WATCH: Tim Allen Is FED UP With Trump Hating Hollywood “Thought Police”, CRUSHES Them With NO MERCY
It’s tempting to believe that the entire entertainment industry – Hollywood, Broadway, music, videos and performers – is all liberal, all the time.
Certainly the most vocal stars are the ones telling crowds they “dream of blowing up the White House,” the same ones who vowed to leave the country if Donald Trump was elected president, refused to perform at inaugural festivities, appear on satire shows, film videos depicting the assassination of the president, comparing him to Hitler and threatening to “pimp out” the First Lady.
But within Hollywood, there are those who brave the overwhelmingly liberal ethos and the very real threat of being blackballed, not being cast or losing gigs for the unpardonable sin of being – horrors – conservative.
Tim Allen, the 1990s entertainment phenomenon who at one point starred in the top-rated television series, highest grossing movie and held the top spot in the New York Times best-seller list, is one of those conservatives and spoke candidly on the late-night talk show, Jimmy Kimmel Live! about what that means.
“You’ve gotta be real careful around here. You get beat up if you don’t believe what everybody believes,” the 63-year-old star told Kimmel when asked about his attendance at Trump’s inauguration in January.
“This is like ’30s Germany. I don’t know what happened.”
Allen was one of the few Hollywood stars who dared to make positive comments about then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, at one point saying that the billionaire builder “seemed like the candidate who might be able to do the stuff that really needs fixing.”
Offering a practical perspective to the highly charged, often emotionally overwrought rhetoric used by stars like Cher, Barbara Streisand, Rosie O’Donnell, Whoopi Goldberg and others, Allen – who starred as Tim the Toolman in “Home Improvement,” told the Hollywood Reporter, “Give that guy the roads, bridges, infrastructure, power grid — just have him fix that sh*t for four years. He’s good at that. And he’s a businessman so he understands how debt load works.”
Allen has also gone as far as to call his fellow stars “hypocritical” for their characterization of Trump as a “bully.”
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully,” Allen told FOX’s Megyn Kelly after Trump’s surprise win in the November election. “But if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that. And it gets a little bit hypocritical to me.”
The 1990s superstar made over $1 million per episode when “Home Improvement” was the number one television show and is not hurting for roles, but other actors have hinted that expressing anything but the accepted “script” about Donald Trump can be a career-ending mistake.
