Jon Voight loves President Donald Trump. He shared his adulation for him on Twitter over the weekend, with mixed results.
The 80-year-old Oscar winner posted a series of pro-Trump videos on Twitter that he said hopes will rally Republicans before the 2020 election.
In one clip, he said: [“People of the Republican party. I know that you’ll agree with me when I say that our president has our utmost respect and our love. This job is not easy, for he’s battling the left and their absurd words of destruction. I’ve said this once, and I’ll say this again. Our nation has been built on the solid ground from our forefathers and there is a moral code of duty that has been passed on from President Lincoln. I’m here today to acknowledge the truth.”] SOUNDCUE (:43 OC: . . .acknowledge the truth.)
He added that because of Trump “our country is stronger, safer, and with more jobs.” Voight, who won an Oscar for his role as a Vietnam vet in 1978’s Coming Home, continued: “Don’t be fooled by the political left because we are the people of this nation that is witnessing triumph. So let us stand with our president, let us stand for this truth that President Trump is the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln. God bless America.”
The response has been mixed. Several urged Angelina Jolie, his daughter, to “stage an intervention.” The pair have had a strained relationship for years.
Alyssa Milano also piped up, dubbing Voight an “F-lister” celeb just trying to “stay relevant.”
“Stay in your lane, Jon!” she tweeted.
