, the personification of authenticity with a simple message that everyday Americans understand.

That Donald Trump (like him or not) is the real deal, authentic, someone who speaks his mind, and doesn’t back down.

In an interview with Esquire, Eastwood once again took on a wide-ranging of issues, and also his assessment of Trump stating; “He’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up, that’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p*ssy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells.”

And although Eastwood supports Trump, he wasn’t about to simply give him a pass saying: “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 f**king get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”

No doubt Eastwood like Trump has seen their share of history, and like most over the age of 60, there’s a healthy perspective in understanding issues, and although Eastwood doesn’t agree with everything Trump says, he appreciates Trumps candor and frankness.

“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.”

However Eastwood acknowledged that given the choice between the two candidates, that he would most likely go for Trump, citing that a Hillary Administration, would simply be an extension of Obama’s policies saying:

“I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps,” he said, calling Clinton “a tough voice to listen to for four years.”
