Called back to Hannity and here is more of my exclusive interview with clinics what.
Let me ask you we -- a Hollywood does have this image of mobile left you referred to it early on your speech you know.
They're all left wingers out there the left of one and suppose a pretty funny line.
You mentioned earlier some creative idea it's.
You know we're I -- Lear jet limousine liberals they fly around in private jets -- the -- lecture us about our suvs.
They they keep talking about redistribution.
But when you look at their tax return I wonder how much money they given a charity.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- I don't know I think.
Just the nature I've been I think coming off of how -- -- -- activities.
Actions and -- early fifties.
I think cause everybody to move -- kind of the left position.
I -- most people when they're young are are are more idealistic no I was.
You know most keeper of the world are much more liberal when -- when -- young man going up and then after a while and realized that.
Well well for me it was because I found a lot of my liberal friends who -- still.
Have great friendship -- but I.
I found that they weren't that liberals so I thought -- second maybe.
Maybe there's another.
-- -- -- other way tended to go.
But Hollywood there -- a group of people in Hollywood that there -- conservative but by the nature of the word itself.
They're just a -- to speak out.
Then their reticence because they feel that they -- maybe lose workers they'll.
These chastised in some way four were having political views you.
I think maybe you had somebody on your program motorists young lady that somebody was giving a hard time too is threatening.
To not hire.
-- -- she I was coming out for Mitt Romney and that that kind of stuff is it is.
This is inexcusable.
But there are people that think that way -- a Stacey dash down towards the actress him.
His yeah well I know a lot of people who -- -- yeah -- Well maybe she'll be in the next colonies would film.
Let me just play if you because there's going to be one of the most watched ads and one of the biggest -- in this campaign cycle.
And -- -- -- that you did for American crossroads a troll tech.
The last few years America's been knocked down -- 23 million people can't talk shows.
-- four billion dollars every single day and much better from China and someone does.
-- -- Yeah hold -- accountable.
Obama's second term would be rebounded the first and our country just couldn't survive that we need someone to turn around fast and that man -- -- wrong thing.
Just how much time left and the future of our country -- this distinction American crossroads is responsible for the content of this advertising.
You know the thing that really grabbed me about that there is.
You don't you don't have to do this -- Clint Eastwood.
You really feel.
I kind of feel the same way so I think I'm identifying with the U but I sensed -- that -- You really feel that the country we grew up in the land of opportunity.
Is in jeopardy for my reading -- right when you the reason you got involved and you don't have to get.
-- -- -- you're absolutely right I just felt.
One day I tell you.
I know some people who.
But who we've sit around that we -- complaining that whenever you ever step up and do anything and I finally had -- -- and I have got to give us.
Did it did John -- Pat on the back because I was.
So sitting with him and a couple other people's we'll commiserate about the situation with the economy and everything -- says.
-- -- little -- there's anybody in Hollywood ever speak out and I thought you had you know he's right he's right we are kind of chicken.
We sit around you know kind of -- well let somebody else do it.
And so then all of a sudden one day they -- -- -- beyond they -- and see.
And go there a name -- -- what are you gonna say and I said I don't know what I would say it would just say it.
And I -- just say something I mean and that's that's all -- -- -- it.
Some of the chair idea that just came out of the area -- -- I was sitting there and a guy.
Behind the stated whose stage said here you want to sit down.
And I said no one should seek out -- sitting next to podium pieces -- you wanna sit down macedon I just put his desk with an excellent that I did just came up as we're doing it.
So that it was probably at the time I've done this is this I was really stupid what I do that but then afterwards and you know people so I could have said well that was fun.
It may be what did you do a little fun was what I was looking for I don't know.
You know -- why did he get it -- got a lot of people -- But at the united contour bottle I was in the -- too because it -- -- it.
Yeah well that's that's that's the good that's it if it -- so if it makes.
The right people -- -- good that'll wake him up a little bit.
Well we really appreciate being with us and I've been a -- a long time I'm glad -- outspoken.
I think you making a difference I think the idea that you tell people somebody doesn't do the job it's -- to fire.
It's telling people that may be believed -- -- than Barack Obama.
Yet for years and we're not better off so a lot of thank you so much Clint Eastwood for being on the program -- and hope you come back -- my pleasure shot.
