“Last Man Standing” star Tim Allen has some surprises in store as the show enters its fifth season — and Hillary Clinton fans aren’t going to like them.
“We’re going to drill Hillary,” Allen told FOX411. “It will be horrible personally if Hillary continued [to lead the Democrats], but it will be great for the story line if she continues.”
(Hillary Clinton leading the field is a given for now, but that becomes less sure with each passing day.)
Allen, who plays marketing executive Mike Baxter on the ABC sitcom, was taking part in a Television Critics Association Q&A session when he let it be known that with a presidential election underway, the show will take on more of a political edge.
Before Democrats cry foul, the Republican actor also had a few wise cracks for Donald Trump, the current front-runner for the GOP.
“I sat with a group of liberal Jewish guys who said, ‘When Trump starts to make sense, we know the world is upside down,'” Allen said. “Until I see what’s under that hair, I can’t really support him.”
FOX411 said it remains to be seen how far ABC will let Allen go with his political barbs, pointing out that the network “has several times expressed its unhappiness at Allen’s character labeling President Obama a communist.”
As for who Allen likes in the 2016 presidential election, the comedian pointed to Ohio Gov. John Kasich.
“I went to see him at an L.A. town meeting, which is usually a very liberal forum,” Allen said. “He talked about poor people — the underprivileged and the working poor. It was very un-Republican.
“He’s a Republican that a Democrat could vote for.”
Which is more than enough to temper the hearts of conservatives excited about the jab at Hillary.
