Tim Allen got a kick from ex-President Donald Trump that drove people crazy, the actor revealed in a new interview in which he also explained why he was conservative.
In the latest episode of Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast, the “Last Man Standing” star said his aversion to paying taxes – and not knowing what the government was spending half of his income on – had driven him. to lean politically to the right.
Maron asked Allen, who attended Trump’s inauguration in January 2017 and then aroused anger by comparing being a conservative in Hollywood to living in 1930s Nazi Germany, how he avoided the negative reactions of his conservative views.
“I literally don’t preach anything,” said Allen, who described himself as a fiscal conservative.
“What I have done is just not related, as I call it, to the ‘culture of the us’,” he continued. “I don’t tell anyone how to live. I don’t like it, “We should do this” or “We should do this”. “
“Once I realized the last president pissed people off, I kind of liked it,” Allen added. “So it was fun to say nothing. I did not join the lynching crowd.
Despite his apparent glee at Trump’s division, Allen said he was friends with Bill and Hillary Clinton, but just didn’t think the latter “should have been president.”
“At the end of the day, you’re going the other way,” he added. “There is nothing personal about it. If you don’t like it, wait for the next election.
