(Liberty Bell) – Outspoken conservative comedian Tim Allen, star of the hit series, Last Man Standing, sat down for a chat on the “WTF With Marc Maron” podcast where he stated that he liked that former President Donald Trump “pissed people off.”
As you might imagine, this sent the world of social media into absolute hysterics, as happens anytime a celebrity has the gumption to state they supported Donald Trump and the things he said while he was in the White House.
According to BizPacReview, Allen’s current series is in its final season on Fox. The actor is now partnering up with his former co-star from Home Improvement, Richard Karn, on a show called Assembly Required, which is set to be a competition show that builds things and will be featured on the History Channel.
At some point in the discussion, Allen was asked if he thinks of himself as an “old school conservative” instead of a “right-wing wack job.”
“Once I started making money I had this silent partner that just took almost half of my money and never gave me anything for it and that was the taxes,” Allen said in reference to the federal government. “I’ve never liked taxes…That’s it, I don’t like it. I work pretty hard for this stuff and I accomplished a lot and I was handicapped by my own errors. It’s all my fault, I get that. But I had this silent partner. I never liked taxes.”
Allen went on to state that he’s always been a “fiscally conservative person with money,” but says he’s always hated the American tax system. He then went on to reveal why he’s not someone who chooses to talk politics openly. He states that it’s because he has not become part of the “we” culture.
“I literally don’t preach anything,” Allen said. “I’m not telling anybody else how to live. Once I realized that the last president p***ed people off, I kind of liked that. So it was fun to just not say anything, [I] didn’t join into the lynching crowd.”
What might surprise a lot of the more conservative fans of Tim Allen is the fact that he’s friends with the Clinton family. Still, despite sharing a friendship with them, he didn’t feel that Hillary should have run for the White House.
“Bill Clinton has been a very genuinely nice guy to me. When he was president, I sent them Christmas stuff from Disney. I sent all the movies we did. I sent it to Bush too and I sent it to the Obamas. I just didn’t think Hillary should have been president. In the end, you go the other direction. I said, ‘It’s nothing personal about it. If you don’t like it then wait til the next election,'” he said.
Allen went on to address his behavior on set, stating that his management team and his wife has called him out for too much cussing.
“Sometimes I’m in that mood. I’m not doing it to piss anybody off. I don’t know what it is with me and language sometimes. I say on stage it’s lazy. There’s probably a better word,” Allen explained. “I’m kind of mean onstage, which I love. One of my favorite bits is about kids…The fact that I make jokes of kids and truly the kids in my neighborhood sense this and they’re like cats. The more they know I don’t like them, the more they hang around me.”
“I would never hurt a child or do anything inappropriate but I like being the smarta– and getting right in their face and go, ‘Are you looking at me? Stop looking at me,'” The Last Man Standing actor said.
It’s shocking to know that he’s friends with the Clintons, but that’s his personal business. The point here is that Allen understands that we’re in a place in culture where folks are getting fed up with not being able to speak their minds. Thus, when a gruff fellow like Trump comes along and speaks boldly and openly, it fires that group of people up a bit.
And right now, we kind of need that in our crazy cancel culture society.
