Legendary actor and filmmaker Clint Eastwood echoed the thoughts of many others in his belief that Khizr Khan, the father of the fallen Muslim-American Army captain killed in Iraq 12 years ago, was being used by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party.

Eastwood offered his opinion to TMZ as he was leaving a West Hollywood restaurant Wednesday evening.

Khan blasted Donald Trump at the Democratic National Convention in an emotional speech in which he’d claimed that had Trump been president when he and his family applied to immigrate to the U.S., they would have been denied entry.

Eastwood told TMZ that Khan “was being exploited by a political party” and that parties “shouldn’t take advantage of some poor slob.”

However, Eastwood also criticized Trump “for making fun of the guy’s dead son,” adding, “but that’s his business.”
