Actor Tim Allen didn’t mince words during a profanity-laced interview where he dished it out on Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and what he really thinks of President Obama.
Allen is celebrating the 100th episode ABC’s hit-series “Last Man Standing” when he sat down to talk with The Hollywood Reporter. The show is a standout due to its politically incorrect humor, and Allen’s right-wing character, Mike Baxtor. Although, Allen says there are differences between himself and the part he plays.
“[Baxtor’s] milder than I am. You wouldn’t want to hear what I have to say. Escalate Mike Baxter with profanity and that’s basically me,” Allen said. “He’s much more tepid because he’s a business owner.”
Speaking of business owners, Donald Trump is high on Allen’s political radar.
“Trump can’t send everybody to Mexico or whatever the f— he said. But give that guy the roads, bridges, infrastructure, power grid — just have him fix that shit for four years. He’s good at that. And he’s a businessman so he understands how debt load works,” Allen said.
“I’m not opposed to anybody if their workload matches their bullshit load,” he said, referring to Trump.
Allen maintains that his support of Trump is not the reason “Last Man Standing” writers only seem to take shots at Hillary.
“It’s a little surprising to me. We have a very liberal writing staff, so I’m surprised they haven’t taken a shot at him. But we’re not sure he’s going to last, whereas the Clintons are like herpes: Just when you think they’re gone, they show up again.”
Even with that, Allen says he doesn’t get to say everything he’d like, and added there’s one topic that riles him most.
“Unearned responses, unearned praise, unearned income: I have opinions about it. When you watch the debates, on both sides you see clowns who say shit that ain’t ever going to happen, but lately one party is the free shit party. They are just telling people they’re going to get all sorts of free shit.”
When it comes to Obama, Allen doesn’t seem to be a big fan.
“We got network notes saying you can’t call the president a communist. So, of course, I really wanted to. I do it in rehearsal all day long.”
“Last Man Standing”s’ 100th episode is scheduled to air January, 29th on ABC.
Below is a lively interview from last September where Allen discusses the show, his character, and politics:
