Clint Eastwood, at eighty-six, is still one of the biggest names in Hollywood. In 2012, Eastwood appeared at the RNC to stump for Romney and made fun of Obama on stage by talking to an empty chair.

This time around, however, the-tell-it-like-it-is actor hasn’t said much in the way of the race for the White House. Until now.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, Eastwood took a blowtorch to the politically correct crowd, and the what he dubs “pussy generation.”
First, he responded about how Trump had used his scowl while campaigning:
“But 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 pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff.

When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist. And then when I did Gran Torino, even my associate said, “This is a really good script, but it’s politically incorrect.” And I said, “Good. Let me read it tonight.”

The next morning, I came in and I threw it on his desk and I said, We’re starting this immediately.”
Eastwood clarified what he means by “pussy generation”:
“All these people that say, “Oh, you can’t do that, and you can’t do this, and you can’t say that.” I guess it’s just the times.

What Trump is onto is he’s just saying what’s on his mind. And sometimes it’s not so good. And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”
Eastwood then explained that the pussy generation is the also the generation that doesn’t want to work.

But he’s not calling his comments about Trump an endorsement either:
“I haven’t endorsed anybody. I haven’t talked to Trump. I haven’t talked to anybody. You know, he’s a racist now because he’s talked about this judge. And yeah, it’s a dumb thing to say.

I mean, to predicate your opinion on the fact that the guy was born to Mexican parents or something. He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides. 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***ing get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”
Eastwood revealed what he hopes to see change:
“I’d say get to work and start being more understanding of everybody—instead of calling everybody names, start being more understanding. But get in there and get it done. Kick ass and take names.

And this may be my dad talking, but don’t spend what you don’t have. That’s why we’re in the position we are in right now. That’s why people are saying, “Why should I work? I’ll get something for nothing, maybe.”
Then, he took a big swing at Hillary:
“What about her? I mean, it’s a tough voice to listen to for four years. It could be a tough one. If she’s just gonna follow what we’ve been doing, then I wouldn’t be for her.”
Asked if he would vote Trump, Eastwood said, “I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps. There’s been just too much funny business on both sides of the aisle. She’s made a lot of dough out of being a politician.”
