Clint Howard is the lesser known brother, for some, in the Howard family. His brother Ron Howard not only played Opie on The Andy Griffith Show and Ritchie Cunningham on Happy Days, he also went on to become one of the most successful directors in Hollywood.
Clint has had a long Hollywood career of his own. As a child, he had a regular appearance on The Andy Griffith Show as the cowboy outfit wearing, peanut butter and jelly sandwich eating kid who never spoke. Although he has had roles in 16 of his older brother Ron’s films, he has had a long-running acting career outside of those productions, even receiving the MTV Movie Awards Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998.
The politics of the Howard brothers is very different. Ron is known to be a progressive Democrat while Clint is a conservative Republican. He has also been vocal at times politically and weighed in on this year’s presidential race during an interview with The Daily Beast.
In the interview, he shared his perception of Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton using words that will no doubt cause feminazis and the PC police to go ballistic.
“When they look at her I believe what they’re going to see is a photograph of a bitter old grandma Eight years ago I don’t believe that would have been the narrative. But I don’t think she can help it. I don’t think she can put on enough makeup to change people’s perception of her.”
Howard continued, “Eight years ago she was the presumed Democratic nominee, and a fellow came along and, as they say in baseball, he boat-raced her.”
And the attacks will begin in 5…4…3…2…1.
