There’s little doubt that Hollywood is a bastion of progressive orthodoxy, and that few within that industry, be they actors, producers, directors, or even the guy that moves around the props can survive within that environment, if they’re conservative.
And therefore its far batter to stay silent, unless of course you’re one of the very few that can actually transcend that destructive ideology, like iconic actor Jon Voight, who along with legendary actor/producer/director Clint Eastwood, can pretty much say and do what they want in support of Donald Trump, with a minimum about of fallout to his career.
Voight was out and about in “la la land” when a reporter for TMZ asked him about Trump’s “Second Amendment” dust-up, and then actually changed Trump’s comments by inserting the word “assassination,” which immediately drew a blistering response from the 77-year old iconic actor; “He didn’t say that word!”
Voight visibly animated began schooling the reporter saying, “Don’t do that, don’t distort what he said.”
Although the brief exchange was a bit heated Voight managed to keep his good sense of humor and continued his dialog with the reporter;
“You can be in a lot of trouble if people want to distort your words, that’s what he goes through. All the time, every time. He’s being attacked continuously. They’re taking apart everything he does. He made a wonderful speech yesterday. Everybody should sit down and listen to that speech, because it’s full of substance and it tells you what the problems are, and it tells you how to answer those problems.”
Voight ended the impromptu sidewalk interview by suggesting that the reporter was on the “other side”, then playfully took a boxer’s stance and challenged the apparently younger man to a fight…all in fun of course.
