Comedian and actor Tim Allen, star of the hit sitcom Last Man Standing on ABC, is about to air its 100th episode on Friday, and Allen was interviewed about the show by The Hollywood Reporter on Thursday in advance of the milestone.
Tim Allen, one of the few in Hollywood who is not a leftist lunatic or a limousine liberal, weighed in on the presidential race and said that his political party is the one that would get America out of its gargantuan debt problem.
Allen told THR that Bill and Hillary Clinton were like the sexually transmitted disease herpes. “Just when you think they’re gone, they show up again.”
Here’s an excerpt:
Who scares you?
Well, we asked the female writing staff if they’d vote for Hillary just because she’s a woman, and they all said yes. So then the question was, “So if Sarah Palin was the female?” They all choked and they had to say, “Oh God, yes, we’d vote for her.” I didn’t quite buy it. I don’t think you should vote for somebody just because they’re tall, thin, yellow, green, whatever. Bernie Sanders, as nice a guy as he is, none of that shit’s going to happen. And Trump can’t send everybody to Mexico or whatever the f— he said. But give that guy the roads, bridges, infrastructure, power grid — just have him fix that shit for four years. He’s good at that. And he’s a businessman so he understands how debt load works. Forget the stupid shit he says about immigrants. That’s just ignorant. But he might be able to do the stuff that really needs fixing.
So you’re not opposed to Trump?
I’m not opposed to anybody if their workload matches their bullshit load.
Why has the show gone after Hillary but not Trump?
It’s a little surprising to me. We have a very liberal writing staff, so I’m surprised they haven’t taken a shot at him. But we’re not sure he’s going to last, whereas the Clintons are like herpes: Just when you think they’re gone, they show up again.
Pretty funny stuff with a real element of truth to it, as all humor must have in order to work.
If you haven’t seen Last Man Standing, Tim Allen plays a politically incorrect family man who manages an outdoor store and whose personality is comparable to a modern day Archie Bunker.
Allen frequently takes well-aimed jabs at liberalism, Obama, Hillary Clinton and even Joe Biden on the show, and they are always very, very funny.
