Clint Eastwood for Trump

Clint Eastwood has said that he isn’t thrilled about Donald Trump, noting that the Republican candidate has said “a lot of dumb things.” But he’s supporting him anyway.

“I’d have to go for Trump,” Eastwood said, four years after delivering a Republican National Convention speech to an empty chair. “You know, ’cause [Hillary’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.”

CORRECTION: A previous version of this post erroneously attributed a series of tweets to Clint Eastwood. It is unclear who is tweeting on the unverified Twitter handle @EastwoodUSA.
