Comedian/actor Tim Allen may never work in Hollywood again -- at least, that’s a concern he shared with Fox News’s Megyn Kelly as he called out his fellow entertainers for bullying Donald Trump supporters.
Allen’s latest hit TV Show Last Man Standing is written by liberals, he said, but his character is a conservative, much like his political leanings — a dangerous thing to admit in Tinsel Town. An even worse thing to do is call out the hypocrites that live there, but he did anyway.
“What I find odd in Hollywood is that they didn’t like Trump because he was a bully, but if you had any kind of inkling that you were for Trump, you got bullied for doing that,” Allen said. “It gets a little hypocritical.”
The TV star recalled his team of writers looking for a bit that would poke fun at Trump for his views on homosexuality, but Allen reminded them there’s no source material for that:
“Whoever said that? Didn’t he wave the flag at the convention? He had the LGBT flag ... I can’t make a joke about it.”
Allen said the things being attributed to Trump is like playing the game of Telephone, where by the time the truth gets around to the last person, it’s a jumbled mess.
Kelly asked how he survives in Hollywood as someone with these views.
“Well, I might not after tonight,” Allen joked.
“I’m really an anarchist,” Allen continued. “That’s how I look at it. I don’t like anybody to tell me what to do. Period.”
“If you think this government works good the size it is — I’m one of these guys, just make it smaller!”
Though Allen questions Trump’s conservatism based on his history as a Democrat, he said Trump was the only clear choice that had a shot at shrinking the government.
Allen ended the segment with a joke:
“L.A. has come up with a safe space for people that voted for Trump… they’re calling it Texas.”
