Clint Eastwood, Donald Trump and the scourge of PC

Speaking to Esquire magazine earlier this month, Clint Eastwood told the US, and the rest of the world, to ‘get over’ Donald Trump’s racism. The beloved actor acknowledged that Trump has ‘said a lot of dumb things’, but said it was our contemporary offence-obsessed culture that really annoyed him.

Trump is ‘on to something’, Eastwood said, ‘because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up. That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re a really pussy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells.’
